    437437Upgrading from 8.8.6.3 (or older version) to 8.8.8.x (or newer versions): 
    438438If you have used the widgets of podPress then it will be necessary to reactivate these widgets manually after an upgrade. The reason for these cirumstances are the massive modifications on both podPress widgets. The widgets will try to take over the old settings as far as possible. 
    439 podPress adds feeds to your blog. These Feeds have the names <em>podcast</em>, <em>premium</em>, <em>enhancedpodcast</em> (since 8.8.5) and <em>torrent</em> (since 8.8.5). In the past versions, you could not control these Feeds and their meta information via a settings page. That is why v8.8.8.x has a new section at the Feed/iTunes Settings page (which has also a new design). With this new podPress Feeds section in place, the purpose of the Feed Settings section has changed. Now, the Feed Settings section is for controlling the iTunes tags and other settings only of all the main Feeds of the blog (like the default Entries RSS2 Feed) and the podPress Feeds section is for controlling the additional Feeds which podPress adds to your blog (like <em>podcast</em>). In the past all the Feeds have shared the same information from the Feed Settings section. If you are using at least one of these Feeds to publish your podcast episodes or to route them to Feedburner or iTunes or a comparable service then you need to fill in the information about this Feed like the content description or the URL of Feed icon into the new podPress Feeds section. You may copy and paste the information from the Feed Settings section or you could use the chance to customize these information. If you are using a non-default Permalink scheme then you should save the Permalink settings after the podPress upgrade. You should also re-save the Permalink setting after you have changed, activated, deactivated or renamed a Feed or if you are using the podPress the first time in your blog).

    440443podPress v8.8.5 and newer versions require at least WP 2.1 but it is recommended to use at least WP 2.3. To be able to use the full feature set (e.g. for multiple widget support) of podPress, you should use at least WP 2.9.x. 
    441444Upgrading to v8.8.10 is going to rename the podPress `meta_key`s in the postmeta data base table of your blog (`podPressMedia` becomes `_podPressMedia` and `podPressPostSpecific` becomes `_podPressPostSpecific`). Downgrading to a previous version is only possible if you reverse these changes.

     475 
    467476podPress adds not only iTunes-tags and <enclosure>-tags to your usual RSS feed. It adds e.g. a feed called "podcast" (http://example.com/?feed=podcast), a feed called "playlist.xspf" (http://example.com/?feed=playlist.xspf) and a feed called "premium" (http://example.com/?feed=premium). 
    468477The podcast feed contains all the posts which have at least one media file added with podPress despite the categories the post is in. It is not necessary to put all the post with podcast episodes in a category called podcast. (There is one constellation you should avaoid: If you name a sub category podcast and you are using e.g. the Permalink structure "Date and name" then the URL http://example.com/category/parentcategoryname/podcast/ leads to the feed called podcast and not to the category view.)

    514524= How-To use custom variables for the XSPF player: = 
    515 Create a sub folder in the plugins folder of your blog e.g. /wp-content/plugins/podpress_options/xspf_options/variables (create a different one for the slim player e.g. /wp-content/plugins/podpress_options/xspf_options/variables_slim/). Copy the podpress_xspf_config-sample.php file from the podpress folder to the podpress_options/ folder. Rename it to podpress_xspf_config.php and uncomment the line with constant PODPRESS_XSPF_USE_CUSTOM_VARIABLES_1 (or PODPRESS_XSPF_SLIM_USE_CUSTOM_VARIABLES_1 for custom variables for the slim player). The number 1 in the name of the name of the constant is stands for the ID of the blog (it is 1 for the main blog of a multi site installation or a single blog). If you want to define different variables for XSPF player in different (sub) blogs then you need to define constant and variables files with their IDs too. The last stept is to create the variables files and place them in the variables (or variables_slim) folder. They have the naming scheme variables_{blog ID}.txt. For more information about all possible variables see the [documentation of the XSPF Jukebox](http://lacymorrow.com/projects/jukebox/xspfdoc.html).
