Monoblog

Description

Combines the awesome functionality of MediaElement.js HTML5 media player and Plupload to enable you or the authors of your site to upload mp3s of people reading the text of your blogs.

If you so choose, this plugin can also generate an audio podcast of your Monoblog content.

Check out OwnTheNarrative.com for more information and examples.

After activating, while still in the admin panel, go to Appearance->Widgets. Then click and drag the Monoblog widget to whatever sidebar/area you want. NOTE: The sidebar/widget area must be visible in your posts in order for this to work.

Uploading

  1. Record yourself reading your blog post and save it as an mp3. (Use Audacity or a similar program)
  2. Navigate to your blog post in your browser
  3. If you have at least author rights, you should see “Select Monoblog File”. Give that a click.
  4. Select your mp3 file.
  5. Click Upload
