    Now - Embed BANDCAMP Albums In Your Progressive Ears Posts

    See below. You can now embed a Bandcamp album in your post. You can play it, and you can even buy it - directly from PE.

    BUT -Bandcamp does not make it easy to do this.

    Every Bandcamp album has a unique number, and you will not find it anywhere on the album's normal page. If there was an easy way to find the number, it would be easy to embed Bandcamp albums. But instead, you have to jump through hoops to find the number.

    Here's how you find it:

    - Go to Bandcamp, and bring up an album.

    - Under the picture of the album cover, you'll see a link saying "Share / Embed". Click that.

    - Now click "Embed this album"

    - Select any of the options, then you'll see a text box containing code that looks something like this:

    <iframe style="border: 0; width: 350px; height: 470px;" src="https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=2628475075/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/tracklist=false/transparent=true/" seamless><a href="https://ephemeralsun.bandcamp.com/album/harvest-aorta">Harvest Aorta by Ephemeral Sun</a></iframe>

    - The album number is in the code, where it says "album="... (see the bold text above).

    - Back in PE: Either enter BC tags, or "Go Advanced" then click the BC tag, and insert that number - so it looks like this :
    [ BC]2628475075[ /BC ]
    (...without the spaces.)

    Here - I'm doing it:





    This is complicated. Because of my insane work schedule I will not have a lot of time to walk anyone through the process. If you can make it work - great. If not - read the instructions again and keep trying.

    If you still don't manage - just post the link to a Bandcamp page in the same way you normally would.



    Also note : If you click "Go Advanced" when entering a post, you'll see a Bandcamp logo on the toolbar - right next to the Soundcloud logo. Click that. It will insert 2 "BC" tags. Just insert the album's unique number between those tags, and you'll embed it - like the one above.



    (Thanks to "Trane" for prompting me to do this )

    Testing with a Phaedra ripoff. I guess I'm probably going to need to press enter or it'll look like this:

    Nifty feature, thanks!

    Great feature. The code does not appear to be working (yet) through tapatalk though. It does work on the website.

    It looks like it also works when you type the tags.

    That's the only way I can get it to work unless I hit Go Advanced.

    The advanced tags only show when you "go advanced"

    On a more serious note - any special tags I create will only appear on the advanced toolbar. The non-advanced toolbar is not editable.

    Agreed!
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    OK, makes sense, though post #1 only mentions Advanced towards the end of the instructions well after it was talking about clicking the BC tag, so I figured I was just missing out on something by using a browser rather than a phone that most people seem to use.
