Q: Could you create a link to play the gin an without opening a separate pop up page so that we can see the lyrics whilst listening to the ginan?
A: This is possible in the new heritage site:
- choose a ginan here:
- click on the text link in the right side column
- scroll to the bottom of the lyrics and click play,
The book will be uploaded to our book section like this:
To make it in this format, we need to add each chapter as a plain html page that uses only the following html codes:
<a> <em> <strong> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <b> <i> <pre> <hr> <p>
We can separately attach the pdf to each chapter's title page too.
There are two ways to see what's new.
Go to the main page: http://ismaili.net/heritage/home
1. Click on "Recent Posts" in the left menu, this will show you all new entries as they are added.
2. Click on "What's New" towards the top of the page. This will show you new postings with their posted date, separated by categories.
Enjoy Surfing Your Heritage!

Many users could not get the audio to play completely using the play buttons. Audio would cut-off.
The audio play buttons that were usually in the right-hand-side margin of texts such as ginans, geets, news events, Persons, etc.. Have been moved to below the main text of those pages, and replaced by an Audio play bar which takes more space, but is more reliable.
