Have you ever wanted to share your favorite track, album or playlist from your Spotify to your WordPress blog? This tutorial will show you how easy it is to do.

1. Login to your WordPress account and start a new post, or open an existing draft.

2. Open you Spotify desktop application.

To share an entire album:

1. Browse to the album you want to share and (if your using Windows) right click it (on Mac: 2-finger click or control+click). A drop down menu will appear.

2. Select Copy Album Link or Copy Spotify URI at the bottom of the list. (See screenshot below.) This will copy the needed information about this item to your clipboard.

Be sure to put the link or URI on a new line from your regular text, so it can tell the difference. Like so: Screenshot 2015-04-13 14.54.09 4. Hit the preview button to test it. If it worked, it should look something like this: Screenshot 2015-04-13 14.53.20

In my example, the link automatically aligned to left, and the URI was automatically centered. I’m not sure if this is just a fluke or if that is the nature of the element. If you have any thoughts, let me know in the comments.

Share a Track or Playlist:

To post a single song, or a personalized playlist, is almost exactly the same. Just browse to the song or playlist, right click it, choose your choice of copy (Hyperlink or URI) and paste it into your post, on a line of its own. To finish, here is one of my favorite Piano Guys songs. Enjoy!
