    I understand HOW to do the audio shortcode, I just don’t understand where to get the URL that you insert into the shortcode. Like, as a random example, let’s say I want to use to shortcode to get a player for the song I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, where would I go to find the mp3 file thingy? Help? Thanks :)

    The blog I need help with is iambekah.wordpress.com.

    Well, the shortcode is designed for files that you own the rights to, not just any old song. You would have to have uploaded the file to a hosting service like fileden or boxnet or something, and then get the URL of the exact MP3 and use that. I used to have mine at Odeo, but they have neglected that site ever since they invented Twitter, and most of them don’t work anymore.

    Alternately, you can get the space upgrade and upload the MP3 right here on WordPress, just the way you do images.
