Checklist before going live

Before your product goes live, please take 5 minutes to read this checklist and make sure that you’ve got everything covered.

  • Read the API Terms of Services to be sure your application complies. Not sure about something? Write us at: support@musixmatch.com
  • Check your API calls limits, do they fit the expected traffic?
  • Our lyrics are UTF-8 encoded. Are you handling the encoding correctly?
  • Make sure you have correctly implemented:
  • whenever you display lyrics in a page, show also the value of lyrics_copyright you received from track.lyrics.get
  • the lyrics tracking script to count the lyrics visualizations (track.lyrics.get). To check this, login into the admin panel, check the stats page under the voice “lyrics visualization credits”. If it shows some numbers, it works!
  • Don't forget to add the "powered by" image provided by Musixmatch and have it linked to www.musixmatch.com

Web traffic from Japan

Due to a special agreement in Japan we require that copy and paste and printing function of lyrics web pages are disabled for a Japanese viweer. To fulfill this requirement you have to add the following css rule:

 
/* no print */
@media print {
    body { display: none !important; }
}
/* no selection */
body {
        -moz-user-select: none;
        -khtml-user-select: none;
        -ms-user-select: none;
        -webkit-user-select: none;
        user-select: none;
}
