Implementing HTML-5-compatible Podcasting-Plugin in WP

Implementing a HTML-5-compatible Podcasting-Plugin for the WordPress template called "SHELF"


The WordPress template „Shelf“ does not seem to support any of the existing plugins (such as the „Podpress“ oder „Podcasting“) which insert newly posted audiofiles to the site’s RSS feed in order to make them available as podcast subscriptions (reason might have to do with the theme’s using of HTML5).


The goal of this project is to provide a plugin that will properly include posted audio files to the RSS feed.

The theme template can be found at: [url removed, login to view]

More info:

The site will host a weekly one-hour-radio-show, which should be sent as a standard podcast to platforms such as iTunes and should also be available to subscribers as an RSS feed (to be used in conjunction with platforms such as Feedburner).

Solution 1:

If possible to podcast without an plugin, make it so that when I publish an audio file with the theme-integrated html5 audioplayer and tag it with a special categroy (e.g., radioshow), it gets automatically included porperly in the feed.


Solution 2:

Modify an existing podcasting plugin for WP so that it works with the theme. Ideally, have the plugin work with the html5 player of the Shelf theme, and only switch to flash for browsers that do not support html5

Background: I am the President of the German Association of Travel Journalists. We operate the travel-radio-podcast [url removed, login to view] as a non-profit site. We use it to demonstrate to freelance journalists new possibilities of creating their own podcasting platforms. On the occasion of our association’s first anniversary, we are planning to change to the html5-based Shelf design, also, because it works well with iPads.

If you want to help me, you can have access to my experimental site, which already exists at [url removed, login to view], or download the Theme for your development purposes as a zip-file.
