Hi. I installed the latest version of the plugin, I set my status with the correct placeholder, and I see the status message updating in Pidgin (the placeholder is replaced with the song name). But others see my status with the placeholder not replaced...
ok.... checked the plugin source and figured it out. it only works with saved status messages.
You could as well haev figured that out by simply reading the documentation / installation guide.
Yes, I have read again the guide and finally found where this is mentioned. This took some perseverance, as the site is down most of the time ("Server is currently too busy; please come back later").
P.S. I have modified the plugin to use the old API (radio/np.php) as it seems more reliable (the current API reports songs in the wrong order, and the nowplaying attribute is practically arbitrary).
