How to Add Music Files to a WordPress Website & Increase the Size to Around 500 GB
As the name suggests, a WordPress website can be used to setup a blog. But that’s not all you can do with this open-source blogging platform. In fact, you can use it to store all your media files (e.g., images, videos, and music files). This way, you can use the site to access all the content you’ve created, regardless of whether it’s linked to a blog post or simply sitting in the WordPress media library.
Why would you want to do this? There are several reasons, some of which may be:
- You want to add more music to your site. Perhaps you have a large vinyl collection that you want to showcase. Or maybe you just want to add more music to your overall playlist. Whatever the case may be, you can use the WordPress Media Library to store your music files.
- You want to host videos of yourself or your team speaking. Maybe you’ve got a great announcement to make and want to host a promotional video to showcase it. Or maybe you want to interview some influential figure in the global tech scene. Whatever the case may be, you can use the WordPress Media Library to store your video files.
- You want to build an online music library. Imagine having a huge chunk of the world’s greatest music ever written, performed, or recorded, all in one place. You can use the WordPress Media Library to store your music. This way, you can listen to any song you want, whenever you want. And you don’t have to leave the page.
- You want to create and play YouTube videos. YouTube has a built-in feature that allows you to upload videos from your phone or computer. Once you’ve uploaded the video, you can start adding all the relevant metadata (e.g., title, description, tags). You can use the WordPress Media Library to store your video files so you can easily add more content to your channel. If you’re looking to create a new channel, you can use the WordPress Media Library to store your videos so you can easily reach a wider audience.
As mentioned above, WordPress has a built-in feature that allows you to upload and manage various media files (e.g., images, videos, and songs). This feature is known as the WordPress media library and is located in your WordPress dashboard under the Media & Media Library section. (If you need help finding it, just type “media library” into your browser’s search bar.)
From here, you can upload new media files or browse through your existing media. You can also view metadata (e.g., titles and descriptions) for each piece of content. You can use this media library to store all your media files, whether they’re associated with a blog post or just sitting there in the WordPress media library.
The Importance of Organizing Music
Why is it important to organize your music files? It’s not always easy to find music you want to listen to when you’re searching for new songs. This is why having all your music in one place is useful so you can quickly find what you need. You can also use tags to help you find the music you want to listen to. Let’s say you’re an avid fan of the band X, and you want to create a list of all of their songs to listen to. You can do this by entering their name into the WordPress media library’s search bar and pressing the enter key on your keyboard. This will search your entire media library for all the songs by X. Now, to save you from having to search through all the tracks manually, you can listen to an album by pressing the “playlist” button located at the top of the search results. This will automatically play back all the songs in chronological order.
Organizing your music is important for several reasons. One reason is that it makes it easier for you to find the exact song you’re looking for. Another reason is that it helps you identify quality songs that you may have missed out on. If you have a large collection of music—particularly if it’s organized into playlists by genre—you can also use this tool to find new music that you love and want to add to your collection.
Last but not least, organizing your music helps you identify songwriters and performers you may not have known about. You can use the online database Musixmatch to lookup information about any song. Simply enter the song’s title into the search bar, and hit enter. You’ll then see a thumbnail image, along with song, album, and performer details. You can click on any of these details to be taken to the corresponding info page.
How to Add Music to a WordPress Website
Adding music to your WordPress website is easy. Simply go to the Media & Media Library section of your WordPress dashboard, and click the Add New button. (If you’re a premium user, you can click the Premium button instead.) From here, you can upload or browse to your heart’s content. (You can also download a.zip of your entire media library for future reference.)
If you want to add a song to your site, navigate to the Songs section of your media library. You’ll see several tabs along the top, each representing a different type of content (e.g., lyrics, music notation, etc.).
If you click the All Songs tab, you’ll see a list of all the songs in your library. (You can also sort this list by clicking the heading at the top of the list.)
To add a song to your site, simply click the Add New button next to the song you want to include. (You can add multiple songs by holding down the shift key while clicking the button.)
This will open up a dialogue where you can enter the required metadata for the song (e.g., title, artist, album, genre, and year of release).
For those looking for inspiration, there are several options to choose from. You can browse the WordPress blog dashboard for existing entries you can use as a guide. Or, you can browse the Songs section of your media library to find songs that inspire you.
Tips on How to Easily Access Music on Your WordPress Site
If you want quick and easy access to your music on your WordPress site, you can use a few tricks. First, you can use the WordPress menu to add a “Playlist” to your site. (WordPress menus are essentially like a site’s bookmarks but organized and displayed in a navigable sidebar.)
Second, you can add playlists directly to your Songs section in your media library. To do this, click the Songs tab, and click the Add New button at the top of the page. (Alternatively, you can navigate to the Media & Media Library section of your WordPress dashboard and click the “Add New” button directly there as well.)
A playlist is like an album in that it plays back songs in chronological order. The difference is that playlists can be smaller in size and allow for more flexibility when it comes to what songs are included. (For example, you can add songs from multiple albums to a single playlist.)
To create a playlist, simply enter the first few letters of the artist’s name or band’s name into the WordPress menu’s search bar. This will search your entire media library for all the songs with those initial letters. (You can also manually search for specific songs by entering the song’s title into the search bar.)
For instance, if you want to create a playlist for the band Linkin Park, just enter “linkin park” into the WordPress menu’s search bar. This will return all the songs in your library with that initial string. From here, you can either choose to add the songs to a new playlist or download the entire playlist as a.zip file for later reference.
