This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


The plugin allows you to integrate a player widget from into your WordPress Blog by using a WordPress shortcodes.
this is how it works:

These Shortcodes do also supports several optional parameters. These parameters will pass its given value as option on to the player widget.
At the moment the hearthis Shortcode accepts the following parameter and options:

  • width define the width of the widget (number value and if <= 100 means in % and abouve 100 is in pixels. default is 100)
  • height define the height of the widget (integer value or empty for default )
    if this value is less 100 it will passed as percent if it is higher than 100 it will parsed as pixels
  • theme you can choose between these 2 options transparent (default) or transparent_black
  • hcolor button and passed time color for the waveform (not set or a hex color with or without a prependig #)
  • color highlight color for the waveform (not set or a hex color with or without a prependig #)
  • style style ‘1’ is default waveform and value ‘2’ is the digitized waveform
  • background shows the background if set (values not set, 1 or 0, if is 1 the height is 170px)
  • waveform hides the waveform if you set to ‘1’, change track height fixed to 95px (values 0 off, 1 on)
  • autoplay starts with autoplay (values 0 off, 1 on)
  • cover hides the cover image if its set (values 0 off, 1 on)
  • block_size size of the waveform blocks (numberr, steps from 1 to 10, default is 2, works only if style is set to 2)
  • block_space space size between the waveform blocks (integer, steps from 1 to 10, default is 1, works only if style is set to 2)
  • liststyle only available on playlists or profile urls, this will display a list as single tracks buut works only if you provide value ‘single’. If you enter a profile uri from this listing is limited by 50 tracks.
  • css string, should contain a valid uri that will load an additional css file link the link tag


This Version is now stable and provides also a fallback for some old hearthis Shortcode params.
So these params could also being used because they will passed to the their new names.

  • color2 the old name of the hcolor property
  • params a params string with the namend values
  • digitized_size old name of the waveform block size (see block_size)
  • digitized_space old name of the waveform block space (see block_space)


Embed a single track without any params.

Embed a playlist or setlist without params.

Embed a user profile with a blue hightlight color.
[hearthis hcolor=”0000ff”][/hearthis]

Embed a user without color params and autostart.
[hearthis hcolor=”#ff5c24″ color=”#33fd11″ autostart=”1″][/hearthis]

Embeds a track with a black theme and a background image (if set) and hides the cover.
[hearthis theme=”transparent” background=”1″ cover=”1″][hearthis]

Embeds a track player with 50% width and a green button color.
[hearthis width=”50″ color=”#33fd11″][/hearthis]

Embeds a track player with 500px width and hides the waveform and has the transparent_black theme. Remember this will change track height to 95 pixels.
[hearthis width=”500″ waveform=”1″ params=”color2=00ff00&theme=transparent_black”][/hearthis]

Embeds a playlist or set with 400px height.
[hearthis height=”400″][/hearthis]

This is not a real option, its more like a hook and works only with playlists or profile urls.
So if you want to display a playlist or user profile as single tracks and not as a list you can set this option.
For users we limited this by 50 tracks. Does only take effect if the value single is inside the liststyle tag.
[hearthis liststyle=”single”][/hearthis]

I reported an issue with the height parameter not working: The HTML embedding works, so I will just use that. I thought this plugin might add some value in centrally defining defaults and making embedding quicker, but it does not work well for me. It says it has not been tested with my version of WordPress.

  • minor bug fix with track detection and height bugfixes


  • minor bug fix with theme transparent_black option that doens’t work, if you use the transparent_black we have to remove the value of the color and to add the share path to the irframe url? maybe it’s a lil’ bug at I’ll check this later. Right now this work’s for all wordpress users.

  • includes a .pot file for internationalization but I don’t used it.
  • added the latest API functions for the shortcode params
  • new backend/wp-admin Menu with color pickers


  • several bugfixes and reformating code to object base programming standard


  • added a trailing slash to an URL if its not exist

This release fixes deprecated or wrong options and removes errors so now you will be able to use this plugin in the latest wordpress version. Now you will have full control about the latest original hearthis parameters.
