Twitter Player Card for Blubrry PowerPress WordPress Plugin

Dear Reader,

For the past 10 years I have been a podcaster. In that time I’ve used a lot of tools to present my podcast. None of them are better than WordPress and PowerPress. The one thing that PowerPress is lacking is the ability to create a Twitter Player Card for my content. So I hacked something together.

PowerPress Player Card is a WordPress plugin. You have to have PowerPress installed and activated before it will activate. Without PowerPress, it’s useless anyhow.

The Readme contains installation instructions. You have to install it manually because it isn’t in the WordPRess plugin repo and most likely never will be.

Once you have it configured and you’ve validated your card using the Twitter Card Validator, everything is automatic. Add your podcast post and when the link is tweeted, users will see the player, right in their page.

So now casual listeners can enjoy your podcast without having to subscribe to your feed or get a podcast app.

Thank you BluBrry for a great plugin.

Until next time
