New MACCA-Songs lookup

Postby Mike » Fri Sep 24, 2010 6:57 pm

As part of ongoing site improvements I've changed the song listing method so to be much faster and more information is accessible much easier. Using lighboxes that pop up makes for a pleasant display of the info. Info such as track notes, singles, covers, sleeves, audio and video are being added almost daily. I will be adding a keyword(s) search feature soon, so you can type in "band on" and of course will give you resulting matching including all band on the run.

When click track info you now see sleeve covers and lyric, chord, audio, video links. Try clicking on the links to see the display, I used Another Day as an example as shown below.

Got lots of things just "this close" to completion. Like what I'm calling Smart Search, the first of it's kind on a Beatle related site. Anyways you start typing in the text box say the first two letter of band on the run, "ba" and it will spit out all the songs with "ba", then if you keep typing, "ban", well you get it. Just like the new Instant Google below is an example, should get that part complete next week. Note I do plan to update the entire McCartney songs including all known collaborations and plan to add both bootleg and the Beatle catalog for lookup. Note the sample below will auto suggest but it isn't linked to function to jump to actually get songs.

Check out the sample in the first post. I've changed it from Another Day to Junior's Farm cuz I've got videos for that one. I'll be adding lots more stuff and hooks right into Youtube and Amazon.
