I have no idea if X3 is capable of doing the following, and quite likely I am (yet again) trying to do the impossible with X3 :upside_down:.
I wish to use the Audio Player Plugin on one of my X3 sites. I note your recommendation to:
I will have a warning to the users, before they enter that gallery (folder), that it contains audio and that they might wish to turn their volume down, or mute their speakers if the audio will disturb other people around them :slight_smile:.Only include audio if you really need to. Audio on websites is not considered good practice and will hog the bandwidth of your visitors.
The audio file that I wish to use is just over 18-minutes long, and I wish to use it on only 1 of my galleries HERE and its sub-galleries (WARNING TO YOU: Lower your speakers :sunglasses:), not on my entire X3 site.
While experimenting, when I place that MP3 file in the /custom/audio folder, I can navigate to & from all the sub-galleries and that audio file continues to play continously with no interruptions, which is exactly how I wish the audio to play.
But again, I wish for that audio file to play only when users end up in that 1 specific gallery & all of its sub-galleries, and not when the user is outside of that 1 specific gallery.
Looking at this:
...when I disable that audio file in the /custom/audio folder and instead have it located in that 1 specific gallery that I want it to play from, the audio file plays fine, but only while I'm in that 1 actual gallery... when I go into any of the sub-galleries (folders) in that gallery with the audio file, the audio stops, which is exact the way X3 says it works:You can also upload mp3 files directly into your pages, in which case they will play when the specific page is visited.
So it would seem that in order for this to work for me, I would need that MP3 file to be located in X3's default /custom/audio folder, but somehow tell X3 to play that audio file only when the user is in that 1 specific gallery and/or any of its sub-galleries, and nowhere else.in which case they will play when the specific page is visited.
Am I (yet again) wishing for X3 to do the impossible, or would there be a simple way of accomplishing this?
Thank you in advance & have yourself a great day.
