    Hey etwaldman,

    Firstly I’d like to ask if you’re sure you want to autoplay audio on a site? This is not normally seen as a great idea from a user’s perspective. And removing in means to stop it playing will probably further affect the experience.

    Either way what you’re asking should be achievable with some fairly straight forward CSS. Do you have a link I could take a look at?

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Hi Todd,

    Hmm about autoplay…I have heard that before but I’m going to restrict myself to 15 sec mp3 that runs during a FAST slideshow.
    I capped FAST because I now need to know how I can have Next Gen Gallery just play thru the auto slideshow ONCE….I better ask them.

    But how DO I minimize the mp3 slider?

    Here’s the link where I use your Widgets on Pages
    http://www.narayandance.com/nd1/
    (and here I’m using another, HTML pasted up slideshow by Visualslideshow.com)…which I have a different problem with…can’t remove the darn white space above the show…w/o stopping the fade…weird!)

    Thanks! Eric

    Hey again,

    If you add the following CSS to the end of your theme’s style.css it should remove the player for you.
    .widgets_on_page {display : none;}

    Note again though that I don’t really approve of this… it’s bad for user experience and accessibility and is likely to drive down repeat visitors.

    Hi Todd,

    Thanks for responding…and I hear you. I think I will only do this on the About page, where repeat visitors will not come again.
    I pasted in the code where you said and it removed the player…it also removed the sound!!…so it didn’t work (and I deleted it from style css)
    Urf!

    Any other ideas?…is there a way to minimize the player?…maybe it needs some sort of presence to actually play?

    Ah OK… you could try the following instead;

    .widgets_on_page {visibility : hidden;}

    So how did you get on etwaldman?

    Hi Todd,

    That worked fine thanks!….take a look at
    http://www.narayandance.com/
    (This will actually be my About…once I work up another Home)
    I still would like to do a 10-12 sec slideshow/mp3 combo for my Home…but how about a Skip Intro button…very obvious…for those that don’t enjoy (repeatedly!) the intro?

    BTW…Question: I see when I dragged (in my case) the Simple Music widget over to Widgets on Pages 1 it disappeared from the left side…if I want a second, different, incident of Simple Music on another page do I need to install Simple Music again?….will WP even let me??
    thx!! Eric

    A skip button would certainly be a good thing.

    The issue with you only being able to add one is down to the way the widget has been implemented. I suggest posting a help thread against that plugin asking if it can be upgraded (shouldn’t be too tricky).
