Podcasting News Podcasting How To

Connect Your WordPress Site to Automatically Post Your Podcast Episodes

Podbean has a new feature, to make it easier than ever to share your podcasts on the web! You can now connect your WordPress site to your Podbean account so that new podcast episodes will automatically be posted on your WordPress site.

It is super easy to set up and start saving time! Go to Settings ==> Social Share and click on the “Connect to WordPress” button (only self-hosted WordPress sites are supported, not those hosted on WordPress.com). You will need to input your WordPress login url, username and password. Then, hit “submit” and you should see a success message at the top of your screen.

You can also customize your posting options. Click on the “edit” pencil icon for your connected WordPress account to get the dropdown menu of options. Categories allows you to set it up so that the episodes automatically post in one (or more) categories within your WordPress site (for example, your news or blog section). If you wish to post to more than one category, simply separate the names of the categories here with commas. You can also customize options for the look and feel on your site, such as player color, whether the download and share buttons are displayed, if the episode auto plays, and the video size (for video episodes). To see that everything is working, you can “Send Test Post”.

Once you have the connection set up, simply publish a podcast episode as you normally do and the episode will now post on your WordPress site (there may be a few minutes delay for this to update).

With this latest feature, Podbean saves you even more time, allowing you to share your podcast with ease! If you have any questions or need help, contact us at support.podbean.com.

    Should you use the category name, ID or the slug? When I try using the name, the post just gets put in the uncategorised category and not the one I added to the settings.

  2. Same here – I just get “uncategorised”. My slug matches my category name.
