Customize the track information (Fusebox 1.0)
This article covers the artist name and episode title for the track player, which is a Pro feature and is not included in the Free subscription. For a look at how Pro compares to Free, go here.
Artist Name and Episode Title
The artist name and episode title appear in the Fusebox Track Player by default If your artist and title aren't showing up, it's usually one of two things:
- Your ID3 tags (metadata) of your URLS (rss and/or mp3 URL track) don't include this information. This can be done via your podcast host.
- Your show name and artist name aren't filled out in the Player Defaults (Fusebox > Settings > Player Defaults).
You can also override the metadata from your URLs and your player defaults if you want to. Say, you have multiple podcasts on one website (which you can do!).
In the example below, Non Wels is the artist and 115: Healing Through Poetry with Brianna Pastor is the track title. This example is from Fusebox Customer Experience Lead Nōn Wels' podcast, You, Me, Empathy!
There are two ways that you can override the artist and title information:
Using the Shortcode Builder
When you create your track shortcode, enter your desired artist/author name in the "Artist" field. Entering a name here will override your episode's artist name. Then enter your title in the "Title" field to override your episode's title.
In this example, we're using the WordPress default editor, Gutenberg. This is the shortcode builder:
Entering It Manually
Add the following to your shortcode:
artist="Pat Flynn" title="How Narrow Should I Make My Ebook Topic?"
The shortcode now reads:
[fusebox_track_player url="https://www.buzzsprout.com/56535/415521-ap-0688-how-do-you-plan-your-editorial-calendar.mp3" artist="Pat Flynn" title="How Narrow Should I Make My EBook Topic?"]
