PM 1.x - Styling the JavaScript Template

Podcast Manager 1.8 adds a new JavaScript media player to the distribution giving users a new way to display their embedded media in their articles or feed listing, as well as style the player to match the rest of their site's appearance.

CSS & HTML Based

All the markup for the player is dynamically built by the content plugin and the player's JavaScript.  The player is built off the SoundManager2 API, which includes support for touch screen devices (iOS, for example) and HTML5.  Although customizing the HTML output would require hacking the distributed code, all of the elements are output with unique CSS IDs and classes and can be fully customized.  Using the distributed player.css file as a base for assigning style to classes, you can override these definitions in your template's CSS file to integrate the player's appearance into your own site's template.
