How to post audio in a wordpress post

Posted by Shawn Smith on January 30, 2009

  1. Make sure the name of your file has no spaces in it’s name. It should look something like this “20090129-interview-obama.mp3” without the quote marks.
  2. Upload the file to the web folder in your AFS space. The URL of your file should be http://www.msu.edu/~YOURNAME/FILENAME.mp3
  3. Copy the URL of your file.
  4. Paste the following code into the HTML mode of your wordpress entry:
  5. Paste the URL of your file in the following code: [audio YOURURL]
  6. When you preview your entry, you will see the audio player with your audio. In the post-entry page, you should only see the link to the audio and not the player. You will only see the player on the userside of the page.

Example: [audio http://wpcom.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/mattmullenweg-interview.mp3]
