Greeting to all of you who are constantly using our Creators site!

  • Please change the link "Music" to "Audio."

    Some of us have members that would like to upload audio other than music... such as radio shows and interviews.

    I would appreciate this very much.

    Thank you.

    • Hi, you can easily change the links to what you want in the page via site&pages. Also you can change anything that mentions music to Audio other than the page changes mentioned by going to the language editor, search Music then replace with Audio ( don't forget to save the page )

  • Is it possible to add a "Who Can View" to the audio page (as it is with other pages)? Want to be able to create one page with snippets of songs for site members to view (and listen to), and another page for only members of that page to view (and be able to listen to the full song). This will make it easier to create a subscription page for the member only section. 

    • Hi there!

      Unfortunately, there is no such setting for the music page and I don't know whether it's not available on purpose or not. I'll create the suggestion to add such functionality and when the management would let me know about their decision or would provide any information regarding this suggestion I'll let everybody know here on creators.

      Best wishes,

      Ning Team.

      • Thanks for the response Kyryl. Mich appreciated. I hope this is something they do introduce. Does anyone know of a script that can hide a page and make it viewable only to group members?
        • Hi Henry,

          Well, such script could be created, but it has several cons. If you have the group with a large number of members maybe around 5-10k it would be working slowly, and the other one is that it would be necessary to update the list of group members manually that would be used to see whether the page should be presented to the member or not.

          If you really need this and you are ok with the cons I have mentioned, I can try to create the script for you and post it here on creators when I'll have some free time :-)

          Best regards,

          Ning Team.

          • Thanks for the offer, and letting me know the cons. I'll seek another alternative for now, and hope Ning will add this at a later date.
            • Hi there!

              If you change your mind you can always find me here :-)

              Best regards,

              Ning Team.

  • Can we get a download feature for this audio feature?

    • Hi there!

      It's possible to insert download button near each track with the custom code.

      In this code, I have used the icon provided by the "Font Awesome icons", however, you can use images, CSS drawn buttons, basically, everything that could be a link or a button. However, as I'm using "Font Awesome icons I'll include the instruction how to embed them on the site.

      Instructions to install:

      1. Follow this link http://fontawesome.io/get-started/,it would be necessary to enter your email address and the embed code would be sent to your email. Then you should open your inbox and you will the message from them with the embed code. It should look like this <script src="https://use.fontawesome.com/2f312ec9ff.js"></script>. Copy the code and paste it in the Custom Code tab to the <Head> code field (it's not in the Design studio, just in case), and don't forget to save the changes.

      2. The code that would be executed:

      <script>

      var dmusic = function () {
      var tracks = x$(".audioPage-playlist__item");
      for (i=1;i<tracks.length;i++)
      {
      var link=x$(tracks[i]).children();
      var title=x$(link[0]).text();
      link=x$(link[0]).attr('data-playlist-mp3');
      x$(tracks[i]).append('<a href="'+ link + '" download style="height:35px; width:35px; margin-left:3px;margin-top:1px;" title="Download'+title+'"><i class="fa fa-download fa-2x" aria-hidden="true"></i></a>');
      };
      };

      x$(window).load(function ()
      {
      var del = setInterval(function ()
      {
      if (x$('.audioPage-playlist__item').length)
      {
      clearInterval(del);
      dmusic();
      }
      }, 100);
      });

      x$('.audioPageList__item_wrap').click(function ()
      {
      x$(".audioPage-playlist__item").remove();
      var del = setInterval(function ()
      {
      if (x$('.audioPage-playlist__item').length)
      {
      clearInterval(del);
      dmusic();
      }
      }, 100);
      });
      </script>

      You should copy this code and paste it into the Custom Code tab into End of Page Code field, just after all the script that you have there.

      3. A bit of styling would be necessary. Here is the code that goes to the custom CSS (this one is in the design studio)

      .fa.fa-download.fa-2x { color:white; }
      .fa.fa-download.fa-2x:hover {color:#25c916; text-decoration:none;}

      As I have seen you have a white text in the music player so I guess it would be ok if the button would be white as well.

      To change color on hover just change this #25c916 color code to the one you want, http://htmlcolorcodes.com/color-picker/ this site can help to pick the color code.

      Hope this helps.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

      P.S. Forgotten preview.

      If there is any help needed with installation, just let me know :-)
