Hi Fizanali,

I'm not sure about a Flash player - do you have a particular one in mind? It may work using the steps below (I added a simple player to a blog post).

1. Upload your music using the File Manager
2. Create a blog post
3. In the blog post, click on the HTML button in the text toolbar
4. Paste the code <!-- <embed src="resources/music.mp3"
width="140" height="40" autostart="false" loop="FALSE">
</embed> -->

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)

5. Preview the post to check it out

I hope that works for you!

Didn't work for my website. Couldn't see the .mp3. Though Marije didn't say so, you probably have to put the name you want people to click between the > and <.

Hello Andrew

Here's another way you can add music files to your site:

1. Upload your music files into your File Manager.
2. Drag over an HTML Widget and type in the following code:
<a href=" text goes here</a>
Replace the following:
* "" with your site URL
* "musicfile.mp3" with the name of your music file
You will need to add a new a href code for each of your music files.
3. Drag over another HTML Widget, and add this code:
<script type="text/javascript" src=";...;
4. Click on "OK".
5. Save and republish your site.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.
