Eagle-eyed readers might have noticed that the now playing ticker now changed to display last.fm links as well. I really would have switched this option on earlier, but the artist link was bugged in the latest scrobbler add-on for WP.
Turned out the “bug” was really just a minor issue and took sld about 30 seconds to fix. Here’s what you should change in your phpScrobbler.php file, provided that you’re using version 2.2.7 of the add-on:
$ret[$i]['artist-url'] = "http://www.last.fm/explore/search.php?q=";
$ret[$i]['artist-url'] = "http://www.last.fm/music/";
and just comment out the following line
// $ret[$i]['artist-url'] .= "&m=artists";
Violá, bug fixed, %artist-url% now displays the correct link when used on the configuration panel.
