We wanted to make a podcasts page on our website using the “Buzzsprout Podcasting WordPress Plugin”, but it seems to only support one function: embed individual podcast episodes onto a page. As WordPress is one of the most popular platforms for displaying web content, the official Buzzsprout plugin should provide more codes so website owners have greater flexibility in displaying their Buzzsprout-powered podcasts on their websites. Codes like:
latest-title (display title of latest episode)
latest-description (display description of latest episode)
latest-date (display date of latest episode)
recent1-title (display title of first recent episode)
recent1-description (display description of first recent episode)
recent1-date (display date of first recent episode)
recent2-title (display title of second recent episode)
recent2-description (display description of second recent episode)
recent2-date (display date of second recent episode)
If these codes are available, then I greatly apologize. However, I didn’t see anything in the docs that showed the existence of anything in the way of a “latest-episode” code.
Otherwise, with embed codes like the ones listed above, we could VERY EASILY create a “podcast page” on our website, make it look exactly how we want, ensure that the latest episode in our Buzzsprout account is always highlighted, and the content would populate itself thus never requiring the page to be updated.
As a side note, I also wouldn’t mind seeing a pay-for version of the plugin that featured ready-made, professional, eye candy type of podcast layouts, such as the one this church is using: http://www.stpetersonwillis.org.nz/#!podcasts/c14vj
