Here’s how to add the Music block:
- Choose a location where you want to add your Music block and click the Add a block (+) Plus button.
- In the Block library, scroll down the list to the Music block (or use the search at the top of the menu to reach it faster) and click it.
- Click on the pre-designed Music block layout to add it to your page.
Customizing music block settings
You have several customization options for the Music block with the control pane. To activate its control pane, click anywhere on the block and then click the Block settings icon.
In the Layout tab, you can choose which elements should be displayed in the block. To hide a specific block element (for example, if you want to remove a button), remove the blue tick next to the element’s name.
In the Appearance tab, you can make the following changes:
- Block style: Change the color scheme of the block.
- Block spacing: Change the whitespaces on the top and bottom of the block.
- Media settings: Add a black & white filter to the video within this block.

Embedding the music
The best way to add an audio file to your website is by using a sound hosting platform, for example, SoundCloud or Mixcloud. Upload the file to the sound hosting platform and receive an HTML embed code or an URL (link). Copy the code or the URL and paste it to the respective tab in the Sitebuilder.
Here’s how to do this:
- Click the audio container to activate the control pane and click the iFrame settings icon.
- In the iFrame settings, choose the corresponding tab: Embed URL for links and Embed code for the code snippet you previously copied from the sound hosting platform.
- Paste the link or the code to the corresponding field and click Submit.
Your audio file will be added to the website right away.
You can edit buttons in your music block to lead to different pages on your website or to an external link. To edit buttons, follow the steps outlined here: Editing buttons.
