Q: How do I get my own Podcast on this site?
A: click the SUBSCRIBE FREE CLICK HERE text at the top of the page in the main menu links and create a username and password. Then Click the JOIN text at the top of the page in the main menu links and pick a plan with the drop down menu using PAYPAL to set up your monthly billing for your account. You will receive instructions via your email on how to begin podcasting within 24 to 48 business hours (not including weekends) on the next weekday.
Q: How do I upload my show to the site for podcasting?
Use a program like Filezilla http://filezilla.opensource-download.com/?campaign=google-ppc-FZ to set up a direct link to upload your show to the following directory on the server:
USER NAME: podariffic PASSWORD: Prif783c (case sensitive)
Be careful to NOT erase anyones mp3 files while using the FTP upload. After doing this you can use the path
>http://rdjcatalog.com/podariffic/wp-content/uploads/mp3/INSERT YOUR SHOW FILE NAME HERE< as in http://rdjcatalog.com/podariffic/wp-content/uploads/mp3/myshow.mp3 where myshow.mp3 is the name you gave the recorded MP3 of your content for podcast.
Next you log in on this site using your username and password and go to DASHBOARD and click the POSTS tab on the left hand side of the page. Then click ADD NEW.
The program works like any word editing program with the addition of the ADD MEDIA at the bottom of the page. Click ADD MEDIA after adding a blurb about your show and title in the wordpress editor. You can add also a picture with your logo in the body of the write-up and the editor autochecks spelling. Red underlined words can be corrected when you right click your mouse and choose from the corrected words. The first time you do this you will want to talk with Dan Merrick the site creator to walk you through at 814-887-5224.
Once you have finished the basics with the word editor you go down to add media and put your full path of your Mp3 file name in the first box after clicking ADD MEDIA. This is where the program will put your show player into the page once it is published.
You want to click the RSS and ATOM feed boxes and enter a title for your show. INSURE YOUR FILE NAMES AND SHOW TITLE IS NOT THE SAME AS ANY OTHER SHOW ON THE NETWORK OR IT WILL NOT WORK. Then hit AUTODETECT for the bytes and the run time which are in buttons on the menu for the player.
Finally put TAGS into the box at the right on the page and separate them with a COMMA as in [ Show, Politics, Right, Dan, ETC ] Above that box is a category check box so choose a few that apply and add them. DO NOT ADD A NEW CATEGORY! If you want a new category email Daniel@RDJCatalogc.om and request that one is added to fit your show. If approved, Dan will add it to tabs in the main menu and send you a return email that it is up for use.
DO NOT USE THE “HOME” CATEGORY FOR ANY POST ON THIS SITE.
HOME is for the site admin to promote important information on the site.
DO NOT CLICK AUTOPLAY ON ANY POSTED MEDIA! Player files are feed right to the RSS syndicated feeds and autoplay causes the show to play on multiple feeds that can crash the network.
DO NOT POST ANY PAGES ON THE EDITOR. Pages are for top menus links. IF your podcasting account has a page provided with the plan you choose, then you must go through a PHONE CALL walk through when posting your page under ADD PAGE.
Once you have completed all the steps for your show POST, click PREVIEW in the upper right and review in the tab opened how the page will look. If you are satisfied with the page image and look, then hit PUBLISH and your podcast post will go live.
Hope you enjoy the site and podcasting here on PodARiffic.
