fmTuner

fmTuner displays recent, top, or loved Last.fm tracks in a customizable format.

How does fmTuner work?

fmTuner pulls your latest tracks from Last.fm according to the settings page in the WordPress administration area. Tracks get pulled from Last.fm when a visitor comes to your site, and are then cached for future visits. If the cache has expired (that is, the cache's age has passed the Update Frequency you've chosen), it gets pulled again, and your page is updated. Track information is displayed using HTML and fmTuner Tags, also in settings page.

What are fmTuner Tags?

fmTuner tags are simple placeholders that can be sprinkled among HTML to customize the album display format used for each track. Tags can be used more than once, or completely left out, depending on your preferences. A simple example is provided when you install fmTuner, so you won't be left in the dark if you have even basic HTML knowledge.

  • [::album::] Album name (only available for Recent tracks)
  • [::artist::] Artist name
  • [::image::] Album artwork address (usually around 120×120 pixels in size, but may not be perfectly square)
  • [::number::] Track number within the fmTuner set (for a numbered list)
  • [::title::] Track title
  • [::url::] Last.fm track address

Using CSS and JavaScript, you can do even more, limited only by your skills and imagination. See this tutorial for details on how to make albums look gorgeous with transparent overlay images and a little CSS.

Can I customize the HTML around the displayed tracks?

Absolutely! While the customizable Display Format and fmTuner Tags are used for each track, you can place any additional HTML around the <?php if(function_exists('fmtuner')) { fmtuner(); } ?> call.

How many tracks can I display?

The number of tracks to be displayed can be set in the fmTuner Settings page in the WordPress administration area. Between 1 and 10 is recommended, just to keep things looking sane.
