v8.8.10.13

  • bug fix: for a problem which has prevented WP 3.3.x from saving the sidebar widget settings. Rearranging widgets or modifying the widget settings should be possible again. (Thank you for reporting the problem.
  • new: It is now possible the determine the number of rows in almost all statistic tables and to save further appearance options.

v8.8.10.12

  • This is a bug fix version for 8.8.10.11. I have forgotten to remove some code which has helped me to debug some things but which brought you trouble. I'm very sorry for my mistake! (Thank you c365954 and themacmommy for reporting the problem.)

v8.8.10.11

  • bug fix: It solves a problem which could occur since 8.8.10.8 on servers with a PHP installation which does not include the Multibyte String extension (mbstring) (functions like mb_substr() or mb_strrpos() are not usable without this extension). If your blog is on such server then this will help you - but probably only if you write posts in English. But if your blog is on such server and if you write posts in a different language which contains for instance characters with diacritical marks then you should make sure that the PHP on the server of your blog provides such functions. These functions are also used by WP and other plugins when it is necessary to process non-English text. If you have no problems with the RSS feed while podPress 8.8.10.10 is running then this should not concern you (mbstring is probably available). You may find out whether the PHP on the server of your blog supports mbstring functions or not with the help of a different plugin e.g. WordPress System Health (look for "mbstring" in System > Server Setup (> show detailed) > Loaded Extensions) or PHP Server Info (look for "mbstring") (Thank you ptobia for reporting the problem.)
  • new: This is for all who like to define custom CSS for the podPress output: All the elements in the line below the player have now an HTML attribute class. These attributes consist at least of a class name and the class name which depends on the type of the media file. For instance the Download link has the class names: podpress_downloadlink podpress_downloadlink_audio_mp3 if the the file is a MP3 audio file. podPress uses audio, video, ebook, embed and misc as group type and all the file types which you can choose from the list in the podPress box below the post editor. For instace for a PDF file the file specific class would have the suffix _ebook_pdf (Thank you david hickox for the idea.)

v8.8.10.10

v8.8.10.9

  • bug fix: it corrects a problem with the function which limits the characters of several RSS tags. (Thank you johncsnider for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: In 8.8.10.8 the Category Casting settings did not work in combination with the default Permalink scheme. (Thank you ip_tara for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: The Reading and General Settings link on the Feed Settings page of podPress are working now correctly. (Thank you Madsex for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: for a problem with the iTunes:category setting which could occur after switching the language of the blog after saving the feed settings
  • new: podpress_post_scriptblock is a new filter hook of podPress. Read more about it in the Other Notes section.
  • CSS adjustment for WP 3.2 (background-color of .podpress_editor_table has changed)

v8.8.10.8

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • bug fix: an upgrade to this version will remove an old deprecated option which could lead to the situation that podPress would add "Download Standard Podcast" somewhere in the iTunes:summary or iTunes:subtitle of post. (Thank you IAmediaworks for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: The <link> of the RSS image of the <channel> will include the 'Site address (URI)' set in Settings > General. (Thank you lopo for reporting the problem and making suggestions.)
  • bug fix: If the option "Aggressively Protect the news feeds" was set to "Yes" then podPress has removed the formatting from the post content (<content:encoded>) in the feeds. Because this option is deprecated, it is removed now. (Thank you sephage for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: Fix for a bug in the appearance of the iTunes:Keywords option in the podPress box below the post editor which occured when the new option "Use the tags of the post" was active.
  • bug fix: The "Disable Player:" and "Disable Preview Player:" in the podPress box below the post editor are working again. (Thank you Philip for mentioning the problem.)
  • bug fix: The result of the duration auto detection could have a leading white space under some circumstances which is not desirable. (Thank you Puck for reporting the problem and making suggestions.)
  • bug fix: Chrome/Chromium >= v10 displayed the HTML5 audio player depending on certain CSS definitions of the theme without displaying the control elements properly. This podPress version includes a workaround/bug fix for this problem. (Thank you Twanislas for reporting the problem.)
  • change: The options for the feed title of a category feed are re-arranged. Further it is possible to use the Site Title as the title of such a feed.
  • This version includes also some security improvements.

