Jetpack Easy Playlists

Generate playlists automatically from mp3s attached to your post/page. Requires Jetpack.

How do I order the songs in the playlist?

Click on "Add Audio". Go to "Gallery". Drag and drop your mp3s into the order you want (it ignores images). The plugin goes by ascending order.

How do I change the title and artist info for a mp3?

Song title corresponds to the "Title" field, and song artist corresponds to the, um, "Caption" field (I know this makes not a ton of sense, but I'm working with what I'm given folks). WordPress makes a laughable guess as to the title of the mp3 when you upload it. I recommend you change this info as soon as you upload inside the post/page. You can also change this in the media library.

What about other audio formats than mp3?

Sorry, other audio formats aren't supported by Jetpack's player.

What about accessing the player options (color, size, etc)? Can I do that?

Yes! You can use any of those options. You can either use the janky pipe (|) method to connect everything like you're told to with the [audio] shortcode, or you can use proper attributes.


[jplaylist bgcolor="000000" lefticon="00ff00" righticon="FF0000" animation="no" loop="yes"]


[jplaylist bgcolor=000000|lefticon=00ff00|righticon=FF0000|animation=no|loop=yes]

Can I use attachments from a different page/post?

Sure. You use the "pid" attribute with a post/page id or permalink slug.


[jplaylist pid="173"] [jplaylist pid="software/jetpack-easy-playlists/"]

More details

How do I turn on "list mode?"

Use [jplaylist print="ol"] for an ordered list, [jplaylist print="ul"] for an unordered one.

How do I make my playlist have links?

[playlist linked="true"]

How do I turn on "random mode?"

Use [jplaylist random='true'] for random song ordering.

How do I add a pop-up button

Use [jplaylist external="true"] for a window with the dimensions 350x500. If you want to customize the dimensions, then use a comma seperated width and height, like [jplaylist external="600,800"]. The playlist window will use the title of your post/page. It will also be linked to your default stylesheet so you can make it pretty. I leave it to the user to suss out the page structure of the pop-up.

Can you support my favorite player WordPess player plugin xyz?

Maybe! You can talk to me about it at least.

I'm hitting an upload limit. Help!

Welp, that's nothing to do with the plugin or even WordPress. You can edit (or create) the php.ini file in your root directory to tweak this. Better yet, contact your host re: increasing your upload size.
