Manually creating and editing playlists
If your server does not allow PHP, ASP or ColdFusion, which are required for
Wimpy to automatically return a list of the mp3 files on your server, you can
still use Wimpy by creating and editing XML playlists manually.
Playlist.xml files take the place of wimpy.php or wimpy.asp. So to use a playlist,
use the Customizer tool to set the wimpy script file to the playlist.xml file
rather than wimpy.php/asp.
To create an XML playlist manually:
1. Click here to download
some example XML playlists.
2. Open a playlist.xml file in a text editor (such as notepad) and edit the <filename> for
each item so that it is a URL an mp3 file on your server.
3. Upload the edited playlist.xml file to your server.
4. Use the Customizer tool to
create a myWimpy.html file. For the first question enter the URL to the playlist.xml
file on your server. Example:
After answering the remaining questions, save the resulting myWimpy.html file
to your local machine, then upload it to your server, or incorporate the HTML
into an existing page.
NOTE: Be sure to empty your browsers cache after making a change to either
the playlist.xml file and/or your HTML page, and / or uploading a modified file
so that your browser knows to retrieve the latest version of the files.
