Can I Stop the Sidebar from reloading for an MP3 Player? (5 posts)

    Fairly new to WP, and a novice at coding. I just added an MP3 player to the sidebar and was wondering if there is any way to stop the sidebar from reloading when you go to different categories, pages, or the archives. Or, would there just be a way to stop the mp3 player from reloading...?

    Thanks!

    One alternative technique for this is to put your mp3 player in a pop-up. You'd have a button that says "Play in pop-up" to launch it. Then when the person surfs around -- even to another website -- the pop-up can continue playing in the background.

    I use that option with PodPress.

    Sorry I didn't know how to do just what you asked for exactly.

    You can put the MP3 player in an iframe, thus when you browse stuff on your page, it only changes the other windows and thus, the embedded "iframe" window remains untouched and constant.

    I think what you need is javascript, but unfortunately I don't know it well to help you. Try to use google, I'm sure there will be something for it

    Vietknight, do you or anyone else know WHere or What part of the site I should build my iframe into?

    Has anyone else had any progress on this issue? I'd like to have music play without reloading while readers browse my wordpress.

    Thanks for any help.
