Media questions

You are here

I'm a bit mystified by how media works in Hymnary. The wiki seems to offer little advice beyond some cryptic instructions that seem to assume other knowledge.

On the "Edit Media" page, what does the "Embed" option do? Also, what options change the media featured at the head of the text authority page? I uploaded a PDF media file for a hymn, and the featured sheet music on the text authority page disappeared. (If I recall correctly, it had shown an image with a link to a PDF sourced from The Cyber Hymnal.)

Thanks for any enlightenment you can offer.

The embed option will embed the media in the page so that a user does not need to click on the link to access the media. It works for midi files but not for PDFs The sheet music on the authority page is automatically generated. The one that is there now is from the Timeless Truths hymnal, so I think it may come from the first added PDF. All the media for the hymn is linked on the text or tune authority pages, just above the page scans.
