    We have just purchased a space upgrade to allow us to embed audio files into our webpages.

    Is there a technique to have the audio file play when the User first opens the page?

    Thanks.

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

    The WordPress player does not provide autoplay music. You can try an alternative player: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/12/05/alternative-audio-players/

    Please note: autoplay is a major irritant for some people (myself included). Many of us will click out never to return again if we experience someone else’s musical taste and have not been given an option to listen or not. I never return to such blogs.

    By the way, you need the space upgrade to upload audio files to your blog but you don’t need it to embed audio files to your blog: you can upload them to a free file hosting site that gives direct URLs.
