Getting Started

Welcome to Podcastpage.io!

We've got a bunch of user guides to teach you about using the application, but this page is designed to get you up and running with Podcastpage as quickly as possible and give you a full overview of the platform.

With Podcastpage, you'll be able to create beautiful websites for your podcasts. The platform makes it really easy to create, customize, and manage podcast websites. You don't need any prior experience with websites or need any coding etc. If you haven't already, check out your dashboard.

Getting Started: Checklist

  2. Connect your podcast
  3. Demo Data

Creating a website

After you sign up to Podcastpage, simply follow the setup wizard that opens up. It will ask you to pick a name for your website, add your podcast feed, and pick a theme for the website.

If you closed the wizard without creating a website, don't worry - You can always create one by clicking on the plus (+) sign in the dashboard, or on the "Add New Site" link on the left menu. Both will launch the new site wizard.

Connect Your Podcast

Connecting your podcast is one of the top purposes of Podcastpage. We import your podcast automatically and keep it in sync as you release new episodes. 

You can add the podcast during the site setup wizard, or at any point from the "Podcasts" screen -

Add a Custom Domain

If you already upgraded your plan, you'll probably want to connect your custom domain. Read more here on how to Connect your domain.

Demo Data

Your new website comes with a few placeholders and demo data to show you the full potential of Podcastpage. You might want to adjust those areas before publishing your site. Here's a short breakdown of those parts -

Demo Pages

When you create your site, we automatically include a few pages to get you off the ground faster. You can easily jump in and start to modify those pages or delete them altogether and start from scratch. We also include navigation links to all of the demo pages - 

  • Home - Your main page with the podcast information, and episodes.
  • Episodes - A custom page with all your episodes, you can delete it or adjust the content in the Pages tab.
  • About - A custom page with demo data about the podcast and the hosts, you can delete or adjust it in the Pages tab.
  • Reviews - Once you connect your podcast, we automatically try to find reviews on Apple Podcasts (iTunes) and Podchaser. The demo "Reviews" page displays all those imported reviews.
  • Blog - The Index of all your blog posts. Add or remove posts in the Blog tab.
  • Contact - A custom page with a contact form, you can delete or change the content on this page in the Pages tab)

Social & Subscribe Buttons

Podcast subscribe (follow) buttons and social icons are a big part of your site.

To add/remove social & subscribe icons go to "Customize -> Social & Subscribe". You can easily change any of these buttons, add more or remove them. (You can also add different subscribe/social icons on different podcasts if you have more than one podcast connected to your site)

When you connect these destinations, don't forget to insert full valid URLs (with http:// or https://).

Logo & Navigation

To adjust the menu/navigation, simply go into the "Customize -> Header & Footer -> Navigation/Menu Links" screen to add or remove the items directly there. 

Don't forget that if you delete a page or make it a draft in the Pages tab, you should also remove it from the navigation bar so it won't refer your visitors to an error page.

You can add any URL to the navigation. It can include internal links (your site's pages, blog, blog posts or episodes), external links (to other websites like Spotify, for example), and custom redirects.

To modify your logo, go into the "Customize -> Header & Footer ->  Site Logo" screen and upload a new image.

Footer Widgets

The demo footer comes with a few sample widgets. You can easily edit or remove those or simply hide the footer if you prefer. It's possible to change the number of columns and widgets. Each widget can include text, images, links, tables, and media.

The pre-made widgets include:

  • Recent episodes - a list of the 5 latest episodes
  • Pages - a list of links to your pages
  • Subscribe/Follow buttons
