I was a bit bummed when I found out that Blubrry Powerpress WordPress plugin no longer displays a podcast cover image anymore. The latest update must have broke this functionality because I used to be able to display a custom image whenever I uploaded an mp3 file and set it as a podcast.
I tried configuring it both ways, in the configuration settings allowing a video poster image and setting it manually. But I also used the powerpress shortcode by adding the image=”path to image” after the powerpress shortcode and it still didn’t work.
The previous images that showed up for all my previous podcasts are vanished, now I am left with just the “play” bar without any image on it to help the player stand out better.
I mentioned this in the Blubrry Powerpress forum hoping someone will respond to my thread with some instruction or update that will work here.
The Bluberry Powerpress folks were very responsive to my thread and mentioned that they would look at restoring functionality in a later update. It must have not been a heavily used one as the image/cover feature works for video casts, just not for audio at the moment. I also had a typo in my original article which I corrected.
