Check it out, guys! We’ve polished up our widget, keeping you looking as snazzy as ever! We’ve added our custom wave-form to our Player Standard, and included the like button in our Player Mini.
With that announcement, we’d like to give you a little refresher on how to embed the widget into your personal sites and blogs.
Adding a widget is a great way to share your content with all your users. By adding one on your personal site, you keep users on your homepage and give them an opportunity to take look at what else you have to offer. So, let’s start!
First, find the share icon, located in a couple of places throughout the site, like the player located at the bottom of the page, and towards the top of your collection’s page. Click on that to get the code you need.
Also, clicking on embed on the track’s page will get you to the right place.
Then choose which widget you’d prefer to use, the Player Mini, or the Player Standard. Not sure which to pick? Let’s take a look at what they can do.
Both widgets allow you to share and like tracks, as well as follow the user who created it. You can make slight adjustments to the size, and choose whether or not you want the track to start playing automatically when the page opens.
Also, choose which track you want the widget to play. By clicking on the drop-down menu where it says Current track, you can choose to play only the track featured in the preview, have the widget automatically update with every new track you broadcast (even when you’re on live), or automatically update with the latest track of the entire account.
The Player Standard is bigger, and offers a few more features. Listeners can feast their eyes on the super-cool wave form, and by clicking on the small set of bars at the bottom, will be able to access past tracks of your collection or account.
Ok, now comes the easiest part of all – actually embedding the widget! Copy and paste the code provided into your website. If you have a WordPress blog, then click on “Share on WordPress” and copy and paste the new code provided.
And that’s it! Told you it was easy!
