Last.fm widget in sidebar

  1. This is giving me a few problems.
    I'm copying the source code from the Last.fm website into a new text window and saving as usual.

    But the act of copy/paste seems to be stripping out the opening <style type="text/css"> tag. I've tried this several times, and all with the same result.

    I'm at a loss as to what else to try...

  2. By copy/paste I mean of course change/save changes. Oops.

  3. You can't use the last.fm widget itself because of javascript, but you can still put your chart in your sidebar.

  4. That'll do the job nicely.

    Thanks a lot!

  5. This may help: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/how-to-add-music-playlists-in-wordpresscom-using-lastfm-and-playlistcom?replies=6 .

    And there is a way to use the RSS widget to display playlists as well covered in this FAQ (about half way down): http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/12/24/using-the-rss-widget/ .

  6. /nod to tsp Cool! I didn't know about the feeds on last.fm Thanks for pointing them out. That would certainly work in an RSS widget.

    @excusesandhalftruths-I like the last.fm chart because the image is "dynamic" and hosted on last.fm's site. :)

  7. Here's the chart link and you can customize it a number of ways. Put the HTML code generated in a Text widget.
