bandcamp album gallery wordpress plugin

Bandcamp Album Gallery WordPress Plugin is a WordPress plugin that arranges all your Bandcamp albums in a masonry-style grid automatically. As you add new albums to Bandcamp, this grid will automatically pull in new albums or tracks and align them in the grid. Bandcamp Album Gallery WordPress Plugin is fully responsive and adapts to the size of the viewing device automatically.

Bandcamp Album Gallery WordPress Plugin can be added to any page or post by simply adding a shortcode. No prior setup is required for this plugin which means that no API keys are needed for Bandcamp, simply install it, configure your  Bandcamp artist page (see below) and see your albums appear in the grid.

Render a playlist for each of your albums to give a less structured appearance.

Choose a minimal layout to display an instagram-like grid of albums

Documentation

To use this plugin, you will need to add a shortcode to your WordPress page or post. Some shortcode usage examples are shown below:

[bandcamp-gallery id="my_id" bandcamp_urls="https://artist.bandcamp.com"]
[bandcamp-gallery id="my_id" bandcamp_urls="https://artist.bandcamp.com" minimal="true"]
[bandcamp-gallery id="my_id" bandcamp_urls="https://artist.bandcamp.com" tracklist="false"]
[bandcamp-gallery id="my_id" bandcamp_urls="https://artist.bandcamp.com" tracklist="false"]
[bandcamp-gallery id="my_id" bandcamp_urls="https://artist.bandcamp.com" tracklist="false" max_albums="30"]
[bandcamp-gallery id="my_id" bandcamp_urls="https://artist1.bandcamp.com,https://artist2.bandcamp.com" tracklist="false" max_albums="30" random="true"]

NOTE: This plugin will cache album details in a file in the plugin directory. The first load might take some time depending on the amount of tracks or albums you have on your Bandcamp artist page. Subsequent page loads will not incur this once off penalty.
