Awesome! Glad it is working for you!

I did another update, here are the changes:

Quote from: vcuncg on May 05, 2020, 08:47:58 PMThis plugin is great and simple to set up and use.  Thanks for all the hard work!  I did have one question to see if it is possible to add.  Can the service auto-restart after a reboot?  Maybe I can use a script to fire it when my show starts if it is not running already?  I typically leave my pi up and running all season, but occasionally I do reboot for one reason or another.  Would be nice to have it auto start since I would probably forget.

Thanks again for this plugin!

Updated the plugin so it can now auto-start after reboot!

It also allows certain background images to be picked (Halloween pumpkins for now, Happy Halloween!) and also fixed a bug when the plug is first started.

Please uninstall and reinstall for the update to work properly.

Thanks for the plugin! I love it. However it seems users can vote multiple times. They should only be able to vote once. is this something you can fix?
Thanks. donation on the way!

Thank you! And I can't thank you enough for the donation!

Yes I should have the duplicate votes fixed here by the end of the week. I'm working on some more customization on the web page along with some bug fixes, I should have that done in the next day or so - right after that my next focus will be preventing duplicate votes.

Did another update tonight - allowing us to further customize the voting page


  • Allow background / gradient colors to be picked
  • Allow header font colors to be picked (revamping voting buttons soon!)
  • Nativity background image option
  • Snowman background image options with and without gloves
  • Fixed the bug where the gradient wouldn't go to the bottom of the screen on some devices


I'll start working on only allowing one person to vote at a time.

You should be able to update the plugin though the plugin manager. When you to update, be sure to stop and then start the voting service again!

Ok another update is now live


  • Reworked the buttons so they are much easier to read and look nicer

Let me know what you all think of the buttons, or if you see any bugs let me know so I can get them fixed!

Noticing it mainly on portable devices, but some people are getting gateway timeout errors when trying to vote or the page would just keep trying to load.  We had no problems when we were testing from the PC, but every now and then on iPhone and android devices it would give the error.  I am running FPP 3.6.2 still if that matters.
I also like the idea of tracking votes.  My wife was asking me what song was the most requested.
We opened it up to the public last night with great success!
Thanks for the time and effort you put into this.

Glad it was successful! 


I did see a bunch of requests yesterday, but the server should have been able to handle it based off of the server cpu, disk, and memory usage. Thank you for reporting the gateway timeout errors! There is some adjustments I need to make to prevent that from happening.

I'll see what I can get done on the song metrics, if not this season than definitely next!

You're welcome, I'm happy you are enjoying it!!  ;D

Thanks for this plugin.  I am interested in adding some features and would be willing to share them, but would like to develop and then share.  I've already modified the scripts on my pi, but I was curious if you had a guy hub repo for the server side as well.  Idk if the site went down or if i did something last night because it went all sorts of funky lol.  I loaded some json with the wrong data lol.

Thanks for this terrific plugin!!!   It has been one of the most fun parts of this year's lights. This time of year my family tries to promote a charity.   It would be a great feature, if I could add some HTML to render a donate button or simply a link.  This year we are promoting https://water.cc/ - a charity that drills water wells for communities that do not have clean water.   Thanks for considering.

I did notice there was some additional errors being thrown on the server ;D I'm excited for the interest, but would rather keep the server code private for now. Curious what kind of features you are looking to add? I'd love to collaborate and make it happen!

I'm so glad it has been fun! I've been considering allowing this, there is some risk to allowing raw HTML be rendered on a site - but I think there are some safe ways to do this. Stay tuned!


Also did another update tonight - server side only
  • Fix 'Now Playing' song name not honoring the name preference (using audio vs sequence names)
  • Other internal bug fixes and added additional testing
