Hello Toby,

If you would like to add a single track to a webpage then you have a few options.

You can select a widget, for example Widgetbox or Google Gadgets from the Sidebar of your builder. When you select either of these a new dialogue will open and allow you to go into their product library. You can do a search for an mp3 widget. Select one that you like. Configure it for size, colour and sound file. You then need to copy the code that has been generated and paste it back into the place holder that was opened when you selected the widget brand. Then OK. Save your page, update and view. It should be there.

There are quite a few options on the configuration page of the widget such as repeat playing, automatic playing on entering the web-page etc. These need to considered carefully.

The last option is to simply drag the file to a place on your page. This will show the default icon and will work also.
