fyyd podcast shortcodes


Blogging about podcasts is a thing now. Of course it’s good practice to link to the podcast’s website and include some additional information, maybe inside an information block.

This plugin provides shortcodes to display podcasts’ information inside your blogposts. This includes general information about the podcast and single episodes’ information, including the option of an HTML5 audioplayer for those episodes. In addition there are infoboxes for collections and curations.

To get the data needed, the plugin makes use of podcasts’ data provided by fyyd.de, a podcast directory and service point. fyyd’s API (https://github.com/eazyliving/fyyd-api) is the interface to all those podcasts.

All displayed content is dynamically fetched by the clients browser, there’s no server-side action/caching/etc…

This plugin provides shortcodes to include infoboxes for


[fyyd-podcast podcast_id=57585]
[fyyd-podcast podcast_slug=silence]
[fyyd-podcast podcast_slug=silence color=#008000]

episodes (optional with HTML5 audioplayer)

[fyyd-episode podcast_slug=anerzaehlt player=true]
[fyyd url=https://fyyd.de/episode/3989950]

You can set episode_id to “latest” or leave it out to provide the latest episode published. In this case you have to provide the podcast_id or podcast_slug of the podcast.

For podcasts and episode you can provide a background color (#rrggbb). Default when left out is the dominant color of the podcast’s logo.
