Will it possible to create a second feed off the podcast plugin for iTunes? There's a different set of variables that are required.

See here.

It will be possible for a plugin to insert any arbitrary tags into any feed, at the meta level, or item level.

So it'll be pretty easy for a podcasting plugin to insert RSS 2.0 enclosures and iTunes extensions

There are so many settings for a podcast RSS and especially for iTunes, that the plugin for Geeklog probably would be quite complex.

I think the best solution for the time being (and maybe longer) is to install loudblog http://loudblog.de/index.php and include it with an iframe into geeklog. Works very well.

Well 1.4.1 is out now. I`m curious when the plugin will be out then.

I redesigned the output theme of loudblog to match closer the looks of GL: http://www.taftgel.de/index.php?topic=Hrproben If you click RSS-Feed you will see it opens in an iframe.

Loudblog is really nice and works well.

I now have a working podcast plugin for Geeklog 1.4.0 and above.

The plugin is an early version, it doesn't have a lot of polish and detail, and is not tested ready for production use, but I am looking for people interested in helping test it out.

Drop me a reply here, or a pm, or an email and I'll send you what I have with a limited set of instructions and you can have a play.

The plugin creates a fully validated RSS 2.0 with Enclosures feed with all iTunes extensions.

I'm fairly certain the extra variables wouldn't hurt a normal podcast RSS, so a second feed would be unnecessary. Properly-designed podcast players won't be thrown off by the extras.

I'm eager to see this plugin, as I've been tossing around doing a podcast for one of my Geeklog sites.

(Edit: Sorry for the redunancy with the other replies; I guess I misread them at first)

I would love to give it a try.

I'll post up the podcast plugin. It works fully, could do with a little finessing and some more features adding though.

hey Tampano! I've been using libsyn.com for two years now, it's a podcast network and it allows you to embed mp3 players really easy, it's all in their menu. Check it out, it might work for you! Jake, an old marine engineer.

Isn't it a breach of the GPL contract that you've removed the "Powered by Geeklog" statement (nor replaced it with something similar)?


No. The GPL only has any effect over Geeklog if you give it to someone else. If you do, you have to pass on a copy of the GPL, the source code (irrelevant since php IS the source code), and relicense all of your changes under the GPL.
Now, the professional theme is licensed under the GPL, but a theme MAY be licensed under something like CC-attribution or CC-noncom. Implementing an API isn't creating a derivative work (assuming it's from scratch), so whatever a theme creator would like to license it under is their own deal - you just have to follow the terms they lay down.
