    And we have audio files attached to it that have a slick player

    where someone can just, you know, click, play, listen, skip around on the songs.

    Sweet. But we need to be able to find those
  • 0:25
    so that people can listen to them, right?

    So in this lesson, we're going to use views to create a listing page
  • 0:32
    for our albums and singles and basically all the music
  • 0:35
    that the bands created will be on this one page nicely organized.
  • 0:39
    And then we also want to create a block that we can put on the home page
  • 0:44
    so when someone gets to the home page and they just want to listen to music,
  • 0:47
    they'll be like boom, here. Click this image and get to all of the music that's on there.

Music Listing View


In this lesson we already have albums and a nice player all set up, now we just need to make them easy to find and play. We're going to use the clone feature of the Views module to create a music listing page and then get a music block on the home page, next to the Photos block we already have. Using Views' clone feature will make this a pretty quick process for us.
