Adding Background Music to Website

Adding Background Music to your site:

1)

Before you can upload the audio file in your COOLSite Admin, please make sure that the file is in a .WAV or .MP3 format and then click on "File Storage" from the menu on the left in your COOLSite Admin. Click on the "Upload" button and then select the file that you want to Upload and click "Open" when done.  Once the file is done uploading, you should now see the file listed. Right click on the file and choose "Get URL" and Highlight & Copy the URL from the popup box and save it somewhere like notepad.


2)

Click on "Meta Tags" from the menu on the left and then copy and paste the following into the HTML HEAD TEXT box:


<embed src="http://Storage1.Colony1.Net/XXXXX/Content/message.wav" autostart="true" loop="true" width="2" height="0"></embed>
<noembed><bgsound src="http://Storage1.Colony1.Net/XXXXX/Content/message.wav" mce_src="http://Storage1.Colony1.Net/XXXXX/Content/message.wav" loop="infinite"></noembed>


*NOTE: YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE "http://Storage1.Colony1.Net/XXXXX/Content/message.wav" IN THE THREE INSTANCES ABOVE WITH THE URL THAT YOU COPIED PREVIOUSLY FROM YOUR UPLOAD FILES SECTION.  ALSO, WHEN YOU REPLACE THIS URL, PLEASE BE SURE TO KEEP THE "" AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF THE ADDRESS AS IT IS SHOWN IN THE HTML CODE ABOVE.


When you are done making the changes to the URL, you will need to click on the "Submit" button below to save your changes.


3)

You can now view your website and the background music should begin playing automatically (this may take some time to start playing, depending on the file size of your .WAV or .MP3 file and your Internet connection speed).  If at any point you would like to stop the music, you can click on the "Stop" button on your browser or press the "Esc" key on your keyboard.

*NOTE: There may be some incompatibility issues with this, depending on your browser / plugins.
