Using this widget[edit source]

This widget allows you to add SoundCloud tracks to your wiki pages.

To insert this widget, use the following minimum code:

{{#widget:SoundCloud
 |id=26963349
}}

Full code:

{{#widget:SoundCloud
 |id= 
 |width= 
 |height= 
 |color= 
 |visual= 
}}

Parameters[edit source]

  • id - numeric ID of the track (required)
  • width - width of the widget (default = 100%, use a plain number for pixels)
  • height - height of the widget (default = 160)
  • color - player theme color (default = ff5500, use hex values without #)
  • visual - whether to embed classic or visual player (true/false, default = false = classic player)

Notes[edit source]

  • To get numeric ID of a track when in SoundCloud click Share > Embed and look inside the embed code for something like "...api.soundcloud.com/tracks/26963349&...". The number "26963349" in this example is the track ID.
  • Parameter color has no effect in visual player.
  • Visual player looks better in a high height value. SoundCloud suggests 300, 450 and 600 as heights.
  • You can further customize this widget in your wiki easily and add more boolean parameters if you wish for auto_play, hide_related, show_comments, show_user and show_reposts. Just look in the widget's code and it's pretty much self-explanatory.
