Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The allEars widget shortcode takes a number of options. These options can be specified with the shortcode, or added as default for the whole site under Settings->allEars. The available options are: width: the width of the widget container, expressed in any acceptable CSS form. The minimum width should never be below 80px. maxwidth: the max-width of the widget container, expressed in any acceptable CSS form. height: the height of the widget container, expressed in any acceptable CSS form. style: CSS styles to assign to the widget container. class: CSS classes to assign to the widget container. widgetstyle: use a preset style for the widget. You can choose among: docked: (the default) the widget is placed on the page where the shortcode is located, with standard formatting. sticky-top: the widget is placed on the page where the shortcode is located, with standard formatting, but stays visible once the reader scrolls below that position. none: the widget is placed on the page where the shortcode is located, and no formatting is applied to it. This is useful if you need to use the style and/or class attributes to define your own widget layout. When you choose none, attributes width, maxwidth and height are also ignored.

You can use the [aetag sub], [aetag lang] and [aetag as] to control reading pronunciation. These shortcodes require one extra parameter, and they enclose the text they need to control. Examples [aetag sub “Colorado”]CO[/aetag]: read the word “Colorado”, but show the word “CO” on the webpage and in the allEars player text captions. [aetag as “verb”]attribute[/aetag]: use the “verb” form of the word “attribute” (different stress than the noun). The valid options for the parameter of [aetag as] are verb, past (for words that have different pronunciations in past tense) or alt (for words that have multiple pronunciations). [aetag lang “it”]Piazza Navona[/aetag]: pronounce the text in italian, regardless of the language of the rest of the post.
