Stratus 2 Guides

How to setup Stratus on popular blogging platforms.

Wordpress

1. Install the WordPress plugin Stratus which adds an admin interface for setting up the player, by searching for "stratus" in Plugins > Add New within your WordPress admin interface.

Alternatively, you can also download the plugin as a zip file from the official WordPress Plugin Directory: Extract it and upload the extracted folder to the plugins folder inside your wp-contents folder.

  1. 2. Once installed, go activate the plugin on the "Plugins" page in your WordPress admin panel.
  2. 3. When activated, click "Settings" and on the Stratus plugin listing on the "Plugins" page and define your settings.

Tumblr

  1. 1. Login to Tumblr.com and click Customize.
  2. 2. Next, click "Edit HTML" in the left column.
  3. 3. Finally, insert the following code right before the closing </body> tag:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://stratus.sc/stratus.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  $(document).ready(function(){
    $stratus({
      links: 'http://soundcloud.com/foofighters/sets/wasting-light'
    });
  });
</script>

This is where you can change the configuration as you like.

If you already have another script in your header that includes jQuery, you can remove the jQuery tag in this code snippet. Just remember to then place this after that already existing jQuery script.

Blogger

  1. 1. Log in to Blogger.com, and click the “Layout” button next to the blog that you want to modify.
  2. 2. Click “Edit HTML” at the top.
  3. 3. Finally, insert the following code inside the <head> section of your HTML.
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://stratus.sc/stratus.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  $(document).ready(function(){
    $stratus({
      links: 'http://soundcloud.com/foofighters/sets/wasting-light'
    });
  });
</script>
