MemberPress integrates with the Blubrry PowerPress Podcasting plugin to create premium podcast feeds. It’s quite easy to get this working, here are the steps you need to go through to get it setup:
- Create a MemberPress Membership (if you haven’t done it already) for your Premium Podcast feed by visiting “MemberPress” -> “Memberships,” clicking “Add New” and filling out the appropriate details.
- Create a new Podcast Channel for your premium feed by going to “PowerPress” -> “Podcast Channels” … One thing to note here is that you can’t create a premium podcast feed from the “default channel” so you’ll have to create a second channel.
- Now you’ll protect your feed by clicking the name of your new channel, selecting the “Other Settings” tab, checking “Require user to be signed-in to access feed” and selecting either “MemberPress Active Member” or a specific MemberPress membership. If you select “MemberPress Active Member” then members who are active subscribers on any of your memberships will get access to the feed but if you select a single membership here then the member will need to be an active subscriber to that specific membership.
That’s it! Now when your members attempt to access a feed they’ll be asked to enter their membership username and password. Only those who have a username, password and are an active member of your membership site will be granted access.
