How to Start a WordPress Podcast With Simple Podcast Press Plugin? – A Review
If you already publish your podcasts in iTunes or have a podcast feed, provide either link (iTunes URL is recommended so you can see all your world-wide iTunes Reviews) in the respective field. If you don’t have any of these, click ‘Continue‘ to enter into the actual settings page. You can reconnect anytime you want by clicking the ‘Reconnect My Podcast Feed‘ located at the bottom of the settings page.
Podcast media files can be uploaded directly into WordPress, hosted on the integrated Castos platform, or hosted on any other site – in the latter case all you’ll need to supply is the URL to the file. Please note that episode lengths and file sizes can only be automatically calculated for files that are hosted on the same server as the website – either way though, you can input them manually.

To set up Simple Podcast Press, you simply enter your iTunes or SoundCloud URL, and the plugin will do the rest. Unique pages for each of your episodes are created, and a mobile-friendly player is inserted. This is automatically accompanied by the full description of your episode, as well as any images taken from your podcast feed. Thereafter, each time you publish a new episode, your WordPress site will automatically update.
Blubrry PowerPress does not include media statistics built-in. This is not because Blubrry has its own statistics service, although that’s a good reason by itself. Maintaining and calculating statistics is a resource and server intensive task that would add bloat to an otherwise efficient WordPress podcasting plugin. We recommend using your media hosting’s web statistics to give you basic download numbers and, if you are seeking more grandular measurements such as client and geographical information for each episode, you’re more than welcome to use the Blubrry Statistics service as well.
