In recent versions of Sparkling I’ve had an issue getting my media player (in this case the Blubrry player) to appear in the post excerpt on the home page.
Clicking in to the post shows the player ahead of the read more break as intended, but the player does not show at all on the home page. This was not the case in previous versions.
The site having issues is www.sledgehammerpodcast.com
For a previous version which doesn’t have the same problem (running an older version of Sparkling) see www.columbopodcast.com
