Hi Fizanali,

Have you uploaded the mp3 or music file you would like to play on your page onto your SynthaSite by using the File Manager button at the top of your page?

* In the Widgetbox dialogue box, once you have selected the Google Audio widget, click on 'Settings'

*Change the url to something like: http://mysite.synthasite.com/resource...

where 'mysite' is the name of your published site and filename.mp3 is the name of the music file you've uploaded and would like to hear.

* Republish your site for the changes to occur live on the 'net

But if i add a mp3 widget separately on my blog page next to my post then when i would add another post with another mp3 player i would have to delete the older mp3 widget with the new one on the page. So if someone searches for my older post he would find the post but not the associated mp3 player!

So is there anyway i could embed the player directly into the post so that it keeps with the post??

Hey,
Here's a way to do what you want:

1. Upload mp3 file into the File Manager
2. Document the location of the mp3, it will be
http://www.muzicera.com/resources/fil... (this is important!)
3. Create a new blog post
4. 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 such as Listen to Alicia Keys - No One.
5. Highlight only the text you want to be the link, such as the text above, click on the create link icon (looks like a chain link).
6. Click the box URL external
7. Copy and past, or type in, the exact location of the mp3 file in #2.
8. Click ok
9. Update your site

I did this on my site for you to see how it should behave: http://e-learnabout.com/blog.php.

Try this and let me know if it works for you.

Good luck!

Hello Emmy,
What you describe does indeed work. However, what I would like to know, and Fizanali above as well I believe, is how we can have a little mp3 player play the mp3 file right inside the blog post instead of opening an external link in a new window. Any suggestions on how to do THAT? Thanks for you help on this.

Hi Greg,
I understand what you're looking to do. I played around with this quite a bit and the above suggestion was all I could come up with to to accomplish the task of getting mp3 files into individual blog posts.

I'm thinking that what you want to do isn't possible as dropping a widget into a blog post isn't possible; someone correct me if I'm wrong!

There are some pretty innovative people here on Get Satisfaction, hopefully someone else can give you a way to make this happen. Sorry, wish I could do more.

Hey, I haven't tried this particular thing, but I think you should be able to add the player if you paste the html code inside your blog post using the html view when composing. Of course, you need to make sure all files are uploaded and that you copy the correct file locations... which flash player are you guys trying to use?
