    audio in a blog post

    How do I add audio (Soundcloud) to a blog post? If unable, why is this not a feature? Video can be added.

     

    Thanks.

    The main body of a the current blog editor in W+M is not a rich text editor. The special items you can add, image, video (Youtube and Vimeo) and a divider is handled for you, perhaps for ease of use? Maybe the real ask here is to have a HTML section that you could add, then could populate it with SoundCloud embed text?

     

    I couldn't tell you the reason a rich text editor was not included but perhaps that is an addition that can be looked at? Meanwhile you can try to look for duplicate content on YouTube as a workaround? I hope that helps?

     

    ...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.

    Thanks Roy.

     

    An html section would be excellent. GoDaddy pitched W+M's ability to integrate soundcloud on the websites, among other bells and whistles. My website is for my podcast. I can't understand why GoDaddy would not have a similar function on the blog.

     

    Hopefully GoDaddy can provide this function.

    You may be the catalyst for a HTML option in the W+M blog @TexanAbroad? Many podcasts I listen to seem to post all over so even if I discover them on SoundCloud I tend to prefer the YouTube video. There was at one time a Give us feedback on the backend but I'm not sure where that went to? Also a SoundCloud addition to the social media links (or a blank one where you can add your own icon) would be helpful as well.

    Hi @TexanAbroad,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    Take a look at this article for adding a SoundCloud audio track or playlist to your Websites+Marketing builder. Hopefully it will help you with any questions you have regarding the process.

    Thanks @TLH for the link. It's helpful, but not quite what I need. I found a work around by importing an external blog, but it is still not where I want it to be. I've requested that audio or html be an added feature on the W+M blog platform.

     

    Thanks again.
