I would like to display the plugin HTML5 jQuery Audio Player 'centered' on the front page of my site. The plugin comes with shortcodes for posts and pages but my front(home page) only works with the 'set front page to posts' option.

I'm new to this coding business, so I guess I need to call the plugin from the index.php template file.

If the plugin has shortcodes, then you can use the function do_shortcode to display it within a theme file.

It'd be a case of:

<div class="align-center"><?php do_shortcode( "[audio-player title='Lorem Ipsum']" ); ?></div>

do_shortcode() normally works for this sort of thing; but the plugin referenced in the author's question does not. – magi182 Feb 3 '14 at 4:44
