WordPress Last.fm Charts

Description

Using the Last.fm API, this is a WordPress plugin
that provides a shortcode that will display charts
of your Last.fm music-listening data. This plugin uses the Easy Chart Builder plugin by dyerware to create charts, so
you will need to install and activate that plugin first.

Download the latest version of the plugin or view the source code.

Usage

In a post or page, use the [wp_lastfm_charts_top_artists] or [wp_lastfm_charts_top_tracks] shortcode. Specify the user_name parameter, using your Last.fm user name. Specify a time range with the period parameter, e.g., 12month. Specify a chart type with chart_type, e.g., horizbar or pie.

Some examples:

[wp_lastfm_charts_top_artists user_name="cheshire137" period="12month" chart_type="horizbar"]

[wp_lastfm_charts_top_artists user_name="cheshire137" period="12month" chart_type="pie"]

[wp_lastfm_charts_top_tracks user_name="cheshire137" period="12month" chart_type="horizbar"]

[wp_lastfm_charts_top_tracks user_name="cheshire137" period="12month" chart_type="pie"]

Other parameters include chart_color, chart_fade_color, width, height,
colors, limit, title, data_table_css, and image_alt.

chart_color and `chart_fade_color` refer to the background color of the chart

and should be hex color codes without the #. They default to FFFFFF (white).

limit refers to the number of artists or tracks to display in the chart. It

defaults to 12.

colors should be a comma-separated list of hex color codes without the #.

period should be one of `overall`, `7day`, `1month`, `3month`, `6month`, or
12month.
