Spotify Play Button for WordPress


Spotify Play Button easily added to post or page for instant play of album, playlist or song.

Album example: [spotifyplaybutton play=”spotify:album:7JggdVIipgSShK1uk7N1hP”]

Playlist example: [spotifyplaybutton play=”spotify:user:jonk:playlist:65ujzBs6WTdWDIr17dOXUm”]

Song example: [spotifyplaybutton play=”spotify:track:2qntSA2cwerjTduHPuKnW5″]

You don’t have to remember these shortcodes since there is a button in the admin page that let’s you add a Spotify Play Button directly.

Simply right click on album, playlist or song in Spotify and click “Share” and then click “URI”. Either paste that together with the shortcode above or just use the admin button and paste the URI there.

You can set the style for your Spotify Play Buttons on the “Spotify Play Button Settings” page under the “Settings” menu (http://YOURBLOG/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=spotifyplaybutton_settings).

You can also add attributes to customize a single Spotify Play Button:

  1. view

  2. size

  3. sizetype

  4. theme

  5. link

All of these will override the settings in “Spotify Play Button Settings” for the Spotify Play Button and they are all optional.

[spotifyplaybutton play=”spotify:user:jonk:playlist:65ujzBs6WTdWDIr17dOXUm” view=”coverart” size=”0″ sizetype=”big” theme=”white”]

All I needed for my website was a simple, inexpensive Spotify Play Button. Using the button installed by this plugin at the top of my edit page, everything worked perfectly! The results were better than expected and even provided a playlist for all the tracks in the album.
