  3. Taha Paksu says:

    thats because the server’s time is different from your hosting server’s time. There’s a box in the plugin’s configuration labeled “server time difference” so you can set the difference there, for example the song you are listening is displayin

    My songlist isn’t showing up correctly – it’s all jumbled up. Can anyone help?? I’m using WP 2.9.

    Thanks x

  6. Neal says:

    I can’t get the plugin to pull my song info. Do I have to scrobble from a local player or does it pull info from the online listening of Want to make sure I cover my bases. Plugin looks great though.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Taha Paksu says:

      what exists in your personal profile page as listened or listening is displayed in this plugin. the answer is both you are listening locally and submitted to and you listen on the radio should be displayed here. and if you didnt listen to

    Hello! I love your plugin, but have made one adjustment that you might like to add to the main version. In lastfm.php, I have adjusted my lastfm_datediff function to account for songs that are currently being listened to. These songs will have a $dateD

    i get these result from your code:

    “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CLASS in /users/leiter/www/wordpress/test.php on line 2”

    these are the phpinfo results:
    Simplexml support enabled
    Revision $Revision:

  13. felix says:


    these are my the phpmyinfo from my hoster, which is

    XML Support active
    XML Namespace Support active
    libxml2 Version 2.6.32
    XML-reader &-writer active
    DOM/XML enabled
    libXML support active
    libXML Version 2.6.32

    • Taha Paksu says:

      ok. lets try this. open an empty php file on your server and try this code :

      include_once “simplexml.class.php”;
      $sx = new simplexml;
      $results = $sx->xml_load_file(“”)

  14. Taha Paksu says:

    OK. The problem is about your server. Your username doesn’t cause any problems. Check if your server supports the standart PHP XML extension.

    Create a php file and write this inside it:

    < ?php echo phpinfo();?>

    then upload it to your host and run

  16. Taha Paksu says:

    @clay: you need to play with the lastfm.css file to adjust the width,height etc.. and for the badge thing, open lastfm.php and near the end you should see;

    $options = array(
    ‘title’ => ‘ RPS’,
    ‘size’ => 10,
    ‘serversec’ => 0,

  17. clay says:

    Hello, I’m trying to get the plugin integrated into my about page. My theme does not support widgets, and I’ve got the plugin on the page in the place where I want it, but the spacing and horizontal rules seem off. Can you point me in the right direction

  18. Aditya says:

    Apologies Taha. I was messing around with another plugin at the same time.
    Can you tell me how can I display the album art inline without the text, and how I can hide my profile information? Seems a bit complicated from the looks of it. All I want to sho

  19. Taha Paksu says:

    @aditya : I checked your site, and I think you are using a different plugin?

  20. Aditya says:

    Hi I am having a rather particular problem with my blog. I think I have already sent you a message about it before, but here goes anyway. The alt text displayed on the album art isn’t quite working correctly. Like I just listened to Guns N’ Roses – Chines

  21. Taha Paksu says:

    New version has been released. Please backup your CSS file before updating.

  22. Taha Paksu says:

    you should remove this lines

    $albumimage = get_album_art(stripslashes($album->scalar),stripslashes($artist->scalar));
    $replace = array(” “,”&”,”/”);
    $with = array(“%20″,”%26″,”%2F”);

  23. Dan says:

    But deleting lines 478 and 479 do remove the logo successfully.

  24. Dan says:

    Thanks for the quick reply. I tried to delete even just the first part, and now my site doesn’t load, just white, but when the code is there, it loads.

  25. Taha Paksu says:

    244 to 252 is for image loading
    255 to 258 is for image showing
    and line 478 is for the logo.

    I didnt test them just looked and wrote here.

  26. Dan says:

    G’day. Great plugin. Just wondering which lines of code would I remove so that it doesn’t load or display the album art? Also, which lines of code would I remove to remove the logo?

  28. Thank you… I’d rather like to spend some more time on it (because of the Internet Explorer issues), but I can’t…


  29. It worked!!! Thank you so much, you’ve been very very kind.

  31. Hubert says:

    This is the Error i get:

    Warning: htmlspecialchars_decode() expects parameter 1 to be string, NULL /htdocs/blog/wp-includes/compat.php on line 105

    This I used in my Sidebar – Code:

    • Taha Paksu says:

      Try this.

      starting at line 130 there’s a code block:

      function htmlspecialchars_decode($string,$style=ENT_COMPAT)
      $translation = array_flip(get_html_translation_table(HTML_SPECIALCHARS,$style

  32. Hi again.

    The first issue is not resolved yet, although the correction I made to the code… for the second it’s ok now.

    What happens? Maybe Eloy can help me, too?

    Thanks for the plugin and your support 🙂

  34. Eloy says:

    Hello Taha
    First of all… great Plugin, thanks. I have the same problems like Andrè Nakamura. First of all this ugly message (WordPress 2.7.1):

    Warning: htmlspecialchars_decode() expects parameter 1 to be string, NULL given in /home/www/web3/html/el

    • Taha Paksu says:

      for the first problem (line 301 in lastfm.php) change

      echo "<div id='lastfm_recent_comment'>" . stripslashes(htmlspecialchars_decode($text)) . "</div>";


      echo "<div id='lastfm_recent_comment'>" . stripslash

  35. I tried, but the situation hasn’t changed and the message is still there.

    Another thing I forgot: when I listen to tracks doesn’t recognize (because of the tag, I suppose) it appears a text field “Cover image for _____ ” instead of the little i

  36. Hi Taha… when I use your plugin I see this text in the sidebar, right under the widget:

    [code]Warning: htmlspecialchars_decode() expects parameter 1 to be string, NULL given in /web/htdocs/ on line 105[

  37. Samantha says:

    I actually just removed the tags from the php file right after the artist name and song and it worked perfectly 🙂

  38. Samantha says:

    Hello! I think this plugin is absolutely fantastic, but I have a slight problem….. When the css is set to the default 52px length everything is smashed together…. Here’s a screen shot:

  39. Taha Paksu says:

    @Vibeke: Thanks. I’m not developing this anymore because i have no time for it 🙁 you can write that in the discussion page. Thank you again. And sorry.

  40. Vibeke says:


    I just installed the plugin in WordPress 2.7 and it works very well. In the beginning I had the same problem as Christer Dammo, but I just changed the height in the lastfm.css file (line 2) to 185px and now it works fine and looks very nice. The lin

  41. Taha Paksu says:

    @Jason: Well, mine is working well with my username, so its not about the script I think. Can you mail me your username @ maybe i could take a look. btw, try username]/recenttracks.rss

  42. Jason says:

    Hey there,
    Nice work – like it, however I get “This username does not exist, or the feed service is down” even though it is the correct username.
    Any ideas where I look to fix this?
    Thanks in advance.

  43. Taha Paksu says:

    @hutzi: if that situation is about the vertical scrollbar please uninstall the plugin and look if the vertical scrollbar is visible. if it’s not, the re-positioning of the form is because your list causes the vertical scrollbar to get visible. if
