Changing podcast prefixes, figuring out a team member bug and making Evo smile

It’s weekly update time!! As always, we’ve worked hard to listen to what you’d love to see in Captivate and have put together the latest release as follows…

  • Episode URL added to publishing screen: We’ve popped in a lovely little field within the episode publishing screen for you to add the URL for your episode if you aren’t using Captivate Sync™ or Captivate Sites. Useful for people using Wix, Squarespace or some other web platform. Remember GeoCities? Awww. Also, thanks Evo!
  • Quashed a minor team member bug: In some really specific edge cases, owners of shows were able to remove themselves from their own show. It took some jiggery-pokery to actually do it, but one or two peeps had the issue so we took a lightsaber to it and got it sorted.
  • External prefix interface changes: In preparation for next week’s release, which is a powerful one, we’ve made it easier to chain together podcast prefixes like those from Chartable, Podtrac and Podcorn. Captivate’s interface now lets you choose the prefix provider and we’ll do some checking to make sure your prefix looks a-ok for you.

All relevant help articles have been updated to reflect these changes.
