WordPress Tip: iTunes Integration via last.fm

Tutorial, WordPress

So, you’ve got a personal blog and want to integrate your iTunes playlist into WordPress, but don’t just want to say that you’re listening to a CD – you want to display the album art too? WordPress has a few solutions that work great.  The easiest way to do that is by utilizing the “scrobbler” built into last.fm – on which an API can export just about any data you need.  Cue last.fm records and last.fm recent album artwork.

These plugins will take your last X number of CD covers from last.fm and displays them.  last.fm records has a nice caching system, and it’s one I’ve used personally, but recent album artwork has gotten a lot of positive reviews.
