Heya.

Is there any chance I could get someone to change the height of the element that carries playlists on Group Pages from 80px to 200px?

The reason for this is simple: since the height of the area given to the playlists on group pages is so small, any group page WITH a playlist runs into problems; if the playlist code used is set to "autostart," one cannot click the "stop" button on the playlist to turn off the music (although at its current size, the playlists' volume meter is available and therefore it can still be muted), and if the playlist is set to "noautostart," ...well, one cannot start the music that the playlist has to offer. Also, one cannot skip, reverse, fast-forward, or pick & choose songs to play.

It's just a bummer. Playlists can help to really personalize a group page, but they can become a problem when you can't manipulate them. >_<''

We tried to change the size of the playlist itself, but it seems that the smallest we can make it is 215px width by 200px height.

To be precise...the element I'm talking about can be found by going to any group page with a playlist (the specific page I used was here), then by pressing F12, followed by Ctrl+F and entering
//*[@id="library_article_left"]/div[2] in the find box that appears at the bottom of the screen.

These are instructions to find the element on Chrome...and I have no idea whether or not it'll be the same steps on other browsers.

If something can be done, that's great! I'd really appreciate it and I bet others would, too. If nothing can be done about it, well, then I guess we'll just have to live with it. =/

Also, I don't own any groups, so I'm not sure if it's something that the owner of a group can change, but I'm just kind of assuming it's not. =P
