add a ReverbNation widget to a wordpress blog post

ReverbNation widgets can be embedded right within a wordpress blog post. This two minute tutorial demonstrates how.

I think I may now know how to embed an RN Widget in a post. Let’s try, shall we? Here’s the small tune player widget, with the material I loaded into the LTB RN site.


Have a listen!

It was pretty simple. ReverbNation provides many ways to obtain the code. Each widget even typically provides a ‘share’ button. Clicking this opens another instance of your browser, containing not only another instance of the widget, but also HTML code for the widget. At this point, you just need copy the code, by context menu, <ctl>-c, or even the button labeled ‘copy’ (clever, hunh?).

Once you have this code, you can paste it into any HTML field. For instance, the Edit Post screen in wordpress can accept this code. Just make sure that your editor has the ‘HTML’ tab active, rather than the ‘Visual’ tab active.

That’s all there is to it! Let’s do another! Heck – you do one!

  1. Start a new blogpost,
  2. click on the ‘share’ button above,
  3. click on the copy button,
  4. go back to the post you are editing,
  5. click the ‘HTML’ tab,
  6. paste to the post,
  7. give the post a catchy title — I suggest “Listen to the BEST BAND IN THE WORLD”
  8. Publish

Simple, eh?

You can think of it as a tip in return for this great two minute tutorial 🙂Quantcast

  1. yeah.. followed your directions and nada. just posting html script. been at this for days now trying to figure out how to post our reverbnation store. i’ve read so many articles and none of the directions seem to be working- OR i am just retarded. 😉

  2. EMBED your Reverbnation songs using this code:

    [gigya src=”” flashvars=”id=artist_######&posted_by=&skin_id=PWAS1009&font_color=12ff98&auto_play=false&shuffle=false” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowNetworking=”all” allowfullscreen=”true” wmode=”transparent” quality=”best” width=”100%” height=”300″ ]

    REPLACE ###### in the “id=artist_######&” segment with your own user id code which may be found at any of your personal song pages as seen in the location bar of your browser:

    You can also change the style of your widget by changing the number after “&skin_id=PWAS” to any number between 1000 and 1020. Experiment to see what you get.
