Hey There - did I miss a memo?

The Amazon MP3 option is gone? I know the Wizzley team doesn't do anything they don't have to, but usually I know it is coming?

If it had to be taken down, this is REALLY gonna hurt. We have so many music Wizzleys where that option totally enhances our article. I think of our new article on Phil Spector that featured Phil in the Teddy Bears. Let's see...Blind Melon's "No Rain" reference, Mitch Heberg's comedy sample...

Oh I hope it's a glitch...or it is going to hurt our music Wizzleys given we would use a song or sample as a topic/reference.

Well it was there yesterday, which is why I'm perplexed. My Phil Spector article used it when I published yesterday, but this morning the module was gone.

If it had to go, it had to...but I was just surprised. And Wizzley Admin has a great track record of heads up notice, even feedback when it is an optional change, so was caught a bit off guard. Will find out soon enough, I'm sure!

I couldn't reach Simon, yet, so I'm not quite sure what's going on. Will send him a message and ask for clarification.

Yes, it's gone. The mp3 widget was hardly used, caused technical trouble on Amazon's end, and - since AdBlockers are quite common today - most users wouldn't even see it.

Then let me add the following to my Ode To Wizzley...

Ahem,

Making pages is easy, fun and a breeze

All that is missing are cool MP3s

Guess I've got a bit of editing to do when I get back to Montana...oh well.....

No editing necessary, Robin. Simon fixed it manually on all articles with the MP3 module.

Hey Chef!

What I meant is that I need to check my music articles because I believe in text modules I may have referred to "remember the song ______? Be sure to listen to it in the MP3 below" and things like that. So I need to go thru and check music articles so readers aren't confused...plus look on youtube to see if there are any legal/acceptable replacements

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding, Robin. I hope it's not too much extra work.  Smile

Thank you Simon! My Silicon Dreams articles need it (another one going up tonight, in a few minutes in fact...)

 

Do I have to check that before I upload? Guess a youtube video is a better option if I can find one... (personally would rather the MP3 but my audience seem to like their vids).
