WordPress Custom PHP Plugin - Podcast RSS Reader


Develop a very simple/basic plugin.

The plugin is called "....."

This is for podcasts that are hosted externally. It takes a podcast RSS and displays a list of episodes via a shortcode. When the user clicks on an episode it takes the user to a page where a player appears and it shows the episode notes etc. Ie. its main purpose is to keep people within the site when navigating to an episode page.

The plugin should have these configuration items:

- Podcast Base URI. Defaults to "podcasts"

Custom Post Type

The plugin will allow for the creation of a Podcast post which has the Podcast RSS feed URL, and an override image to be used as the episode image if the admin does not want to use the image from the podcast RSS feed. It should also allow for a custom uri segment to be specified to be added to the Podcast base URI. Default will be the post number if nothing is specified. EG. if the admin chooses "news-channel" then the combined URI would be /podcasts/news-channel/ . It should also have an option to select the image to be used in the banner of the player page when an episode is selected.


there should be a shortcode to display a list of episodes for a podcast as configured in the custom Podcast post type. eg by ID. There is NO player in the listing - users click on "Listen Now" to go to a page where a player will let them listen. The shortcode show allow for setting the limit of episodes to return (so that you can do the latest 3 episodes for example). The wireframe for this will be supplied. When used, the shortcode would return the last "X" episodes in a list of episodes available. It contains:

- episode image from the podcast feed, or the override image if supplied in the custom post type

- date of episode from feed

- duration from feed

- title from feed

- listen now link

- share link

Episode display:

There should be a way to have an "episode" page which is common to all episodes in much the same way as a woocommerce product display page. The episode page should have the banner set by the setting in the custom Podcast post. This might be done by having multiple shortcodes for title, player, episode notes etc (fields from the rss feed) The podcast title should be used as the page slug. For example, if the article title was "Breaking News Ep 1" the link generated from the list shortcode should be "/podcasts/news-channel/breaking-news-ep-1"


If a user directly enters the url [login to view URL] then the plugin should seek through the RSS feed to find that episode and display the details on that page. It should do that by looking at the second URI segment, matching it to the custom post type, and seeking through the RSS feed to find the episode by slugging the title.


If the initial build is well done, I will engage you to write a caching option so that the plugin does not seek the RSS feed more than once every X hours.

An example RSS feed URL will be provided

This must be developed as a standalone plugin. PHP should be neat and easy to understand and maintain.

It needs to be complete within 48 hours of acceptance.

Do not pitch for this unless you are a WordPress PHP legend and can add value to this idea.

Do not pitch unless you know exactly HOW you can do this, and that you will get it back to me within 48 hours.
