How Do I Make the JS and CSS File Names Consistent Across Versions?

The Smart Podcast Player plugin loads two files into the web browser: a Javascript file and a CSS file.  The version numbers of these files are identified within the filename.  For example, in version 2.2, the files are "main-2.2.0.min.js" and "style-2.2.0.css".

Prior to version 2.2, the version numbers of these files were identified using a query string.  For example, the Javascript file was loaded as "main.min.js?ver=2.1.0".

Some users may want to restore the old behavior.  For these users, we offer the option to go back to the old method, adding the version number to a query string instead.  This is available in Settings -> Smart Podcast Player -> Advanced -> Javascript and CSS file versioning.  If you do change this option, please check your performance and caching plugins after every update to be sure the correct Javascript file is being loaded. 

(This change was made because many performance plugins remove the query string, resulting in the wrong Javascript file being loaded and causing the player to malfunction.)
