Quick Start

1. Download the Wimpy MP3 Player package.

If you haven't done so already, download Wimpy.



2. Unzip the package

When unzipping the package, be sure to keep the directory structure in-tact. Although it is not completely necessary, doing so will help keep things organized.

NOTE: Un-zipping the download package is generally handled through your operating system (Windows XP, Mac OS X), most of the latest operating systems ave "built in" un-zipping software, so all you should have to do is double click on the "zip" file that you just downloaded and move the enclosed files to a new folder. If your operating system does not have a built-in un-zip program, we recommend the following:
PC: WinZip
Mac: Stuffit


2. Install (upload)

The installation process is simply a matter of uploading the files to your website via FTP.

Create a new folder named "mp3s" on your web site. You are free to use any name for this new folder, be sure to use only alphanumeric characters, spaces and punctuation should not be used.

The new folder that you create will be referred to throughout the remainder of this documentation as the "Wimpy installation folder".



Upload all of the Wimpy files and folders to the newly created "mp3s" folder.


NOTE: *.* means all files, all folders.



NOTE: Click here If you're unfamiliar with FTP or creating new folders on your web site.

3. Configure

Open a web browser and navigate to the file name "basic_customizer.html"

By default, "Playlist Type" is set to "Automatic (PHP)."

If you see a file named "example" within the player, then you can proceed to adjust the settings within the Basic Customizer as needed. You can also proceed to upload MP3 files and create sub-folders within the WImpy installation folder. The newly uploaded MP3 files and newly created sub-folders will automatically appear within the player.

Copy and paste the resulting code from the "Source Code" text area into a web page on your site.

NOTE: If you do not see the "example" file in the player, set "Playlist Type" to Automatic (ASP). If this doesn't work, you'll have to either use an XML playlist or an embedded list of files. Use the droop-down menu to choose one of these settings.
