Migrating to the New Podcast Page

Article sections

    On February 21st, 2017, Libsyn is releasing a brand new version of the Podcast Page destination. This new solution provides a range of features producers have begged for, including:

    • Better mobile responsiveness
    • Widgets support with a sidebar
    • Additional pages (About, Blog, Contact)

    Even better, it’s much more aesthetically pleasing than either of the prior solutions that have been offered.

    For anyone who creates a new show starting February 21st, 2017, the new Podcast Page will be the default page.

    Migrating to the New Podcast Page

    To get started, log into your Libsyn show and hover over Destinations and select Add New.

    Add New Destination

    Hit Add for the New Podcast Page from the list.

    Add New Podcast Page

     

    Hit Save/Continue Button.

    Configure the theme settings, add any pages and widgets you like, preview your page along the way and then hit Save Changes once you have completed your configurations.

    Note: If you have questions about the configuration or design, a full tutorial outlining each option can be found here.

    Once you have configured your page the way you like, at the bottom of the page should be a Ready to Launch checkbox:

    Ready to Launch

    Check the Ready to Launch Checkbox, then hit Save Changes to save your changes.

    This next and final step will transfer your settings from your old Podcast or Webpage destination to your New Podcast Page destination.

    If you have the older Podcast Page, you will see this:

    Hit Confirm.

    If you have the (much) older Webpage destination, you will see this:

    Hit Confirm.

    If you are one of the few who have both the old Webpage and old Podcast Page destination, you will see this:

    In this instance, choose which old destination you want settings pulled from, then hit confirm.

    This process will take a moment. Do not change your page or move away.

    To clarify, the migration will ensure any episodes that were released to your prior page are the episodes that are released to the new page (and anything that wasn’t previously released to the page, still won’t be released to the page). It also will ensure all of your URLs and permalinks will continue to operate.

    Once done, the page will refresh and confirm the change was completed.
