You give the plugin your Auphonic username and password. Give it a tag to search for, I keep it simple and call it “podcast”. Next, choose the category you want for the post. I like to keep the post in draft status, but you can have it automatically publish it. Then save.
At this point, you have two options:
Manually run that trigger whenever you have a new episode to add. But then that isn’t automation, is it?
Create a unique URL that can be used to create a cronjob to automatically download any new episodes. While I could provide instructions on that, each web host does things differently. I would suggest reaching out to them to learn how to properly set that up.
You can also visit the plug-in page (linked above) for more detailed instructions.
This is how I have automated my system. I record, I save and upload, I set my preset, I process, I then visit my site later and publish. Total time it takes me is a few minutes.
