Oh, never mind. I just need to make sure that the “replace” tag is not checked and then it leaves the original link in the context and I can use the other options to place the link at the top or bottom.
thank you – was wondering why the audio player wasn’t giving me the option to show a download link – previously I had been using include_audio_player() function, which has an option for the player to generate a link as well…
I can’t figure out how to do this. When I uncheck the “replace” tag, there’s no player at all.
If you uncheck the “replace” tag you do have to check one of the other options to automatically place the player at the top or bottom of the post. Otherwise you have to use some shortcode in your actual post content to get a player to show up. Let me know if that doesn’t help and I can help debug some more. If you can do a screenshot or list your current settings on the page with the replace checkbox, that’d be great.
What I have checked off:
-Replace [audio] syntax
Alternate content for feeds: download link
[I thought checking this would make one automatically, but no?]
Every other setting is unchecked. I use the code [audio:http://…] in the posts for the player.
I don’t want to move the player to the top of the post. “Move enclosures to the beginning of posts” is the only option I have in here.
Thank you for the quick help!!
Hmm, we have the same settings on our site. But instead of using [audio:http://…] in the posts we just set ours up as a normal link Download and WordPress finds it as an MP3 enclosure automatically and the Audio Player plugin reads that and adds a player at the bottom for us.
Try that but here’s the background…
From the docs it says “Just link to an audio file in one of your posts and WordPress will automatically add the necessary enclosure tag to your RSS2 feed to make it useable as a podcast.” and that works well for us. That’s at http://codex.wordpress.org/Podcasting if you want to read more on WordPress creating enclosures for you.
So since WordPress creates the enclosures and Audio Player finds them (it says manually in that option but it does it with any enclosure) you should just be able to link to an MP3 and have Audio Player automatically add a player at the end.
You can see a sample of what it does for our site @ http://northstarfamily.org/the-resurrection/ if curious.
If you don’t want the download link you can transform that into the player by checking the “Replace all links to mp3 files” box in Audio Player options.
I’m still having trouble getting the “Download” feature to work on the Audio Player even after following all the directions above. Can you help?
Just noticed this ~ what trouble? Is it not showing one or the other or both? Hopefully you got it by now, but if not and you want to give it another, let me know with some more details!
I am having difficulty with this too. It just will not add the audio player to the link with any combination of checks in the settings. Any help would be appreciated.
We would like for our listeners to be able to download the mp3 files. We could get around this by adding a second link to the post but this is why I choose this plugin because it is supposed to add the audio player after the link. I have seen examples and they are exactly what we wanted.
Am I doing something wrong?
to those confused, like I was. I ended up just embedding the player, then I added the audio file directly afterwards as a link, and changed the link name to say download. so that way i have the player then a link that says download. have to uncheck the convert all links box of course.
would be nice if the plugin did it easier like the wpaudio plugin, but we can only hope and pray, until then this is how i do it.
