Some code is borrowed from Emo by Scott Powers and Songbook by Chiran. Thank you to these authors for their work, without which Lyrical would not have been possible.

Lyrical 1.5 has been released. I squashed a bug that had been reported for several months, where song data was not being saved. The issue was caused by other plugins interfering with Lyrical due to a bug in the code.
Those are some exciting changes to an already magnificent plugin. Thank yer for yer continued work on this!
Regarding the popup menu: I have about 90 songs/poems and the likes in me lyrical. In version 2.0, this is too many songs for the popup menu, so the upper half of my song list won't show on my screen. The problem is that I can't find any way to scroll up and down the menu, and with the browse buttons gone too... So I have reverted back to 1.6 for the time being.
Is there any way to show all songs in very long song lists?
I had no idea anyone was storing that many songs! The Lyrical 2.0 design was prompted by requests from users who had 20-30 songs, and wanted a faster way to open songs without using the scroll buttons.
I don't know of any way to scroll popup menus, but I was planning to add folders which would let you access a larger number of songs than would fit in one menu.
So the short answer is you'll have to use 1.6 for now, but a future release of Lyrical will let you access all 90 songs.
I had 2.1 and it worked just fine. I obtained the plugin compendium to "manage" plugins and it showed there was an update to 2.2 and so I updated. When I logged into the game and loaded Lyrical, it loaded up just fine and the last song I had "sang" was showing. However, when I try to access other songs I get this message....
...Rings Online\Plugins\Astleigh\Lyrica l\MainWindow.lua:317 : attempt to concatenate field 'path' (a nil value)
Did I erase the songs/stories I had in lyrical or is the script just not finding the info? Can anyone tell me how I can fix this, please? I am lost without my Lyrical!!
Thanks so much!

It sounds like you found a new bug. Would you mind sending me a copy of your lyrical.plugindata file? I'll see if I can figure out what went wrong.
In the mean time, you could try backing up your existing lyrical.plugindata, deleting the old one from the plugindata folder, and restarting lyrical. You'll have to recreate all the songs, but at least it shouldn't be bugged any more.
