Category Podcasting

With Blubrry PowerPress, setting up Category based Podcasting or “Category Casting” is easy. This is one of the many features that makes Blubrry PowerPress stand out among the other Podcasting plugins for WordPress; you can completely extend and customize everything about your category feed including the title, language, description and even ping iTunes when you create podcasts in your category podcast feed.

To extend a category feed in your WordPress blog, navigate to the ‘Category Feeds’ section in PowerPress Settings. Note, you must be in Advanced Mode in order to access this screen.
