Installation

  1. unzip package
  2. Upload directory thefreemusician to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Go to http://littleguybigheart.net/tfmplugin/instructions for further instructions
    (you’ll almost certainly need to – wordpress AJAX enabling is not always simple depending on your theme)

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://littleguybigheart.net/tfmplugin/instructions

I get this error on activation

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/heatherp/public_html/wp/test013/wp-content/plugins/thefreemusician/ob_settings_v1_3.php on line 14

I don’t know why this happens but my next priority is to replace this piec of code anyway – so it’ll be fixed soon…
