Sp*tify Play Button for WordPress


Now with Gutenberg block!

Sp*tify Play Button lets you easily add a Spotify Play Button for instant play of album, playlist or song by adding the Sp*tify Play Button for WordPress block or adding a shortcode:

Album example: [spotifyplaybutton play="spotify:album:7JggdVIipgSShK1uk7N1hP"]

Playlist example: [spotifyplaybutton play="spotify:user:jonk:playlist:65ujzBs6WTdWDIr17dOXUm"]

Song example: [spotifyplaybutton play="spotify:track:2qntSA2cwerjTduHPuKnW5"]

You don’t have to remember these shortcodes since there is a button in the admin page that let’s you add a Sp*tify Play Button directly if you are using the classic editor. If you are using Gutenberg, the block is recommended.

Simply right click on album, playlist or song in Spotify and click „Share” and then click „URI”. Either paste that together with the shortcode above or just use the admin button and paste the URI there.

You can set the style for your Sp*tify Play Buttons on the „Sp*tify Play Button Settings” page under the „Settings” menu (http://YOURBLOG/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=spotifyplaybutton_settings).

You can also add attributes to customize a single Sp*tify Play Button:

  1. view

  2. size

  3. sizetype

  4. link

All of these will override the settings in „Sp*tify Play Button Settings” for the Sp*tify Play Button and they are all optional.

Example: [spotifyplaybutton play="spotify:user:jonk:playlist:65ujzBs6WTdWDIr17dOXUm" size="0" sizetype="big"]

All I needed for my website was a simple, inexpensive Spotify Play Button. Using the button installed by this plugin at the top of my edit page, everything worked perfectly! The results were better than expected and even provided a playlist for all the tracks in the album.
