Hello together,

in the beginning I would like to say that I'm amazed about the possibilities of Silverstripe. It offers a lot of very nice extensions and customizing the layout is managed in a very smart way.
I plan to move an existing site to the SS CMS and the only step that keeps me from launching is the implementation of .mp3 files to a page. After googling a few days I still have no precise idea of how to get the files in place.
I have added mp3 files successfully in the past as you can see on
I have managed to install swfObject, Data-Object-Manager and swfUpload but I must say I'm stuck now. Could someone please place a step-by step guide on how to get it working?
I'd like to use TinyMce, but when I try to insert files by using the flash-button I get the blue page as mentioned in other posts.

Thanks in advance

Yours J.

Yes, it's me again...

...sorry for self-replying and my bad english. By now after hours of trial and error I've got a solution. As soon as I'm sure of understanding how it works I will post my way to make it run. Maybe it helps people who got stuck in this, too. One thing I can say by now: This forum is also great!
