Support » Plugin: PowerPress Podcasting plugin by Blubrry » Insanely unintuitive settings

  • The settings section desperately needs an overhaul. It’s tab after tab of checkboxes that aren’t intuitive.

    If you show up on the settings section with a specific task in mind, expect to spend 30 minutes figuring out how to do that task. That’s a very bad sign — the most common use cases should be immediately visible, with less common use cases deeper in the settings section.

    The first two tabs are just a mishmash of promotion of BluBrry’s own items, like “Podcast Insider by Blubrry” and “Blubrry’s FREE Basic Statistics”. That sort of promotional stuff belongs at the BOTTOM.

    When you finally get to real settings on the third tab, vaguely named “website”, the second option is “Skip Media Verification”. Is that really your 2nd most common use-case? It’s just tab after tab, and menu after menu of checkboxes that don’t make sense at first read, and are rarely core features.

    Furthermore, they are in no discernable order. They’re not in order by popularity as they should be, nor are the even in alphabetical order. It’s pretty clear that settings and checkboxes are just added wherever.

    Very much due for a complete UX overhaul.

    Hi @severisth,

    We’re actually in the midst of a complete UX overhaul right now. We’re currently perfecting version 8.2 featuring our new episode box and will be doing a beta release of version 8.3, which features a redesign of the settings section, in the coming weeks. If you’d like to be one of the first to experience the new settings section, you can join our list of beta testers by contacting us here:
