Automatically Update Podcast Feed?
« on: February 01, 2016, 04:29:30 pm »
One of my clients host a weekly radio show. The radio station automatically adds her show each week to their RSS feed. She want to host her podcasts on her site as well. So we were able to successfully import everything from the feed at the radio station.

However, she would like this process to be automated. Is there a way for the site to automatically detect when a show is uploaded to the radio station feed and add it to our website without having to do anything on her end?

There's nothing in the PowerPress plugin that can do this. It might be possible thru some process of scripting. I can't really think of any other way to do it.

Do you have any suggestions as to where to start with that? Does Powerpress have any premium options for this?

PowerPress has no premium options. And unfortunately, I have no specific referrals for you. You'll probably need to find a developer that's fluent in PHP and specifically the WordPress API. You might have some luck looking around the WordPress forum:

Thanks for your replies Shawn. One last question. I was told by Angelo Mandato the following on another forum:

"Blubrry.com enterprise services includes a turn-key podcast network platform, if that is what you are tring to accomplish. Our enterprise system can pull podcast feeds on a regular basis (once an hour if desired) and will scale to traffic needs. "

This is what I am curious about. I thought maybe it was a premium version of the plugin or something but it is a different platform all together correct?
