How to embed a Soundcloud player?

I've tried to avoid starting a thread for this, but I've been looking around struggling to figure this out, and I'm at a loss.

So in short. Can someone please explain to me how to embed my Soundcloud songs as a player, like so many of you have already in your signatures and posts?

I'll appreciate all the help I can get at this point.

Thanks

Not done it before so I'm about to try it:

Loading SoundCloud…


Yep, that worked I think!

1. Go to SoundCloud and click SHARE on the track you want to share.

2. Copy the link from "Get the link:" box.

3. Click "POST REPLY" below on the thread you want to share your song in.

4. Click the orange SoundCloud button in the toolbar.

5. Paste the link between the 2 SOUNDCLOUD tags.

6. Done.

Ok, I'm trying it, but it's not working for me yet.

Are you referring to the "Embed Code" link, by "edit your widget"?

Also I don't see an orange soundcould button, probably because I don't see a "toolbar" anywhere?

Sorry I'm new to SC, and am just learning how to use it, so I apologize for my ignorance.

No, that's not it. Use the link from the box above that one, labelled "Get the link:".

Then paste it here, select it and then click that SoundCloud button. That should work.

Or type {SOUNDCLOUD}http://soundcloud.com/massivesoundcanada/organik-1{/SOUNDCLOUD}

but replace the { and } with square brackets.

Like this:

Loading SoundCloud…

Thank you so much luna, I finally got it to work.

It was just a little confusing for me, as I never/can't see this SoundCloud "button". I'm still curious to know where this "button" might be. Show where should I look for this "button" in the future?

I find it quite a coincidence that your track is "Organiq" and mine is "Organik", pretty freaky if you ask me

But thank you for helping me out.

Yes! Just noticed the song names! Ha!

If you click the "POST REPLY" button below, does a box appear for you to type your post in?
And does that box have buttons for changing font and stuff at th top?
If so, the SoundCloud button is the orange one next to the YouTube one on the right.
Are you seeing that?

All it does is paste the SOUNCLOUD tags into the message, so it makes no difference if you type them in yourself or not.

Ah I see, I can't see the same things you can see by the sound of it! I'm new to SC too.

Above the "Embed Code" link, is there a one that says "Get the link:"? That's the one.

Try just typing the stuff as per my second suggestion above. That works.
