RPS WordPress Plugin

I’ve completely rewritten the plugin after 8 years, because the code was targeting PHP4 platforms and now it should work with all PHP5+ versions.

Still does the same thing: Its a widget plugin which collects data from Audioscrobbler web services and gets your last listened tracks and their album images.

Download : You can get the latest release here :

Then just activate the plugin, go to Design-Widgets, add the widget where you want, write the username and widget title in the settings and save. That’s all.

Current Version : 2.0.0

Demo : You can see a working example in the right sidebar.

  1. Please permit me to ask a related question: I’m looking for a WordPress plugin that will run once a day and automatically create a blog entry listing the songs I’ve listened to in the last 24 hours. Do you know of such a plugin? Thanks!

  2. Hi Taha. Nope it doesn’t work in other themes either. Basically what I’ve done is – downloaded the program, uploaded it, activated, put it in my widgets, edited the source and then in the widget box it’s come up with the above error.

    In the actual web

  3. When I install the plugin, add it to my widget list and then enter my username I get this error in the widget box: “ RPS%END_OF_TITLE%” and nothing displays on the homepage.

    I have tried deactivating and reinstalling. Doesn’t work.

  4. Yep, it’s solved now 🙂 – works very nice. Now, that I can use the plugin, I already have some ideas for new features, if you don’t mind 😉

    These are my suggestions:

    – option to disable the stylesheet at all. That way I could have the styles in my l

    Eklenti etkinleştirilemedi, çünkü önlenemeyen bir hataya sebep oldu.

  6. Hi there! I have exactly the same problem – “This username does not exist, or the feed service is down”. Would love to see a new version of the plugin that works on my blog like the other do – because your widget looks the best!

  7. @Kyotoweb: I don’t know what causes this error. Maybe it’s the same error with hosts which don’t support file_get_contents. In next release I will add a different get function. Tomorrow maybe.

    @jocuri: Thanks for using it.

  8. Well, I finally managed to by editing the plug-in himself 😉 Putting all the settings to false was still showing my name & status ( User ) so I deleted it from the root 😉
    Thanks again for your plugin !

  9. Hi 🙂
    First, I would like to thank you for such a great plug-in 😉 It’s user-friendly and it works nice.
    I just wanted to know if it’s possible to remove the “profile” part of your plugin ? ’cause I just want to show the last played song, and not neces

  10. Well thank you for your feedback. But how can a web server don’t support file_get_contents 🙂 some hosts don’t support cURL and some dont support file_get_contents. I think i should add support of both systems. Thanks.

  11. I love this plugin but for some reason it is not formatting right at all in my sidebar! I’m still very new to WP so I’m clueless as to how it can be repaired. Any help would be great. Thanks!

  12. Whenever I add the widget, after putting in my username as-is, the result on my blog is:

    This username does not exist, or the feed service is down..

    Another plugin is working fine (therefore reading the feed), and I’ve been trying t

  13. This is a great plugin, very well done! I just have one complaint…a plugin title or song/artist title that has an apostrophe shows up like this:

    Ex. What I’/m Listening To
    Old 97’/s

    This also causes the album art to not show up if the song title

  14. Hi, I really like this widget, it gives away the feeling of communication.

    I have some questions & suggestions tough.

    1) It would be nice if the widget would download artist images when there is no album cover availible. That would be very usefu

  15. @Elizabeth: Ok. This happens when your feed is empty or includes only one song played. I’m going to fix it right now. When it’s finished, you can update your plugin from wordpress directory. Thanks.

  16. @Elizabeth: What’s your web page address? And if you can edit lastfm.php, please try to change :
    if(!is_object($feed)) on line 61

  17. Hi!
    I really like this plugin! I installed it yesterday and it worked fine. Today, I looked at my page and where the plugin should be I got this message:
