When WordPress 2.6 was released, quite a number of plugins worked out of the box while others broke. Unfortunately, PodPress was one of those plugins which broke. It has been discovered that PodPress has some sort of incompatibility with the new post revisions feature found within 2.6. Mightyseek, the author of the plugin claims that he is working on a new version and that it was going to be released within that weekend, or the next 10 days. Both have passed with no sign of an update. Also, the podPress forums don’t contain any information in terms of when the next release will be rolled out.
Considering how popular podPress is, it’s great to see that Andrew Ozz has published an article that details a fix for the plugin until the next version is released. The fix involves a snippet of code that you copy and paste into a podPress related file. This allows the podcast to be attached to blog posts. Hopefully, this works for the majority of podPressers out their.
Speaking of podPress, how many of you are using this particular plugin? It’s a great way to dabble with podcasting without having much to worry about. If you are using this plugin, link me in the comments to your work as I’d like to take a listen and perhaps feature your show in a future post.
