Submit to iTunes, Google Play and more
You have everything you need to build a flexible podcast website, submit to iTunes, Google Play Music or any other RSS based directories. The theme is designed for you to act as the host and publisher of your show. It will generate the required compliant RSS feed, so you don’t have to get your hands dirty with other additional plugins or third-party tweaks.
Import episodes from another publisher
You can easily extract episodes from an external RSS feed into your brand new WordPress site. Just paste the feed URL, select the category assigned to the new imported episodes and voila! There is also an advanced option to schedule the import process to run from time to time. The theme makes the difficult look easy, saving you hours of extra work.
Apply your personal touch in minutes
With a media-rich header area, a well-chosen image or video helps you create a visual impact that instantly engages fans. It is so easy to set up and it handles all the heavy lifting. The theme has just enough functions a practical design and the execution is backed by solid research that makes it easy and viable to be used by anyone, new or experienced.
Find out who’s listening and downloading
Yes, you deserve to know your audience. The backend panel offers daily, weekly, monthly statistics about total listens, listeners and listening sources. You get to see how many listeners use the site audio player, iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, direct downloads and many more. The audio files are permalinked, protecting the original ones, so nothing gets by without you knowing it.
Optimized for speed, developer friendly
Highly optimized with mobile first techniques, the theme preview scores 98% on the page speed grade and it is faster than 95% of all tested websites. Well written code allows developers to understand the theme and extend it with ease. Hooks are used to offer a better customization experience and the episode post type and podcast functionality is stored in a separate plugin.
