Podcast Archive. How can I make it show more than just that like I put some text inside the podcast page. Can I make that show???
Hi there, just to be sure, you don’t seem to have purchased Podcaster using this account. Please log into the account you used to make the purchase so I can attend to this support request properly. Thanks!
Hello! I was hoping that there is a way to add a side bar or widgets to the home page. Is there a way to do that?
Other than that, I am LOVING the theme! After lots of searching for something that works for our shows, it’s great to have something that looks good and is easy to navigate.
Hi there, I’m happy you hear you’re loving the theme! As for the sidebar on the home page, there is no easy way of doing this at the moment, unfortunately. I’m looking to add an alternative template that comes with sidebars for the front page in the next update however. So stay tuned!
Thank you! This is a major thing for us. Can you give me a timeline for this update? We might need to switch themes in the meantime. We’ve seen major drops in subscribers to our podcast since we can’t add subscription buttons to the main page.
Hi there, there is an update lined up that should be out sometime today or early tomorrow. Two new templates have been included to support sidebars on the front page since this was a highly requested featured from others as well. This should give you the option to put widgets on the front page as well. Do keep in mind that you can display subscribe buttons on the featured header as well. I hope this helps!
Hi there! Thanks for the update! I’ve been trying to figure out how to make the sidebar appear? I did the update, added content to the Front Page Side Bar area in the Widgets section, but it’s still showing the old static front page with no sidebar. Is there a setting somewhere to activate it?
Hey there, the new sidebar options have been set up as page templates. Simply edit your current “Front Page” page and select Front Page (Left Sidebar) or Front Page (Right Sidebar) from the template drop down box. Then save.
After that you can then go to Theme Options > Front Page > Front Page Entry Corners or > Front Page Sidebar Corners to select what corners you would like to use on your posts as well as the sidebar widgets.
I hope this works for you!
AMAZING! IT TOTALLY WORKED!!! BEST THEME EVER!!!!! I have been looking for years and never got all the features/look I wanted. This update has made me so happy!
Oh! Any chance we can get a Twitch icon added to the social media listings or an add-custom?
Happy to hear it’s working for you! The Twitch icon request has been noted!
I’ve asked a similar question to this one previously but on my post pages to the right side of the page is this message (This is your single post widget area. Please go to Appearance > Widgets to add new widgets). How do I get rid of it? On pages I have an option for “full width page”, this isn’t an option on the podcast page.
Hello, sorry about that. Could you send me a link of the page with the sidebar you would like to remove. Just so I can take a closer look at what you’re seeing on your end? Thanks!
Thank you for the quick response. This link should take you too one of the pages with the problem http://reel9.com/episode-4-dario-argento/
Hi there, thanks for the links. You can change the layout (sidebars left, right or none) within the theme options under Blog > Main Layout. This will hide the sidebar on both your blog as well as your single pages. Now, I’m guessing you’re trying to hide it on single pages only, right? Do let me know and I’ll see if I can give you pointers on how to do this. But do keep in mind that you can only change the layout for both the blog page and single pages at the same time. They do not have separate settings.
It worked great, thank you for the help.
So sorry to bother you again and too be honest it my ignorance but I created an app for the website. how do I put download and instructions on the main page?
Hey there, don’t worry about it! You could use the rich text area in the footer to add the links and download instructions. If the instructions are longer, you could create a separate page and link back to it from there. I hope this makes sense!
Hello, and thanks for the awesome theme!
Quick question – I’m using “template preset N3”, is there a way to use an image with caption for the home page slider area instead of the latest episode? Similar to the “Classic” theme with image/text header.
Hi there, happy to hear you’re enjoying Podcaster. As for the image with a caption header: you can do this by going to Theme Options > Front Page Header > Header Type and selecting “Text”. After that you can add text below and add an image by going to the “Backgrounds” sub-section. You can edit the padding there as well, to make the header bigger or smaller.
I hope this answers your question!
We’re using your theme and RSS plugin on our new podcast.
Everything’s running smoothly, except I noticed today that the feed is only showing the six latest podcasts. I can’t see any settings to change this, but I’m not sure why it’s happening.
This is using Version 1.4.1 of the Theme Station Podcasting Feed plugin.
Please can you help us resolve this issue?
Ah, I’ve found the source of the problem.
