‘Spillers who post music, please read on after the jump::
Well, hallo. Due to what appears to be dropbox throwing a strop about their bandwidth, I have taken Maki’s advice (given a while ago!) and got some proper extra storage on wordpress itself.
This means that there should now be no need to flip betwix ‘box n ‘Spill when you’re putting music in a post.
There’s a wee icon with a musical note on it, when yuo’re composing a post just along from where it says upload/insert. You press this, select your file to upload, and away you go. Once uploaded, it’ll generate a web address that you can use in the same way you would a link from dropbox.
The upsurge in traffic seems to be due to getting The ‘Spill listed on shuffler.fm - which is a site that uses music blogs as a radio, and one whose popularity seems to be growing by the day!
If you press play on the player above and music can be heard, it’s safe to say the new system works.
I’m not saying we can’t use dropbox anymore – this measure is just to avoid tunes being made unavailable at the wrong time.
Any questions in the comments please!!
