    Hi,
    I’m currently building http://podcast.com 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 WordPress.com 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 podcast.com

    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)

    or

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

    or

    [podcast playlist:username] – to display a podcast.com 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.

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

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

    thx

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

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