Question

text on tabs


Hi Everybody! How can I change the tab icons on a track page so that for example instead of a download icon the word "download" is on the tab and similarly for "like" and "share" etc.

Hi Gina,

Thanks!

However, I was looking for information on how to put text on the "like" share" download" , "add to playlist" and "repost" tabs

For example this sound cloud user's track has the text on the icons

https://soundcloud.com/denishu/den-ishu-la-santanera-playa

whereas my sound cloud pages do not

Yes, and that's how they did it.

Edit the metadata for the track. See Gina's link above. Try it on one of your own tracks, and you'll see the linked text added.

Sorry guys. I'm probably not explaining the problem correctly. Under the comments box for a track there are 5 tabs. On some people's pages these tabs have the word that indicates their function in addition to the symbol. On my page I only have the symbols on the 5 tabs. I just want to know how to add the word/words that indicate the function of the icons on the tabs in addition to the symbol. Is there a way to do this in the metadata? I clicked on the metadata tab and the only options are for the "Buy" link.

Sorry, Tony Blake. I was mixing conversations with another post regarding the text of a "Subscribe" link. (I apparently need more sleep.)

Still, when I look at your track, I see text on the icons. With that said, the width of the browser window will change whether or not the text will display. The zoom level on the browser can affect this, too.

No problem. So let me get this right. When you look at my page https://soundcloud.com/tony-blake-1/tony-mix-6-260215 there is text on the 5 icons underneath the comments box. Is it text that says "Like" "Repost", "Add to Playlist", "Share" and "Download"? I tried both Safari and Firefox and all I see are the symbols on the icons when changing the width of the browser window.

Yup. Here are two slight variances in browser width to illustrate the point.

Thanks!! That's great! The text is there. I'm using Mavericks so it must be something to do with not having updated yet.

Cheers for that.

Thanks again,

Tony
