Anchor Episodes Index


This plugin appends an episode index to the podcast player. Currently, the only available embed for the player is for a single episode.
This plugin allows you to add your entire episode index, just the same as you have on your site.
Simply input your site and RSS URL’s on the settings page and add the shortcode to any page or post.

Firstly, install and activate Anchor Episodes Index (this plugin).

Once activated, go to the settings and fill out the Anchor Site URL and Anchor RSS URL fields (be sure to add the URL’s without a “/” at the end, otherwise it will not work).

Then copy the shortcode you’ll see on the settings page and paste it in any page or post.

If you want to add multiple different podcasts on the site, you can define the RSS and Site URL’s as shortcode attributes instead of on the settings page. Note, you cannot currently output two players on one page.

Great work for bringing us this plug-in! I appreciate the work. One nice feature would be if it's also possible to only show the latest podcast, without the pulldown feature. So when selecting " 1" podcast to display the is no pulldown and only the player with the latests podcast.

This is great — simple and does what it says on the tin. One feature I'd love to see, however, is the ability to limit the number of episodes that are pulled in — rather than the entire list. It would also be good if there wasn't additional space at the bottom of the feed but it's a minor thing compared to how useful this plugin is.
