Adding Audio Clips in WordPress takes only a couple of minutes. Our platform is set up for the playback of audio clips in mp3 format. To get the best result the following steps are recommended:
1) Check title of your audio clip – right click the mp3 file in Windows Explorer on your computer / click properties / click details / edit the title how you want the audio clip to read in the audio player / click OK.
2) Upload your audio clip to the media library – Click Media / Add New / Drag and drop your audio clip into the upload box (same procedure as uploading images).
3) Embed your audio clip into your post – Edit your Post / Click HTML / Position your cursor where the audio button should be placed / Click Upload-Insert (Add Media) / Click Media Library / Click Audio / Select your audio clip (Show) / Click File URL / Click Insert into Post / Click Visual
You will then see the title of your audio clip, which has an embedded link to the audio clip (in blue). Save your Post as a draft / Click View Post
You should now see the audio player on the left hand side where you positioned it. After clicking on the start button the player should open and the audio clip will play.
When you’re satisfied with the result, Click Publish to finalize your Post.
You can embed as many audio clips in a post as you wish, and also place them anywhere in the post. Only one audio clip will play at any one time. If you click on a second audio clip, the first audio clip will cease to play.
