Support » Plugin: PowerPress Podcasting plugin by Blubrry » Applies itself to every post_type by default

  • Wow. How ridiculous is it that users are forced to install a roles plugin to correct the plugin applying itself automatically to every post type. Every page, every image, every CPT is now a possible podcast. Disappointing.

    This is also the case natively with WordPress. If you disable PowerPress, put links to media in your blog posts, WordPress will create an enclosure for it, making it a podcast episode. Every post type that has a type “post” or “page” has this behavior, PowerPress or not.

    I just double checked, PowerPress is not adding episode entry boxes to post types of type media, image or others. It only adds the podcast episode box to post types of type “page” and “post”.

    I’m sorry you’re not accomplishing what you want out of the box with our plugin, but in order to manage this at such a granular level you need something to manage which users have what roles and capabilities. There are a number of plugins already written to manage which users have what roles and what capabilities are in each role, it does not make sense to have that built into the podcasting plugin.

    I would appreciate the opportunity to change your 1 star rating of our plugin. Please email me, cio [at] rawvoice dot com to discuss further. Hopefully following our conversation I will learn how we can explain this better in the plugin, I’ll learn what your needs are and the process will hopefully change your negative impression of this powerful and quite capable podcasting plugin.
