All of the Wordpress Podcasting plugins I have seen allow you to easily insert a podcast into a post. Is there any way to automate the creation of the post (and the podcast feed) by simply uploading the podcast into a specific directory?

For example I could upload 10 podcasts into the /media/ directory and then it would automatically create a post for each of the 10 files I uploaded. Ideally it would take the information from the ID3 tags.

The key factor here is not having to do anything in wordpress after the initial setup.

  • Sounds like a good plugin idea :) Commented Aug 24, 2011 at 9:48

I've created a very basic plugin for that now.

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

  • Thanks Paul. Not sure when I'm going to have the chance to try it out but I'll let you know when I do.
