Podcaster's updated documentation coming soon!

Introduction

Welcome to the documentation file for Podcaster. Podcaster is made with publishing and managing multimedia files using WordPress in mind. It supports WordPress native audio and video players as well as oEmbed. Set up a small or large podcasting website in a matter of minutes. Podcaster is completely responsive and retina-ready. Let your users view your website whether they are at their desk or out and about. It comes with a lot of features made to enhance your podcasting experience as well as allow you to customize to suit your needs. In the theme options choose between dark or light templates and custom colors to match your personal taste and content of your blog. Podcaster supports all post formats including audio, video, images, galleries, chat and more.

The documentation below is meant to guide you through installing and setting up your theme. If you have any further questions and would like to send a support request please do it at the Podcaster support page.

 

Updated your Podcaster to 2.0 and can't see your players? Please check that Podcaster Media is updated to version 1.3. You can check/update the plugin by going to Plugins > Installed Plugins. Find it in the list and click on the update link.

Installation

Installing Podcaster is just as simple and quick as any other WordPress theme. Make sure you are running WordPress version 4.9 or higher. If you have never installed a WordPress theme before, take a look at the following link: Using WordPress Themes. Otherwise there are two ways to install Podcaster.

Installing via Dashboard

  • Go to Appearance → Themes
  • Go to Install Themes → Upload Theme
  • Choose file (podcaster.zip) → Click on "Install Now"
  • Activate

Make sure you upload on the theme file called podcaster.zip and not the entire package downloaded from Themeforest. Uploading the entire theme package will lead to the "Missing style.css stylesheet" error.

Installing via FTP

If you want to use FTP to install your theme make sure you unzip podcaster.zip beforehand. Then upload it to wp-content/themes. Head to the WordPress dashboard to activate it and you’re ready. Read more about installing with FTP here: Adding New Themes Manually (FTP)

Getting Started

Setting up Podcaster can be simple and quick, and it is recommended you follow the steps below to get up and running.

  1. Install Recommended Plugins
  2. Import Demo Data (One Click)
  3. (Optional: Set Static Front Page/Blog)
  4. Set Podcast Archive Category

Required Plugins

After sucessfully installing Podcaster, please install the following plugins:

  • Envato Market
  • Redux Framework
  • CMB 2
  • Podcaster Media
  • Podcaster Widgets
  • Theme Station Shortcodes

They are included in your theme download and are necessary to use Podcaster properly. If you don't get the notification asking you to install and activate the plugins, go to Appearance > Install Plugins to install the plugins.

Envato Market

After installing and activating Envato Market please submit your OAuth token. Each time a new version of Podcaster is released, you can simply update it directly from the WordPress back-end. Great, no? To find out where and how to create a token, scroll to the: Theme Updates section of this documentation.

If you still have Entavo Toolkit installed, please change to the newer Envato Market. After Envato went through an API update, Envao Toolkit was deprecated and is not supported by Envato anymore. Follow the instructions further below on how to set it up.

Redux Framework Required

This plugin is required in order to use Podcaster's theme options. After activating Redux Framework, you will find a link to the Theme Options in the navigation sidebar of your dashboard.

CMB 2 Required

This plugin enables metaboxes for your audio, video and gallery pages. It is required and not optional.

Podcaster Media Recommended

This plugin enables audio and video players for your audio, video posts. It is required, unless you are using a different plugin such as Blubrry PowerPress or Seriously Simple Podcasting.

Podcaster Widgets Optional

This plugin enables sidebar widgets for your site. It is option and not needed to run Podcaster.

Theme Station Shortcodes Optional

This plugin gives your further options while creating posts and pages. Insert buttons, tabs, alert boxes and more.

Podcaster Media is not necessary to run Podcaster. If you are using Seriously Simple Podcasting or BluBerry PowerPress, you do not need to install or activate Podcaster Media. Both are supported by Podcaster.

One Click Demo Data Import

The One Click Demo plugin can be used to import and install an entire demo with one simple click. In order to use it, please make sure all plugins are installed and active.

After that, please follow these steps:

  1. Please go to PodcasterImport Demo Data
  2. Select the demo you would like to install and click on Import.
  3. The import process might take a few minutes, so please allow for it to complete before leaving the page
  4. After importing, you can deactivate the One Click Demo Import plugin.

Troubleshooting: If you are receiving a "Cannot load pt-one-click-demo-import." message instead of the demo import, your hosting company might be blocking imports. A manual install is recommended in this case.

Manual Import

The following instruction will guide through a manual install. The demo files are included within the theme files, under /includes/demo-data-old

Importing demo posts (XML-File):

  1. Please go to Tools → Import → "WordPress" (you might have to install the WordPress Import plugin here)
  2. Click on "Run Importer"
  3. Select the *.xml file of the demo you would like to use
  4. Follow the WordPress instructions
  5. Wait until the "All done" message appears.

Importing Theme Options (JSON-File):

  1. Please go to Podcaster → Theme Options → Import/Export
  2. Under "Import Options" select: Upload file
  3. Select the *.json file of the demo you would like to use
  4. Click on "Import"
  5. Then "Save"

After doing these steps, you should have both, the demo posts and the theme option settings of the demo. You might still have to set the static front page, you can find out how to do that here: Static Front Page & Blog Page.

Static Front Page & Blog Page

After installing and activating the required plugins, please set up your static front page and blog page.

