  • Just wanted to let everybody know I’ve finished my new plugin called WP iTunes…it will allow you to display the currently playing song on your iTunes on your WordPress blog…You can see it running on the front page of my site, so download it, mess around with it, and let me know if you like it or have any questions…

  • Great. Im going to try this out. Let you know how it works for me.

    How does the ITUNES BLOGGER WORK? I tried to open it and it give me this error. Im on Windows XP.
    The application failed to intitialize properly.

    I’m not sure what would be wrong with iTunesBlogger…it has always worked ok for me…i would suggest e-mailing the developers or leaving a question on their site…

    Does anyone know of a an application like ITUNES BLOGGER for Mac OS X?

    Recent tunes allows you to upload loads of data in relation to what you’re playing, although what you do with it is up to you.

    Recent Tunes
    Recent Tunes stores a list of recently played iTunes songs in your menu bar for quick access. Choosing a recently played tune from the list immediately plays the song in iTunes. Version 2.0 adds the ability to upload files to your Web server (via FTP, SSH1, or SSH 2) or to a database (via HTTP GET) – perfect for bloggers looking to post a list of their Recent Tunes online!

    hesed: for the mac i use nowplaying – http://www.big.or.jp/~crane/soft/nowPlaying/ – uploads a lovely PNG

    hesed: without looking at it, I would guess Recent tunes would be your best choice. iTunesBlogger simply makes a GET request to your site, and it looks like Recent tunes would allow you to do the same thing. However, I don’t have a Mac, so you would be on your own figuring it out to work with WP iTunes. Good luck with this and let us know how it goes.

    BTW, my CG-WhatTunes plugin has been discussed numerous times along with setting up the associated bloggers for both platforms. I used HTTP GET for WT as it is lower overhead, and WT then ties in with CG-Amazon to display cover art (when there’s a match — and then no bandwidth hit to you) plus a link to Amazon to purchase.
    … and for those who don’t want to search, yes, Recent Tunes is the best Mac equivalent… 😉

    I get this error where my songs should appear on the page:
    Database error: [Table ‘okpjcom_new.wp_itunes’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT * FROM wp_itunes ORDER BY added_date DESC LIMIT 1
    I installed WP iTunes once and it worked, but I had to reinstall WordPress. I had cleared out all the WordPress files from the database, and now I get this error whenever I try to use the wp itunes plugin. The plugin doesn’t seem to make the wp itunes file in the database.
    Any solutions? Thanks

    I am recieving this error when I try to run the hack.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_get_itunes() in /home/studioki/public_html/blog/wp-sidebar.php on line 19

    In the wp-sidebar.php on line 19 is where I placed <?php wp_get_itunes(3); ?> isn’t that how you call that function? A little lost right now, thanks.

    magoo, sounds like you haven’t activated the plugin in the admin…that is the only reason i can think of why you would get the undefined function error…

    Lucky33 – *excellent* site, really like the design. Best WP-based site I’ve seen

    When activating the plugin is it suppose to create a table in the database? If so mine is not creating a table. I have the plugin activated in the admin panel. :-/

    I have the same problem like OshKoshPoshJosh
    Database error: [Table ‘test_new.wp_itunes’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT * FROM wp_itunes ORDER BY added_date DESC LIMIT 1
    or
    Database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ” at line 1]
    SELECT * FROM wp_itunes ORDER BY added_date DESC LIMIT
    Solutions!?

    the table is created the first time iTunesBlogger posts a song to your blog…this is probably something i need to correct in the future…oshkoshposhjosh had a problem with the URL setting in iTunesBlogger, so it was not correctly posting any songs to his blog…i would start checking there
