Core Publisher How Tos

In creating a header for the responsive theme, we've aimed to strike a balance between flexibility and simplicity. We want it flexible enough for stations to achieve their branding requirements — and simple, so we can ensure it works at all device sizes and is easy to maintain.

In support of our recent announcement that effective September 30, 2016, NPR Digital Services is transitioning its streaming service from Limelight to Triton Digital, we have added a new player option for Core Publisher stations specifically for Triton Digital streams.  The Triton Player is now an option for your station to select in your Core Publisher Stream Management options.  

Triton Player Features include:

Podcasting is an important tool in the digital landscape for sharing your station content.  We’ve received great feedback from stations regarding podcasting capabilities in Core Publisher.  We’ve heard you and we have taken steps to improve the way Core Publisher manages podcasts!
 

We want to give a special thank you to our diligent podcast pilot group for helping us test these updates on their live Core Publisher sites: Vermont Public Radio, KUOW, KMUW, Michigan Radio, and Southern Carolina Public Radio.

Core Publisher Persistent Player
NPRDS

We’re excited to announce the availability of the Persistent Player for Core Publisher (Responsive design sites only). The new Persistent Player provides a new audio experience that allows users to enjoy your streams, uninterrupted, as they navigate your site. It supports multiple streams, with associated stream and song information, in a simple treatment that is easy to use for any site visitor.

Here are the key features that set this player apart from past Core Publisher stream tools:

We are excited to announce a special Core Publisher training opportunity for all current Core Publisher users to refresh and sharpen their web production and site administration skills.

Core Publisher Summer Training Sessions: August 4 ­through September 15

We’re pleased to announce the availability of new integration services that support the Public Media Platform's goal of making it easier for viewers, listeners and mobile audiences to find and interact with news, cultural and educational content produced by public media. These services - new functionality within Core Publisher and a new PMP Drupal module - allow stations to access and publish PMP content to their websites.

Thank you to all of the stations that were able to join us for the Responsive theme update for Core Publisher webinar. 

In this webinar we discussed:

Over time, many member stations have created maps, graphics and other projects for their websites that were sized to fit Core Publisher’s fixed-width layout. But with the responsive mobile-only sites, and Core Publisher going to a fully responsive design, these elements either don’t work or won’t resize correctly to the screen. Now you can use Pym.js to iframe responsively-built projects within Core Publisher stories.

Following up on a recent note to outline NPR Election Night coverage from Member Partnership, we wanted to specifically detail how to embed the NPR Politics Tumblr into a Core Publisher post or page.
