Jetpack Easy Playlists Update
Got a friendly email from the Growth Engineer & Chief Dog Walker at Automattic Inc. He kindly told me that:
In jetpack_easy_playlists.php you check for function_exists( ‘audio_shortcode’ ) — http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/jetpack-easy-playlists/trunk/jetpack_easy_playlists.php#L96
That check broke a few weeks ago when Jetpack was updated to wrap the audio shortcode functionality in a class — http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/550656
Ooops! I didn’t realize. Thanks.
So, the makers of Jetpack and the commercial arm of WordPress know about my little plugin and want to keep it working… I wonder, could we see JEP functionality in Jetpack or WP proper sometime soon? It’s sorely needed.
Also makes me wonder if Automattic monitors all plugins that use one of theirs as a dependency. At any rate, neato that they reached out.
Here is a test of new functionality – ability to call up a playlist from another page or post, using the post/page id or the full slug:
[jplaylist] (no mp3s attached to this post.)
Sorry pal, no mp3s found for your playlist.
[jplaylist pid="999"] (wack id)
[jplaylist pid="2012/techmology/"] (wack slug)
Sorry pal, no mp3s found for your playlist. Check your page/post id?
