If you prefer to have more control over who can share your radio station in this way, leave the Show Embed button unchecked in the Radio Page Settings pane.
Show Album Cover Art - In the bottom left corner of the Radio Page, you have the option to show the cover art from the album of the current song. The song title and artist metadata is compared to an album art database. To ensure that the most appropriate album art is displayed, make sure that your track metadata is complete. Occasionally mismatched album art might occur. You have the option to opt out of the Cover Art matching service by leaving the checkbox unchecked.
Navigation Bar Style - You can choose between a dark colour or light colour Navigation Bar. Depending on your Station logo and Station background, you might find that one style of Navigation Bar looks better than the other. The change is purely cosmetic. The dark style Navigation Bar is shown on the left. The light colour Navigation bar is shown on the right. The RADIO text of the default station logo will automatically adjust according to your Navigation Bar style choice.
Radio Page Colour Scheme - You can change the accent colour of your Radio Page to better match your logo or background. Your choice of colours: orange, coral, green, blue or aquamarine. (pictured below). You will see the accent colour in the Navigation Bar, Schedule tab and Podcasts tab.
Don’t forget to click the SAVE button at the top or bottom of the Radio Page Settings Pane. If you have your Radio Page opened in a separate tab, you can reload the page to see your saved changes.
