Core Publisher: Enabling the Persistent Player

There are three options to give your site visitors access to your digital audio stream:
  1. The Listen Live button in the Header
  2. The Triton Persistent Player
  3. The Persistent Player (non-Triton streams)
The Persistent Player allows your site visitors to play your stream in a player that displays on every page of your site that is not interrupted as they navigate to other pages of your site. The Persistent Player works across different devices and screen sizes with a consistent look and feel. The player is gray and displays the name of the stream along with now playing information from your Composer 2 schedule and playlists (where applicable).



The Persistent Player works with MP3 versions of your digital streams.

To enable the Persistent Player on your site:
  1. Go to the Configure Corepublisher link in your top gray/black admin bar.
  2. Select the Manage Player option in the Other Site Management Links section.
  3. Click on the Persistent Player box under Site Player, then click on the Save button.
  4. You will now see settings to customize your Persistent Player. Edit the Button Text that will display before your stream name in the player.
  5. Core Publisher will automatically pull the streaming information in your Streaming Specs tablequeue into the Stream Information fields. Verify that the Name of your stream is correct.
  6. Confirm that the streaming URL in the MP3 URL field is a direct link to the MP3 version of your stream.
  7. The UCS is tied to your Composer 2 account. If this field is blank, submit a support ticket to our Station Relations team so that we can add that ID for you.
  8. If you have multiple streams, click on the Add additional streams link to add a new stream.
  9. Click on the Save button to save your changes.
