Released: WordPress Sidebar Widget for Playing Podcasts

WordPress Podcast Player Sidebar Widget

If you’ve ever utilized the default RSS widget for WordPress and entered a Podcast RSS feed, you’ll notice that it only displays the title and description. That’s because the iTunes standard for podcast feeds adds additional tags for the image associated with a podcast as well as the location of the podcast file itself.

Despite WordPress having its own audio player, the two don’t work together… until now! I was pretty frustrated that I couldn’t have folks play the latest podcasts from my sidebar so I built and submitted a WordPress Plugin to do this. Today, the folks at WordPress approved the plugin and it was published in the repository.

Of course, you can also just search for the plugin via your Plugins page and install it from there. It’s a dead simple plugin that enables you to enter a Title for the sidebar section, enter your Podcast Feed, set the limit on how many podcasts you wish to display, as well as set the size of the image from the podcast. The WordPress default audio player is applied using their API function, wp_audio_shortcode.

You can see it in action on our sidebar!

Seasons

For sites like my own, the holiday season could look quite depressing as I review analytics. Overall traffic is down along with organic traffic as my audience shifts to holiday mode and begins to put off efforts until after the New Year. It’s also a time when I have to reassure both myself and my clients that we’re performing well despite the negatives we see on month-over-month or seasonal declines. Key to reassuring yourself is to utilize Google Trends as a benchmark to analyze your traffic to. Good friends of mine own an Indianapolis pest control company. As fall turns
