Minor request! For the site banners, is it possible to exclude the embedded Fireside podcast in the first post? It makes the banner take up so much screen real-estate, and I usually just come to this thread if I want to listen to an episode shared. :smile:

You could accomplish this by removing the embed from the first post and adding it as a reply to the original post. Then, the plaintext appears at the top, and if I come navigate to the thread, the embed will be there waiting for me?

Great point. I do think a smaller widget would be great. Is there a happy medium? I really want people to listen and share the episodes so whatever will help accomplish that I’m down. =)

A smaller widget could work. It isn’t bad on my Android mobile device, but the current widget is a mildly greedy for screen space on the desktop site of Discourse. At least, for me. :sweat_smile:

Thanks, it’s a labor of love and I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I have been. A lot of this is made possible by @eric for giving me resources. Also CodeFund and Linode. If you need cloud hosting use Linode.
