wordpress tips

Grooveshark has a large collection of songs and classical music. You can insert a single song, or create and insert a playlist. The embed codes they provide cannot be used directly in a wordpress.com blog, but they can be converted into a working shortcode (see here for general background).

A. Single song

Example:

Search for the song you want. To get to the embed code when the list of results is fetched, click on the title of the song, click “Share Song”, click “Widget” – or click the checkmark next to the song title, hover over “Share Song”, click “Widget”.

Copy the embed code. It will look like this:

<object width="250" height="40" ETC ETC ETC ETC <param name="flashvars" value="VARIABLES HERE" /><span>TITLE AND LINK on Grooveshark</span></object></object>

Copy the part I have highlighted and turn it into a shortcode this way:
