Seriously Simple Podcasting (Castos)
If you are using the Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin (with our without Castos), and you'd like to add your podcasts to your app, here's how to do it.
Setup the Media in WordPress
First, login to your WordPress site, and visit the AppPresser => Settings page.
Under Media Post Types, select the "Podcast" post types.
Activate the SSP Integration Plugin
Install and activate this plugin.
The plugin takes the media url from the SSP plugin and adds it to the AppPresser API media url fields. It does the same with the featured image. It only works for new podcasts.
Update Existing Podcasts
To make sure existing podcasts show up in your app, you have to add a post meta field. Do this automatically by installing the plugin above, then all you have to do is load this page on your site:
For example, if my website was apppresser.com, I would paste the url https://apppresser.com?apppresser-media=1 into my browser address bar and press enter.
You only need to do this one time, it will run the update script.
Create the Podcast Page in Your App
Next, add the podcast page to your app.
- Go to your app customizer, click the Custom Pages tab, and add a new page.
- Choose "Page Builder."
- Select the Podcast block (shown below)
- Fill out the fields and save
Fill out the fields, add the page to your menu, and save.
The default route to podcasts with the SSP plugin is https://YOURSITE.com/wp-json/wp/v2/podcast (The podcast block works with any plugin or CPT, so change this if necessary)
