  • Idea?

    I'm currently developing v1.1 of my file-based blogging system. One of the features I'm most likely going to add is a Lyrics Section. What this allows you to do is specify information in four boxes:
    - Song Name (To Live is to Hide)
    - Song Artist (Lacuna Coil)
    - Song Lyrics
    - Song Short (for the URL, like lyrics/lyrics.php?s=liveishide or lyrics/liveishide.php)

    Whenever you add the above, lyrics.php will have a list of all current songs added. I'm even going to add one of those search boxes that uses Google to find things from a certain site (in this case, a fast lyrics site with a variety of lyrics, though I've yet to find one).

    Anyway, what I'm asking is, what do you think of the idea? Not how it's being done and everything because I know everyone will say "Use a database", but what do you think of having a lyrics section in a blog?

    Thanks.

    My honest opinion is why would anyone want a lyrics section in their blog?

      Agree

      An image gallery would be better for most users
      That's the end of that!

        Because I often post lyrics to songs in my blog.

        And I host my images on another server.

          But by the sound of your post you are making a script to release to the public? I don't think that many other people post lyrics in their blogs (at least I've never seen anybody do it)

              Yea I run a blogging site and nobody has ever asked me for a lyrics section- I guess if they want to post lyrics they simply do it in an entry...

              Also, why would you be using file-based system? At least go with SQLite

                You need to walk before you run--my blog is my first script, and I wanted to code something easy before I move on to something harder .

                  I find dealing with a raw flat-file system is harder and more complicated than using something like SQLite

                  But good luck