v8.8.10.7

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • bug fix: the function which limits the number of characters for several feed elements is multibyte-character-safe and it does not cut through htmlentities anymore (Thank you franky1029, welshes99 and drezac for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: the HTML5 player appears also in IE9 (JS error fixed) (Thank you dael3 for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: the "Validate your feed" button at the Category Casting settings works again (Thank you meetwp for reporting the problem.)
  • new: It is now possible to "Use the tags of the post" as itunes:keywords. There is a new option with this name in the Post specific settings for iTunes (below the post editor). (Suggested by Twanislas in this thread)
  • new: max. 12 itunes:keywords possible

v8.8.10.6

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • bug fix: a further bug fix for the feed modifying functions. podPress is using now the WP-own list of HTML entities and their numeric equivalents (ent2ncr();) to transform non-ASCII characters in the additional feed elements into RSS-feed-save text. (Thank you Aaron Frankel for reporting the problem.)

v8.8.10.5

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • bug fix: a further bug fix for the feed modifying functions
  • bug fix: podPresshas displayed under some circumstances the player and links twice on single post views

v8.8.10.4

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • bug fix: for a problem with not escaped ampersands in iTunes:category names which appeared in 8.8.10.3 (Thank you BibleStudyRadio, UULosAlamos Webmaster, AJRitz and raymer for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: The iTunes:category settings for the podPress Feeds work now. Depending on your previous iTunes:category settings it might be necessary to adjust them now. The podPress Feeds will no longer use the comparable settings of the main feed settings.

v8.8.10.3

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • The 3rd party statistic options are available again by default. If you have used them before then please control the related settings after the upgrade.
  • bug fix: podPress statistics counts HTML5 play events correct, now. It counts when the "onplaying" event happens (when someone clicks on play and not during when the the HTML5 player buffers (preload) the file). The download numbers with 8.8.10 - 8.8.10.2 are probably to high depending on how many of your listners have used Chrome/Chromium (or Safari desktop versions) to listen your podcasts.
  • bug fix: podPress will use the excerpt of a post if there is one as the iTunes:summary and 255 characters of it as iTunes:subtitle. If a post has no excerpt then podPress takes automatically the post content (or the first parts of it). In older versions podPress has ignored the excerpts. Furthermore podPress will respect the password protected posts and adds only the summary, subtitle and enclosure if there is no password protection or if the user has already entered the password for the post. (Thank you MedHead for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: the iTunes:block options in the podPress Feeds section will show the correct status / current setting (so far it displayed always 'No' regardless of the setting) (Thank you maydaytothemoon for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: Now it is possible to deselect the iTunes feed button (Feed Buttons Widget). (Thank you maydaytothemoon for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: podPress checks whether or the stats tables exist and creates them if necessary when someone activates the stats feature. The db queries do not long include a specific table type. That prevents problems in cases in which the type was not the one which was hardcoded in previous versions of podPress.
  • podPress version number appears only if you want it to in the footer or the Feeds of your blog. It is also possible show only the name of the plugin without the version number.
  • The auto detection of the meta information of the media files can retrieve the cover art of m4a files.
  • on a first installation of podPress, only the podPress Feed with the slug "podcast" will be active by default

v8.8.10.2

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • bug fix: podPress displays the download number for files with white spaces in their names in the "Downloads Per Media File" table and in the line below the player (Thank you SmartPeoplePod for reporting the problem.)
  • bug fix: ebooks will have no longer a "Play in Popup" link

v8.8.10.1

Notice: Upgrading to this version from version 8.8.9.2 or older will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • bug fix: the jQuery and jQueryUI libraries are getting loaded correctly, regardless whether the file system on the server is case sensitive or not

v8.8.10

Notice: Upgrading to this version will rename the podPress meta_keys in the postmeta data base table of your blog (see bug fixes). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

