Sample article with MP3 sound file
How to include a file (audio, video or other) in your article.

Posted Wednesday, March 2, 2005

Here is how to include a sound or video file (or any other file) in your JAM article:

  1. Create a new article and select 'Download' as the article type in the Article Content section.
  2. Click on Browse and locate the file you wish to use.
  3. Give it a name (in the 'Article title' section) and a brief description including file type and size (in the Description Text section).
  4. Select 'About JAM>Downloads' as the Article Section.
  5. Click Save.
Once this special 'download' article has been published you can include a link like this to it in your other normal articles.

It is expected that later versions of Big Medium will have a more elegant way of including multimedia elements in your articles.
