Moving Your self-hosted podcast to the Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin on WordPress

If you have been podcasting before your move to the Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin, we're happy to know you are ready to make the switch.

If you have been using another podcasting plugin for WordPress, check out our setup docs for PowerPress or Libsyn here

  1. Identify how you are currently working with the audio files on your site and whether those files are available on a WordPress Post. The SSP plugin will not work on WordPress Pages, but it is available to use on regular Posts, on the SSP Podcast Post Type, and on other Custom Post Types.
  2. If you are currently using Posts for your audio files, visit PodcastingSettingsGeneral and click Posts under Podcast Post Types to allow SSP to be available on any post of your site. Once enabled, you will see the Podcast Episode Details area on any post.
  3. Now, you will need to add the audio to the Podcast Post.
    • Copy the URL for the audio file from your podcast host (if you are hosting from a non-Castos host, or
    • Click Select file (if you are self-hosting) to add/find the audio file in your WordPress Media Library. 

Once all your podcasts are added or converted on your site, you can trigger the Import process into your Castos account.
