    Hello! lovely plugin for what we need, however it wont show more than one episode from an podcast author and mashed with other sidebar elements? I can send a website if needed. Thanks!

    Hi

    website/link would be a start (and ideally a screenshot of your settings with id etc) sent to dev[at]1000db.com so i know exactly what your settings are

    thanks

    got your email and works just fine on my installs.

    a few issues though:
    your theme throws a bunch of errors.
    either turn of debug or fix them (get them fixed rather as it appears to be a paid theme from what i can see)

    for starters just go here:

    secondly, as the id you are using only has one podcast, it will only display one podcast. I hazard a guess you are using the wrong id (even the link you sent me directly to itunes with that id only displays this one podcast so I am not sure how you expect to get more than that single one ...?! i might of course misunderstand things. feel free to elaborate)

    HI again,

    unfortunately, the iTunes API treats podcasts as tracks, so no "episodes" in this case get returned I could use to make a tracklist for this podcast.

    essentially , using the id you are using, the query that gets run against the api is this

    https://itunes.apple.com/lookup?id=483226561

    if you execute this in your browser, you'll see that only one "track" of type "podcast" gets returned and no other episodes (i.e tracklist)

    sorry, but there's nothing i can do as that's just the way the iTunes API handles things. (nope, doesn't make sense to me either but what can i do)....

    maybe someone can come up with a query with an ID that DOES return the episodes of a podcast too and I'd happily change the plugin accordingly, but for the moment I have to mark this as resolved as in "cannot fix" as the API does not return any of this info...:(
