SoundCloud Shortcode

Description

This plugin converts all SoundCloud Shortcodes into embeddable SoundCloud players. It works for any SoundCloud track, playlist, user, or group. Once you install this plugin, it works for any of your blog posts.

A simple example:

[soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/forss/flickermood[/soundcloud]

More Options

SoundCloud Shortcodes support these optional parameters:

  • width
  • height
  • params

The params parameter passes additional options to the SoundCloud embeddable player. You can find a full list on the SoundCloud Developers pages: http://developers.soundcloud.com/docs/widget

An example of a track that starts playing automatically and won’t show any comments:

[soundcloud params="auto_play=true&show_comments=false"]http://soundcloud.com/forss/flickermood[/soundcloud]

Installation

  1. Upload soundcloud-shortcode to your plug-in directory or install it from the WordPress Plug-in Repository
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
