How do I add an audio/music player to my site?

To add an audio player to your website, you will firstly need to upload your music file to the "Files" area. Your file should be no larger than 2MB.

You can upload your file by following the steps below:

  1. Click on "Content" on the top menu.
  2. Click on "Files" on the left-hand menu.
  3. Click on the "Add New File" button and select the file you wish to use with your Audio Widget.
Once you have uploaded your music or audio file you will need to set up your audio player widget. To do this, follow the steps below:
  1. Log in to your Create account.
  2. Click on "Content” on the top menu.
  3. Click on “Widgets” on the left-hand menu.
  4. Select “Add New Widgets” and then click the “Add Widget” button next to the Audio Player widget.
  5. Enter the required information and choose the sound file you want to play from the drop down list, or enter a direct link (if you are hosting it elsewhere) in the "Sound File URL:" field.
  6. Click “Save Changes".

When you are happy with the set up of your widget, you'll need to add it to the page of your website where you want it to appear, to do this follow the steps below:

  1. Log into your Create account

  2. Click Content on the top menu

  3. Click Edit This Page (the pencil icon) next to the page you would like to edit

  4. Click the Add Block button in the bottom left-hand corner

  5. From the drop-down menu, select Custom

6. You can then drag and drop the Custom Element content block onto the desired place on the page.

Once the Custom Element block has been added to the page, you can click the + icon and use the drop-down menu to select what content you would like to add to the page.

 

 

You’ll see you can select content including Widgets, HTML Fragments and Custom Forms, as well as combinations of other blocks such as Buttons, Headers, Images, Videos, Maps and Text.

A placeholder icon will be added to the page and if you click the Settings icon, you can specify exactly which widget or HTML fragment for example, that you would like to use. Click Done and then save your changes.

If you have any further questions at all, don't hesitate to contact your Account Manager who will be happy to help.
