Request for Plugin 'Serious Simple Podcasting'
Joseph Cohen, Associate Professor of Sociology at Queens College and co-Director of the Queens Podcast Lab., writes "we have maintained our [podcasting] site for over five years (queenspodcastlab.org) and are now able to migrate it onto the Commons..."
The plugin formats RSS feeds to administer multiple podcasts, synchronize podcast uploads with the Castos platform, creates a unique interface for podcast episodes so as to allow customized metadata
Last updated three weeks ago. The official plugin of a well-established podcast service hosting provider. Joseph says he has used this plugin on his non-commons websites for five years.
How is the plugin/theme different from what's already provided on the Commons?
Joseph writes: "Commons currently offers Blubrry, the official plugin of a competing commercial provider. This plugin allows for the administration of multiple podcasts from an easy-to-use site, integration with Castos hosting, and an interface that makes it easier for interns and students to distinguish textual from podcast content when working on the site's back end. Blubrry has less functionality and a much poorer UX that my interns have reacted to poorly in the past.
