Last.fm Recently Played Tracks

Plugin to display recently played tracks from Last.fm for a user.

The Last.fm Recently Played Tracks widget is here to feel in the gap of old plugins and other plugins that just don't seem to work right anymore! When you search the WordPress plugins gallery, you'll notice that all of the Last.fm recently playing plugins seem to be at least one to two years old or have low reviews. That's why I took the time to whip up this widget.


If you upgraded to version 1.1.8 BEFORE 5:30PM CST on 10/7/2010, please delete and reinstall the plugin. There was a subversion error that caused the stylesheets to not be included in the WordPress download file. The issue has now been resolved.

Version 1.2.0

Version 1.2.0 fixes an XML issue that may occur when Last.fm provides invalid responses. Also fixed issue with incompatibility with Searchlight plugin.

Shortcode Support!

You can now display your latest tracks played anywhere you can insert a shortcode! All you have to do is put the shortcode [lastfm] where you want it to appear. You can set the options for it as well.

Shortcode Options
