Using 'Serif PagePlus 10' I have created a simple 'site' to use for teaching purposes on our school intranet. The pages work fine except when I link a sound to a picture - once the picture is clicked on, the 'MusicMatch Jukebox' software loads and then plays the sound. Obviously, I just want the '.wav' file to play immediately. I guess I am doing something very basic wrong but would be grateful if someone could enlighten me!
Cheers

Thanks for reply. Now when I click on object with sound link in the browser, a box opens asking 'Do you want to save this file?' It also states that the 'file type' is unknown (it is definitely a 'wav' file). Any other suggestions, please.
Thank you.

Have now managed to get sound working, but when object linked to sound is clicked on, the windows 'sound recorder' box opens and you have to click 'play'. I want the sound to play immediately after the click.

Sound is tricky, not supported by every borwser the same way and the link will always prompt the user to open, or save it. (the only way it wont ask them is if they have specified to "always perform this action" in the media type when asked for the first time the link s clicked, but that is a user setting, not server side soy ou cant control that)

This can be accomplished with flash.
