Podcast Importer SecondLine


The Podcast Importer plugin helps to easily import existing podcasts into WordPress. You can import your podcast into the regular WordPress posts or into a custom post type (if you have an existing one).
The plugin fully supports popular WordPress podcasting plugins such as PowerPress, Seriously Simple Podcasting, Simple Podcast Press, and works perfectly with podcast themes developed by SecondLineThemes

The plugin supports importing episodes into existing custom post types, assign categories, import featured images and more. Additionally, the plugin enables continuous import of podcast RSS feeds, so every time you release a new podcast episode, it could be automatically created within WordPress. You can also set multiple import schedules and import different podcasts from separate sources at the same time. (For example, when importing separate podcasts from separate feeds into one website)

To use the plugin, simply run a new import under „Tools -> Podcast Importer SecondLine“ via the main menu that appears in your WordPress dashboard. Set the different options and if you need a continuous import process for future episodes, make sure to hit that checkbox before running the import process.
You can disable a schedueld import at any time by simply deleting the import entry.

The plugin currently support automatic embed of audio player from the following podcast hosting providers: Transistor, Anchor, Simplecast, Podbean, Whooshkaa, Omny.

About SecondLineThemes

SecondLineThemes is developing unique WordPress themes and plugins for Podcasters. Our tools are very popular among podcasters. To hear more about us please check our website:


  • Import your podcast episodes based on multiple options.
  • Add multiple continuous import processes of separate podcasts.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/podcast-importer-secondline directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ screen in WordPress.
  3. Run a new import via the „Tools -> Podcast Importer Secondline“ section in your WordPress admin panel.
  4. If needed, delete any of the scheduled import processes.


The import failed or takes too much time to process?

You can run the improter multiple times, as it will never import the same post twice. Once all episodes are imported, only future ones would be imported, assuming you selected the continuous import option.

Do you support podcast feeds from any host?

Sure. All types of podcast feeds can be imported, as long as they are in an RSS/XML format. If you feel something is missing, please reach out and we will ensure to look into it.

The import does not work for my podcast feed

First of all, make sure you are filling in a valid URL, of a valid podcast RSS feed. Second, make sure your server is up to modern requirements – we recommend PHP 7 or above.

I'd gone through several different plug-ins before settling on Podcast Importer SecondLine. They all seemed convoluted. This one needed the podcast's RSS feed URL, a couple of selections, and it was off and running. Ran into one minor issue, and the developer jumped on it to work out a fix. Quality customer service. Highly recommend this one.

I would be doing a disservice to SecondLine themes if I didn’t comment on how dedicated and supportive they were to help me figure this out. I have never before experienced such great customer service in all my years dealing with plugins. Thank you for all your help SecondLine.

I've been looking for a good solution to this forever. I've tried RSS importing plugins, but this does exactly what I want it to: it imports all my podcast episodes, and cross-posts them to my blog as posts. It will also detect future published episodes in my podcast feed, and import those automatically.
