More on my Talkr podcast experiment

Thanks to some readers I have been made aware of the fact that the “Listen to this podcast“-link does not work for old posts in my blog.

The guys at Talkr have made a reasonably good job on trying to explain the problem when you click on a podcast-link in an old post:

We have encountered a problem with your request

Apologies, but we cannot find a post with the permalink:
http://www.eirikso.com/…this old post…

This often results from one of the following timing issues:

* If the RSS feed is generated by FeedBurner, it is possible that the post was published so recently that FeedBurner hasn’t found it yet. FeedBurner’s pretty fast, so if that’s the cause, this will probably be fixed within a few minutes.

* On the other hand, it is possible that you are requesting an audio file for an old article — one that was not present in this blogger’s RSS feed when they first created their Talkr account. In this case, Talkr has no way to create the audio. We’d like to apologize for this inconvenience.

Unfortunately I haven’t found a way to include the podcast link only on the posts that are working in Talkr. Of course all posts from now on will work, but my site has a lot of good articles way back in time, and people keep reading them as well.

Can’t say much more than what they do on the info page over at Talkr. I apologize for this inconvenience!
