How To Use The Audio Element

The Audio Element is easy to add anywhere in your content. Just add the Element to any column.

Adding your audio file in the first option, Audio. You can either select one already in the media library, or you can upload one. This element uses a HTML5 tag, and so supports all major audio formats, including .mp3, .wav, & .m4a.

Once you have added your audio file, continue configuring the element with your preferred styling options. This element can also be styled in conjunction with the containing column. Read below for a detailed description of all element options.
