This plugin is a Skloogs Music development.
For the moment, you have to find these IDs as explained hereafter. I'll soon update the plugin so that you can enter directly your URL or shortname, but in the meantime you have to enter the corresponding IDs.
To find one ID, just visit your artist, label, fan, or venue page and check any of the red title links (Bio, New Releases, Artist Roster, About...). The link should end with a 5 or 6 digits number: that is your ID.
By default, your artist ID will be used in the widgets, and if it's missing the label ID will be, or your venue ID, or your fan ID, in this order.
In the next version of this plugin, you will have the ability to fill all available IDs and still be able to decide which corresponding widget to display (artist, venue, label...)
Regarding the store ID, the procedure is a bit trickier, unfortunately. You will have to go to your ReverbNation account, look for the Store Widget (in the Widgets section), click on "Get Widget" and inspect the "Embed code" display: at the third visible line you will see something like userId= followed by a 5 digits number and an ampersand (&) sign. The store ID is that 5 digits number.
I know this is a little inconvenient, but be patient: I'll ease things as soon as possible.
The plugin syntax is quite basic. Use
[reverb <widgets>] at the right place
you want to see the widget.
<widgets> parameter is a comma separated list of RN widgets and their
and possible options. The options are separated from the widget name by an
= character and from one another by the
character. Additionally, an option can take an argument after the
The widgets are:
The options are as follows:
Now some examples:
If I'd like a TuneWidget with autoplay and shuffle active and showing my buzz first,
this would be the syntax:
Now if I'd like a ShowsWidget with a bordeaux background, yellow text and a smart display,
Be careful not to mistakenly switch between options (
|) and shares (
The comma is used to separate different widgets. Note that having several widgets displayed
within the same tag can lead to their unexpected display (side-by-side, or one below the other...)
according to the stylesheet your blog is using.
For more clarity, you can also use a space instead of or in addition to the comma. e.g.: [reverb blogshows=bg:e0e0e0|tx:000000, videos, tunes=s:false|a:true]
If you get a frame with just the plugin's copyright, you probably did it wrong...
As a final note, please remember that only the tag is written to the WordPress DB, the presentation being made at the time the page is displayed to the users (or saved into the cache). So you'll always be able to re-edit your page/post to change the options.
To get support on the installation and/or use of this plugin, please comment on the plugin page. Do not send an email, because your problem can be someone else's problem too, and I cannot afford answering each one personally, except in the comments section of the plugin page. Thanks!
