click on your playlist
you'll see this on that page.  Click the Generate Code Link



On the next page go to the very bottom and choose:
E. Get the code for any other social network, blog or your own personal website

If you get a page telling you to choose which playlist you want the code for choose the one you want.

Next Page:  Fix the settings to your liking then click Get Code:


 
Next Page:  Copy the code.

Go to your forum Admin CP>Manage styles>Headers/footers
Put the code in either your header or your footer.... that ones up to you

The code they give you on that site can be directly pasted in the webpage editor using the html link.

i had this on our forum, thanks for posting the link to it.

we had to remove it though as members didnt like the way it refreshed to another track everytime they viewed a mew thread or page.

is there anyway of setting this so it doesnt do that?

I found that by opening 1 page for the music, then open a second forum home page for your browsing, that way the pages you are clicking on will not affect the player on the other page. I tried it out, it works excellent!

This seems to be a total waste of time in New Zealand... either that or the site has a bug or 5...

Will we have to get a new code if we decide to add another song to the playlist?

How does one do that?
