Hi Liz,

We have the details on the FAQ's page for building your site - question 18.

The general procedure for embedding third party objects is as follows:

1. At the third party web site generate the code for your object, then select and copy the code.

2. Return to your Class Creator web site and enter edit mode for the page on which you wish to embed the object.

3. Click your mouse on the exact location on your page where you wish for the embedded object to appear.

4. Click the "Source" button to toggle over to source code view (the Source button is located at the upper left corner of your editor).

5. Paste the code that you previously copied in Step #1.

6. Click the "Source" button again to toggle back to design view. Note: You will not see the third party embedded object in the Class Creator editor.

7. Save you page.

8. Preview your page live. You will now see the embedded object on your page. If you do not, try pressing "reload" or "refresh" on your browser.

NOTE ABOUT THE SIZE OF PLAYLIST.COM PLAYLISTS AND OTHER EMBEDDED OBJECTS: Most embedded objects will fit fine on any sub pages of your web site, however, your home page is divided into two columns and embedded objects that are too large will "blow out" the formatting of your home page and/or cross over other elements on the right side of your page. If you put an embedded object on your home page or Announcement Board do not use objects over 350 pixels wide. If you are embedding Playlists (default width 435) you can easily change the size of your embedded player by following these steps:

After pasting your source code, make sure you identify and change all 4 widths to 350 (various browser versions have different methods of embedding an object on your page, so there are 4 separate instances of the width in the code to accommodate all of them). You can use a number slightly larger than 350 depending on the design you are using if you wish — feel free to experiment. Then save your page.
Your Playlist Player will now fit perfectly on your home page without interfering with the formatting.
