My Question or Issue


Hi there,

I've been getting an issue with one of my clients where two title tracks that are supposed to have apostrophes keep displaying a "'" error in an embedded Spotify player on his WordPress website. I was wondering what the issue was and how it could be fixed?

Hey @rls04, help's here!

Hmm, let's dive right into this! Could you send over a screenshot of how things are looking on your end? Also, could you try to use the exact code generated from this website: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/widgets/generate/embed/. Let me know how you get on!

 

Have a good one,

Hubo

Hey Hubo,

Thanks for your response. I really appreciate it!

 I copied the two tracks that had display issues and these were the codes that generated from the website you provided:

<iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/track/6L9oGtVHxfVFTlDdMOqy0s" width="300" height="380" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>

<iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/track/2WgVQYLZFnxWlvZtRxS0y2" width="300" height="380" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>

 

What's odd though, is I just checked my client's website (Like 5 minutes ago from when I'm sending this post). And I don't see the issue on the website anymore. I included a screenshot of how it was looking up until about yesterday and a screenshot I took today. 

Not sure what happened, but the issue might have just resolved itself.

Best,
rls04
