FAQ

How much does it cost?

Nothing!

  • The VibeDeck service is free and charges no fees. You set the price and you keep all the money.

  • The WP-VibeDeck plugin is free.

  • The only fees you will incur are the PayPal transaction fees when someone makes a purchase.

What are all the shortcode parameters?

[vibedeck artist=”ARTIST_NAME” album=”ALBUM_NUMBER” width=”###” height=”###” style=”STYLE”]

  • ARTIST_NAME is the VibeDeck artist name. For example, artist="my-artist-name"

  • ALBUM_NUMBER will be a number. For example, album="55402"

  • width and height are numbers, given without units. For example, width="500"

  • STYLE is the desired player style, either “default” or “artwork”. If not specified, “default” is used.

How do I change the style, colors, etc of the player?

The player is generated by VibeDeck and is styled through that account.  The <div> surrounding the VibeDeck uses the vibedeck-wrapper class and can receive minimal styling like border and float.

<style> 
    /* This Will float the VibeDeck to the left and give it an orange border. */
    .vibedeck-wrapper { border:10px solid #F90; float: left; } 

    /* This won't do anything because the font is controlled within the VibeDeck account. */
    .vibedeck-wrapper { font-size:24px; }
</style>
What if I have more than one album?

VibeDeck will allow you to create multiple albums, each with a unique album number. Save your artist name on the plugin settings, and just specifiy the album number for the shortcode: [vibedeck album="####"]

What if my album has a lot of tracks and doesn’t fit in the player window?

Use the height parameter in the shortcode: [vibedeck height="900"] or some other big number.

Can I have more than one player on a screen?

Sure, you can have multiple players on a page, in a post, or have one player in each post and list them all in an archive. Multiple sidebar widgets are also allowed.
