Podcast Subscribe Buttons


This plugin helps to easily include 40+ custom and Podcast-specific Subscribe Buttons anywhere within your site with a simple shortcode.
The Podcast Subscribe Buttons are intended for podcasters and therefore the list of companies/icons only include podcast-related companies. (Need a new icon? Let us know!)

With the Podcast Subscribe Buttons plugin, you could display links to subscribe to your podcast across various external podcast platforms, those links may include regular links to your pages on external podcast platforms, direct links to RSS feeds, or URI links to open directly in an external application.

To use the plugin, simply create a new „Subscribe Button“ via the menu that appears in your WordPress dashboard, adjust the default settings and links, and display the button via a shortcode anywhere within your site. See example below:
[podcast_subscribe id=“1789″]

If you're a podcaster who has a WordPress page for your podcast episodes, this plugin is a must have. Easy setup, and just about every network, platform, and directory you can imagine (and if they don't have it, they'll add it...just ask!) Great support, and looks beautiful and functional on your web page. Get this. You will love it!

While I generally try to minimize the number of plugins I use, and I could just make the links in WP's editor or HTML, I use this plugin on all the show sites I manage. Fact is, it's lightweight, ease for anyone to use, and the dev is responsive af. Post something in the Support Form here, and they'll get to it. Like, actually do the thing! Anyway, just wanted to leave this as a thank you to the dev but also to say that yes, you should install this plugin.

Works much better than the iframe solution my client had previously. Easy to customize with CSS, too. Developer is very responsive, and that's impressive for a free plugin!
