Improved Audio Processing in Posts and Use of Primary Images via the NPR API

The following updates were made to Core Publisher this week:

Audio Fix

We have expanded the group of stations testing a fix to improve the processing of audio in posts. The fix is now live on Michigan Radio, State of Opportunity, WWNO, WBFO, WRTI, KBIA, and KCUR (Thank You!)

Post Form Redo--The Details

This evening we will be pushing our latest feature on Core Pub, the updated Post Form. I will be adding FAQs here over the next few days. In the meantime I wanted to make sure every newsroom had the salient information they need to work with the new form.

Please to refer to and distribute these slides as needed, which contain the following information: 

  • How do I make a slideshow? 
  • Which audio will go into my podcast? 
  • How do I edit audio I added the "old way"?

And as always, please contact us with any additional questions, comments, or feedback. We are all ears.