  • a new option at the General Settings page of podPress to display the file size of the media files along with the duration in the line below the player (or player preview)
  • new options at the General Settings page of podPress which make it possible to customize the displayed duration value
  • podPress uses the HTML 5 <audio> tag (instead of the 1PixelOut and Podango player) for MP3 files if the browser engine of a visitor is Webkit 525.x or newer (e.g. the current versions of Safari incl. the variants on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch and of Chrome) or if it is an Internet Explorer 9.0 or newer. (see Player Settings page)
  • a new option at the General Settings page of podPress which can be used to expand the blog-own search to search also in the podcast episode titles and URLs
  • a new option at the General Settings page of podPress which will make it possible to display the podPress meta box also below the post editor box of posts of custom post types. That makes it possible to add podcasts to post of custom post types. (this requires at least WP 2.9)
  • a new option for the XSPF widget. Now, it is possible to customize the playlist entires.
  • upgrade of the XSPF Jukebox player to version 5.9.6
  • the list of the languages for the RSS language option consists now of the ISO 639 languages with a two-letter code and the RSS languages (Thanks to Wiziris who has reported a missing language.)
  • a possibility to set (and overwrite) a few podPress settings via PHP constants in a config file which should be placed in a separate folder (by default: /wp-content/plugins/podpress_options). For instance it is possible to hide all Premium Feed options in the main blog and in all sub blogs. For more information look into the podpress_config-sample.php file.
  • support for EPUB files
  • upgrade to getID3 v1.8.5 (1.8.5-20110218)
  • Apple has withdrawn the service which allowed it to update the list of the episodes in the iTunes Store manually (independly of the automatic update interval). That is why the "Ping iTunes Update" buttons are removed from the Feed/iTunes settings page of podPress. (Thanks to bstritesky who has made me aware of this problem.)
  • bug fix: podPress uses the HTML 5 <audio> and <video> tags for OGG Audio and Video only if the browser engine of a visitor is Gecko 1.9.1 or newer (e.g. FireFox) or Presto 2.5 or newer (e.g. Opera)
  • bug fix: podPress uses different meta_keys for the meta data of the media files and the post specific settings. podPressMedia becomes _podPressMedia and podPressPostSpecific becomes _podPressPostSpecific. podPress is going to rename all existing values automatically. The background is that there are function like the_meta(); which display custom field data sets of a post. These podPress meta data sets and the custom field data sets are stored in the same db table and for instance the_meta(); takes all data sets but the ones with an underscore _ character at the beginning of the meta_key and displays them as custom field name and value. But podPressMedia and podPressPostSpecific are no custom field data sets. (Thanks to cozbaldwin who has made me aware of this problem.)
  • bug fix: the RSS category appears again in the RSS Feeds
  • bug fix: for a problem with the settings update messsage on the settings pages of podPress (occured in older WP versions)

  • bug fix: if you choose Category Name as the Feed title in the podPress Category Casting options then the feed title will be only the name of the category
  • bug fix: if the post specific itunes setting for the keywords is "WordPress Categories" and a post is in categories with names which consists of more than one word then podPress will use category names which consist only of one word
  • bug fix: for Javascript error at the Feed/iTunes Settings page of podPress
  • minimal required WP version: 2.2 - recommended WP version: at least 2.9 to be able to use all features
  • 2 new CSS classes .podpress_mediafile_title and .podpress_mediafile_dursize for the media file title and the duration/file size section in the line below the player
  • 3 new filter hooks (see the "Filter Hooks of podPress" section at the Other Notes)

