    listen,I wrote here so I could get some help with my blog...not so some snoty know it all like you could tell me im not putting enough effort into what im doing.if your not going to help me then dont waste my time writing your stupid insults,let someone else help me.

  5. i was just showing your snotty self that a simple no effort search on the forum would get you the answer. and a simple no effort search on the FAQ would also get you the answer.

    but it seems that even those are far more than you're willing to do for yourself, so you rather someone else do it for you, or, even better, type out here all the tiresome stuff because a click on a link or a type on a search form is way too much of an effort for you.

    how's that as an insult?

    Hi there,
    Below is a link to a Beginner's Guide that I gave you when you first came.

    I'm in agreement with salamandrine. I believe that you ought to start using the FAQs and forum search box prior to posting to the forum so will you start doing that now please?

  7. why bother having a forum if you guys are so unhelpful? i dont understand any of that mumbo jubo... :(

  8. matthewthief, are you having the same problem or something else? What don't you understand? If it is related, create a thread and we can point you in the right direction!

  9. me and my friend (not Saint of Swords)have been trying to learn how to put music up.. im just no good at it.. i have read that page over about 4 times..

  10. You have read the FAQ on putting music on your blog? It is an informative article that tells you how to do it!

    If you know the URL of an mp3, you would put something like the following in your blog post where you want the player to appear!

    [audio http://wordpress.com/files/2007/01/mattmullenweg-interview.mp3]

    Trent

  11. Folks, please don't argue and fight in these forums as it is a place to get help, not ridiculed for having problems.

    Trent

  12. yeah thats the one.. what im looking for is when you click the page music starts playing or something like that.. now lets see..

    (1. Upload an mp3 file somewhere on the internet and link to it like this [audio ] with the address inside.Like this: [audio http://wordpress.com/files/2007/01/mattmullenweg-interview.mp3%5D)

    OK my friend tried this one but it wouldnt play..

    (2. Buy the Space Upgrade. This allows you to upload mp3, ogg, wav, m4a, mov, wmv, avi, and mpg files and play them too. Check your Upgrades page inside the blog.)

    This sounds simple but only if you want to buy the upgrade.. so this isnt a option for me right now.

    (3. Link directly to a file elsewhere and rely on your reader’s machines to play it.)

    If you dont mind me asking this.. how do you link a song to your page? and soes it play when you go to the site or do you have to press the play button?

    (4. Use the Sonific widget.)

    we tryed this but they dont have any of the game music we were looking for..

    -EDIT-
    how do you find a URL to a song?

  13. 1) What was the exact code you were trying to enter. Paste it in here with the 'backticks' around it (the key on your keyboard to the left of the number 1).

    2) Fair enough

    3) You would put in the code like:

    <a href="http://wordpress.com/files/2007/01/mattmullenweg-interview.mp3">My mp3!</a>

    4) The sonic widget isn't for you, no problem!

    I would still go with #1 and then have the user push the play button when they want to play the file. It has to be an mp3 file and a specific URL ending with .mp3

    Trent

  14. ridiculed trent? can you point where did that happened, please??

    what i read was someone said he searched the forum and didn't find a thing, when we know that is not true - specially on this particular issue.

    so, if you can tell me who is ridiculing what, please?

    and yourself

    some effort, please.

    I realize that they started it, but just trying to keep it clean is all.

  16. this is the song i was looking at

    'http://www.zelda-infinite.com/files/music/mm/dekupalace.mid'

  17. trent said

    It has to be an mp3 file and a specific URL ending with .mp3

  18. oh... i knew it had to have something with a "m" in it... well i dont know how i would get a mp3 version of it...

  19. Yeah I searched this and was wondering how to do this as well. Is there a way I could use Html or xhtml? I'm used to that. Also, with the music, do i put the script inside a blog entry?
    Thanks,
    han.

  20. hi there trent. is there a way we could put the link using number 3 (putting the url code of the mp3file) and it would automatically play it as soon as the webpage opens, wihtout clicking any link?

  21. The audio player never "auto plays" and there is not an option to do this right now that I know of. I think the "sonic widget" might be able to, but you cannot control which URL you want to play. As well, anyone can help you here, so addressing one person really isn't necessary!

    Trent

  22. The sonific songspot widget is the only thing we have that will autoplay when the blog opens. If you just put the URL of the MP3 file, what you'll do is make it downloadable, not playable.
