Podcast by Series and podcast styles

More
7 years 4 months ago #717 by Cindy
Hello, I am trying to setup our site so that when the RSS feed or podcast link is clicked it will pull up by Series (ie, Series 1 and its mp3s, Series 2 and its mp3s below that etc.). I can't seem to get it to work. It seems to be either all mp3s or none.

Also, in IE9 the style is not the same. There is a missing graphic at the top right and the colors are different. In Firefox, it shows neatly and each mp3 row has a grey background.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks

How the Feed is displayed depends fully on the browser. The feed itself doesn't contain any styling info.

However which sermons should be listed can be either set in the settings for the module or with the URL parameters. You can filter by categories or series.
The URL parameters are "series_cat", "speaker_cat", "sermon_cat" and "series_id". So if you want only the sermons of the series with the id '1000', then your URL would look like this:
www.plainfieldcs.com/index.php?option=co...=feed&series_id=1000

There is currently no way to automatically generate such a feed link on the series page without editing the code, but it could certainly be done easy by editing the layoutfile, all the needed data is already there.
If you tell me what exactly you want to achieve I could probably guide you so you can edit the files yourself.

Thanks so much for your quick response.

Here is what I am trying to achieve. On this page
plainfieldcs.com/index.php?option=com_co...ory&id=56&Itemid=191

Each of these has its own set of mp3s. I haven't set them up in SermonSpeaker yet...only the Preface. I would like the feed to show each Series and its mp3s below it. In other words

Science & Health Chapter 01 - Prayer
1.mp3
2.mp3
3.mp3

Science & Health Chapter 02 - Atonement & Eucharist
1.mp3
2.mp3
3.mp3

Would like all these to show like this on the feed. Thanks.

A feed by definition is just a list of episodes. There is no defined ordering or grouping possible. How it will be organized and displayed is fully depending on the feed reader (eg iTunes or the browser).
So it would be possible to create a separate feed for each series, but not a single feed containing the sermons ordered by series.

You could add a feed link on the series list page (one link for each series) or on the single series page. That would mean editing the layout file for those views (or overriding them).

For the series list view that would be
/components/com_sermonspeaker/views/series/tmpl/default.php
and you could add the following lines around #45
<td>
   <a href="index.php?option=com_sermonspeaker&view=feed&series_id=<?php echo $row->id; ?>">
      <img src="images/M_images/livemarks.png">
   </a>
</td>
between those two lines:
</td>
</tr>
