How to add a Soundcloud Player Widget

If you’d like to add a Soundcloud Player widget instead please use the following instructions:

  1. Login to Soundcloud.com and click either:
    • Tracks: To display a player with a single track.
    • Sets: To display a player with a playlist.
  2. Click Share, and copy the embed code
  3. Login to your Bandzoogle account
  4. From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’ and open the page on which you’ll be working
  5. Click ‘Add feature’
  6. Select the ‘HTML code’ feature
  7. Use the placement arrows on that page to set the feature’s location
  8. Paste the Soundcloud embed code into the text box
  9. Click ‘Save’

Notes:

  • The Soundcloud player embed code places a widget on your website. Since this is not a Bandzoogle feature it will not skin to the style/colors you have chosen for your website. For a more cohesive look please use Bandzoogle’s built-in music feature and import your Soundcloud tracks.
  • We cannot modify or provide support for external HTML code. If you have questions or concerns about the embedded feature, or require support for the widget, you’ll need to contact the company that supplied the code.
