automagically post soundcloud likes into wordpress

with the new wordpress, soundcloud integration has been added to the oEmbed automatic linking, which is similar to the way facebook will auto link with a preview. in wordpress, you must use the shortlink embed code.

this means you can link to soundcloud songs or pages, and have the mini player embed itself automatically. pretty neat, and almost expected these days on the web.

but what if you want to take it a step further? we wanted to have our soundcloud activity (such as liking a song) automatically post a new entry on our Music Is My Medicine website everytime, without needed to do any work. we thought there would be a plugin to accomplish this, and maybe there is, but instead we ran across this very interesting and awesome “code recipe” that integrates it and does all the work for you! you sign in to wordpress and soundcloud to give the recipe access, then setup the variables, and voila–it is enabled and running for you. the true definition of “automagically”
