I love the new widget for the mp3 player, but need the music to auto start. At present I am using my own code for a player, but prefer the Yola one. Is there any way I can get the music to start when the page opens using the yola widget? Thanks for an awesome service!

Hey Sal,

This is absolutely possible :)
1.In the site builder click on the MP3 Player widget that is in your page.
2.Click the properties tab on the right hand side of your screen.
3.There should be a drop down box where you can change the option from 'off' to 'on'.

Hope this helps.

Oh my thats wonderful thank you! I dont suppost there's a way to make the players narrower, as it goes right across the screen ( full width )? I managed to adjust the html code to do this, but it's very laborious...I am not missing a simple way am I?
Thank you so much for geting back to me!

I don't think there is a way to edit the looks of it. I just think you can put a file into it and thats it. Also, how do you edit the HTML code?

Hey Sal,
You don't need to post a new question :)

Just drag a column divider into your site where you want the MP3 player,
And drop your MP3 player into the left side of the column divider :)

And then drag the column to the size you want :)

Hope this helps.

The column idea is super thank you! I managed to tweek the html code by inserting the player, then copying and pasting it into a text part of my page, then when you click the html code button on that text part of the page, the code is revealed and can be tweaked.
You will see I made the player smaller on my homepage at www.BritSAL.net/
It's not ideal, because it makes it more difficult to change the music when you want to..the column idea is much better, and will be my next project. I have so many pages..it will take weeks...lol.
Thanks everyone for the input.
I do love Yola. It's the best!
