Can you add a youtube video or an audio mp3 track to a blog page created with synthasite cause i really need this feature. You can do this on other blogging platforms like blogger and wordpress

Fizanali,

Yes this is certainly possible!

1) Click on the "videos" folder.
2) Drag and drop the Youtube icon to the desired location on your blog page.
3) Click on the "Properties" tab in the sidebar on the right.
4) You will see a link that allows you to browse Youtube. Click on this.
5) Find the video you want to link to and copy the URL you want to link to.
6) Paste the full URL over the default URL in the Properties sidebar in SynthaSite.
7) Click "Apply" (at the bottom of the sidebar)

The video will then be embedded on your page.

You can 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 SynthaSite and click "ok"

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

Hi, I understand that a video link can be added on the blog page, however if I would like to add a video to a particular posting within the blog page, then I am not able to do that. Am I right?

Hi agelocasia,

The instructions Kershnee gave above are actually to embed a video not just add a link. Please let us know if you are having trouble with these instructions.
