How to put up a "persistently playing" music player jukebox

 4:52 pm on Jul 30, 2007 (gmt 0)

(I put this here because I thought Ajax or JS might be the answer)

I am creating a Wordpress site for a music artist. I'm playing around with several music players to see what I like. I've found a few and can easily embed them into a page. But the client would like to have a jukebox with all his sounds that shows up on every displaying page (like in the sidebar or header, that does not restart each time the user clicks a link to display something else.

Someone mentioned that if I use ajax I might be able to do that. I don't understand this though. Does anyone?

Also, everydayjones.com is an example of a site that has a persistently planning jukebox. I doubt it's WP, but how the heck is this done?

I'm not a programmer, so if you know how to do this, I need it kind of spelled out. :)

I don't know if there is a JS solution, but one thing you could do is use a frames page and embed the juke box in the frame that doesn't change, though frames are not SE recommended. Juat a thought.

I tried finding a solution to this myself and having come up with nothing acceptable I added a user activated pop-up with just the "jukebox".

The example you listed uses frames which have their own issues.

you might look into CoolPlayer 9 for WordPress.
i don't think you can have a persistent embedded object in a web page without frames.
