    I came to this post from a youtube video about setting up a podcast in wordpress. I installed the 1 pixel plug in and am putting in the audio tag just like this but in the preview I get [audio .mp3]. No player.

  2. First question I would ask is, are you using or your own hosted wordpress solution?

    If you are using which is shown in the video, you need to include the URL into the brackets for example it should look like this [audio http://theURLofWhereYourFileIsHosted.mp3]

    If that doesn't work, go ahead and copy and paste into here, everything you are trying to post so I can take a look.


  3. Hey, I am hosting my own. I actually solved the problem by adding a colon. So, the tag is [audio: .mp3]. I have the latest (to my knowledge) version of wordpress, maybe it now requires the colon? All I know is that it WILL NOT work without it. Thanks for the response though. I'm looking forward to the tutorials on setting up a podcast! Thanks again!
