The popular blogging platform WordPress has proven to be also rather popular with podcasters. However, the system itself is not particularly made for podcasting and while some things are easy, other things are rather complicated and error-prone.
Therefore a variety of plugins want to improve on this and want to make life easier for podcasters. But all of them are tying too much into the conventions and workflows of WordPress that are not always doing what a podcaster needs.
The Podlove Podcast Publisher tries to solve the problem from the podcasters’ perspective and implements a variety of features and workflows that have been rather difficult to achieve with WordPress until now. The plugin makes the process easier by settling on a few common conventions to make publishing and maintaining podcast feeds a snap and highly reliable.
The plugin is currently in Beta and still under heavy development.
Podlove publisher an open collaborative effort and you find the current development on github:
The plugin currently requires PHP 5.3 and WordPress 3.x. We might raise this limits as things progress to be able to embrace upcoming features of PHP and/or WordPress and to cut off outdated technology that keeps things from improving and is usually prone to additional security risks.
We provide updates through the WordPress plugin directory so you can keep your installation up-to-date easily.
Feel free to contribute and to fix errors or send improvements via github.
