Migrating from TSG Podcasting Plugin to PowerPress


In 2008, the TSG Podcasting plugin started development at about the same time as PowerPress. Early on, we communicated with Ronald Heft and collaborated on key ideas and features between our podcasting plugins. Specifically, Ronald came up with the method we use today for storing extra meta information with podcast episodes. This forethought is included in PowerPress, which is why switching between PowerPress and TSG Podcasting plugins today is a seamless process.

How it’s done

  1. Install and enable PowerPress plugin
  2. Tweak settings in PowerPress (optional)
  3. Disable TSG Podcasting plugin

PowerPress will continue where the TSG Podcasting plugin left off by including your previously created episodes in your feeds and pages.

Note: If you are using category podcasting, you will need to recreate each category podcast setting in PowerPress before making the switch above. Episodes, because they are stored in the same way, will not be lost in the switch.

At this point you may want to go over the settings in PowerPress as well as configure the players.
