Creating Audio Episodes for Podcasts
Creating Audio Episodes
Now that we know what podcasting is and how to create Podcasts, we can start adding audio episodes to the podcasts we’ve created.
Click Podcasts > Add Episode
This will bring you to the Add New Audio Episode Screen.
Just like most content in One CMS, add a Title and Description. These will show on your website and be fed into the Podcast RSS feed that you submit to 3rd party podcasting services like iTunes and Spotify.
Adding the Audio File
Rare cases: If you are using an external 3rd party audio player, you can embed the player code in the Add Custom Audio Embed field. This will show the 3rd party player instead of the One CMS player.
Tracking Host Read Advertisements
In the next section, you can enter the information about any Host Read Ads you read during the episode. By entering the approximate time you start reading the ad and how long the ad is, using our advanced statistics, we can inform you, as well as the advertiser how many times that ad was heard.
First, you’ll want to select which Advertiser the Host Read Ad is for. Any previous Advertisers you created will display in the Advertiser dropdown.
If the Advertiser you are created the Host Read Ad has not been used before, you can create them by clicking the Create New Advertiser link.
This will open a modal where you can give the new Advertiser a name, a contact email and also decide if you want One CMS to automatically email the advertiser when the episode goes live (so they know their ad is now being heard by listeners).
Once you click Save, the new Advertiser is created and automatically associated with the new Host Read Ad.
Now just name the Host Read Ad and enter the beginning timestamp and the duration of the ad. (Note: you can create as many Host Read ads as you need for each episode).
Adding the Episode to a Podcast
You can add the episode to one or more podcasts that you have already created. If you syndicate your podcasts, the episode will syndicate out to any service this podcast has been submitted to.
Publishing the Audio Episode
Once the episode has been published it will be listed in Audio > Audio Episode. On this screen you can also see which podcasts each episode is associated with.
An episode post will also be created, which includes the Title, description and a player which displays the featured image.
You can also use shortcode to add the audio player with the selected episode anywhere on your website.
The shortcode format is
But you don’t need to remember any of that. One CMS has a built-in shortcode creator that will build the shortcode for you. Just click the shortcode icon, select Episodes and build your shortcode based off of the podcast and episode you want to display!
