Here’s a quick installation guide on installing Stratus on your WordPress:
- Install the WordPress plugin which adds an admin interface for setting up the player, by searching for stratus in Plugins > Add New within your WordPress admin interface.
- Once installed, go activate the plugin on the Plugins page in your WordPress admin interface.
- When activated, click Settings on the Stratus plugin listing on the Plugins page and define your settings.
- Can I keep Stratus playing even when the page reloads?
Not currently. Your site would need to be built so that it doesn’t reload rather than the player. However, we do provide a popup function that users can click to enjoy your tunes while browsing your site.
- How can I make YouTube videos appear below Stratus?
The trick is adding
?wmode=transparentto each of your YouTube videos. That will force the YouTube embed to appear below Stratus as it should.
