  • Hey there – Awesome plugin and great work! Thanks for putting it up for free on the repo =) Had a question… is it possible to start/stop a player from an external link. For example, if I use the shortcode in the content/entry area and play the player from there, could I add a play and/or stop link in the sidebar to control the player’s controls?

    This was in 1.7.x but i didn’t put it in 1.8 because it seemed quite a useless feature.

    I can maybe look at putting it back in if there’s any demand for it?

    Thanks for the reply! I’ve seen a lot of demand for this type of functionality, in general. Here’s why I’ve seen in on WP and CodeCanyon forums — a lot of people, myself included, really like the Ajaxify WordPress Site plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ajaxify-wordpress-site/) and would like to use an mp3 player that doesn’t stop whenever browsing between posts *without* the use of a pop-up player, since it’s typically blocked by the browsers’ default setting, whereby you get a notification that something needs your attention … and then you instinctively hit cancel right away, because you don’t want to be bothered with any sort of pop-up to begin with. If you think of rdio, beatport and soundcloud, that’s the type of functionality I’ve seen others wanting to replicate within WP. If you could bring it back to the latest version, I and I’m sure others would really appreciate that =)
