Status Update #1 (Progress is being made)

It’s been just over two weeks since I announced the show and launched this site, and I have made some progress since then.

I have worked out that I am going to build each site using Author Website in a Box as a base.  This is my very first “site in a Box” project, and it was the inspiration for this show. It uses my preferred page builder, and comes with most of the plugins required for any given site design.

The first site I will build is the site for this show. It took me a while to find a good podcasting plugin that I could bundle with the site, but now I have: Seriously Simple Podcasting

That plugin does everything I need, including embedding the audio player in post excerpts (an important design feature). And that’s great because it’s on my list of core features for the site.

BTW, I have also created a basic podcast cover for the show.

Next step: writing a show bible, and the script for the first episode.

audio test

This is a test of the HTML5 audio player.

this is a second test of the audio player; this time it’s the default WP feature.

Edit: One problem with the above audio players is that they do not show up in post excerpts, only in the actual post. So they are really of no use to me.
