In this final episode of this mini series I’ll show you how to configure the first episode of your Podcast Feed by adding the audio file to the post. I’m also talking about the implications of setting the date and time on the post so that all your post-dated episodes appear in the correct order. Finally, we’ll submit our validated feed to the Apple Podcasts directory.
In this episode I’ll show you how to configure our Podcast Category with the relevant settings that are necessary for the feed to have meaningful content. I’ll talk about every single tab, including the Feed Description, specific Apple iTunes and Google Settings, how to add artwork and how to preview the feed.Catch this episode on my WP Guru Podcast:
In this episode I’ll show you how to add podcasting capabilities to your WordPress website, using the Blubrry PowerPress plugin. I’ll explain the concepts and inner workings of a Podcast Feed, how it can be read by podcast directors and readers alike, and talk you through the installation of the plugin.
For this example, I will setup Category Podcasting on my website https://supersurvivor.tv, which will allow me to host more than one Podcast Feed from the site.Catch this episode on my WP Guru Podcast:
In this episode I’ll explain how we can hide the Feedback Tab that the Jetpack plugin adds to the sidebar of the admin interface in WordPress. This tab is part of the Contact Form feature, which sadly cannot be switched off with a single slider. We’ll have to delve into debug mode and do it “the hard way” – but fear not, there’s not code hacking involved, and I’ll be with you every step of the way.

In this episode I’ll show you how to install the Classic Editor plugin in WordPress 5.x. I’m also showing you how to upgrade to WordPress 5.0 and how to bring back the welcome screen that appears only once after the update.
From now on, Gutenberg will be the new post and page editing experience in WordPress by default. The Classic Editor is now a plugin that will be supported until 2021, so there’s ample time to get acquainted with Gutenberg in our own time.

In this episode I’ll show you how to add your Podcast Feed to Spotify. Until very recently, this was only possible if you were hosting your podcast with a specialist “aggregator service” (also known as podcast hosts), but Spotify have now enabled submissions from the likes of you and me as well. Here’s how to do it.
I was looking for another desktop USB microphone for my second desk. Currently I’m using a wonderful Blue Yeti with my Mac on my main desk (or Studio A as we like to call it), and every time I do a screencast or podcast on my Windows workstation (or Studio B as we’d like to call it), I have to bring over the Blue Yeti.
So I discovered the ZAFFIRO Desktop USB Mic, for over $100 less. I thought I’d give it a spin – and I really like it. Here’s what I found after a couple of weeks of working with it.
In this episode I’m taking a look at two lapel microphones by ZAFFIRO. They’re both called “Lavalier Lapel Microphone”, and the description is more or less identical on both items – yet there are significant differences between these products.
I bought both of them back in March 2018, and given the sound quality and amount of accessories you get, for less than $20 each, these mics are good bargains for casual users. But no matter how detailed (or vague) their shop descriptions are, and no matter how hip the people in those pictures look, you can only really judge a microphone by what it sounds like.
In this review I’ll tell you all that I’ve learnt in my six months with the ZAFFIRO lapel mics.
In this episode I’ll show you how to take pictures with built-in and external USB cameras using Photo Booth on macOS. Photo Booth is the equivalent of the Camera application in iOS.
I will also explain how to export your images, where they are stored on the hard disk, and what you can do if the built-in camera gives you an error message.
As I’ve explained in the screencast, if Photo Booth or any other app is giving you grief about there camera “not being available”, you can try to reset the VDCAssistant process on macOS.
To do this, open the Terminal app, then type the following:
sudo killall VDCAssistant
Provide your administrator password when prompted, and without a reboot, Photo Booth should be working as it should. Thanks to Turn It Off And On Again for this tip!
I’ve recently discovered a tweet that showed a Commodore 64C complete with green monitor and 1541-II drive, heavily dust covered, but still working and being used in a Polish Auto Shop. The picture itself was fascinating enough, but I’ve also discovered that it was a screen grab from a video – which I’m including here as well (had to replace the music with something royalty free).
