New Feature: Controlling Your Tabs and Updating Streaming Playback/Audition Files

control your tabbed navigation on SourceAudio

Re-order your tabs, change what they say, and update the URL they point to

As part of our effort to continually increase the flexibility of the platform and the control you have over customizing your site to meet your specific needs, we just launched a new tool that will allow you to take total control over your main navigation tabs. With this new tool you can re-order your tabs, rename them, and even update the URLs they click-through to. The click-throughs can be either internal or external links - that's totally up to you. To access this new tool just go to Edit Site Settings > Tabs. Once you get there you'll see that it's pretty intuitive. One thing to note: to update URLs make sure you handle internal URLs a little bit differently than external URLs. For internal URLs you only need to include everything that appears after the end of your root domain. So, if my URL is and I want to point a tab to, all I need to put in the URL field is "#albums" and it knows exactly where to go. If I have an external site or page I want to point to from a tab then I need to provide the full URL.

Another backend update we made is to the streaming audition files and how those get encoded and updated. From now on whenever you update any file format on a particular track/sound effect the streaming audition file will be updated as well. So, if you want to update the streaming version of any song just upload the new version of that file and you're all set.

Some more exciting news and features are right around the corner...stay tuned!


Another Great Feature: List Page Default View Control

SourceAudio default line listing view control

Set the view you like best for every list page on your site

Many of our partners have asked for this flexibility so we're happy to announce our latest feature: default line listing view control for every list page on your site. Some of you like the Simple view, some like the Art view, and others like the  Detailed/block view for tracks, albums, labels, catalogs, artists and composer list pages. Now the control is 100% in your hands. To set the default view for each of your list pages just go to the General tab in your Admin Panel and scroll down to the new "List Default Views" section. Each list page on your site will be represented in this section, and to set the default view simply grab the drop down and select your view of choice. It's that easy. Remember one thing - users have the ability to control their own default view for various pages on the site and if they do so, that setting will maintain priority over the site-level defaults.

It's all yours. Go ahead and set your new page view defaults!
