How do I add an mp3 to my entry?

You can embed an mp3 file in a blog entry as long as the file is stored elsewhere online. You can't upload an mp3 file to your blog.

  1. Sign in to your blog and start a new entry.
  2. Write your entry in the Text of entry icon Text of entry box.
  3. Go to the mp3 file in your web browser and copy the URL from the browser address bar (ending in .mp3).
  4. Go back to your blog entry and select the Insert embedded media button in the toolbar.
  5. In the Insert embedded media popup, paste the mp3 URL in the top text field:
    Insert embedded media popup showing mp3 url
  6. Click Insert at the bottom of the popup box. You should now see the URL enclosed in [media] tags like this:

  7. You can test the mp3 is embedded and working by previewing your entry.
  8. When you've finished writing your entry click Publish now.
  9. You should now see the mp3 player in your live entry and be able to listen to it.
