    LOVE podpress.

    Unfortunately, the upgrade caused one weird glitch - "Download Standard Podcast" has been tacked onto the front of our itunes episode descriptions. We've been posting shows to iTunes using podpress for a long time, and this has never happened before 'til the upgrade.

    Itunes URL: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-expert-witness-radio-show/id376527401

    Thanks for the good report!

    I have already tested a little bit and I'm pretty sure that the problem has something to do with a filter which influences the content of the posts.

    Which method do you use to place the player and the links of podPress in the posts? Do you use the [display_podcast] place-holder?

    If you do not use the place holder then try set the option General Settings (of podPress) / Post Content / Location: to "End". That will probably attach "Download Standard Podcast" to the end of the iTunes:summary.

    But it would be helpful for me if could tell me what this option was set to so far (and whether or not you are using the place-holder).

    Regards,
    Tim

    Hey Tim!

    Nope - we're not using the placeholder. Just using the standard media insert (see screenshot: http://www.expertwitnessradio.org/expertss.png ).

    We do have it at the start, because out posts can be lengthy - we don't want folks having trouble finding the podcast, and we want them to be able to play the podcast as they're reading.

    I did temporarily disable the download text from the options screen. We'll see what happens. Bu tin the meantime, if you come up with a fix, please let us know!

    Thanks much, and thanks again for a GREAT plug-in.

    Two more questions:
    What is your iTunes:summary (and subtitle) setting in the "Post specific settings for iTunes:" (in the podPress box below the post editor)?
    Do you write excerpts for the posts manually?

    Yes, I think about a fix and I will let you know when I have something new.

    They are both set to "use the excerpt" - and nope - we don't excerpt manually. Hope this helps!

    Please, install the current Development Version (8.8.10.8 beta 4) which will correct the problem.
