Cascade

Audio

Description

The audio aggregator looks through an entire site for any audio widgets that have been created. It will then filter by looking at the keywords supplied by the user and cross referencing them with the keywords in the meta-data field of the audio widgets.

The audio aggregator also displays the results in a specific view. This view allows people visiting the site to play the audio clip right there on the page, without having to go to a page where the audio widget itself is placed.

How-to

To create a new Audio widget you must first select the parent folder (We recommend adding it to audio in the widgets folder). Then head to the "New" dropdown menu in the upper left and select Widgets>>Audio. This will create a new Audio widget in the selected parent folder. Select your new Audio widget page and select "edit", you may now configure your new widget.

See the Form Fields section to see what each field corresponds to in the General and Thumbnail View Options. You may upload an MP3 file from your computer by going to the "New" dropdown menu and selecting Default>>File. You may also upload a cover art image as well by selecting Files>>Image from the "New" dropdown. These files may be linked to the widget by clicking on the corresponding field and navigating to the appropriate Cascade files.

Note: Remember to maintain the file type extension in the system name of the audio file when uploading (rock_song.mp3)
