SoundCloud Is Gold

Browse through your soundcloud tracks, sets and favourites. Select and add tracks, sets or favourites to your posts. Live preview, easy.

I can't see my tracks?

  • Have you entered your real username? Your username is what you see in your soundcloud url when you click your name in soundcloud or view public profile (e.g http://soundcloud.com/anna-chocola ).
  • Bare in mind is that all tracks that are set as private on soundcloud won't appear.
  • Have you got other soundcloud plugin installed? That generally happen as you've been 'shopping around', disable them or even delete them and this if it works.

It's behaving strangely or working partially or I've check everything but it still doesn't work

Here's a simple method to track down incompatibilities with plugins and themes:

  • Disable all plugins
  • Enable 'soundcloud is gold' and check if it works (add a track to a post to be sure)
  • If it worked: enable the other plugins one by one and check if it breaks
  • If it didn't worked: enable the default Worpress theme and check if it works (add a track to a post to be sure).

Remenber that even if a plugin is popular, most of the plugins are badly coded or the developer didn't follow WordPress guidelines on plugin development. Therefor conflict happens. The method is useful not just for this plugin.

Can't play my tracks on my iphone, ipad or ipod?

Soundcloud has just released a html5 player. It's currently in it's beta version, which means that there might be bugs. Soundcloud is gold give you the option to use the html5 player but it's either flash all flash or all html5 for now.

How can I use the shortcode manually?

If for some reason you wish to use the shortcode manually, like for embeding someone else tracks, you can use:

[soundcloud id='10450254'] or [soundcloud user='t-m'] to always display the latest track

This will use your default setting of with, classes, colors, autoplay, comments. (Replace 10450254 with the track id you want to show)

If you wish to have more control here is an example:

[soundcloud id='10450254' comments='true' autoplay='false' playertype='Standard' width='100%' color='#005bff']

Can I request features?

Yes, you can. If asked nicely and the requests are sensibles, I almost always integrate them to new releases.

Can you help me?

Sometimes, I generally keep a eye on my plugin's forums and website's comments. Bear in mind that I've got a full time job and a life, so I can't always help straight away. I will not reply to people who obviously don't read the faqs or the forum or just say 'it doesn't work'.
