Support » Plugin: Podbean Shortcode » Doesn’t Work

  • The shortcode does not work. However, the standard iFrame code does work just fine.

    The biggest issue I have is that it does not fully integrate with your Podbean account making the switch over seamless. You have to update each and every episode manually. In my case, that’s 700 episodes.

    There is no support in the players for subscribing either by iTunes, Google Play, RSS feed readers or even email.

    Granted, Podbean has come a long way since it’s earliest days and is still the most affordable solution for heavy podcasters such as myself who do not generate a ton a money.

    Nevertheless, I have a brand and my own site. I choose not use the Podbean default ecosystem and themes. I want more control. Since WordPress is the largest blogging platform out there, it would be in their best interest to support a player for this platform that’s fully integrated.

    For now, I’ll stick with Podbean as my host and continue to use the free PowerPress player, which has its own issues, even when you’re a subscriber to Blubrry’s overpriced low-data hosting plans.

    Their truly is no great solution for podcast players out there, though PowerPress comes the closest.
