How to setup playlist section or add MP3 and audio files

Auto-Play your music when the homepage loads

  1. Go to wp-admin > pages and edit your homepage.
  2. Edit the audio player element. (Or add a new one if there is no audio player on your homepage), select the playlist and click auto-play. http://d.pr/i/V5VloS
  3. You'll probably want to hide the player to avoid it to shows up in your page by disabling its parent's column: http://d.pr/i/Zx2kEt

Starting the player from Slider Revolution.

We sometimes use a "Play" button in the big banner on the homepage. The play button needs to be linked to a playlist.

  1. To tell Slider Revolution which playlist you want to fire when you click on the play button, go to wp-admin > Slider Revolution and edit the slide.
  2. Select the button layer and go to the action tab. http://d.pr/i/kqmWfe
  3. The code should be something like: 
    IRON.sonaar.player.setPlayer({ id:"1218", title:"Playlist Title" });
    To change the playlist, enter your own playlist ID instead of 1218 above. The playlist ID is your playlist post id that can be found by going to wp-admin > playlist. See screenshot: https://d.pr/i/8f2US2
  4. In addition, you can change the label of your playlist title by changing the Title in the code: IRON.sonaar.player.setPlayer({ id:"1218", title:"Playlist Title" });

Add an audio player to a page:

  1. Go to WP-Admin > Pages and edit the page of your choice (ex: Homepage)
  2. Make sure you are using the Backend editor mode: http://d.pr/i/7fOA
  3. Add a new row
  4. Into this row, add an Audio Player widget: http://d.pr/i/14zQt
  5. Make sure to choose the album (or multiple albums) you want to play in your page. http://d.pr/i/1jEA7

Add MP3s, and create new albums and playlists.

  1. Go to WP-Admin > Playlist> Add New
  2. Enter the title of your album and an optional description.
  3. Make sure to set your album cover as the featured image: http://d.pr/i/19Lv4
  4. Fill the text fields under Album Infos with your own content.
  5. Upload your MP3 for each track you have for that album. Only MP3 files are allowed.
  6. Save it.

Create a Music page and shows your album into it:

  3. Save your page.
  4. To edit the grid's size or the number of columns, etc. go to wp-admin > Ess. Grid > and edit the predefined grid you'd like.
