Starting the player from Slider Revolution.
We sometimes use a "Play" button in the big banner on the homepage. The play button needs to be linked to an audio player on your homepage.
- Edit your homepage and edit the audio player you will see there.
- Choose the album you want to use when the Play button is clicked from Slider Revolution.
- To tell Slider Revolution which player you want to fire when you click on the play button, go to wp-admin > Slider Revolution and edit the slide.
- Select the play button and go to the action tab. http://d.pr/i/kqmWfe
- Notice the "0" in this code? This means that the first player that shows on your homepage will be fired so make sure that your homepage player is above all the other player on your homepage.
