XSLT Styling and Widget Heaven

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…

  • XSLT stylesheets: RSS feeds are dull as dishwater. But, they power podcasting and sometimes, you pop your RSS feed into the browser and see the feed is all its gargantuan glory – code and all. That’s ok, it’s how it’s supposed to be, but we wanted to make it easier for anyone stumbling across your feed in a browser window to know exactly what to do with it and to be able to listen to your show directly from the feed. So we sexy styled it up. Look: https://feeds.captivate.fm/podcastaccelerator
  • Behind the scenes service tech: We spent a day or two building a new backend area for us to link your Captivate account to Intercom via a secure Intercom widget. Sounds boring, and it is a little bit, but it means that we can support you even faster by seeing right there in the support chat with you which show you’re working on and quickly launch that show in Captivate’s dashboard for us to take a look at. I love it! 

Stay safe!
