my name is Ansgar, I live in Switzerland and want to set up a web site with Podlove for my wife.
I registered heiligeschriftstückchen.ch (yes, with a German Umlaut), installed Wordpress, added a https certificate (Let’s Encrypt) and added the Podlove plugin. Then, I created a folder called https://www.heiligeschriftstückchen.ch/pod/, set the access rights to readable and uploaded a file heb.mp3. This can be accessed using https://www.heiligeschriftstückchen.ch/pod/heb.mp3.
In the episode settings it says “file not found”. I don’t know why.
To make sure, it’s not the URL with the German Umlaut, I tried the same using another domain. Here it works (green icon). But the web player does not work.
Can you help?
As long as you configured /pod/ as the media directory, you only have to put “heb” in the Slug-field
you only have to put “heb” in the Slug-field
So I did. This worked with my wollnik.ch domain but not with my heiligeschriftstückchen.ch domain.
Clicking on the “Datei URL” heb.mp3 worked though.
Strange. I guess there is something wrong with the puny code handling…
I’m dealing with network services, domains and similar stuff professionally since more than 20 years and I would strongly recommend to not use Umlauts anywhere. Neither in domains nor in file names or similar. It always causes a lot of headache. And if you solve problem A, problem B will occur and so on.
IMO you should consider registering a different domain.
sad to hear domains with Umlaut still don’t work. I registered now heiligeschriftstueckchen.ch as a main domain. Visitors to heiligeschriftstückchen.ch will be redirected from now on.
I also did a first test with a podcast file. Like with my wollnik.ch domain it worked out of the box. So will stick to that.
I didn’t say that they do not work but they always cause problems.
