  • Found the source of the duplicate podcast feed items
    Line 430 of sermon-manager-for-wordpress/includes/template-tags.php
    Currently if (is_archive() || is_search() ) {
    Change to if (!is_feed() && ( is_archive() || is_search() ) ) {

    In short Line 25 of sermon-manager-for-wordpress/includes/template-tags.php is causing the excerpt to be repeatedly added to podcast description field. Possibly other post types as well.

    Also, the podcast feed will not validate on an https site. As the spec requires that the audio files be http. If the podcast feed generator could auto convert the audio links from https into http that would be great for my site validating.

    The root of the breaking change for sermon excerpts is the migration to a class. As a result of that move a custom excerpt cannot access the $this object. Thus it is unable to access several of the required fields. I suspect that the solution will look something like this but haven’t figured out the details yet.

    Perhaps you are able to help me out @antgiant.

    For the past couple of versions the preachers name hasn’t shown on the pages where it should. Also, when I go into edit a sermon there is no preacher name, series, bible book shown even through its all put in and appears in the database.

    @andyjimmy Sounds to me like a theme or customization issue to me. Doing any customizations? I would suggest trying a different theme in a testing environment and seeing if that fixes anything.

    @antgiant – thanks for this.

    The podcast feed on my site broke after the upgrade to 2.0 ( said the problem was the feed was about 7MB rather than <512kb). Your patch seems to have fixed that.

    @antgiant – turns out it was one of my plugins “Anything Order” that was causing the issue. Thanks for reminding me think outside of the physical code that I was working with 🙂

    @funkydan2 & @andyjimmy Glad to hear it is working for you.

    Thanks @antgiant, your patch fixed our broken sermons feed file.
