RPPR Community AP Podcast site
« on: February 01, 2010, 12:21:57 AM »
http://community.roleplayingpublicradio.com/

Here is how it works

record your game, encode it to 64-96 kbps mp3 and write up appropriate id3 tags for it

Ask all recording games questions here http://slangdesign.com/forums/index.php?topic=495.0

DON'T PUT SPACES IN FILE NAMES OF YOUR RECORDINGS

PRIVATE MESSAGE ME HERE WITH YOUR EMAIL AND DESIRED USERNAME SO I CAN SET UP YOUR ACCOUNT ON THE SITE

Post in this thread with your username

I will make you an author so you can add posts on your own

Then you will upload your files via FTP

# FTP Username: rpprupload@slangdesign.com
# Password: RPPRis#1
# FTP Server: ftp.slangdesign.com
# FTP Server Port: 21

I am not your personal computer teacher

DO NOT ask me how to use FTP

I use FireFTp and Cyberduck

LEARN IT ON YOUR OWN OR BOTHER SOMEONE ELSE

Once it is uploaded post here to let people know about it

some other people will listen to it to make sure it is audible and worth posting to the site

then I will transfer it over to the community directory and you can post it yourself

Awesome.  The RPPR is quickly growing to be completely epic (in my opinion).

Thanks Ross. I'll need to review the games I have recorded and see if any of them are actually worth putting up.

I'd like a few of you to set up accounts and try to make at least one post. I want to see how wordpress MU works and handles other users.

I'll do it, do I need a special account?  Or should my own Wordpress work?

EDIT:  Can't log in with my own Wordpress account and can't find somewhere to register...

Tried, can't post.  I think you (as admin likely) would have to upgrade me to have posting powers.  I'm going by the same username there.

EDIT:  Yeah, looks like default account generation just has power to post (albeit posts still need approval).  Do you know if you can associate the blog with existing Wordpress accounts (I think you would have to invite)?  I'm guessing not since I literally signed up with the exact same things as one I had before (and would have expected some kickback about duplication)...

Explored around a little and I can't find any way to post or do much of anything. I'm familiar with the interface and the 'normal' posting and altering opinions seem to be missing.

Same here.  You can comment, but it still waits for moderation

When you signed up did you select "give me a blog" or "user name only"? I selected "user name only".

Yeah, if you ask for a blog, it gives you a separate page in addition to "access" to the RPPR Community one (at least that has been my past experience with Wordpress).  If we need to make a new account though, I wonder if I can delete my old one...

I'm going to look around and see what's what.

EDIT: Yeah, the account you created (at least it is for me) is already associated with the main site, so unless Ross was planning for everyone to create their own individual blogs to post stuff on, I think we signed up the way intended (where we could write up a description and post on the site)...

Then it must be a matter of account accessability.

I'll open up my WordPress page and see if I can find any more information through that.

That's my guess.  I know when I did something similar a few years ago, we had to go in and individually give privileges to members associated with it (i.e. they can post comments, they can write articles, they can edit articles, they can publish articles, etc.).  As I remember, Wordpress actually works very well with multiple authors, all with different privileges as people can write articles, but not publish them, allowing an admin or moderator or some such character check them and then publish if everything is okay.

Well if you were asking me, the now no longer used one that had multiple authors (I was the only one who bothered to work on it, and I aged out of the youth group it is for):
