Podcasting done right.
There could be a number of reasons for this, but the most common one is that you have another podcasting plugin activated on your site. Make sure you deactivate any other podcasting plugins (e.g. BluBrry PowerPress, PodPress, etc.). If you have done that and the plugin is still not working as it should then have a read of the rest of the FAQs as well as the support forum - if you don't find what you need there, then create a new topic.
Your podcast page will always be available from this URL on your site: http://www.example.com/?post_type=podcast, but if you go to the plugin's settings page (Podcast > Settings) you can specify a URL slug that will make your podcast URLs more attractive - once you have saved your slug, the podcast archive page URL will be formatted like this: http://www.example.com/your-slug.
On the plugin's settings page (Podcast > Settings) you can opt to use the plugin's built-in templates - they will ensure that your podcast is displayed correctly. They are not guaranteed to fit in with every theme, but you can simply create your own page templates to override them. To do this, disable the use of the built-in templates and copy the 'archive-podcast.php' and 'single-podcast.php' files from the plugin's 'templates' directory and paste them into your theme's root folder - from there you can edit them to display the content however you wish.
You shouldn't ever need to do this, but if you would like to override the the RSS feed content then copy the 'feed-template.php' file from the plugin's 'templates' directory and paste it into your theme's root folder - from there you can edit it to display the feed content however you wish.
This issue actually has nothing to do with this plugin. Your server and your WordPress installation will each have a maximum file upload size that you are allowed to make use of and there is no way for this plugin to override that. There are a few ways in which you can increase your server's maximum file upload size, but those instructions are outside the scope of this plugin's FAQ.
There could be a few reasons for this:
If any of these are true for you then that will most likely be the reason that the media player is not showing on your podcast episodes.
For your podcast image to be valid on iTunes, it must be at least 1400x1400 px. This means that when you upload your image you must make sure to select a size option that at least has those dimensions. The image will display smaller on the plugin's settings screen, but as long as your uploaded image is the correct dimensions and you have selected the right size when inserting it then it will work.
Once you have saved a password for your podcast feed you will not see the password on screen again - this is because it is encoded and stored securely. You can enter a different password at any time, but if you save the settings page and you do not want to change the password then simply leave the password field blank and it will not be updated.
There is currently no documentation for this plugin, but you can post questions on the support forum here: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/seriously-simple-podcasting - I will respond to topics as I have time to do so, but I can make no guarantees of my availability. Before posting anything on the support forum, please update to the latest version of the plugin.
