PressPlay Lite WP Plugin is Live

I’ve recently developed a WordPress plugin called PressPlay Lite, which is now hosted on wordpress.org. PressPlay Lite offers music lovers the easiest way to play MP3s on their WordPress site. Simply insert a link to an MP3, and PressPlay Lite will automatically prepend a play/pause button. PressPlay Lite is powered by an extremely slimmed-down version SoundManager 2 (http://shillmania.com/projects/soundmanager2). The simplicity of PressPlay Lite empowers end-users to manage their own audio and rest assured that their guests can listen from any browser on any device.

I have used it on several sites, including my personal music site.

If you’re looking for thee simplest, cleanest, most-flexible way to play music on a WordPress site, please give this plugin a shot. And if you end up liking it – why not make it official? Please submit a rating & review on wordpress.org. Thanks!

Lanexa.net was pleased to be part of the Merchant Round Table along with Deering Banjo Company at the the x.commerce event in San Francisco, October 2011.

Overview
X.commerce is a commerce platform that enables communication between commerce capabilities–plugins that address some aspect of the marketplace.

There is basically no limit on what developers might address via capabilities; if developers and merchants can conceive of opportunities and introduce capabilities, they stand to benefit financially and the marketplace benefits from the new opportunities. This rich ecosystem increases in choices and opportunities for developers, merchants and consumers.

Mobile, local, social and digital trends transform our shopping and selling experiences. Commerce providers deliver a rich variety of capabilities and experiences. Merchants would greatly benefit from leveraging these capabilities; they could sell more effectively and increase customer loyalty. Developers are eager to leverage these capabilities, ready to build innovative solutions for merchants and consumers.

Using an open environment, X.commerce offers the fundamental technologies needed for end-to-end commerce – shopping carts, payment services, inventory management, marketplace integration, SEO, tax guidance and more, all in one location.
