I experimented with the template functions listed here:

http://help.blubrry.com/blubrry-powerpress/customizing-with-your-wordpress-theme/

Which are:

<?php the_powerpress_content(); ?>

and

<?php if( $episode_content = get_the_powerpress_content() ) { ?>
 <fieldset class="episode-box">
 <legend>Podcast Episode</legend>
 <?php echo $episode_content; ?>
 </fieldset>
<?php } ?>


They both worked perfectly on my XAMPP/localhost installation.  And the original, simple background image scheme that I had been using for the past year works perfectly there also, where the player appears in the default position at the end of content.

So I created a new addon domain at my webhost for testing purposes before I made any changes to my actual blog.  I installed the current WordPress and PowerPress and my custom theme.  The media player plays correctly but the background image will not show.

But the surprising thing was, when I added the background style and the image to the default twentyten theme it did work.

So I guess it is an issue with my theme but the strange thing is that my theme worked for at least a year.  And it still works with XAMPP/localhost, although I do have to change the positioning on the background-image when it's on localhost.

So there must be something different about the way that XAMPP processes all of it and the way my web host server processes it.

Got your web site link from previous page of this thread, http://godliferadio.com/.

There may be some caching, loading up the page with Firebug to see if the CSS attribute is even set will give some indication of the problem.

Update: Okay I loaded firebug, there is no css class for .powerpress_player. I then looked at your source code and I do see a problem. The style "#about-image-2" is not properly terminated with a closing }. Properly close that set of CSS attributes and all will be better.

You should also see some other styling items missing from your "Listen" pages, there's a good chunk of CSS not being applied due to this syntax error.

I would politely yell at your web developer and recommend to him/her to use a CSS editor (Dreamweaver is highly recommended).  :)

Thank you!!!!!!

That fixed it.  And the Listen page looks like it is supposed to also.  You're a genius!

I am very sorry to bother you with a dumb syntax error.  And my web developer is terribly sorry and embarrassed too.  :)  He will start using Firebug and maybe even get Dreamweaver.

No worries. Happens to the best of us, I was just being a smarty pants. I do like the CSS editor in Dreamweaver though, it's hands down best CSS editor available.
