This is the instructions directly from WordPress and Official.fm that clearly say you can embed an Official.fm player on a wordpress blog. But, for me so far, no luck. Any thoughts?
Hot Off The Press: A WordPress Announcement
September 14th, 2010 | api, how-to
With a little whitelisting by the kind folks at Automattic, Official.fm users can now embed tracks and playlists into any WordPress.com (WordPress-hosted) blog post!
You will notice a newly added “WordPress” destination to the track/playlist embed page. Simply copy/paste this code into your blog post with your player size of choice and your set.
If you have a WordPress.org (self-hosted) blog, either use the “Anywhere” code (see the iframe note below) or use the “WordPress” code by whitelisting the official.fm domain by using the oEmbed API.
Full oEmbed instructions via our Developers page:
WordPress has supported oEmbed since Version 2.9. It has really simplified video and audio embeds in your blog post.
To add official.fm as a whitelist oEmbed provider to your blog, just add this line at the top of “functions.php” (in your theme folder) after <?php :
Once done, simply enter the plain text URL of an official.fm track or playlist somewhere within your blog post and it will automatically turn into an official.fm embedded player. Magic!
By default, small player with a 100% width will be displayed but you can also adjust player width by wrapping your URL in the an [embed] shortcode:
NOTE: When using the “Anywhere” iframe embed code in the HTML view, the code will disappear when switching to the Visual view. This is a known issue and WordPress recommends strictly using the HTML editor when adding your own code. Also, your player will not be visible while editing your post, so we recommend previewing your post to make sure that it is embedding correctly.
Make sense? This is a little nerdy, so we welcome any questions/feedback in the comments section.
