Recordings Section Now Open to Submissions

I've reconfigured the Recordings section so that authenticated users can now submit recordings without sending them to me first. If you're logged in, all you have to do is click the "Create Content" on the left sidebar under your personal block. Then click "Recording" and you will be taken to a recording submission form. From there, you can follow the instructions and submit a recording to the site yourself. Make sure you follow the directions carefully, and remember that right now I am only allowing YouTube videos to be submitted.

For now, I will let all submissions go through without approval, because I think you all can handle this on your own :) But if there are problems, I'll make it so the recordings have to but approved before they go up.

A quick overview of how to submit a recording:

1) Click "Create Content"
2) Click "Recording"
3) Enter a title for the recording.
4) Enter the YouTube video ID of the recording.
5) Optionally enter a link to a tab for the song being played.
6) Optionally enter some comments about the video.

In addition to being able to create new videos, you'll also be able to edit and delete any recordings you create, and I've applied proper permissions to all recordings submitted in the past, so you can edit and delete them as well. All you need is a registered account on the site and you can add as many recordings as you want. Have fun :).

If there are any problems, questions, concerns, etc., please post them in this topic in the forum.

New layout, w00t

Well, I just put up the new layout after having worked on it for quite some time. I know there are quite a few issues to be worked out, especially in the forum. I need to figure out exactly where I'm gonna put ads and some other things, and there's a bunch of little incomplete areas around the site. But I've been debugging issues for the last 3 hours and I have just lost the will power to go on. Time for me to hit the hay.

Revamped Recordings Section

I've made a lot of changes to the recordings section. You'll notice it looks a lot different, and there are now YouTube thumbnails for every recording (well most of them). From now on I'm only allowing YouTube videos to be submitted as recordings. No MP3's or anything else.

The good thing is that you can now submit your own recordings to the site, without sending them to me. Just go to Create Content on your user name link on the left sidebar, and fill out the Recording submission form. Make sure you get the YouTube video ID.

There's a lot of bugs and what not that I need to work out but I'm so tired right now, I'll take care of them later. Enjoy.

***UPDATE***

I'm temporarily disabling the ability for people to create new recordings. I found some issues that I didn't think about and I need to figure out how to solve them before I can restore recording creation ability. Sorry.
