Support » Plugin: PowerPress Podcasting plugin by Blubrry » Subscription Links Question

  • Resolved Jay Versluis


    Dear friends,

    I’ve never tried the excellent built-in audio player in Blubrry Power Press. I’ve just switched it on and I love it 🙂

    As an added benefit, I’ve noticed that PowerPress adds two subscription links to the bottom of my posts, one for RSS and one for Atom. Here’s my question: if users subscribe to my Podcast Feed through those links, will those subscriptions be included in the iTunes statistics? I’m guessing no, because how would iTunes find out about it?

    If that’s correct, is there an easy way to replace those links with my own link to iTunes via the plugin, without having to write PHP code for this? I’d love an automatic link and perhaps an Apple Podcast icon underneath each episode, much like this example shows (created manually):

    Thank you for your help!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Apple’s analytics includes only those downloads/plays that occur thru the latest versions of the iOS Podcasts app and desktop iTunes software.

    You can control which links appear below the PowerPress player by going to PowerPress >> Settings, Advanced Mode >> Website tab and checking boxes next to each subscribe link you’d like to see under the player. Then, you must also go to the Destinations tab within PowerPress settings and copy/paste the correct URLs in to the correct fields. Click the Save Changes button when you’re done and you should see links to those services appear underneath the player.
