8tracks Radio: Official Shortcode Plugin

Allows you to embed mixtapes from 8tracks.com via a shortcode.

Usage

Some useful syntax examples:

  1. A Specific Mix [8tracks url=""]
  2. A Specific DJ [8tracks dj="some username"]
  3. A Specific Collection [8tracks smart_id="collection url"]
  4. A Collection of Mixes similar to the one you provide [8tracks similar=""]
  5. Random Collection from Tags [8tracks tags="some, tags, here"]
  6. Random Collection using WP Category Name(s) as Tags [8tracks usecat="yes"]
  7. Random Collection by Artist [8tracks artist="some artist"]
  8. Random Collection from 8tracks' Charts [8tracks sort="recent, hot, popular"]

Parameters:

You can also add the 'height', 'width', 'flash', 'playops', 'artist', 'dj', 'similar', 'sort', 'smart_id', 'usecat', 'usetags', and 'tags' parameters to the shortcode. (There's a help system in the visual editor button. I'd recommend looking there for useful examples.)

This would look like:

[8tracks url="" height="" width="" playops="" flash="" tags="" artist="" dj="" sort="" smart_id=""]

Height and Width are optional, and default to 250 and 300 respectively. Height and Width for Collections defaults to 500 and 500. Width for widgets is 100%.

Flash allows you to choose whether you want to use the new HTML5 player (default setting), or whether you'd like to stick with Flash. To do this, add flash="yes" into your shortcode.

Playops is optional, and can be set to 'shuffle', 'autoplay', or 'shuffle+autoplay'.
These shuffle your mix, autostart your mix, or both.

Note about shuffle: Shuffle is done for each user - on first play - by 8tracks.  
It's a randomized mix, but you can still exit and resume where you were.

NOTE: url cannot be used in conjunction with tags, artist, dj, or smart_id. This should be fairly straightforward, as these allow you to search for sets of mixes, and url specifies a particular mix.
