Hi Lea,

If you would like to add a simple music player to play an uploaded song on your blog post, follow these steps:

1. Upload your music by clicking on the "File Manager" button.
2. Create the blog post you would like to use.
3. In the blog post, click on the "HTML" button in the text toolbar.
4. Paste the following code:

<embed src="resources/music.mp3" width="140" height="40" autostart="false" loop="FALSE"></embed>

5. Replace music.mp3 with name of your uploaded file (If you've put the file in a folder, remember to include the folder name: resources/folder/music.mp3).
6. Preview the post or republish your site.

Another way to add music to your post is to create a link to the music file:

1. In the body of the blog post type your post and create some text that you want to bet the linking text to the mp3.
2. Highlight the text you want to be the link, click on the create link icon (looks like a chain link).
3. Choose the 4th option and click on the three dots (...) to locate the file in your File Manager.
4. Click on "OK"

Don't forget to click on the green "Publish to the web" button in order to apply these changes to your live site.
