Adding MP3s to a Post (3 posts)

    I'm sure this has been talked about in the forums, but I did a search and couldn't come up with anything clear.

    At any rate, I'm helping a non-html savvy friend with his blog. I'd like to know what's the easiest way to add MP3s to a post. I like the way you can easily add an image via the tool bar in the Write Post section of the Dashboard. But is there anyway to do something similar for an Mp3? I tried to upload an Mp3 from the dashboard, but received an error because the file was too big. And in Options MIsc sub-panel for WP 2.0 I don't see how I can change the size of allowable uploads.

    Can anybody help?

    You are limited by your server setup with regards to your maximum upload size. You'll have to use FTP for anything bigger.

    After that, just link to the mp3 file with something like:

    <a href="http://example.com/audio/your-file.mp3">Listen now</a>

    WordPress will check the link, determine that it is an audio file, and anyone subscribing to your feed with something like iTunes will see it as an "enclosure" and just like that you'll be podcasting.

    Ok, that worked great! My friend will just have to learn to type some html!
