How to embed a Soundcloud file

Adding audio to your blog content is a fantastic way to give your digital content dimension and stimulate the senses. Including a Soundcloud file, such as the ones in this post, is one way to add multimedia and engage your audience.

STEP ONE

Embedding a Soundcloud file into your WordPress.com blog post is super easy!

Firstly, record your audio using the Sound cloud software, or find another user’s audio file that you’d like to embed in your blog content. Copy the URL of the file (see example below.)

STEP TWO

Open your WordPress dashboard and open the blog post you wish to embed the media (or start a new post.)

Paste the URL onto a line of its own. Make sure it is plain text and not a hyperlink. Hit return.

STEP THREE

Publish your post and you should now have a fully interactive audio file embedded into your content.
