Blubrry Hosting with PowerPress

Blubrry Media Hosting allows you to streamline episode publishing directly from within your WordPress site. The service works by linking your hosting service to your website. Once you link your service to your website, all you have to do is write your website post for your episodes, and under the ‘Podcast Episode’ box select “Choose File.” When the “Select Media” screen appears, choose media you’ve previously uploaded to Blubrry Hosting or upload new media to your Blubrry Hosting account.

Linking your Blubrry account to your WordPress site

Once you’ve set up a Blubrry Hosting plan, go to the PowerPress Settings page and select the “Let’s Connect” button. In the prompt, enter your Blubrry login email address and password then click “Save.” If you are prompted to select a program, select the program you wish to use for this website then click “Save.” Your WordPress site is now linked to your Blubrry podcast hosting account.

Create a post, upload and publish

Publishing episodes is as easy as writing a blog post, just upload your episode between the process of drafting your show notes and publishing your post.

Important: Uploaded media to Blubrry hosting is held in a private, unpublished state until you associate your media file to a blog post that is “Published.” This feature allows you to keep future episodes unavailable until you go into your site and publish them. It also provides more control for when files are used against your 30-day media hosting storage space.
