Hi Mayank

When you upload your files, it'll be uploaded directly to your file manager on your site. Then, you'll create a link to where your audio source is located when the widget asks you where to get the audio from. Does this help to clarify things?

Hi Mayank

Sure no problem.. I will try be best to explain!

You already have your audio file on your PC? All you need to do is upload to your file manager. What you need to do is go to your file manager on your site builder and click on upload.



Then select your audio file.

After you've done this, then follow the steps here from Ruth (a Yola employee)

You can add music by using the Widgetbox Gallery:

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, click on the Audio category or search for music.
3. Choose the player that you would like to use on your site.
4. Edit your settings to customise your widget.
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

You can also add music by using Widgetbox or Google Gadgets widgets:

1. Click on the "Widgets" folder on the far right of your screen.
2. Drag and drop a Widgetbox widget onto your page (Google Gadgets also has players).
3. Click on the link in the dialogue box that will take you to Widgetbox.
4. Browse for a player. Here is a direct link to one where the plays when your site opens: http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/myplayer.
5. Customize your widget (the site will take you through the steps depending on the player you select).
6. Copy the HTML code provided.
7. Paste the code into the dialogue box in Yola and click "OK".

Please ensure that you own the copyright to the music you will be playing.

On the Widgetbox, you will see a place to put your link to where you have uploaded your audio file.



Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hello Mayank Nehru,

An example for this case would be: mysite.(yolasite).com/resources/songtitle.mp3

resources is the default name of the file holder that is in your website. songtitle is the name of your music track .mp3 maybe .wav if the music file is in the .wav format.
