ADDING NEW MUSIC

 

Ready to add new music to your website? Here are a few of the things you'll need:

  • Music image 500 pixels X 250 pixels
  • mp3 or mp4 audio file 
  • 1-2 sentence description for the music

Steps to add music to your website:

  1. Add a full-width text box (this will be the title of your music). It should be H3. 
  2. Add an image box. Don't forget to include Filename (Optional) text - this helps with SEO and SEM (i.e. William Baird Composer Autumn Leaves sample music).
  3. Add an audio block. Fill in the Title and Author/Artist. 
  4. Add another full-width text box. This will be the 1-2 sentence description for the music. 

Tip:

The key to adding new music is lining everything up properly. Make sure you stack content blocks so they line up vertically. This will ensure everything looks good on different screen sizes.
