Default MP3 Tag

I've added another new feature - an MP3 tag to insert any MP3 you post into a streaming player. Here's how it works:

Copy the URL for whatever MP3 you want to post, and paste it into the post. Highlight the text.

When you are writing your post, you'll see on the far right of post icons a little picture of a note. Click on that, and it will automatically put MP3 tags around the URL and insert it into a player once you post.

Alternatively, you can put the MP3 tags in yourself. it's just like the Image tags, only instead of putting "img" in the brackets, you put "mp3."

OK, here's a test.

After the Thrill Is Gone (Long Beach Alan Cranston Benefit 1980, Eagles' last show for a while)



Click (or double-click in some browsers) on the arrow and it plays! Ouila!

How do I copy the URL? The MP3 I want to post is in my Itunes library.

It has to be uploaded to have a URL - you can upload it to sites like http://www.mediafire.com/ (However, you still may have to link to it instead of use the MP3 tag if it doesn't give you a .mp3 URL)
