    I’ve tested audio with a remote url http://www.radio.rai.it/podcast/A42610409.mp3
    and it doesn’t seem to work
    http://www.pivari.com/fotografie/polaroid-edwin-land-23682/

    Is the problem in the mp3 or in the theme?

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

    None of the two: the problem is you didn’t use the shortcode correctly. Correct shortcode:
    [audio http://www.radio.rai.it/podcast/A42610409.mp3]

    I don’t use the short code. You can view the shot code that the theme made.
    Is this the theme bug?

    Well, you have to use the shortcode. The job of the audio post format isn’t to turn a URL into a player, it’s job is merely to change the appearance of a post so as to mark that the post is or contains audio.

    That said, what you found is a bug: the post shouldn’t display what it’s displaying if you just paste the mp3 URL.

    I’ve interted the code you told me and it work.
    With foto, video, … you can simply insert the url
    In every case I think it’s not correct the description:

    “Audio embed code or URL”

    “Audio embed code or URL”: where exactly did you see this?

    What I can say is
    a) An mp3 URL will automatically be turned into a player if the mp3 has been uploaded to your blog; if it’s hosted elsewhere you need the shortcode.
    b) What you saw in the post is wrong anyway: pasting the URL should produce nothing, or the actual URL, or a link, or a player – anything other than code!

    In every case I think it’s not so complex to correct the problem.
    When I introduced the url the code generated is near to the right code.

    Yes, the WP theme team monitor the Themes forum: they will see this and fix it.

    Hi, we’re tracking an issue related to audio shortcodes in core WordPress — see http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/24235

    Once we know more, and a fix is ready, we’ll bring it to WordPress.com.
