Using a WordPress website to power your podcast often makes a great deal of sense. After all, if you’re already blogging, why not use the same platform to manage your podcast? You’ve already got a built in audience, and individuals that like and appreciate your message. One of the plugins we like to facilitate playing the podcasts in a post is Blubrry PowerPress. It does a great job, and lets you manage where you store your podcast files (either on your server or on a service like Amazon S3). It allows you to incorporate your podcast into text so that it will do better in search, and it will allow you feed the podcast to iTunes.
It is true though that, adding a podcast episode with PowerPress has a few hidden elements that can make it difficult to successfully install. This WordPress tutorial video will show you to get it done easily and quickly.
This WordPress Tutorial video will show you how to:
- Add the PowerPress shortcode to your post to determine where the player will show up.
- Add the media URL to the post.
- Verify the media URL in the post to ensure it will work properly.
- Edit the publication date of the Podcast Episode.