  1. Please go to PagesAdd New.
  2. Give it the title Front Page. On the right side you will find a box called Page Attributes. Under Template please select Page - Front Page (New).
  3. (Optional: You can select any other page template that starts with Front Page here.)
  4. Then publish the page.
  5. After that create another new page, but don't select a custom template for it. Just name it Blog and publish it as well.

Now it's time to set the new pages you created as a static front page and blog page respectively.

  1. Please go to SettingsReading.
  2. Under Your homepage displays (older versions of WordPress: Front page displays) select A static page.
  3. There will be two dropdown menus. For the one named Homepage (older versions of WordPress: Front Page) select Front Page and for the one names Posts Page, select Blog.
  4. Please save.
  5. After that, the Front Page template should be active on the front page. And your blog should be viewable under http://www.yoururlhere.com/blog

The WordPress Codex page offers further information on how to set up a static front page: Creating a Static Front Page.

Theme Updates & Envato Market

Podcaster uses Envato Market plugin to manage updates. To find out more about Envato Market, please click here. Below you can find instructions on how to set up the Envato Market plugin and keep your theme up to date at all times.

 

Updating with caching plugins: If you are using a caching plugin, the changes of the updated theme might not be immediately visible or even conflict with the old (cached) files. Please flush or turn off the plugin while you update the theme and turn it back on once you're done.

Installing Envato Market

After installing and activating Podcaster, you should see an information box at the top of the page, prompting you to install and activate required and recommended plugins. The Envato Market plugin should be among them, install and activate it.

You can always find the plugin file envato-market.zip among your plugins within the theme files downloaded from Themeforest. Follow the instructions below, if you want to install it manually:

Install via Dashboard

  1. Go to Plugins
  2. Go to Install Plugins → Upload Plugin (button on top left corner)
  3. Choose file (envato-market.zip) → Click on "Install Now"
  4. Activate

Install via FTP

Unzip envato-market.zip beforehand. Then upload it to wp-content/plugins. Head to the WordPress dashboard (Plugins → Installed Plugins) to activate it and you’re ready. Read more about installing with FTP in the official WordPress codex: Adding New Themes Manually (FTP)

Before Updating

While updating is usually a smooth process, it is also a sensitive one that when it goes wrong, can disturb the use of your website. To make sure you don't loose any data during the process, make a back up of your current theme, your content and your theme settings.

To find out more on how to back up your website, please follow the instructions on the official WordPress Codex site Backing Up Your WordPress Files.

Backing up your content

The easiest way to backup your content, simply create an export file and store it in a safe space. To do this, follow the next steps:

  1. Got to ToolsExport.
  2. Select to export All Content. This will store your posts, categories, tags, pages, menus, media (not the actual files, just the paths to your media files.)
  3. Download your export file and save it in a safe space.

Now if anything goes wrong, you can always import your content back into your site.

Backing up your theme option settings

Theme settings you make, are not overwritten during an update, but just in case you would like to keep them safe you can always back them up them. To do that, follow the following steps:

  1. Click on Theme Options, then on Import/Export
  2. Under Export Options, click on Download Data File
  3. Save the file in the safe space and use it in case your settings get lost during an update.

Creating and Managing your OAuth tokens

OAuth allows external apps to access information crucial to your purchased items on Envato without your having to give up your username and/or password. Instead you generate a unique key that manages what the external app can and can't do. To create a OAuth token and make sure you have access to your updates, please follow the following instructions.

Global OAuth Personal Token

  1. Visit the Envato Market API page to create your token.
  2. Make sure you select the following check boxes:
    • View and search Envato sites
    • Download your purchased items
    • List purchases you've made
  3. Create your token
  4. Copy and paste your token into the "Token" text field on your within the Envato Market settings page.
  5. You should now have access to your purchased items, including Podcaster.

Single Use OAuth Personal Tokens

If you would like to set up a OAuth token for just one item, follow the steps below. You will need the item ID as well.

  1. Visit the Envato Market API page to create your token.
  2. Make sure you tick the following check boxes:
    • View and search Envato sites
    • Download your purchased items
    • List purchases you've made
  3. Create your token
  4. Back on your dashboard within the Envato Market settings page, click on "Envato Market Items"
  5. Copy and paste your token into the "Token" text field.
  6. Copy the item ID into the item ID text field. You can find out the item ID by copying it out of the URL. This number is unique to each item, in the case of Podcaster it is 6804946
    .
  7. Save and you should now have access to your purchased item.

Updating Your Theme

When a theme update is available, you should see the update notice (a number next to the word "Updates" in the menu) on your dashboard. Follow the following steps and update your theme as you usually would.

  1. Click on the Updates link.
  2. Scroll down to the Themes section and select Podcaster from the list. Then click on Update Theme.
  3. The theme update might take some time to execute, do not refresh the page until the following message is displayed: All updates have been completed.
  4. Your update is then completed.

Updating with a child theme

If you are using a child theme, please keep in mind that changes might be made to the parent files, that might have an effect on your child theme files and potentially be in conflict. I recommend looking into the files that have been edited and comparing them with your child theme files to make sure they both match up.

Updating from 1.8.4 and older: Podcaster is not using the Bootstrap framework for it's grid structure from version 1.8.4 onwards. If you made customizations based on Bootstrap, especially if you are using a child theme, please consider applying your changes to the updated theme files.
