    Hi Mike,

    Yes, SSP uses a ‘podcast’ custom post type with a ‘series’ custom taxonomy.

    Cheers,
    Hugh

    Hey Hugh,

    So that’s the default setup, but I mean support for creating of new CPT’s to be used for podcasting.

    It seems no, as I am looking at the plugin.

    Maybe I’ll add that 🙂

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I’m not sure why you would need to create new CPT’s for podcasting seeing as though the plugin already contains all the support for it, but you can always use WP’s built-in functions to create new CPTs – there’s no need to support that in a plugin (unless you have a use case that I haven’t thought of).

    Hey Hugh,

    Mostly because I want my podcast to live at /shows/ not at /podcast/

    The plugin would have to add the additional meta data fields to that CPT if I were to create it, no?

    You don’t need to create a new CPT for that. Simply go to Podcast > Settings in your dashboard and change the “URL slug for podcast pages” field, then resave your site’s permalinks. Once you’ve done that your podcast will be available at the slug that you specify.

    Ah, yes. I see that.

    Hey, have you found when WordPress updates that your plugin breaks at all, perhaps causing a downtime in the feed to iTunes? My post-producer was saying that’s why everyone uses PowerPress.

    Also, I am wanting to extend the CPT with additional fields, do you see that being a problem?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    I haven’t had any problems from WP updates breaking this plugin and haven’t had any reports of down time. I shouldn’t think that would be a problem for any plugin actually so it’s not really a reason to use (or not use) any particular plugin.

    If you want to add custom fields to the podcast CPT then you can use the ss_podcasting_episode_fields filter as defined in the main class.