v8.8.9.2

  • until this version most parts of podPress were restricted to users with the user level 7. But these user levels are deprecated for WP 3.0 and newer versions. From now on the file size, duration and ID tag auto detection are available for users which are allowed to edit_posts and the settings pages of podPress as well as the detailed statistics pages are available for user which are allowed to manage_categories.
  • a new option at the General Settings page of podPress to determine whether the podPress elements (player or player preview, download link, icon, etc.) should be visible in the content sections and the excerpts of posts and pages or only one of these sections.
  • a new option in the podPress Feeds section of the Feed/iTunes Settings page: you can choose to add a link of each active podPress Feed to the <head> sections of your blog. The users will be able to subribe to these Feeds via the Feed icon in the address bar of their browser.
  • the plugin is able to use Curl procedures to detect the file size of a remote media file or to download a remote file to detect the duration and other ID3 data (if fsockopen() is not available or fails)
  • with this version, the keyword clean up procedure allows only separate words as keywords
  • podPress does no longer add filters to the hooks get_attached_file and wp_get_attachment_metadata

  • bug fix: for a problem with duration strings of the scheme mmm:ss or hhh:mm:ss. Part of this bug fix is also a revised millisecondstostr() function.
  • CSS modifications in preparation of WP 3.1 (podPress-own CSS classes for warning and error messages)

v8.8.9.1

  • the option "Bypass the "Included in:" selection for this Feed" works now as intended and as the name it suggests. Posts in RSS Feeds will contain the first of their media file as an enclosure. Posts in ATOM Feeds will contain the all of their media files as enclosures.
  • there is also a new notice for the behaviour of the file type filters. They filter the file types but they also bypass the "Included in:" selection. That is new for the ATOM Feeds.
  • minor CSS modifications

v8.8.9

  • a Category Filter for the podPress Feeds - You can control the Feed content by choosing one or more categories of your posts.
  • an option to bypass "Included in" selection for a certain podPress Feed - You can choose in the podPress box below the editor which file should be included in which Feed. This setting might be useful to select the media file which should be included e.g. in the main RSS Feed but now you can bypass it and the first media file with the right file type will be the enclosure of a post in the (RSS) Feed. A post in an ATOM Feed will contain all attached media files as enclosures.
  • an option to include not only posts with podPress attachment in podPress (and CategoryCasting) Feeds while the file type filter and the category filter is not in use
  • podPress Feeds settings: if you leave the Feed Name field empty and you save the Feed/iTunes settings then you delete the settings of this podPress Feed.

  • bug fix: for a problem which occurred in some blogs after an WordPress upgrade (see e.g. this WP forum thread)
  • bug fix: This version contains several modifications of the code which makes the jQuery UI Accordion effect at the widgets settings page. These modifictions solve problems with this effect which occured during the usage of podPress with WP 2.9 and WP 2.8.
  • bug fix: The file type filter works case insensitive now.
  • correction of some misspelling mistakes

v8.8.8.4

  • bug fix: The file type filter works now as intended: For instance, if you have posts with a mp3 and a m4a file and you have a Feed for the posts with mp3 files and one for posts with m4a files then such post with files of both types will show up in both Feeds. In the mp3-Feed with the mp3 file as the enclosure and in the m4a-Feed with the m4a file as the enclosure.
  • works parallel to the xLanguage plugin ( Read on in this forum thread )

v8.8.8.3

  • now, podPress is going to take over the meta information of the Feed with the slug name "podcast" during a direct upgrade from podPress v8.8.6.3 or an older version to v8.8.8.2. But you should also control all the Feed Settings after the upgrade.
  • bug fix: a further fix for the Always before the tag option
  • bug fix: now, the filter filters not only the posts with certain podPress attachments, it filters also the enclosures in the feed. (If you choose .m4a files the for instance a post with a m4a file and a mp3 file will appear in the Feed but only the m4a file will be visible as an enclosure of this post.)

  • a new feed button for the Premium Feed
  • multiple Feed Buttons and XSPF player widgets in combination with WP 2.8+ | NOTICE: after installing v8.8.8 due to the massive modifications on both podPress widgets you will need to add the widgets again to your sidebars. The widgets will try to take over the old settings as far as possible.

  • bug fix: although it is very recommended to use podPress in combination with the most current WP version, this version includes several bug fixes for problems with older WP versions.

