A frameset would do the trick, but I'm worried about getting hit as far as SEO rankings go.
A new window would also do the trick, but I can't figure out a way to get this to work without getting blocked by most popup blockers.
Any other ideas?
See the post "FORCE MANY PAGES INTO FRAMES - with one simple script" in this thread: [webmasterworld.com...]
This approach has several major benefits:
.....annoy your users who probably already have music playing.
I often have a stream running while working or playing. If I hit a site that starts playing something overtop I am gone.
Many threads on this topic. Do a search and paste out a selection of responses made by professionals. If they sill want the music - so long as they sign the check, let them have it. Take the money.
I would feel an obligation to warn them of the potential consequences of wanting something that a lot of their users may not want. That would bill under 'consulting'.
Personal site, enthusiast site - that's something else. Selling something - then potential sales will be running to the exit.
I think background music is probably the biggest no no for any site..
I would get back to your client and try once again to help them see sense...
I wish to have a flash mp3-player on my website, but I want it to BE ABLE to play as the visitors change page.
This will NOT play automatic, but if a visitor wants to listen to my music, then I would like to have the opportunity to let the player continue playing on the other pages of my site.
Is there a smart way to achieve this, for a newbie?
And, if you moderators wants me to start a new thread on my problem, then it's ok,- just tell me,- I have no intention of hijacking a thread, it just seemed relevant to the theme here.
DrDoc gave the answer in the first reply above. When the user chooses to hear music, then the sound must load through a url that does not unload when the user changes pages. This is either done by putting the entire site in frames or using a popup window.
I just thought it was possible to implement a flash player in a different way than a java-applet or something.
Seems like pop-up may be the solution for me, I think.
Thanks for the answer though. :-)
I have another related question too, but I'll post it in a new thread.
I have searched for how to do this but I haven't found anything, however it doesn't sound like it would be too difficult for someone with decent flash skills, if your client really is set on it.
If I settle for the popup-solution, then I only need to find a code for letting the popup avoid the popup-blocker (atleast in IE), and I have been told there is a code you can implement so the page loads without too many problemss for regular users, but I haven't found it yet.
