How to add music to your wordpress.com posts (Beginner) 10 easy steps


In this Tutorial by me  (Angel Sagar) i will be showing you in 10 easy steps on how to add music to your wordpress.com posts.

Step 1: Google Mp3 Raid or any file sharing system that lets you download from a url. Im using Mp3 raid because you dont have to sign up you can just search for a song straight away.

Step 2: Type in mp3 raid search which song or artist you are looking for.

Step 3: Choose you song and click on it.

Step 4: Play the song using their mp3 player to make sure it works and the link to the url is still working.

Step 5: Right click the dowload button and press “copy link location”

Step 6: Open up a new post on your wordpress.com dashboard

Step 7: Select the html tab view for you post.

step 8: Type in the audio player html which is:

Step 9: Making sure to leave a space after the word audio paste your url link by right clicking and selecting paste or using the shortcut keys ctrl+v or command+v for mac.

Step 10: Now go back to you visual tab by clicking it (remember its next to your html tab) now your mp3 player will be their in html code and you can add any other text you want to. i have simply given my mp3 track a title ex) Britney spears song.

And now underneath the text you can see the player, you can just hit the play button and your song should start 😀

    question: does the song start when you enter the blog? or does the viewer have to click play somewhere to listen to it? i want to add the song only like a background soundtrack
    thanks
