The redesign of the Georgia Podcast Network is live!
The short version of what's new is:
- Create podcasts, add episodes to them, or add your affiliate podcast to the directory without having to go through an administrator. Podcasts now work sort of like diaries on Tondee's Tavern and other group blogs. Everybody can have one, but not everything makes the front page.
- Let other members post episodes to your podcast. You can name co-hosts individually, or set the "group podcast" option to let any registered member post an episode. For examples of group podcasts, see (un)ConCast and Politics is Vocal.
- Album art, channel, and other meta information can be attached to podcasts
- Post M4V video in addition to MP3 audio
- Nifty Flash uploader
- Embeddable players and widgets
- iTunes meta information in podcast RSS feeds
- Can redirect podcast RSS feeds to Feedburner
- Webplay and download statistics
- Rebuilt podcast directory
- Pretty new theme
- Better performance. Up to 8 times faster under normal server load
That's not everything, but that's the important stuff. There are still some minor CSS issues to work out in Internet Explorer 6, but it should be relatively bug-free other than that. Have a look and let us know what you think!
