Last.fm RPS WordPress Plugin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note: if you have this error message shown inside the plugin :

Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated in
blabla/wp-content/plugins/lastfm-rps/lastfm.php
on line 120

Please change

$artist = split("_",$string);

on line 120 to

$artist = explode("_",$string);

Description : Its a widget plugin which collects data from Audioscrobbler web services and gets your last listened tracks and their album images. It works in PHP4 platforms and uses my simplexml class to collect data from Audioscrobbler.

Installation : The directory structure should be like this :

 --> wp-plugins/
	|-- lastfm_RPS/
		|-- noart.gif
		|-- simplexml.class.php
		|-- readme.txt
		|-- lastfm.css

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.

Note : If your theme isn’t widget enabled, you can insert this plugin in your sidebar.php file or wherever you want like this :

<div>
<h3>My Last.fm</h3>

<?php lastfm_recent_sidebar([username],[songs to show],[timezone diff in seconds],[image position 'left' or 'right'],[The text at bottom of this widget],[enable cache 'true' or 'false'])?>

</div>

Download : You can get the latest release here : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lastfm-rps/

Current Version : 1.1

Demo : You can see a working example in the middle sidebar at my homepage ;)

  • Changed the datetime display configuration like “x days y seconds and z minutes ago”
  • Changed the div’s into tables which are more reliable for different themes.
  • If the user hasn’t any wp_head() included in his/her theme’s header.php, this script checks and adds its css itself.

Whats the fixes in Version 0.3?

  1. Thanks for informing me about that. I’ll prepare an update with the 64px images added.

  2. I’m not great with this whole scripting thing. But I know enough to that I was able to change the album overlays. I got them to show up the way I want them however I can’t seem to get the artist and playback info to display the right way. Can you help?

    Here is a pic of what it looks like. Thanks.

  3. sorry for the late answer. in lastfm.css file there are the individual styling definitions for :

    #lastfm_recent li .lastfm_recent_date
    #lastfm_recent li .lastfm_recent_artist
    #lastfm_recent li .lastfm_recent_title

    inside of each one you can put:

    padding:20px; (or the value that fits to your design well)
