Wimpy MP3 Player for WordPress

Installation is a three-step process:

1) Install and test Wimpy to ensure that Wimpy works properly on your server.

2) Add the necessary PHP code to your template/theme so that your pages can display the player.

3) Configure, install and activate the plugin through the WordPress admin interface.


1) Install and test Wimpy to ensure that Wimpy works properly on your server.

Download and install the Wimpy demo package:

Click here to download Wimpy

Follow the quick start installation instructions to get the player setup and running.

Click here for instructions.

After installing Wimpy, you should use the Customizer tool at wimpyplayer.com to generate a customized wimpy player, which will allow you to set the player options and specify a custom skin.

 

2) Add the necessary PHP code to your template/theme so that your pages can display the player.

Add the PHP code above to your template/theme by copying and pasting the above code into your template/theme.

You will have to determine exactly where you want the player to appear on your page(s).

For example: If you are using the "default" template/theme, and want the player to appear in the right-hand side bar, open the file named "sidebar.php" which is located here:

wp-content/themes/default/sidebar.php

At the very top of the page you will see the following:

<div id="sidebar">

     <ul>

          <li>

Add the code so that sidebar.php looks like:

<div id="sidebar">
      <?php makeWimpyPlayer() ?>
      <ul>

            <li>

This will place the player at the top of the right-hand sidebar menu.

After you have edited your template/theme page(s) upload the modified page(s) to your server.

 

3) Configure, install and activate the plugin through the WordPress admin interface.

Click here to download the plugin.

Edit the variable $wimpyHTML

Open the Wimpy Player Plugin file (wp-wimpyplayer.php) in a text editor and edit the variable $wimpyHTML to the proper location of your customized Wimpy Player.

Example:
http://www.yoursite.com/mp3s/myWimpy.html

NOTE: The location of this file may vary according to your particular installation. Your best bet is to use a full URL, however, some PHP installations may not allow a full URL, so you may want to try a relative path:
$wimpyHTML = "../mp3s/myWimpy.html";

... or absolute path:
$wimpyHTML = "/mp3s/myWimpy.html";

Your best bet is to stick with a URL though:
http://www.yoursite.com/mp3s/myWimpy.html

Save the wp-wimpyplayer.php file an upload it to your WordPress plugins folder. by default the plugins folder is located here:

/wp_install_folder/wp-content/plugins/

Activate the Wimpy Player Plugin

Access the WordPress admin area and then click on the "plugins" tab. Click the "active" link next to the listing for Wimpy Player.

 

That's it, you're done!
