How to add music to blog, read all other threads/topics/osts

    Like the title says, I've read all the available topics about adding music to my blog. None of the suggestions work and I don't know why.

    My theme: NeoSapian

    My Blog: http://fortunefavorsthebold.wordpress.com

    Music URL: http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/9/24/1456758/Crystal%20Method%20-%20Requiem%20For%20a%20Dream.mp3

    I've tried adding the above url into my side bar using the Text1 widget in the following format:

    [audio http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/9/24/1456758/Crystal%20Method%20-%20Requiem%20For%20a%20Dream.mp3%5D

    It hasn't worked.

    Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

    I discovered it works within posts but I want it to play automatically on my blog's main page and I want it to be available to play via the sidebar if possible. Again thanks in advance.

  3. The sonific songspot widget will autoplay and, as a widget, it must be in your sidebar. Hope this helps.

    Was hoping to add my own song seeing as how songspot won't let people upload music but thanks anyways I appreciate it :)

  5. Do note that autoplay usually alienates quite a lot of people. My browser = my music.

  6. I dont get it

  7. What theapparatus was trying to say was that a lot of people do not like to hear music...that they themselves have not chosen while they read the blog. That it is anoying etc. I used sonific...and hated it because every time I clicked a link it started the first song back over again...over and over. I took it off. I also thought sonific sucked at the songs they did have. If I wanted a tribute bands version of a song I could find it, but not the actual artist that I was looking for. So far I have just had disapointment with the song/music aspect of wordpress. my 2 cents.

  8. @ella, the Sonific widget doesn't have to be in the sidebar. WordPress uses the term "widget" in a rather specialized sense, to refer to a slice of sidebar.
    But it you create a widget at Sonific, you can put it in a post here at WordPress.com.
    One of the options on the Sonific widget will be Autoplay. I always have, and always will, use the default: No autoplay.

  9. As the poster said, I also want "my own" music played in the website. Sonific obviously doesn't have my mp3s. This is not a debate about auto-playing or not (although it would be could not to autoplay) but an issue of..

    Can I have my own mp3 uploaded somewhere and have it played in the sidebar?

    Thanks :-)

  10. I don't think the audio player works in the sidebar, but you could try it out I guess to find out for sure:

    [audio=http://yoururl.com/yoursong.mp3]

  11. Nope, doesn't work in the sidebar. Wish it did.
