How to put it on your sidebar

How to add a sidebar widget. From illustration
  1. Create a configuration for a sidebar widget, for example called “sidebar widget style 1″. You can use the Settings--> FMP:Config Editor to do this, and it will create a XML config file called sidebar-widget-style-1.xml in your configuration list.
  2. Create a playlist, for example called “playlist in homepage sidebar”. You can use the Settings-->FMP:Playlist Editor to do this, and it will create a XML playlist called playlist-in-homepage-sidebar.xml in your playlists list.
  3. Go to Appearance --> Widgets and drag a “Flash MP3 Player JW” to your sidebar. Then you should set the title, width and height of the widget, choose the config file sidebar-widget-style-1.xml and playlist playlist-in-homepage-sidebar.xml, click save, done!
  4. You can create a lot of different config files and playlists and add a player to every sidebar (if you have more than one), each one with a different config and playlist.

How to embed it in your post or page

  1. Just like what you do in “put it on your sidebar”
  2. Just like what you do in “put it on your sidebar”
  3. Add a new post. Click the media button, which is a blue “Play” button, to call the wizard panel.
  4. You can either choose config file and playlist or not. If not, just set a single song’s url. Click insert button and the short code to call the player will be inserted to your post.

How to put it in other place of your blog

To put the player in other place of your blog is not so easy as above. You should know something about template tags of WordPress.

The code to call the player is like this:

$args = array(
//the entire url of the config file, must
'config_url' => '',
//the entire url of the playlist file (optional)
'playlist_url' => '',
'width' => 230,
'height' => 350,
'id' => '',
'class' => '',
'transparent' => true//this is default
'autostart' => false//this is default
'file' => '' //the entire url of the MP3 file (optional)
//you should set either "playlist_url" or "file"

How to backup your playlist files

Now you have just one method to backup your playlist file is to use ftp connect to your server, and download the /wp-content/fmp-jw-files/playlists directory. If you want to restore your playlists, just upload the playlists files to the /wp-content/fmp-jw-files/playlists directory.

The JW Player and FLA File Download

The player embedded in this plugin is so-called JW Player, which is the same as the player in YouTube. But the player in this plugin is the version 2.3 of JW Player, the reason for this version is because the size of the player file is just 9.5K bytes. It is very fast for the browser to load this player in. The short hand of it is that this player can just play audio. Just as the name of this plugin, it is an mp3 player, so the function of the version 2.3 is suitable. A lot of designer want to customize the look the player, so I give you it here.

Player Printer, Config Editor and Playlist Editor

This plugin is composite of three parts. The first is Player Printer. This thing is used to put the mp3 player on your page. Its core is a template tag, and extended forms are sidebar widget and shortcode. The second and the third is two XML file editors, Config Editor and Playlist Editor. They are just two XML file creating helpers. If you know how to edit a XML file, you can edit them, include config file and playlist file, locally and upload them to your server yourself.
