Add slick looking Amazon MP3 widgets to your blog posts in a brain-dead simple way! Just say [mp3] to add an MP3 widget anywhere on your blog.

How do I change the size of my MP3 widget?

You can set 'height' and 'width' parameters to resize your widget. For e.g., to get a 250x250 widget, I would do something like this:<br/><br/> [mp3 width="250" height="250"] <br/><br/> Valid combinations of Width x Height are: 250 x 250, 336 x 280, 120 x 300, 160 x 300, 125 x 125, 120 x 90, 234 x 60

What is the 'shuffle_tracks' parameter?

Sometimes you want your user to see a different set of tracks each time the widget is rendered. Setting 'shuffle_tracks="True"' ensures that the items in your mp3 widget are shuffled before they're presented to the user.

What are 'browse nodes' and Where can I get all the Amazon MP3 browse nodes?

Browse Node is a number value that Amazon uses to identify a music genre. For eg, the browse_node value for the Pop genre is 324608011. You can get the list of BrowseNode values from here: http://www.browsenodes.com/node-324382011.html . Click on a genre name on that page to drill down to the sub-genres. Here is a list of the popular genres and (browse_nodes): Alternative Rock (324384011) Blues (324396011) Broadway & Vocalists (324409011) Children's Music (324414011) Christian & Gospel (324420011) Classic Rock (324431011) Classical (324442011) Country (324492011) Dance & DJ (324504011) Folk (324519011) Hard Rock & Metal (324527011) International (324537011)

Jazz (324552011) Latin Music (324570011) Miscellaneous (324577011) New Age (324586011) Opera & Vocal (324591011) Pop (324608011) R&B (324621011) Rap & Hip-Hop (324633011) Rock (324645011) Soundtracks (324660011)

Ok, one FINAL question before I'm sold. I love the MP3 widget. Any plans on doing this for other Amazon widgets on http://widgets.amazon.com/?

Checkout the WP Carousel widget here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-amazon-carousel/ . If you want the Slideshow widget, My Favorites or Search widget, drop me a line at dogbertq8@gmail.com and I'll build another plugin for those widgets.
