21 February 2022 Considering my monumental digital incompetence, is there a way to upload and play short audio files (MP3, WAV, WMA) as posts? I've looked at and even installed and activated a few highly rated appropriate plugins. And that's as far as I've got. They all call for players and that's the first thing that stymies me because I'd have thought that plugins with "player" in their titles wouldn't need external players. I can't even upload the files to the media library. I was hoping to give my readers some Chopin music on his 212th birthday tomorrow. But in the circumstance I reckon that's out of the question. Not to worry, I'll scan some sheet music . . .
Hi Paul, You don't need a third-party plugin to add simple audio files to your posts. Just add an Audio Block and you'll be set! This video (part of the WordPress 101 course) covers how to add audio to your posts using the Audio Block: https://wp101.com/tutorial/embed-video-or-audio/ Hope this helps!