(8.8.7 was only available as beta version resp. as preview for some features of 8.8.8)

v8.8.6.3

  • bug fix: for the "Play in Popup" feature which did not work for non-mp3 files or while the podango player was the mp3 player (in 8.8.6 - 8.8.6.2)

v8.8.6.1

  • bug fix: contains a fix for a problem with the URL sanitation while the "Absolute path of the media files directory" feature is in use (Thanks to mocinoz who has reported this problem)

v8.8.6

  • the process the 1PixelOut player will integrated into the posts is now as it is described in the documentation of the player. One of the advantages that the player software inserts now an object element which is individually assembled for the browser that the visitor/listener uses. This is an further effort to get a cross-browser compatibility of the mp3 player object. Furthermore it will bring back the functionality that a player stops playing if you start another one in the same browser window.
  • podPress includes the Cortado Player 0.6.0 for Ogg Vorbis audio (.ogg) and Ogg Theora video (.ogv) files. Ogg files are going to be embedded with the HTML5 audio and video element. The Cortado player is the fallback option.
  • refreshed statistic settings section on the general settings page of podPress (expanded explanations for all the options, all explanation are now visible all the time if statistic feature is enabled)
  • bug fix: The Quick Counts statistic table (stat logging: Counts Only) shows now by default the Downloads per Media File and if desired the same data sorted by the date (resp. ID) of the posts in which the media files were last published.
  • PODPRESS_DEBUG_LOG = FALSE is a default setting again. Now, It is also possible to check the status of this constant at the general settings page of podPress.
  • bug fix: further CSS modifications for the (video) player preview
  • bug fix: podPress loads the CategoryCasting settings in WP 3.0.x
  • bug fix: the update check of podPress 8.8.5.x has disturbed the dashboard in WP 2.7
  • a link in the popup player window which opens the single post view of the post with the media file
  • a new option on the general settings page of podPress to Show/Hide the "Hide Player"/"Play Now" link
  • a possibility to change the playlist URL of the XSPF player: define the constant PODPRESS_CUSTOM_XSPF_URL with your custom URL. At the beginning of the file podpress.php is a prepared line and a short how-to.
  • localization added: German

v8.8.5.3

  • adjustments in the podpress.js file for a better cross-browser compatibility of the mp3 player object

v8.8.5.2

  • 4 new option for the 1PixelOut player: "Initial Volume Level", "Buffering Time", "Use a cross-domain policy file" and "Use custom values for titles and artists instead of the ID3 data". "Use a cross-domain policy file" can help to display the ID3 information in the player if the mp3 files are not located on the same domain as your blog (and the player shows "Track #1"). With "Use custom values for titles and artists instead of the ID3 data", you can order the 1PixelOut player to use custom values of artist und title instead of the values from the ID3 tags.
  • adjustments of the structure of the mp3 player object element
  • on an upgrade from 8.8.4 or older version to 8.8.5.2 the color settings for the player will not be overwritten anymore. Despite this new behaviour you should definitely have a look to the player settings. There are new options available.

  • new feature: a bot filter for the download statistic - users can select (and deselected) IP addresses and user agent names which are probably search engine bots. The statistics will be computed without the download numbers of these bots. (for FULL / FULL+ stat logging)
  • The display of the statistics of the different collecting method Count Only, FULL and FULL+ are now separated. If the Count Only logging is active then the statistic page will have now besides the Quick Counts a comparable graph. This table and the graph and the Statistic Summary on the Dashboard are based on the numbers of the db table wp_podpress_statcounts. In Full or Full+ logging mode the number come from the wp_podpress_stats. That is important to know because the counter which counts the downloads on the wp_podpress_statcounts table counts when one of the 3 logging modes is active but the other counter which collects the data in the wp_podpress_stats table counts only during Full and Full+ mode. In other words: the numbers of the 2 tables can differ if someone uses the Counts Only mode for a while and than one of the others. Furthermore it is not possible to display the numbers of the Counts Only mode without the download numbers of the bots.
  • a new "Downloads Per Media File" and a new "Downloads Per Post" overview (for FULL / FULL+ stat logging)
