The best way to run a podcast from a WordPress website is with PowerPress!
PowerPress turns posts into podcast episodes, and gives you all the tools you need for podcast SEO and the latest Apple Podcasts RSS tags.
Simple Podcast Press
Hani Mourra’s Simple Podcast Press plugin for WordPress can automate publishing your podcast from an RSS feed to your website, automatically integrate with and enhance PowerPress already on your site, and do so much more!
We’re using it on several of own podcast sites!
Pretty Links Pro
We use Pretty Links Pro more than any other plugin for our podcasts and websites. Whether it’s trackable affiliate links, memorable and speakable URLs for our podcasts, or automated keyword-hyperlinking, Pretty Links Pro both saves time and helps earn more money from a blog and podcast!
Social Warfare Pro
Make it easy for your audience to share your episodes by using Social Warfare Pro. You can customize the title, description, and image for Facebook, Twitter, and even Pinterest! Plus, create attractive click-to-tweet buttons for pull quotes.
Social Warfare Pro is also one of the lightest weight social-sharing plugins, so it won’t slow down your website.
WordPress themes define the overall look and structure of your site, but Elementor Pro lets you easily create engaging pages, posts, popups, headers, footers, and sidebars! Elementor Pro works with your existing theme and gives you a fast drag-and-drop interface to customize your content and website elements! Among the most popular WordPress page-builder plugins, Elementor is our favorite for its quality code, fast support, frequent updates, and vast integration.
We use Elementor Pro here for The Audacity to Podcast and we love it!
