Welcome to this tutorial on understanding the changes after installing the pro version of the podcast player on your WordPress website. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to make the most of the pro version of the podcast player and get the most out of its new features and benefits.
Activate Your License Key
After installing the pro version, the first thing you’ll want to do is activate your license key. To do this, go to the podcast player admin page and look for the license activation box on the right sidebar. Enter your license key and click the “Activate License” button to receive automatic updates.
Explore the New Tabs in the Toolkit Section
In the pro version, you’ll notice new tabs in the toolkit section of the admin page. These tabs add more functionality to the plugin and we’ll go into more detail on these tools in the next article.
Discover the New Options in the Podcast Player Block
In this tutorial, we’ll examine the new options in the podcast player block. Although, we are showing additional options in the editor block, keep in mind these same options are also available in the widget, shortcode, and Elementor.
Retrieve Your Podcast Episodes
When you go to the podcast player block, you’ll see new ways to retrieve your podcast episodes. You can use the feed URL, fetch episodes from WordPress posts, attached audio files, or a single audio URL. If you choose to display the player from posts, you’ll have the option to filter by post type and taxonomy.
Explore the Styling Options
You’ll also find new styling options such as layouts, image cropping, Google fonts, and background color options. The sort and filter section now allows you to show or hide specific episodes from a list. If your podcast has multiple seasons, you can choose to display a specific one. And finally, you can add a custom audio message to episodes, providing a personal touch for your listeners.
In this tutorial, we’ve shown you the changes you can expect after installing the pro version of the podcast player on your WordPress website. From activating your license key, to exploring the new tabs in the toolkit section, to discovering the new options in the podcast player block, we hope this tutorial has helped you get a better understanding of the pro version of the podcast player.
