Playing MP3 in wordpress post? (7 posts)

    I have tried over and over again now with the new WordPress to post mp3s with embed src, and it won't work. It just erases my code completely.

    I really can't stand the new wordpress for this, I can never write code myself without it adding an x, or just not work. Does anyone know how i can turn off the programming-unfriendly interface and have it like the old wordpress.

    or can someone tell me how to use the embed src code in the new wordpress without it just replacing it with <big code> and then show nothing?

    Thanks!!

    Turn off the rich text editor (Users > Your Profile, Personal Options) and try adding your embed code again.

    Also:
    admin -> Options -> Writing
    uncheck box for:
    "WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically"

    You may also benefit from this plugin:

    If this doesn't work - try explaining in more detail what you're trying to achieve and exactly what happens when it "didn't work".

    Ok I want to embed a flash object that happens to be a player from Gabcast.

    When I put the Embed HTML into the HTML editor the player still doesn't show up in the post. I had no problems when I used to use "Blogger"

    I don't have any problems embedding in WordPress either when I do as suggested above. Works every time.
    Could you be having this guy's problem?

    Can you give us a link to a post you have made which should show a player in it but does not? Might help.
