Separate Blog Posts and Podcast Posts – PHD112

Do you want to separate your blog posts from your podcast posts on your website?   It might be a bad idea.

First – How to do it if you really really want to in WordPress
  1. Create a category for the podcast.  DO NOT USE “podcast” as a category.
  2. Enable Category Podcasting in PowerPress Settings (at the bottom of each setting page)
  3. In the Category Podcasting menu (found under PowerPress in the sidebar) tick the box that says “Strict Categories” Save settings.
  4. Back in the category podcasting menu,  Add Podcast Settings to your Category
  5. All your podcast related settings go in the category podcasting settings for that category NOT the main PowerPress settings.
  6. Once that is all set up, make a blog post. Select the category for your podcast in the right sidebar AND in the podcast episode box.  The podcast episode box category setting is for the RSS feed and the sidebar is for the website.  You must do BOTH.
  7. In the Appearance > menus menu, add your podcast category (not called podcast I hope) to the menu where you want it.
  8. Categorize your blog posts in a single category and add that category to the menu as well.

There is one more way to do it explained in the Podcast called Post Types.  I don’t recommend that method.

Why you do not want to do separate blog posts from your podcast posts

People that want to listen to your podcast, and show up on your website, wouldn’t they want to maybe read your blog posts (without clicking another menu)?   Wouldn’t people that read your blog want to listen to your podcast?   Why go through all the BS separating them?

1. Never Promote something you do not own.   Send people to your website and then give them all the choices you can reasonably.

Episode level images. Only some apps use the images and those apps use different images if they do. Here is a list from an experiment I did on my podcast Mike Dell's World. Episode 308 has episode level images.



One image is embedded in the mp3 file in the iD3 tags. It is white with red writing...

Apple Podcasts is getting picky – phd108

It seems that Apple is getting more picky about Titles and Author tags in Podcast Feeds.



Titles should be just "the title" like - Podcast Help Desk. Not "Podcast Help Desk | The best place to learn to podcast like Dave Jackson and Daniel J. Lewis"...
