Podpress player doesn't show in post (34 posts)

    Podpress player will show in excerpts, but not in the post content. Adding [display_podcast] doesn't work either. I use Arras Theme, and everything worked fine until I upgraded podpress.

    Podpress player will show in excerpts, but not in the post content.

    Is the download link and the other elements which are typically displayed below the player also not visible in posts?
    Which web browser did you use? Safari, Chrome, IE9 or Firefox?

    Go to the general settings page of podPress. Does the section "System Information" include any hint of a version conflict?

    I would like to take a look at your blog myself. Could you post the URL to your blog?

    Regards,
    Tim

    Okay, I can reproduce the problem. Please, try the Development Version. It includes a bug fix.

    Thanks for the report!

    Sorry, I thought I had put my site in my post. http://www.classicgamerbrain.com

    I tried the development version, but it didn't fix the issue.

    Thank you for the quick replies!

    So... to further answer... All elements of podpress don't show in the post. Any changes made in the podpress settings are reflected in excerpts, but nothing allows podpress to show in the posts. I also tested firefox and IE, and it still doesn't show. Also, I deleted podpress manually and reinstalled the development version manually again. Still didn't work, and no sign of a version conflict.

    @franky1029: Thank you for the further answers.
    @T: Thank you for your report too. (If roll-back to 8.8.10.4 then check whether or not your RSS feeds are valid. if they are not valid use 8.8.10.2)

    I know that it this particular problem is not a browser issue. It has something to do with the way podPress adds its elements to posts and excerpts.

    But it is a little bit surprising for me that 8.8.10.7 beta 3 does not fix the problem while 8.8.10.4 does it.
    But 8.8.10.7 beta 3 is not the final version. I'm working on it.

    podPress 8.8.10.7 beta 4 is now the Development Version.

    I have tested this version with the Arras theme and it seems to work. The players are visible at the front page which shows excerpts and they are also visible on the single post view.

    Regards,
    Tim

    Still no luck. Perhaps there is something wrong with my theme. I'll see if I can look into that some more.

    I am having the same problem. Should I try the development version or go back a version?

    http://edreach.us/2011/05/16/edceptional-show-09/

    Quick question : to install the development version, can I use the automatic uploader or do I have to go into my directory?

    I tried the Dev version beta 4, and then downgraded to 8.8.10.5 .

    Both of them didn't work.

    Help!!!

    8.8.10.4 should work until the issue is resolved.

    @franky1029: I have tested with the default settings of the Arras Theme and after some modifications the player appeared again in the excerpts in the "Featured Stories" section and the automatically changing display of these Featured Stories. Further the player appears in the single post views. The player does not appear in the category views. In a way, it is like on your website.
    Maybe I don't understand what is not working. Please, tell me (again) what is not working with 8.8.10.7 beta 4.

    @drezac: Daniel, please describe the problem which exists with beta 4 on your page. It is possible that it is not the same as on the page of franky1029. Check whether the problem is connected to the usage of a certain web browser (Does work in Firefox and in Safari or Chrome?). Notice: If roll-back to 8.8.10.4 then check whether or not your RSS feeds are valid. If they are not valid use 8.8.10.2.
    Furthermore please do not use a plugin to install the Development Version. Use FTP to upload at least the .php and .css files from the main folder and the JS sub folder.

    Tim

    @franky1029: I have compared the behaviour of 8.8.10.5 and 8.8.10.7 beta 4 once again and while 8.8.10.5 does not show the player elements in the single post view, 8.8.10.7 beta 4 does it. In post in which I use the [display_podcast] place holder 8.8.10.5 does not replace it and shows no player. 8.8.10.7 behaves differently and replace the place holder with the player and the link elements below it.
    This reproducible and that is why I think that we are talking not about the same problem.
    Furthermore I have written earlier that I was surprise that this other beta version showed no difference. I was surprised because in that earlier beta version I have reversed the changes in the function which inserts the podPress elements into the posts and excerpts so that it looked like the function in 8.8.10.2. It should have worked again.
    8.8.10.7 beta 4 uses now a different approach to solve this and a different problem which appeared with 8.8.10.2 e.g. in the Kubrick theme (the old default theme). But it shows also the podPress elements in the single post view.
    Are you using a cache plugin or something else what could prevent modification from showing up immediately?
    Or do the podPress elements appear (with 8.8.10.7 beta 4) in the single post view in your blog too and something else is not working?

