[resolved] Bandcamp Shortcode Not Working (5 posts)

    Other shortcodes seem to work fine...youtube, vimeo, soundcloud. But the bandcamp shortcode does not. All that shows up is the shortcode in plain text. Example, all you see is this in the post

    [bandcamp album=3619628392  bgcol=FFFFFF linkcol=4285BB size=venti]

    And since I have Contributors, they cannot use HTML. And if the bandcamp shortcode doesn't work, they can't use the embed code.

    thanks for any help :)

    The Jetpack shortcodes don't include Bandcamp:


    You could try this plugin, but it hasn't been updated in a while:


    I'll make the suggestion to include it in a future Jetpack release, but I can't make any promises. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Ah I must have confused it with this: http://en.support.wordpress.com/audio/bandcamp/ :(

    Unfortunately having issues with the plug-in too as I can't directly get the ID of an album/track from a bandcamp (have to select the embed code every time and then remove, and copy and paste...and it's not placed anywhere else on the page), quite an inconvenience and is a little confusing, so I removed it. Was hoping to stick to JetPack (and have as little plug-ins as possible.)

    Thanks for the response, hope to see it added in very soon. :)

    Hi! Just wanted to give you an update that we're hoping to include the shortcode soon, it was added here:


    So hopefully it'll be in the next release. Thanks again for the suggestion!