The Theme Station Podcasting Feed plugin reads from the wordpress Reading Settings. If your feed is being limited too, look at the “Syndication feeds show the most recent” option under Settings > Reading Settings. Ours was set to six. Change this to your preferred limit.
Alternatively, the plugin reads that number using the get_option(‘posts_per_rss’) function. In the thst-feed.php file, change line 266 and 272 from ”’posts_per_page’ => $rss_posts” to ”’posts_per_page’ => -1”. This will remove the limit regardless of what your Reading Settings are.
Hey there, I see you managed to figure out the issue. I’ll take it the question is answered and I can disregard your email.
Sounds good to me!
How can I make my homepage image large as per your demo? The website is zwiftcast.com
Have you set a static front page and made featured podcast posts? You can find out how to do this by following the instructions within the “Getting Started” section of the documentation. (http://themestation.co/documentation/podcaster/#getting-started) Let me know if this helps for you.
Hi, I’m seeing an issue with the homepage static text (below nav) on screens with max-width 480px. I tried fixing with custom CSS, but I can’t seem to figure it out. The static text is bleeding into the social bar above. Again, this only appears on mobile devices. You can test on your mobile device at https://keepingitrealpod.com. Can you send me the CSS fix to move the text down for that screen width only? Thanks!
Hey thanks for the feedback, this is being looked into!
Hello, I would like to ask: in this theme is it possible to add a PDF file to every podcast so that a user could download it?
Hi there, you should be able to upload a PDF file and link to it in your text, just like you would to any other link. Is this what you mean?
Is there any way to have the dark theme on the home page and the classic on the podcast/blog page?
Hi there, unfortunately not through the theme settings alone. If you use custom CSS and your child theme, you could get it done.
Here are some issues:
the subscribe buttons css on the main page with the next-week class. At md and lg breakpoints the buttons are floated all the way left instead of center.
There is an also an issue with i think md and lg breakpoints if you use an image for the logo. it doesn’t resize the image and it instead goes as large as possible and looks terrible.
I’m also getting an error in podcast posts saying: Fatal error: Call to undefined function SSP_Speakers() in
Hello, thanks for the feedback this is being looked into.
just wanted to ask some questions before buying:
a) I see the three versions of Podcaster are similar but with some good differences, mainly in terms of colors and menu mobility: do I have to choose one preset or can I mix those features as I prefer?
b) Many people asked about the homepage player when audio files are stored outside the server where WordPress is installed. Your usual reply is to check direct access to the raw file. I use Archive.org, which allows any user – not only me – to access the .ogg/.mp3 file to be downloaded freely: is that all I need or am I missing something?
c) What’s the difference between podcast library and a simple blog category? (The category archive page in the live demo shows me a column with “recent posts”, which contains nothing but the podcast library)
d) How possible (and easy) is to translate some of the buttons/titles (i.e. “Recent Posts”, “Recent Comments”, the “Listen” button, etc.) and what would you recommend in order to do it properly (child-theme? Other options?)
e) Is there test version or a way to enter the back end and make some minor editing to the theme (just to see how it works)?
Thank you very much.
Hello, thanks for your interest in the theme! I’ll get right to your questions:
a) The features can be mixed and matched as you please, the demos are merely examples for what can be set up.
b) Yes, that is all you need, nothing more.
c) The difference is merely the layout, both pull up the episodes by category, so if you prefer that layout to the podcast library, you can use that one as well.
d) Podcaster comes translation-ready, but you have to do the translation yourself. You can create custom translation files using a software such as PoEdit.
e) Unfortunately no, there is no backend demo as of now, I’m afraid. But if you have any more specific questions about the theme options, I’d be happy to give an answer.
I hope this answers all your questions
Perfect, thanks very much indeed!
hi! I wonder how to change the Itunes Link and RSS Link on the header, i put links on the theme option but it doesnt work. it only shows/redirect to the homepage, please help.
Hey there, sorry to hear about that. Could you send me a URL so I can take a closer look at what you are looking at on your end. You can send it to email@example.com and I’d be happy to take a look.
Hi, I have resolved it already. My question now is how to change the header into reaponsive fullscreen. I want my listeners to be greeted with a simpler full screen latest episode. And another, how to put skip/back icon in the player as well as download button.similar to smart podcast player. I really love the theme and it’s just the player that somehow bothers me.
Hey there, it looks like the shortcode plugin you’re trying to use isn’t supported as of now. I’m looking into this and will get back to you. Thanks for your patience.
