Support » Plugin: PowerPress Podcasting plugin by Blubrry » Not showing up with Firefox Javascript Alert box with IE

  • Hi… I’ve just been told by several users that our websites podcasts are no longer showing up with the Firefox browser & getting popups with IE. We are using WP 3.6 and Version 5. I’ve test it out on several different browsers and Firefox doesn’t play at all and IE with weirdness. With IE when I click the play button a javascript alert box comes up and says [objectHTMLAudioElement]. Pressing OK makes it go away but audio doesn’t start. Pressing play again starts as normal without alert box.

    This will be fixed in the next release of PowerPress.

    This is an issue with the new mediaelement.js player and PowerPress. To get by for the next couple of days until we release 5.0.1, you could use one of the other player options in PowerPress. Or if you cannot wait, let me know and I’ll send instructions how to install the development version.

    Hi Angelo… thanks for the quick response. Yes if you could send instructions on installing the development version I could use that. We have a couple sponsored podcasts that I need to get numbers back to people and can’t do it with the other player I installed as a quick fix.

    Just wanted to report back that the new version fixed it!
