Support » Plugin: Seriously Simple Podcasting » Content Template being ignored

  • stephendew



    I have a problem with SSP and my theme.

    I am trying to set a content template for Podcast Series. However the /podcast page will only ever display the template set for all Archive pages.

    I have tried checking that there are no conflicting WordPress categories of the same name. Tried updating permalinks. And I have tried everything I can to swap out and test it, however, I can’t find the solution to my issue.

    This sounds like a similar issue raised in this forum post: However I have already disabled all Podcast post types.

    Please help,

    Hi @stephendew

    Thanks for the message and the details here. In looking at your site it seems that your /podcast page is showing the same kind of layout as other archive pages (such as Have you created a new custom page template yet that you want to use on the Series page? If not then walks through that.

    If so and it’s a matter of the page not rendering the proper template please let us know so we can dig into things further. We’ve used in the past to help determine which theme files are being used on which pages during troubleshooting like this. Might be helpful.

    Hi Craig,

    Thanks for getting back to me, I’m still stuck with this.

    I have created an archive-podcast.php file and I have installed the Which Template File plugin and for the archives page it’s showing archives.php and for the podcast archives, it is showing archive-podcast.php – so it seems to be set up ok.

    The design of the podcast series page has been done in the “Page Templates” section of the theme – do you think this could be a theme issue and maybe something in archive-podcast.php needs changing?

    Thanks for your help in advance,

    Hi @stephendew thanks for the updates here. Yes, in order for the contents of the /podcast (or Series) pages you’ll need to modify the contents of the archive-podcast.php page to reflect the content/style changes you’re looking for. I don’t believe most themes will give you the ability to modify those page templates from the wp-admin dashboard. It’ll be actual code level changes in your theme that you’ll need to do.
