Special Features

Intro Slideshow

To turn the intro slideshow feature on we just need to go into the advanced tab and edit the ‘main page’ source template. Underneath the line that says:

so.addParam(“scale”, “noscale”);

we just need to add this line:

so.addVariable(“intro”, “3”);

The 3 tells us how many images there are in the slideshow (it can be any number). After that is set, you can just upload images to the extra files section located in the advanced tab that follow the naming convention ‘intro1.jpg’, ‘intro2.jpg’, ‘intro3.jpg.

Note that if a background image is set in the admin tools, this will override the Intro and the intro will not play (you will just see the background image). you will need to make sure the background feature is not checked in the site settings – background.

To add songs to your site, upload them from your Admin panel under: Advanced > Extra Files > Upload New Extra Files. You can upload up to 3 tracks and the file names must be exactly as follows (case sensitive):




The jukebox will read ID3 tags from MP3 files. Depending on what music player you use, you may have to “Convert ID3 Tags…” before they are uploaded to your site. Otherwise the jukebox will not be able to read the author/album information.
