Blubrry PowerPress 5.0

Blubrry PowerPress was updated to version 5.0, from version 4.0.9. Changelog:

  • Advanced Mode added (Was an old feature in PowerPress 1.0 that was removed since 2.0, now it’s back!)
  • Default Mode with 3 Simple Steps added!
  • Taxonomy Podcasting added
  • Post Type Podcasting added
  • MediaElement.js HTML5/CSS Audio and Video player added. You must have WordPress 3.6+ to use this player.
  • Embed player will now use the MediaElement.js player when selected
  • We now allow images that are 300×300 as the itunes image, but a warning is printed at the top of the page.
  • Fixed bug where settings saved message did not always appear at the top of the pages.
  • Added define POWERPRESS_NO_PODCAST_FEED, if set to true in wp-config, PowerPress will not add the default podcast feed with slug name ‘podcast’. For users who exclusively want a page or category called ‘podcast’. NOTE: There will be no podcast only feed provided by default when this define is set, use at your own risk.
  • iTunes and RSS image settings moved to “Artwork” tab.
  • New iTunes Episode image option added to both the Artwork tab as well as the Episode Entry Box
  • jQuery based watermark replaced with HTML5 placeholder values, the jquery.watermark.js is no longer packaged with PowerPress.
  • Fixed bug with Feed Episode Maximizer RSS having the invalid characters when used with WordPRess 3.6.
  • Feed Episode Maximizer is no longer experimental, we’ve successfully used the feature on a number of podcasts without issue for over a year now.
  • Player width for audio and video can now use a percentage, ideal for resposive sites.
  • player.js script is now always enqueued with other WordPress scripts. If you have player issues, please update your theme!
  • Added link to settings from the plugins management screen, should help folks who are new to PowerPress find settings quickly.
