Wimpy MP3 Player Customizer

Customizer is a web-based interface for configuring your Wimpy MP3 Player. The Customizer allows you to quickly and easily change your configuration settings whenever you wish. The HTML code generated by the Customizer allows you to insert any number of Wimpy MP3 Players, anywhere on your website.

Quick Start

1. Launch Customizer

Click here to open the Customizer Tool.

 

NOTE: The "Registration Code" field is used for license holders. Entering a valid license code removes the "DEMO" box from the player. If you're just testing Wimpy, leave the "Registration Code" field set to "YOUR_REG_CODE." Doing so will allow you to quickly edit the HTML code after purchasing a license.

 

2. Locate the Wimpy Installation Folder (WIF)

The Wimpy Installation folder (refered to as the WIF) is the folder on your web server that contains all of the Wimpy Files.

For example, if you've uploaded Wimpy files to the following folder:

http://www.yoursite.com/mp3s/wimpy.php
http://www.yoursite.com/mp3s/wimpy.swf

Then your "Wimpy Installation folder" would be:

http://www.yoursite.com/mp3s/

 

3. Select Playlist Type

By default "Automatic" is selcted. We highly recommend using the Automatic feature, because it is the easiest way to populate the player with tracks.

When Wimpy is using the Automatic option, Wimpy will automatically create a playlist within the player based on all the MP3 files located in the WIF.

The automatic playlist allows you to manage what appears in the player by simply managing the contents of your WIF. You can even use subfolders to organize your MP3 files within the WIF. Subfolders appear within Wimpy with a + symbol to the left, allowing folks to browse your entire collection.

4. Locate a skin file

Skin files are "XML" files and they are located in the "skins" folder within the WIF.

Type the URL to the skin of your choice into the "Wimpy Skin" field.

An example URL to a skin file would be:

http://www.yoursite.com/mp3s/skins/skin_blackdawn.xml

Click here for more information on locating a skin file.

You can browse for new skins, or review the skins here.

 

 

 

 

5. Get the Code

Scroll to the bottom of the Customizer Tool and click the button.

You will be prompted to save a file with the name of "myWimpy.html" to your PC. You can test this newly created "myWimpy.html" file after saving it to your local machine by opening the file with a web browser.

NOTE: If you receive an error, or the myWimpy.html file doesn't work when opening it directly with your browser, you may need to upload the file to your web server for it to work properly.

NOTE: You can rename the file to anything you want, so long as you keep the "html" extension.

 

6. Upload the "myWimpy.html" file

Using your FTP program, upload the file to your web site.

We recommend uploading this file to your Wimpy installation folder, but you are free to upload it to any location.

 

 

7. Test

Using a web browser, enter the URL to the "myWimpy.html" file that you just uploaded.

 

8. Put the player on another web page.

Open the "myWimpy.html" file and copy and paste all of the code used to display Wimpy.

Copy and paste all the code beginning with:

<!-- START WIMPY PLAYER CODE -->

and ending with:

<!-- END WIMPY PLAYER CODE -->

In the image to the right you'll see that the code used to display Wimpy is highlighted in yellow. The grey'd out code should not be included when copying and pasting.
