Wordpress Quick Publish Plugin
This plugin lets you transfer the shownotes, the code for the web audio player and other metadata of your podcast episodes into a Wordpress post with just a few clicks. It is available to all podigee users who have booked at least the Basic package (version 6 or higher).
Attention: Currently Podigee Wordpress Quick Publish only works with the classic Wordpress editor - an integration into Gutenberg is planned for one of the upcoming versions.
Cool. And how can I install it?
Very easy: Search in the Wordpress plugin directory for Podigee Wordpress Quick Publish and click Install - but don't forget to activate the plugin after installation.
After activation, please open the Podigee menu item in your Wordpress settings. Enter the subdomain of your podcast in the appropriate field - exactly as it is listed in the podcast settings in the podigee backend under General. You can also find the Auth-Token in the podigee backend on the Apps tab in your user account settings.
If you are creating or editing a post now, you should see an editor box called Podigee Quick Publish somewhere - if not, you can view it in the top right corner of the Customize View tab. If your settings are correct, the URL to your MP3 feed should already be there. With the Fetch Feed button, you can load all your episode metadata - and then just select an episode to magically copy titles, shownotes and the web player into your post with a single click.
So, to recap in a nutshell:
1. install the plugin directly from the Wordpress directory
2. activate plugin
3. enter subdomain and auth token in the settings
4. show box (and move it to the desired position if necessary)
I have so many questions!
If you think that something somewhere is not working as it should, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the error and preferably with screenshots. Or maybe these frequently asked questions will help you:
Why is the field "Feed-URL" empty?
Probably you have not yet entered the authorization token. Check the Podigee menu in your Wordpress settings. You can find the token itself here.
Do I have to pay for this plugin?
You need at least our Basic Package (version 6 or higher) to use this plugin. It's under MIT license and probably a resourceful Wordpress developer can upgrade your verification in no time - but it would be much fairer if you click on the appropriate plan with us.
Does the plugin write any garbage into my Wordpress database?
Of course not. We just save the data you entered under settings into the wp_options table. The key we use for this is called pfex_plugin_options - and if you delete it, it will reset your settings.
I installed and activated the plugin, but nothing has changed in the editor.
That's not a question, but we're happy to help here, too: Have a look under Customize View in the upper right corner of your editor. You probably have to show Podigee Quick Publish there first. By default, it will appear at the bottom of the editor (but you can simply drag it from there to the desired location).
I use Gutenberg - why doesn't the plugin work here?
Unfortunately we are not quite there yet. For now, you can just use the Classic Editor - but we will certainly support Gutenberg in a future version.
Can I also copy unpublished episodes this way?
Can you guarantee that the plugin will always be compatible with future Wordpress versions?
No. Since the plugin, unlike our internal features, is entirely within Wordpress, we cannot guarantee that it will always be available as part of the Basic package or higher. For example, a Wordpress version may be released in a few years, which is so radically different from previous versions that we cannot update our plugin immediately. Or Wordpress may decide that the plugin violates their guidelines in some way and kick it out of the plugin store. There is no immediate reason for such cases in the near future, but unfortunately we cannot predict how the platform will develop over the years.
