Create an audio post

WordPress comes with a great feature called auto-embeds. It allows WordPress to automatically get the embed code for audio playlists from popular audio hosting sites like SoundCloud. Follow the steps below to create an Audio blog post:

1. First, you need to select the blog post format. You’ll find a “Format” module in the right-hand column of your post editor – it’ll look like this:

Make sure to select the Audio option.

2. All you need to do is paste the SoundCloud page URL into the post editor. Make sure that the URL is in it’s own line and not clickable (hyperlinked). If you are using the visual editor, then WordPress will immediately fetch the embed code and display the audio iframe inside the post editor.

3. Upload a featured image for the post.

4. You can now save your post and click on the preview button to see the audio embed in your blog post.
