Podcast Resources

Are resources in the 'Podcast' app part of the resource/revision management in Perch?

I'm curious since they don't appear in 'Assets'.

e.g. let's say I:

  1. Upload a file as a podcast and publish it (at which point it appears in the resources folder)
  2. Change the file name, and re-upload it in the podcast episode

At this point the old file remains in the resources folder.

Will this eventually be removed by Perch? Or will I have to remove it myself?

Are you using the local file upload option? If so, no, they don't use Assets. Would you see a podcast file being reused in other places on your site? It's something we could potentially add if there's a use case, but I'm not sure it's typical to post the same audio file to lots of places on your site.

No, I don't think I'd re-use a file in multiple places. If so I guess I could just call it using the perch_podcasts_episode function.

So, just to confirm, I can delete old podcast files in /perch/resources without messing up the database?

Yes, you can just delete the file. Podcasts doesn't have a cleanup routine.
