Learn how to add podcasts to your WordPress.

Transcript:

This video will show you how to create a podcast in WordPress and make a dedicated podcast feed.

So the first thing you need to do is login to your WordPress site through the Account Control Center. You can do this by going to your WordPress Sites page and clicking Go to Admin Panel. Log in to your WordPress admin interface.

Now I’m going to go to Posts and click Add New. You can also choose to edit a post, as well, if you choose.

Once in the post editor, I’m going to name this post, “Podcast.” Then I’m going to select the podcast audio file from my desktop and drag-and-drop it onto the post editor. As you can see here, it will bring up a window where you can enter information about the audio file. When you have added information, click Insert into post.

If it is a compatible audio file, it will be inserted into the post as an audio player. Publish your post by clicking Publish.

You have just published your first podcast. Now, if you want to create a dedicated podcast feed, go to Posts in the left sidebar and click Categories in its drop-down.

You’ll see an Add New Category interface here. Enter the name of your podcast feed, an optional slug, and description. Set a Parent Category if you want it to be a subcategory of one of your other categories.

When finished, click Add New Category button. This has created your podcast category. Now, go back to your podcast post and add it to this category. You can do this by clicking All Posts in the Posts drop-down. You will see all your posts listed here. Click the name of your podcast post. This will take you to the post editor. Then, over here in the Categories section, check the box next to your podcast category you just created. Then, click Update.

If you want to use your podcast feed’s RSS, you can find it by typing: https:// yourSiteName.com/wordpress/?feed=rss2&category_name=YourPodcastCategoryName

This URL will take you to a page with the category’s RSS feed for your use. And that’s it. If you have any questions, check out our knowledgebase or contact our support team at support@pair.com.
