Server serving up EVERY playlist to clients

Feel free to post bug reports here. I need exact, detailed steps showing me how I can re-create the bug on my machine, so give as much info and detail as possible.

Server serving up EVERY playlist to clients

Post by DeusExMachina »

Did we ever figure this out?
Sometimes the server machine refuses to send the standard singer playlists to certain browsers on certain machines, but instead serves up EVERY playlist on the host machine!

Yup. And can make no heads or tails as to why. Even on the same machine, same singer, Firefox might do it, but Safari will be fine. Or Plainview (a kiosk that uses webKit) might screw up, but Firefox will load it just fine.
It's SO weird. Something odd on the server end, definitely.

Any idea what might be the distinction on the client side? Wondering if the request being passed to the server from the client that populates that list is somehow being passed by the server to deliver something that it shouldn't. Like, since playlists aren't hardwired, it has to be something in how kJams decides to populate the variable that is then used to populate the data served back to the client.

At this point I am more curious than expectant of a solution (as I can always work around it by launching another browser.)

hmm, i think the problem was in the javascript or html (server folder) code? and you actually fixed it?

I think I fixed something else that on SOME machines bypassed the issue entirely. But I think the issue was still there, and it's come back to bite me/us.
