Mini-Player Not Showing in Wordpress

Solved!

Mini-Player Not Showing in Wordpress

I share playlist links in my blog posts and they show up as mini players, while I'm editing and after the post is published. When I copied and pasted a playlist link today though, it only shows as the link and not the mini player. I have updated the Spotify desktop app (Mac), Wordpress desktop ass and restarted my computer to no avail.

 

Anyone else having this issue today or lately?

For some strange and random reason, I got it work by using the URI code. It will only show as the code in the draft blog post but when I preview my post and after it is published, it shows the centered mini-player, which is also curious, since this is also different. So I have no clue what's going on but I'm happy that I'm still able to share playlists.

The same is happening for me. Podcasts, albums, and songs all seem to work fine (outputs an <iframe> tag)… it is only playlists that doesn't work (outputs an <a> tag).

  • Same for me! Even on a brand new untouched Wordpress install Spotify players no longer generate from a link.

Screenshot from Wordpress backend showing the podcast link working but the playlist link not. The output is exactly the same on the front end.

Having same/similar issues with playlist links and embed. 

 

I'm not sure why this makes a difference, but the newer (I guess) style of Spotify playlist links seem to work more reliably than the type we've been using.

The embed on this page "should" work - https://waterfire.org/about/music-of-waterfire/october-5-2019-waterfire-music-program/ - but it doesn't.
