Last.wp

Last.wp is a WordPress widget that shows your guests what you've been listening to on Last.fm, via a jQuery plugin!

Do I absolutly need to get an API key?

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.

What happens if the Guest doesn't have Javascript enabled?

If your guests are so afraid of Javascript that they turn it off, they'd be horrified at your musical taste! Just kidding. There is a message informing them that widget doesn't show without Javascript being enabled.

The album names don't come up! Help!?!

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.

How come the most songs I can show is 5?

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 ;)

My music is fine, but I don't see album artwork :(

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.)

Can I customize how it looks?

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 the images!

I love the plugin, How can I ever thank you?

Just tweet @kylehotchkiss and say so! And thank the fellows at Engage Interactive too! I would love to hear that people are using it.
