    I’m liking this new version, but I’ve got some questions, problems and suggestions.

    1. I don’t understand what the subscribe “menu” functionality is. Can you explain?

    2. Most of the show/hide options are always hidden in the collapsed section of the player. I’d like an option to have it open by default. Otherwise, all the other options are mostly useless, as most people will never even notice there is something to open up.

    3. When opened, the title is displayed twice, which looks pretty silly, and title is not one of the hideable options.

    4. I’d love an option to hide the links to the individual episode pages. We don’t specify individual episode pages in the feed, so it always just takes the user back to the main screen of the show, which is very confusing.

    Hope this is helpful. Thanks for the great plugin.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for taking your time and giving your valuable feedback.

    Most of the options available in new version are carry forwarded from the previous version. I understand that these options needs to be refined (which I will do in next version).

    my reply to your points,

    1. With this option, you can assign any menu (created in appearance > Menus) to your podcast player. The menu item links will be displayed below podcast description. If no menu is assigned, it will simply show podcast website link and podcast RSS feed url. (I think Subscribe Menu name is creating confusion, will change in next version).

    2. I have purposely hide these items by default to make the player clutter free. I think showing too many items might confuse the end-user who just want to listen some podcast episodes. Also returning user might not want to see those podcast level details (as they might already know about it). However, You are right that I should provide an option to always display header area to let plugin user decide. Will try to do that in next version.

    3. Actually the top most title (visible by default) will be truncated (if it is very long) to fit in one single line. However, full title will displayed in the collapsed section. You are right that a hide title option should be given. Will add this as well.

    4. After testing with many feeds, I also think that this link is not required and creating unnecessary confusion. I will remove it entirely.

    Again, thanks for your feedback.