    No, everything works perfectly fine, but with 8.8.10.5 and above the player wont show in the single post view. This is the only problem. Actually, I didn't turn off the html5 feature with beta 4, should I have tried that?

    If you look at my site now, I'm running 8.8.10.4 (so I can have it working in the mean time). When you have new betas, I'll be glad to test them out, though.

    but with 8.8.10.5 and above the player wont show in the single post view.

    Do you mean with "the player" the player and the link elements below the player or only the player?

    Actually, I didn't turn off the html5 feature with beta 4, should I have tried that?

    If only the player does not appear then try it. But in the other case it will probably make no difference. Although 8.8.10.3-8.8.10.6 have a minor bug which prevents appearance of the HTML5 player in the IE9 browser. The other browser seem to be more tolerant.

    I reverted back to 8.10.4 and the player has returned in the posts.

    In the latest DEV version the player did show up in the summaries, though. LEt me know when you think I can upgrade.

    franky1029 and Daniel thank you for testing the last beta version. Now, I have tested myself a little bit and I have a further idea on how-to fix this particular problem. I will let you know when the patch is ready.

    I have made further changes and they are all in the current Development Version (8.8.10.7 beta 5).

    Last time I have tested the modifications only with posts which have an excerpt. That was not intentional but I have noticed my mistake not until your last reports.
    This time I have tested the modifications with post with an excerpt and posts without an excerpt.

    Anyway, it would be great if you could test once more the new beta version.

    Thanks for your patience,
    Tim

    Hi Tim,
    how can I install the development version? Downloaded it, uploaded it to my plugins, but got this error:

    Destination folder already exists. .../html/wp-content/plugins/podpress/
    
    Plugin install failed.

    Thanks

    Hi bamboobee,

    it is probably like the message says: the old version of podpress is still installed in your blog and at least the folder of the plugin still exists (...html/wp-content/plugins/podpress/). The cause of the message is maybe that the installation function is not able or not allowed to delete or replace the old files and folders of the plugin.
    (Sometimes scripts like WP are not allowed to do such actions.)

    I would say that you probably need to remove the old files and upload the new ones via FTP.

    Regards,
    Tim

    Tim-

    On a related note, when I upgraded my feed is coming back with this error:

    error on line 364 at column 274: EntityRef: expecting ';'

    I reverted back to 8.8.10.4 and though our feed is showing up in Google Reader, iTunes hasn't updated all week.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I also checked my feed in iTunes to try to validate, and suddenly I'm getting this:

    line 282, column 128: XML parsing error: <unknown>:282:128: not well-formed (invalid token) [help]

    This might be what's not allowing iTunes to update with the most recent podcasts.

    Okay-
    Updated to latest DEV version. The Feed is validating.

    Also- the player is there, but it disappears when I check Use HTML Tags. For now, I have to keep that unchecked. I quite liked that feature.

    That seems to be the only problem right now.

    @franky1029 and Daniel: These basically good news. I'm relieved to hear that nearly problems are resolved.

    Thanks to you both for your patience and for testing all those beta version!

    @Daniel:

    Also- the player is there, but it disappears when I check Use HTML Tags.

    Does only the player or the player and the links below the player disappear when use activate the "Use HTML5 Tags" option?
    Which browser do you use? (Safari?, Chrome?, IE9?)

    Most web browser have something called error console. That error console (might have in some browsers a different name) shows you all HTML and Javascript errors of a web page.
    Please, activate the HTML5 tags, open one of the blog posts with a podcast episode in the browser, open the error console clear its existing content and reload the blog page.
    Which errors do you see in the error console?

    (If you would leave that HTML5 option active or activate it for an hour or two I could see myself what the problem is. I'm the next hours in front a computer with an Internet connection and ready to do that.)
