PRX Dovetail now offers the option to create multiple feeds!
This useful feature allows you to create additional customizable versions of your feed ideal for subscription services such as Supercast and Patreon – right alongside your podcast’s public RSS feed settings.
What exactly can I do with this?
As subscription options for podcast listeners become the new normal we wanted an easy way for you to create additional private feeds to share with those who support you directly through a subscription. These additional feeds will feature the same great content – but don’t have to include ads and offer secure authorization tokens for access.
Customizable feed slugs allow you to track downloads coming from each specific feed you’ve created.
Make sure you're logged into PRX Publish to access this feature.
Default Feed Settings
The default feed dropdown contains the default feed settings for your podcast. Here is where you’ll find your Public Feed URL, Enclosure Prefix information, and additional settings for capping or restricting the metadata for your feed.
In the gray banner in the FEEDS section is where you can find your Private PRX Feed URL. This will be your origin feed and should point to your Public Feed URL.
How to create an Additional Private Ad-free Feed
- Add Feed
- Set Feed Label, Slug, and Name
- If you’d like the feed to be private; select private to ensure the feed remains unlisted and set authorization tokens as needed.
- Select which Ad Zones you’d like to have included within this feed
- Share the new private feed with subscribers!
Navigate to the RSS Feeds tab on the left-hand side of your Series settings in Publish.
Select + Add Feed toward the bottom of the page
Fill in your Feed Label, Feed Slug, and Feed Name in a way that differentiates it from your main feed and makes clear any information about this particular feed you’d like to be visible in the URL. You can see in the screenshot below where those entries appear:
To make your feed Private select the Private checkbox and generate any authorization tokens you might need.
Deselect any adzones that you prefer to omit from this feed. For example, for a private feed that is free of all paid ads, deselect Paid Ads (doing this will not affect your main feed).
