Podpress won't work on single posts. (39 posts)

    Actually, no I didn't try the snippet (though I much appreciated your input). I'm not quite as code savvy in PHP as others and have bungled it all up a few times by tweaking with any of the PHP. Sorry!

    I also am having this same problem with the single posts. I tried to follow the forum but I don't have that theme - I use "vistered-little" - so I'm not sure what's going wrong. I've used the podpress plugin for about a year but in the last few weeks we've realized it doesn't work in single posts -just shows the [display_podcast] - any help is appreciated.

    Also - the play button seems to have disappeared - you have to click the 'play now' text for the button to appear but it used to just show as a default. I haven't changed any settings between it working and not working so I need some help. Thanks!

    btw - i did this:

    Please, use the theme preview at the Appearance > Themes page in this Peter Collins blog and check if the player appears in the preview of the single post view of the default theme (Kubrick or Twenty Ten).

    but it still showed the [display_podcast] in the preview:(

    also - i checked the 'activity' panel in Safari and compared it to the test site's activity and a whole section of the plugin load is missing on my site:

    my pages activity: http://frolab.com/misc/frolabpodpresserror.png

    ntm's test page activity: http://frolab.com/misc/testsitepodpress1.png, http://frolab.com/misc/testsitepodpress1.png

    @jelizen: The description of the problem which was discussed originally in this thread is like the problem you encounter on your blog. But the cause is a different one. The original problem was really related to the Thesis theme.
    The problem with the [display_podcast] place-holder on the single post views of your blog is somehow caused by an interaction of podPress and the Like plugin (the Facebook button plugin).
    That is why the problem was always there in the theme previews.

    I'm going to look into this and try to find out more about the cause.

    btw: Most of the additional activities on my test page are little pictures of the player preview of the .m4a test file in one of my posts.

    Regards,
    Tim

    I have looked into this matter a little bit further and it seems to me that it is more a problem of how podPress inserts its elements to the post content.
    I'm confident that I can fix this in the next two days and that the next podPress version. This version might also fix the problems with the Thesis themes. Both problem are probably not that different as thought at first.

    I will report back.

    Regards,

    podPress 8.8.6.2 should fix the problem which occurred while the e.g. Like plugin was active.
    It will maybe resolve the problem with the Thesis themes, too. But I'm not sure of it because I could not make tests with this theme.
    I would appreciate any report from tests with this theme and this podPress version. Thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Tim

    I already have podpress 8.8.4 installed on thesis.

    Looking at how to upgrade to 8.8.6.2 above.

    Unfortunately, PodPress in my Thesis install does NOT have an UPDATE button.
    So, is it safest to uninstall first, then install

    OR

    just install over top ???

    Don't want to break my 18 published podcasts already. ( I have enough work to do )

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, PodPress in my Thesis install does NOT have an UPDATE button.

    What did mean by update button? (Could you post a screen shot?) If your current podPress version is 8.8.4 then there should definitely be an update notification on the plugins page in the site admin part of your blog. These notifications are WP core functionality and works usually independently of the theme.
    The update notification has an link which is called automatic upgrade or so. That would be the way to upgrade the plugin.

    But you can also download the latest version of the plugin (currently v8.8.6.3) manually from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/podpress/download/ . Since you are using such a relative old version you should delete the old file before you upload the new ones.
    This method is basically what the automatic plugin upgrade of WP does. If you know how to handle your FTP program, you should not encounter a problem.

    After an upgrade of the plugin you should control the general and player settings. The widgets have also new options which you should control, too.

    Regards,
    Tim
