SoundCloud Shortcode


This plugin converts all SoundCloud shortcodes into embeddable SoundCloud players. It works for any SoundCloud track, playlist, user, or group. Once you install this plugin, it will work for any of your WordPress blog posts. I mean, sure you could use oEmbed or the snappy new Gutenberg editor to simply paste in a SoundCloud URL; but we like to keep things old-school 😎

A simple example:


More Options

SoundCloud Shortcodes support these optional parameters:

  • width
  • height
  • params

The params parameter passes additional options to the SoundCloud embeddable player. You can find a full list on the SoundCloud Developers pages:

An example of a track that starts playing automatically, with hot-pink controls:

[soundcloud params="auto_play=true&color=#F368E0"][/soundcloud]
