    Hi! first of all thank you for this plug-in its more than great!

    this is my question:

    Its there any code in php to call the player with the last track uploaded to place it in the template? exactly like the “Live preview” of the settings?

    For example and with this code i call the player with the last track uploaded just like the “live preview” of the settings… or for example when i use [soundcloud] “inside a post” with out id it goes by default with the las track it would be the same but with PHP to integrate it with the template..

    i would like to place the player as part of the template with the las track uploaded is there any way!?

    Just for make myself more clear… i dont want to use the souncloud player in my posts.. i want to place it in the index page as part of the template…
