A. Introduction

1. In Chapter 3, you learned how to create standard pages for your website. In Chapter 6, you learned how to add media items to your Media Library and create playlists.

2. We will now look at ways to insert media on a standard website page.

3. For best website appearance and performance, multiple media items should not be inserted as separate items on a single page.

a) To insert multiple media items on a single page, first create a playlist of the media items (see Chapter 6, Section D), then insert the playlist on the page.

4. Media items may be inserted on website pages and removed from website pages.

5. The same media item may be inserted on more than one website page.

6. Removing a media item from a website page does not remove it from the Media Library.
