Using Audioblog with WordPress 2.0
|Reported by:||tdillard||Owned by:||anonymous|
I use the Audioblog service (www.audioblog.com) to publish audio and video to my WordPress 2.0 blog. The service worked fine with WordPress 1.5.2, but encountered problems when I upgraded to WP 2.0.
At first I had problems even publishing, but Audioblog support told me that WP 2.0 didn't like Iframes, and to add some code to the very end of my wp-config.php file, which I did (before the last ?>):
---------- BEGIN FIX TO ENABLE IFRAME POSTING FOR AUDIOBLOG.COM ----------
$allowedposttagsiframe? = array("src" => array(),
"height" => array(), "width" => array(), "frameborder" => array(),
"scroll" => array(), "scrolling" => array());
---------- END FIX TO ENABLE IFRAME POSTING FOR AUDIOBLOG.COM ----------
Audioblog will now publish to WP 2.0 fine using xmlrpc.php, but I cannot edit the posts in WP. When I go into edit mode and try and save, whether I've made changes or not, I get the message "Errors on page" in the status bar of my browser. The changes, if any, DO get made, but when I go back to my blog's main page that post is the only one which shows, and my sidebar is missing. For this reason, I have to use a work-around in Audioblog which doesn't allow for their video to appear inline in my posts.
I don't know very much programming, certainly not enough to delve into the inner workings of WP, but the problem appears to be with the post module, since everything publishes OK from Audioblog, and displays OK at first, but generates errors once I try to save or publish.
An example of a video post using inline video that I published using Audioblog under WP 1.5.2 can be found at http://www.righttrack.us/2005/10/16/audition-tape-found/
My current work-around, which involves opening the video in a new window, is at http://www.righttrack.us/2006/02/05/alabama-church-burnings/
My blog (The Right Track) is located at www.righttrack.us. I'm willing to share my login info for my blog and Audioblog to resolve this issue, if need be. I generated a lot of traffic with my video posts, and need a reliable way to keep doing them.
Please let me know if I can provide you with further information.
