Here are instructions for including playlists, tracks or a follow button in the community.


Get a Spotify URI:

  • In your desktop client right-click a playlist, track or artist
  • Select Copy Spotify URI


Show a playlist or track in your forum post:

  • Start a new topic or reply
  • Click the Insert link button
  • Paste a Spotify URI (See above)
  • Optional: directly after the URI you just pasted, type :small without the quotation marks
  • Click OK


Show a follow button (for you or your favorite artist) in your signature:

  • In the Spotify client click on your name, top right
  • In the main section right-click on your username, just below where it says USER
  • Click Copy Spotify URI
  • Go to the community (that's here)
  • Log in, if you aren't already
  • At the top of the community, click on My Settings
  • Go to Personal Information
  • In the Signature field enter the following:
    <a href="SpotifyURI">Follow me</a>
    (Where Spotify URI is what you just copied. It looks something like spotify:user:usernamehere)
  • Click Save
