Hi DirtyJoe

Here is a link to another thread in this forum which deals with this topic:
http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

Here is a summary:
1) Upload your audio file by clicking on the Site Manager tab and then clicking "manage files"
2) Check out this article which explains how to use HTML to make your music play automatically when someone opens your site:
http://www.2createawebsite.com/enhanc...

To add custom HTML, drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page and type the code in the editor.

I am glad you are confident, because this is a little tricky to do. But you seem more than up to the challenge!

I presume you have embeded the code into one of your pages if so you have to embed the code into all the pages you want to play music.
if you managed to get music to play on your website this way can you please tell me how you did it.

Hi monalisa,

I'm not sure what you mean when you say it only plays when you click on that particular site. Are you wanting the music to play automatically?

Hi lee

The URL of your music file is the URL of your site followed by /resources/yourfilname.wav (or whatever the exact file name of the audio file is that you uploaded)

Example:
http://mymusic.com/resources/sound file.wav

I hope this answers your question and allows you to edit the HTML. If not, please let me know.

Hello Beth,

You can put music on your site. You can do it for sure!

You have mentioned that you have placed your music files into your file manager. That's the first step. Well done.

The next steps are to do with telling your web-site what track or music file you wish to play and what page you want to play it on.

I suggest that you start with a one track player. If you get this working then I am confident that you can put a multi-track player on your site.

If you go into you site builder and select a page that you want to play some of your music. Now go to the sidebar and you will see "Widgets". Double click on widgets and this will then expand to give you further selections.

Click and drag Google Gadgets onto your page.


On your page a new dialogue will open:


In the bottom Right hand corner you will see "Get gadget code> Google Gadgets"

Click the words: Google Gadgets. This opens a catalogue of all the Google gadgets that you can place into your web pages.

If you go down to the second row and the second item from the left hand side you will see "MP3 Player". Now click the MP3 Palyer and you will be taken to the specific google gadget page for this player.


Click the ASdd to your webpage button. A new dialogue opens. Hre you can select the way the little player looks plus and most importantly what music file will be played. Under gadget setting I want you to type the address of your music file:

/resources/{mymusic.mp3}

resources is the File manager in everyone's Synthasite website. Unless you have created a sub-folder then leave it simply as resources. {mymusic.mp3} is an example of your music. You must type in the specific mucis file name of the track you wish to play OK? ".mp3" is the file type of the music track. This player can only play mps files.

The next action is to get the code so that you can paste it into the Gadget placeholder. Click the "Get the Code" button. In the bottom window you will see that some HTML code has been genrated. Please Copy this code by highlightinf the code, Control+ C. Return to your still open Synthasite builder page and Paste this code into the Google Gadgets box.


Click OK.

You will now be back to your Page builder


Please "save" your page and click" Update My site". Now go to your web site and check it out.

Beth remember that everyone has been through similar frustrations and we succeed at the end. Ready for the next challenge which generally is a little easier :). Take your time. Goodluck

Goodluck Beth you have an excellent tutorial to follow - take it easy and slowly and it will fall into place.

Just a comment on this whole thread - i, like many others find music that plays without your control very annoying - i think the best thing to do is add a player and give viewers the option of playing it if they want.

I hate music that plays automatically and if i can not turn it off (fast) its a enough to make me leave the site,

Something to think about.

OK Beth,

Deep breath!

You can do one of two things:

either go to the very top of this thread and click "Topics".
Then you will notice the thread very close to the top of the list

or you can click the link I posted a few lines up. That will take you directly to the new thread.

See you there.

Hi oscar

This thread is 2 years old and things have changed in our Sitebuilder since this thread started.

It is now possible to add a Yola MP3 widget to your site, which gives you the option to auto-play the file. Please see Adding music to your site with Yola's MP3 Player.

When you load the MP3 file into the widget, click the "Auto Play" box underneath the file name field. This will make your mp3 play automatically.

Hope it works for you! Let us know if you need help.

Thank you
Nazlie
