WavePlayer settings – located at the Settings –> WavePlayer page of the WordPress Admin area – define how to display a shortcode with no parameters provided other than the IDs of the audio tracks you want to included in that particular instance of the player, like the following one:

[ waveplayer ids="101,102,103" ]
The attachment IDs in the previous shortcode are a pure examplification. Every time you upload a new audio file to your Media Library, WordPress assigns a new ID to it. When you need to use a shortcode, you need to check first the ID of the audio attachments you want to include in that player.

Please consider that changing any of these settings will affect the way each instance with ANY missing parameter will be displayed on your website.

Player Options

In the first panel of the WavePlayer Settings you can define the default options for the autoplay, repeat_all and shuffle parameters. Whenever you insert an instance of the Waveplayer without providing any of these parameters, the instance will behave according to these settings.

In this panel you can also choose whether the WavePlayer will override the default audio and playlist shortcodes and if the playback will automatically jump for an instance to the following one at the end of each playlist.

This page is reserved to the definition of the palettes that you can select to easily define the colors of the elements. The 1-click Palette Generator is particularly useful to define a new random palette in just one click. A new palette generated with this tool can then be fine-tuned color by color, saved in the palette list and used as both the site-wide default palette for every player of the palette of a specific instance.

Any change to these settings are immediately reflected in the two players – one for light mode, one for dark mode – at the bottom of the page.

WooCommerce Integration


This page is divided into two sections. In the top one, you can select all the options regarding how WavePlayer will incorporate an instance of the player to your products, in both the Shop and Product pages.

The bottom one allows you to batch create products for the audio files you have already in your Media Library. You can create products for two different entities: singles and albums. When you upload a collection of audio files to the Media Library, WordPress extracts the information regarding each file from the ID3 tags. One of this information is the album of the track. If that information is present, WavePlayer will list all the albums your audio files belong to. When you create a product for an album, WavePlayer will automatically create a WooCommerce product with all the audio files belonging to that album listed as preview files.

Both batch processes create drafts of simple virtual downloadable products. Once the process has completed, you can review each product, adding the necessary downloadable files, and publish it.
