    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.
    https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=11280

    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?

    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!

    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]

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

    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?

    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

    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?

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

    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.
