I need a tutorial to put a music file in my site that plays automatically when site is opened. I do not want any buttons or widgets showing.
I looked in the tutorials but the search brings up answers from 2008/9 there must be a more modern one.

Hi Woolyback,

The Yola MP3 widget does allow for music to autoplay, though it is something we advise against as it can often cause your site visitors to abandon your page immediately upon loading it.

If you still want your music to start automatically, you can do the following:

Click on "Edit" link on the MP3 widget you have added to your site.
In the dialog box that opens up, check off the option to "Auto Play".
Click on the "Save" button and update your site.

The MP3 file will still be visible and I'm afraid I am not aware of a method to hide it. Perhaps another member of our community can make an alternate suggestion if that does not appeal to you.

Thanks Laura that works fine. Just wanted to play "happy Birthday" to my Daughter when she opens her site.
