Album Information Integrated on ReMix Pages

Recommended Posts

Not a HUGE deal, but still kinda nice & logical - we've gone ahead and integrated associated album info on ReMix detail pages, when relevant. You can see that a mix was featured on an album, there's a link to that album, and the album cover artwork appears above the game screenshot/box art. It's the little things, right?

Tasty Examples:

hey, dunno if this is where I post this. I just noticed that one of my mixes doesn't have the album info for it:

http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01112/

I can't figure out if it's because someone missed it or there are slight differences between it and the album version (they're not really significant differences though).

anyway, nice and useful!

What about original albums by the artist?

Nope; we are first and foremost a resource for VGM, not originals, and maintaining that scope keeps things manageable. Of course, I pimp original works in writeups, and when we go live w/ blogs that will give artists yet another way of promoting anything not explicitly VGM-related... in this case, the link is *specific* to the ReMix itself, not the artist. I used the term "Featured on" because it's a little loose, but what we're really referring to is the album where the mix itself was originally released.

I *knew* there was something from Chozo - thanks for mentioning it, fixed.

Can we integrate something onto the Album reference page (such as this: http://ocremix.org/album/3/super-metroid-relics-of-the-chozo) that shows which remixes from the album have been posted? Those pages look sort of crowded but if the album associations are already in the database, it shouldn't logistically be too difficult to implement, right? :-)

Thanks for this!

Code is already there, challenge is purely GUI/layout related... I wanna do Jquery tabs for this sort of thing, might take a bit but it's "on the list"
