Import: Seriously Simple Podcasting Plugin

Import an External Podcast RSS feed into WordPress using our Importer.

Note: You must have the PHP directive allow_url_fopen enabled for the importer to work. If it is not enabled, you'll see that the import says completed but no data was actually imported. 

To enable allow_url_fopen, you'll need a custom php.ini file within your wp-admin directory. Add the line in the code block to the php.ini file. If you are unsure how to do this, or unable to, please contact your webhost for assistance. 

allow_url_fopen = On

To initiate an Import

1. Paste your current podcast RSS feed

2. Click Begin Import Now


Important Import Notes

Do not leave the page while the import is in progress, wait for it to be completed. The import should only take a few minutes (if that, depending on the size of the feed). 

Episode images and podcast artwork might not be imported with the episodes; if this is the case, you will need to manually upload the images. 

Optional Import Settings

If during setup, you enabled the Posts post type, you'll need to select the WordPress post type you would like to use for your imported episodes. If the Posts post type is not enabled, this will not be visible as it will use Podcast by default. See General Settings for more information.

If you are looking to import a new podcast, you'll first need to create the podcast, and then select that podcast from the drop-down.
