Frequently Asked Questions about GuildPortal Hosting


Q: How do I add music to a page?

From the Control Panel, click on Site Pages.  A listing of pages on your site is displayed.  To the right of each page is a link that says "Sound."  Click that link.  A window will open up asking for the URL of the sound file and how many times you want it to loop for visitors to the page.

The URL must be a fully-qualified URL pointing to a location on the internet.  URLs pointing to a folder on your hard drive will not work.  For example, if you are a subscriber guild, you can upload files and the URL will be something like http://www.axiomfiles.com/yourguildnumber/filename.mp3 (that link is an example.  Clicking it will do nothing).

Which types of files can be played depends on the browsers visiting your site.

Common sound problem:  The file placed in that area in not sound file, but just a URL.  Most sound files will end with “.mp3” or “.wav” .  If the URL you put in the sound area does not have :dot something:" at the end it might not work.

Common Upload problem:  file size is to large.  (needs to be under 4MB)
