Updates December 2009

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!!

    New features are added to Sikh Sangeet site:

  • Profile system. For example, admin’s profile list admin’s submissions in terms of playlists, tags, shabads, and reviews. We also store your avatars full size (as uploaded) to show on your profiles.
  • Multiple servers to stream and download. Because our current server is overloaded and uses too much bandwidth, causing overuse charges.
  • Tabs are faster. So, it is easier and faster to read shabads and download tracks.
  • New Galleries in our Gallery (thanks to volunteer moneysingh)
  • New Watermarks in our Gallery (thanks to volunteer Jasmeet Singh Bansal)
  • Registration: username restrictions are relaxed. Now you can use spaces, underscores, and hyphens in your username.
    Bugs fixed

  • Main page tab slideshow was picking tabs randomly
  • Registration: error handling is fixed, avatar system is fixed
  • Profiles: avatar handling is fixed

Everybody thank Waheguru for all of this.

Integrated with SikhiToTheMax to provide Shabad lyrics

As you all know, Sikh Sangeet is pulling in Shabads from SikhitotheMax database so that we can show shabads on Sikh Sangeet website, as people are listening. However, we need your help in connecting audio shabads to their text.

Here is an example album where track 02, 03, 04, 05 are all readable. You just click on “Shabad” tab and press “Read Shabad”. Link: Various – Bollywood Gurbani Tracks (Sikh Sangeet Compilation)

So if you want to volunteer by linking the shabads, here are the steps:
1. Login to Sikh sangeet account. (Sign up if you have not)
2. Go to the shabad/album that you want to add the Shabad for.
3. Play the shabad if you need to.
4. Find that shabad in SikhiTotheMax
5. When you search, remember to click the “Shabad” button in the search results.
6. Now look in the address bar, the link will be something like this: http://sikhitothemax.com/page.asp?ShabadID=20555 (note this last number)
7. In Sikh Sangeet, click the “Shabad” tab right below the track you just listened to.
8. Put the Shabad ID in that input box, and click the button “Add Shabad”.

Once you have done this, I will make sure the info is correct and all sangat will be able to read the Shabad lyrics.

Remember your little seva will do a lot for the thousands that use this website.

Sikh Sangeet Update Nov 2, 2009

To celebrate Guru Nanak Dev ji’s birthday, we’re putting out the next release of Sikh Sangeet. In this release, we’ve bridged 3 of our sites: forum, gallery, and SikhSangeet.com. So this means that when you sign up/in at SikhSangeet.com, you will automatically signed up/in at the forum and gallery, with the same login username/password.

This will help create a simpler Sikh Sangeet interface and we hope you enjoy the effort that we’ve put to make this seemingly-simple integration possible.
