Libsyn Publisher Hub


Libsyn Hosting Account Required

Not already hosting with Libsyn? Sign up at, or contact for details.

Libsyn’s Publishing Hub allows for the perfect workflow for publishing podcast episodes straight from WordPress and into your Libsyn show. Features such as episode creation, Apple Podcasts optimization tags, creating ID3 tags, automated feed/show migrations, pulling in previously published episodes, and advanced scheduling bring some of the best of Libsyn’s publishing options to your WordPress website.

Media file uploads direct to Libsyn, as well as by using already loaded WordPress media or access your Libsyn FTP Dropbox all from one place.

The best part is your media files stay hosted with Libsyn, and your RSS feed will still be generated by Libsyn as well, meaning your web hosting server remains unaffected by your podcast and your RSS feed and media files are unaffected by your web hosting server. It’s the best of both worlds.

I'm using WP 5.8 & the plugin fails in various ways. I worked with libsyn tech support, but the end result was: "You don't need blocks. Use the crappy classic version." Not sure why libsyn hasn't kept this going, but I'm about to dump them and switch to a podcast host that takes "full" support seriously. libsyn spent so much time on the new version of their website yet let this important piece just languish until it died.

After signing up for libsyn, feed migration was a breeze. Then I went and updated some old posts and now those are showing as the newest episodes in my feed, and showing as unplayed. I will never use libsyn again.

I am a Libsyn customer and the new Block editor is a breeze! I am able to insert my new episodes (Videos) right in the post and did I mention it is FAST? Awesome plugin Libsyn keep up the good work!

The upload feature does not work. You click the upload button and the dialog box is grayed out where you can not select the file to upload. Support is sketchy at best, I have dealing with this issue for over 6 months now and each time they tell me it will be fixed in the next release. Still broken!!!!
