Process for submitting/enabling a shortcode for hosted blogs?

  1. Hi,
    I'm currently building with a load of features such as user playlists and podcast directory and feed navigating/playing widgets.

    I have seen various companies have been able to provide simple 'shortcodes' enabling users to post various widgets and objects in their posts (usually Flash audio/video players etc.) and I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on what I would need tp provide to enable a simple shortcode from our system at

    I can easily create a short id/url to use for these to enable something like:

    [podcast feed:xxxx] - to display a player with recent entries to a feed id (xxxx)


    [podcast folder:xxxx] - to display a navigatable podcast directory and feed reader/player for a folder id (xxxx)


    [podcast playlist:username] - to display a user's playlist player

    If someone could point me in the right direction to the correct person to talk to about this, I'd be eternally grateful. :)

    Many thanks,

    I would use the "contact Support" link above. Mark can then forward your request to the appropriate people for consideration.

  3. Hi,
    The Contact Support link seems to only take me to a page of tagged posts from around and not to a direct support form link.

    So, decided maybe a post to the Questions forum would be better?

    The support link is wonky. It's taking us to the main page.
    But you can reach staff by emailing support [at] wordpress [dot] com

  5. thx. I tried that yesterday. but as yet no response.

  6. btw. I found out that a certain level of 'desire' for a widget shortcode has to be attained first ;)
