The SoundCloud Shortcode plugin allows you to easily integrate a player widget for a track, set or group from SoundCloud into your WordPress Blog by using a WordPress shortcode. Use it like that in your blog post: [soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/LINK_TO_TRACK_SET_OR_GROUP[/soundcloud] It also supports these optional parameters: width, height and params. The "params" parameter will pass the given options on to the player widget. Our player accepts the following parameter options:

  • auto_play = (true or false)
  • show_comments = (true or false)
  • color = (color hex code) will paint the play button, waveform and selections in this color
  • theme_color = (color hex code) will set the background color

Examples:

[soundcloud params="auto_play=true&show_comments=false"]http://soundcloud.com/forss/flickermood[/soundcloud]

Embed a track player which starts playing automatically and won't show any comments.

[soundcloud params="color=33e040&theme_color=80e4a0"]https://soundcloud.com/forss/sets/soulhack[/soundcloud]

Embeds a set player with a green theme.

[soundcloud width="250"]http://soundcloud.com/groups/experimental[/soundcloud]

Embeds a group player with 250px width.

When posting the standard SoundCloud embed code, the plugin tries to use the new HTML5 player, but falls back to the Flash Player for legacy URL formats.
