Last.wp is a WordPress widget that shows your guests what you've been listening to on Last.fm, via a jQuery plugin!
As of right now, yes. The reason being that Last.fm requries you to select the type of site the plugin will be used on. (Personal, Commercial, etc.) and if I were to just place mine in everybodies site, One site could be violating the API ToS of Last.fm, and they could disable that key thus disabling everybodies fun. =( So the best way to go about doing this is to make each person (Read: You can use this API on muliple widgets, and maybe even multiple applications.) use their own key, that way one person violating the ToS won't harm many people. Luckily, getting an api key is easy, easy.
Yeah, this one is tough. I don't know what the deal is with these album names randomly showing and not. It may have to deal with how the songs were scrobbled or that the API is returning them right.
After people have just about passed out in terror of your musical taste, They won't be conscious enough to see the rest! ;) If they want to see more, they can click the "See more on Last.fm" link ;)
Sorry bud - this is all Last.fm, they do have some bad tags on there ya know. If your tags are off in your music application this could happen too! (I do recommend legal music, it typically has proper tags to start.)
Of course you can, and make it look super epic for your blog, but it took a while of playing with CSS to make the album art come up nicely! Just edit the
lastwp.css file, or maybe even poke around at
Just tweet @kylehotchkiss and say so! And thank the fellows at Engage Interactive too! I would love to hear that people are using it.
