Episode Info: Podcasters need a WordPress theme designed with features and flexibility to support podcasting. Here’s why I think SecondLine Themes are your new best choice! 1. Integration with PowerPress The reason I’m listing this as number one is because Powerpress is the top podcasting plugin for WordPress and is used by more than 60,000 podcasters. It’s also a really good framework for supporting podcasting on a WordPress website. With PowerPress in place, if you wanted to switch your podcast player, you simply switch the player plugin and it automatically changes for all of your past and future podcast episodes. No need to go back through each episode post and change the player. If you’re publishing your RSS feed from PowerPress, then having a theme that works with it is really a no-brainer. I’m surprised how many WordPress themes say they’re a podcast theme, but they don’t support PowerPress! SecondLine Themes does support PowerPress, which is really important to me and I think it is important for any podcast WordPress theme to do. 2. Support for other podcasting plugins for WordPress If you don’t use PowerPress, then no worries! SecondLine Themes also supports other podcasting plugins: Seriously Simple PodcastingSimple Podcast PressPodLove (WP plugin)Buzzsprout (WP plugin)Smart Podcast Player (from Pat Flynn)Smart Podcast Player doesn’t support PowerPress by itself, but you can easily integrate it with PowerPress by using SecondLine Themes! If there’s a major plugin that SecondLine Themes doesn’t support, or that’s really important to your workflow, reach out to their support and they can probably get it integrated easily and quickly. 3. A versatile embed field for more player options Maybe you don’t want to use a WordPress plugin to put a player on your website and would rather use one from your podcast hosting provider, such as Libsyn, Captivate, Simplecast, Anchor, and such. SecondLine Themes makes it really easy to paste the embed code for your player into a special embed field and then it will display that player in the normal places instead of the built-in SecondLine Themes player. This embedded player can be HTML, an iframe, or Javascript. Simply paste that code into the special embed field and the theme will take care of the rest. Just getting a player to display with the excerpts for your episodes can be really difficult if that player doesn’t have a WordPress plugin but SecondLine Themes makes that really easy. You can even use it for one-off things like a special embed code from another podcast or a YouTube video. 4. Beautiful design Yes, SecondLine Themes have the standard theme features: responsive design, support for SEO, optimized for speed, and such. But let’s focus on the aesthetics! SecondLine Themes are beautiful! They’re clean, modern, and future-technology focused. There are some podcast themes that focus on using images, but images will slow down ...
