Spotify Embeds

  1. Hello, I can't seem to embed spotify links any more?! I have done it lots of times before but I copy the link and paste onto my post but it won't paste. Nothing comes up. Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is ohwellenoughsaid.wordpress.com.

  2. Staff have changed the editor again. That is a known issue http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/paste-text-broken-visual-editor?replies=9 You may be able to paste when using the Text Edit view as a work around. Using paste as text Visual editor Row 2 icon #5 removes all formatting and spacing.

  3. Thanks for the info timethief, but I have hundreds of spotify url links on as many posts. It will take me weeks to repaste edits. Are WordPress not supporting Spotify or vice versa? I hope not.

  4. Why are all of the Spotify playlists that I've embedded and used to appear perfectly suddenly look like this?

    Hi everyone,

    I currently wasn't able to reproduce an error with Spotify embeds. When I use either of the methods listed here, the embed codes produce the correct player as shown here:

    If you're still having trouble, could you paste a direct link to a post on your site with a Spotify embed so I can take a closer look?

  7. Well, I just checked my blog again this morning, and magically it seems the embeds look fine...whereas two days ago they did not. Not sure what, if anything, changed. (And I've used the methods specified in the above post exclusively.) Will keep an eye on it.

  8. That's fabulous news. Thanks so much for letting us know.

    Awesome to hear!

  10. Hello! Fairly new to wordpress here but I followed both methods that were suggested earlier and I'm still having trouble. Did the problem ever get completely fixed?

    Here's the blog post...

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi blendertunes,

    I went back in the revision history for that post and copied the Spotify address you were using. The playlist is coming up empty on my side. Could you try this method one more time?

    If that doesn't work, please drop a link here so I can investigate more!

  12. Hey jeremylduvall,
    Thanks for the quick response. I did more research into it and found that since my spotify playlist is mostly remixes and songs not recognized on spotify, it won't load my playlist. So I just went ahead a deleted it for now and used 8tracks. Thank you for your help.

    Ah - thanks for the additional info. I appreciate it! Please let me know if you need anything else.

  14. Still having problems with embedded Spotify codes. Am I doing something wrong? I copy and paste the http link but for some reason every single link has disappeared from my blog

    Hi hackskeptic,

    All of the embeds on the following URL appear to be working correctly for me:

    http://hackskeptic.com/2014/07/31/joy-division-unknown-pleasures-1979-review/

    Could you let me know a URL where you're still having trouble?

  16. That's weird. I'm logged in to spotify and all of my posts show a complete blank area where the embeds are supposed to be.

  17. I've logged off, restarted my laptop and the embeds are back in vision. I have no idea why this has happened but I'm guessing the problem was at my end so everything seems fine.

    Great! Well, I'm glad they popped up again. Please let me know if they disappear for some reason.
