Blubrry Podcasting releases user interface update to free WordPress plugin PowerPress


Blubrry has made significant changes to its WordPress plugin, PowerPress, focusing on the user experience and interface. The plugin is meant for publishing podcasts directly on your WordPress website and includes numerous features for podcast distribution and syndication, such as Apple Podcast, Google Podcast Spotify, etc, podcast players and the capability to manage multiple shows on a single site.

The Welcome and Destinations tabs have seen major changes that complement the fresh new appearance of the plugin overall. The Welcome section now displays relevant information to a podcaster’s show as well. The Destinations tab is much more intuitive and easy to navigate, featuring 11 directories and apps.

PowerPress was first released in 2009, and work on the plugin for the past six months has been dedicated to improving current features. Smaller, one-off updates have been made in recent months leading up to the release of 8.3, all contributing to the overall upgrade for users. These updates have made the plugin easier to navigate, and more efficient for the podcasting community.
