FAQ

When I browse to another page, my music stops when it should keep playing

You haven’t enabled your AJAX in the setting panel (it’s disabled by default because it’s tricky!)
Read the instructions at http://musicletloose.org/instructions

How does it work? It’s like magic!

The player is based on the excellent open source http://www.schillmania.com/projects/soundmanager2/ library. Basically it just plays music through that but reloads the content and menu areas of the page via ajax when a link is clicked. Then it uses html5 push.state to ohange the url.

My page reloads to something really weird, what’s happening?!

If you have javascript content within a post/page then when it loads dynamically it might produce strange results -nothing damaging but can be odd. Luckily people rarely put javascript inside their posts…
