This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The IceStats plug-in checks the status of the IceCast server, and if it is online it will display the current artist, song title and a link to the stream.

After activation the plug-in will show up in your widget menu, and all of the plug-ins settings can be managed in the menu located at Settings -> Icestats.

  1. Upload icestats folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Setup your server information in the Settings -> Icecast Menu
  4. Enable the Widget in the Widgets menu


Q. Does this plugin work with shoutcast?
A. This plugin was developed for Icecast and tested only with Icecast.
