How do I publish an episode in Publish?

Step 1: log into Publish at publish.prx.org.

Done? Okay, let's go.

Step 2: Create an episode

You will see your series on the Publish homepage with a list of all the recent and upcoming episodes. Their status will be Published, Scheduled, or Drafts.  

To make a new episode, click the blue "Create an episode" button in the upper right corner.

Production notes are for internal use only, so they won't be published to your feed. You can use them to make notes about your episode in case you are working with a remote team.

Step 4: Upload your files

When you created your series in Publish you also set up your audio template(s). Now that you are making an episode you will need to choose ONE template to use for this episode.

Step 6: Podcast Episode Info

This is the "meta-data" Apple Podcasts need to help categorize your episode. Whatever you put here will override the series designation for this episode.

If this episode exists on your website, override the Episode URL with a link to your site. We create the beta landing page as a backup.

Make sure you come back in and mark old trailers as full episodes so they don't linger at the top of your episode list in podcasting apps forever.

Step 7: Grab and Embed

We generate an embeddable player for each episode. Grab the link or iframe and use as you wish!

Step 8: Publish or Schedule

On the left side of the screen you should see a floating bar that displays your publish status. At this point it should read "Draft" in the Status window. You can change this status using the drop-down menu.

To publish your episode at a future date, you will want to "schedule" your episode. Select the date and time you'd like your episode to go live. If dropping multiple episodes at once, make sure to offset them by a few seconds.

Your episode will drop into your feed when the designated time arrives. However, you can also publish your episode to drop immediately by changing your episode status to "published."
