    Hi. I’d love to have a last.fm-widget too. My favourite would be the “favourite-songs at all”-charts.

    I LOVE Last.Fm. I just tried to ad the code to my side bar and it didn’t work. Is there anyone that can make this happen that reads this posting area? Or are we really just talking amongst ourselves?

    I already did contact the staffs a while back, but decide to post here, just in case some of the staffs pass by :)

    The most recently played widget for wp would be great !

    People have been asking for this for so long now, I have to wonder whether the deal with Sonific tied wordpress into not using any other music-related widgets?

    Please send you new feature request in to staff during weekdays and during support hours using this link. http://wordpress.com/contact-support/
    When making your request please include a link to the widget you are requesting as well as your reasons for requesting it.

    Well, whoever says you can’t add Last.fm because of Java, or HTML, or any other widget is just not knowing what he or she is talking about, and it does not matter if it is a blogger or the owner of the damn WordPress. I have been developing websites for 10 years, and if the staff here is not competent enough to allow java AND still protect THEIR butt, well guess what it is not my business.

    Do like me, got to Blogger. I spent 1 hour figuring out everything I can’t do here, and it took me 1 minute to add Last.fm widget with all the java it contains on Blogger.

    Bottom line, the problem is not Last.fm, it is not you, it is not me, it is not java, it is WordPress!

    It’s not wordpress so stop wining as a small child. The problem are lamers that do everything they can to exploit some hidden vulnerability . I hate blogger for the 125135531535 spam blogs and idiotic myspace like layouts.

    repost: I actually sent a feedback to last.fm forum about this widget, so far no answer yet. I’m hoping it will be added as well.

    On the contrary, I think http://www.myflashfetish.com/ also has a nice widget, I’m using it but I only put a direct link to the player. Try it.

    I’ve wished for this for a while, but recently discovered the rss feeds on lastfm as an alternative. It works for me… jamesobrien.id.au

    Some people are using the last.fm style chart instead of rss feeds, it’s widgetized-looking feeds anyways. Not bad tho.

    That’s what I use on my blog.

    I’ve sent several feedbacks requesting a last.fm widget without acknoledgement or response.

    The dedicated lack of communication here is puzzling, but given the prolonged and intense silence on this issue it looks like a resolute policy decision to support last.fm widgets on wp.org but not wp.com

    In the meantime, projectplaylist.com do playlist displays. They’re not dynamically updated, but they look better than last.fm’s and they will play individual songs directly.

    You can see an example here:

    http://thepriceoflove.net/story/soundtrack/

    That example of mine is posted on a blog page. I haven’t tried shrinking it to fit a sidebar, at least not yet.

    Maybe I’m still faintly hoping that wp.com aren’t really quite as deaf on this request as they currently seem determined to appear, and are busy fixing it right now … or even tomorrow (lol).

    I’ve sent several feedbacks requesting a last.fm widget without acknoledgement or response.

    WordPress.com only has one support guy, who has to field everything coming in from the support tab, the ‘report this blog’ tabs, the contact form, the support email address, and quite frequently people being forwarded from these forums. That’s technical glitches, splogs, ToS violations, and user-generated drama. I very much doubt he even knows what the status is on a last.fm widget.

    Basically, they don’t have the time to pay attention to widget or theme requests. As for .org support, that’s third-party and nothing to do with Automattic. The same goes for widgets as for themes; if you really want it, you’re going to have to switch to .org.

    Mark does a fabulous job, I agree.

    The thread above contains seven instances where people have been told, more or less, ‘please send a feedback, and your request will be noted.’ There are other last.fm threads which say exactly the same thing and that’s a little optimistic.

    A fairer response might be:

    ‘Thanks for the idea, which a fair few other people have suggested. Unfortunately, it’s not possible right now, and unlikely to reach our radar any time soon since we’re way too busy.’

    ‘In the meantime, there are some reasonable alternatives listed in this thread.’
