I am trying to use the Google audio widget but it doesn't play. My domain is laspiritaviols.org and the file path within yola is resources/Clips/Vecchi.mp3 so what path should I be using? I tried both http://laspiritaviols.yolasite.com/re... /Vecchi.mp3..... and http://laspiritaviols.org/..... I also tried adding www just in case but that didn't help either. The square red mp3 widget works but I don't like the looks of it.

Hi Lynn,

The correct URL for you mp3 would be this

This song in this example is not reachable -- have you added it to your file manager? -- If you have you could try and update (re publish) the site, see if that helps.

Also file names are case sensitive as are file manager folders.

Hope this helps - Lee - http://hexham.info

Thanks Lee - I guess I was confused because one of the widgets worked in the preview mode and the other didn't. Once I published the site it was okay.

Your welcome Lynn,
URL's work like this in the site builder:

If you use the http:// laspiritaviols.org/ it will NOT show in the preview window.

If you use just resources/Clips/Vecchi.mp3 it should show in the preview.

The file is not actually live until you publish the site, so it can not be reached at its full address http:// ...etc. but the super clever editor can display its own preview of it unless its told to look for it from its full address.

I'm not sure if that makes sense :)

Glad its fixed - Lee - http://hexham.info
