All screens in the DisOrder web interface have a set of hyperlinks at the top. You can use these to visit the various screens described below. Note that if you are not logged in some of these will be greyed out.
This screen displays the currently playing track (if there is one) and lists all the tracks in the queue (the track that will be played soonest being listed first.) Where possible, estimated start times are given.
Each track has a button next to it. For the currently playing track this can be used to stop playing the track before it has finished. For a track in the queue it removes the track from the queue.
Depending on the server configuration, you may be able to do this for any track, or only for tracks you submitted or that were randomly picked. See the "restrict" option in disorder_config(5) for more details.
Artist and album names are hyperlinks to the relevant locations in the Choose screen (see below).
This screen is almost identical to Playing except that it includes extra management features.
At the top of the screen are the following controls:
Below this is the same table of current and queued tracks as for the main playing screen, but with extra buttons for managing the queue. The and buttons on each track move that track around in the queue. Similarly the and buttons move each track to the head or tail of the queue. Depending on server configuration, it may be that only trusted users can move tracks around the queue.
This screen displays recently played tracks, most recent first. The button can be used to edit the details for a track; see Editing Preferences below.
The number of tracks remembered is controlled by the server configuration. See the "history" option in disorder_config(5) for more details.
This screen displays tracks recently added to the database, most recent first. The button can be used to edit the details for a track; see Editing Preferences below, and clicking on the track title will add it to the queue.
The time tracks are remembered for is controlled by the server configuration. See the "noticed_history" option in disorder_config(5) for more details.
This screen allows you to choose a track to be played, by navigating through the directory structure of the tracks filesystem. The following buttons appear:
|This button can be used to edit the details for a track; see Editing Preferences below.|
|This button plays all the tracks in a directory, in order. This is used to efficiently play a whole album.|
The form can be used to edit artist, album and title fields for the track as displayed, or to set the tags for a track, or to enable or disable random play for the track.
Tags are separated by commas and can contain any other printing characters (including spaces). Leading and trailing spaces are not significant.
Random play for any given track is enabled by default, but you can use this screen to disable it for undesirable tracks.
This screen allows you to search for keywords in track names. If you specify more than one keyword then only tracks containing all of them are listed. Results are grouped by artist, album and title.
It is possible to limit results to tracks with a particular tag, by using tag:TAG among the search terms.
Some keywords, known as "stopwords", are excluded from the search, and will never match. See the "stopword" option in disorder_config(5) for further details about this.
This screen has two different versions.
1. When no user is logged in, it has a login form and a registration form. If you do not have a username and password, fill in and submit the registration form. You will be emailed an email with a confirmation URL that you must visit. Only after visiting this URL will your login become active.
Once you have a username and password, you can use the login form to authenticate yourself to the web interface. Note that this is your primary DisOrder password, which (in old installations) may differ from your original web password.
2. When you are logged in, this screen instead has a form to change your email address or password, and a logout button.
If you cannot play a track, or it does not appear in the database even after a rescan, check the following things:
The user the server runs as is determined by the user directive in the configuration file. The README recommends using jukebox for this purpose but it could be different locally.
