PowerPress Posts From MySQL

Have a bunch of podcasts stored on your server and aren't excited about creating each post manually? This can help.

By populating a MySQL database table with all the information about the podcasts you can automatically create the posts needed for podcasting with the Blubrry PowerPress plugin. This will allow you to post as draft or published and switch between the two as well as delete posts. Probably not useful to actual Podcasters, but it works for what I needed.

Information required from the database:

  • Host
  • Database Name
  • Database Table Name
  • Database Username
  • Database Password

Also field names from the database which will be used for the following:

  • Primary Key Field
  • Title
  • Category
  • Post Body
  • Featured Image(URL to an image)
  • Media URL
  • Media size
  • Media type
  • Date posted

Your categories need to be setup prior to using this.

Note: I've rewritten this from the ground up and decided to learn Git while doing so. You can find the repo at https://github.com/machouinard/powerpress-posts-from-mysql.
