Developer Proposes Fix For PodPress/WordPress IncompatibilitiesAug 1st, 2008 | By James Lewin | Category: Podcasting Software
WordPress creator Matt Mullenweg let us know about a new development in the WordPress 2.6/PodPress meltdown.
“Two WordPress developers have volunteered fixes for both the 8.8 and 8.9 branches of PodPress,” says Mullenweg. “It’s only a few lines of code to cure the problem.”
The unofficial fixes are available at developer Andrew Ozz’s blog, and they look like they would be straightforward to apply.
It’s great to see the WordPress community working to quickly address this problem, but the situation still raises concerns. At this point, podcasters using WordPress don’t have a supported platform and have to do some hacking to keep their sites working.
For developers like Mullenweg and tech-savvy first adopters, this isn’t much of a problem. For people that just want to make a podcast, though, it’s a big deal.
