I first found out about Grooveshark via an ordinary utopia. Previously, I had been using Playlist. The two websites are actually based on similar concepts, but it only took me a few minutes to decide that Grooveshark was far superior. For one thing, Grooveshark has a lot more music available, and in general the music is a lot higher quality. (You aren't as likely to run into songs that don't work or aren't recorded well.) It's also more aesthetically interesting and pleasant. Also (and this is the important part) Grooveshark offers a highly customizable music gadget that works beautifully. Curious? Let's talk about it =)
Part 1: Generating the GadgetGenerating a code for your music gadget is very easy. First (obviously) you need to create a playlist or find the song that you want to share. To share a playlist, you need to go to the main page for that playlist and find the "Share" button. (It's highlighted in the clip below.)
Part 2: Embedding Music in a Page or Post
Have you ever noticed the "Compose" and "HTML" buttons at the top of your posting page? (To tell the truth, it took a whole year for me to notice it.) When you're writing your post, the button is naturally switched on to "Compose." However, if you want to embed an HTML code into your post (or page), you need to switch over to HTML.
When you click on HTML, your post is going to turn into a bunch of gobbledygook. (I believe that it's mostly made up of your text and image URLs)
my playlist page for an example.)
So what do you think? Did you enjoy my little tutorial? (I did. Haha!) Let me know if you have any questions or any comments to add to this.
