Guide to upload your podcast to Spotify

Seriously Simple Podcasting is a top-notch podcasting plugin for WordPress. It is a tool for beginners and advanced users created by chaste. Using easy setup instructions, advanced features and many customization options, “Seriously Simple Podcasting” powers over 20,000 podcasts.

The plugin will always be free to use. The only costs associated with using Seriously Simple Podcasting is if you choose to host your audio files with a dedicated podcast hosting provider. Similar to using a website hosting provider to keep your WordPress site fast and running smoothly, we recommend hosting podcast files with a dedicated provider. But remember, it is not mandatory!

All features will be available no matter who you choose as your podcast hosting provider. Seriously Simple Podcasting gives you more control over your content so you can start podcasting without limits.

With other podcast providers, you'll need to update your podcast's RSS feed through your hosting provider account and again in WordPress to manually sync the information. “Seriously Simple Podcasting” also cannot read some metadata fields (such as episode length and post date) from third-party hosting providers. For each episode, you also need to upload that information manually.

How to set up “Seriously Simple Podcasting”?

Getting started with Seriously Simple Podcasting is a very simple process. In just four steps, you'll go from installing the plugin on your WordPress site to submitting a working RSS feed to every podcast directory.

  1. Install the “Seriously Simple Podcasting” plugin on your WordPress site and link it to your podcast hosting provider.
  2. From your WordPress dashboard, go to the “Podcast” plugin. Then click “Add New” to upload an episode and add the corresponding details.
  3. Within the plugin's "Settings" under "Feed Details," include details about your podcast to finish creating the RSS feed. Details include the podcast name, description, cover art, and category selection.
  4. The RSS feed is generated and ready to be sent to each podcast listening platform.

Key Features of “Seriously Simple Podcasting”

“Seriously Simple Podcasting” offers all the advanced features through the free plugin. You don't need to pay for additional plugins or use a specific podcast hosting provider.

Manage your RSS Feed from WordPress

Seriously Simple Podcasting generates an RSS feed that is fully compatible with Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and any other listening platform.

  • Set your podcast title, subtitle, description, category and subcategory selection, cover art, explicit rating, and WordPress copyright information
  • Manage all updates to your podcast's RSS feed from WordPress and changes will be automatically synced with your podcast hosting provider
  • Create password protected RSS feeds to restrict access to premium content

Manage multiple podcasts from the same site

Create unique RSS feeds for multiple podcasts and feature them on the same website.

  • Save unique settings per podcast for easy management
  • Create custom subscribe buttons for each podcast you've uploaded
  • Optional “catch-all” feed for podcast networks that want to aggregate all of their shows into a single feed

Customize the embedded media player

Choose from a standard compact player or a feature-rich HTML5 media player that displays cover art or episode-specific images. Change the settings to display your podcast exactly how you want it.

  • Show customizable subscription links to Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, Overcast and Pocketcasts. I also included links to download the content or play it in a new window
  • Share episode metadata, like audio length and release date, below the player
  • Customize the background and player progress bar colors to match your brand
  • Select player position above or below post content
  • The media player is mobile friendly, so podcast posts look great on desktop and mobile browsers
