Submit to iTunes, Google Play and more
You have everything you need to build a flexible podcast website, submit to iTunes, Google Play Music or any other RSS based directories. The theme is designed for you to act as the host and publisher of your show. It will generate the required compliant RSS feed, so you don’t have to get your hands dirty with other additional plugins or third-party tweaks.
Import episodes from another publisher
You can easily extract episodes from an external RSS feed into your brand new WordPress site. Just paste the feed URL, select the category assigned to the new imported episodes and voila! There is also an advanced option to schedule the import process to run from time to time. The theme makes the difficult look easy, saving you hours of extra work.
Apply your personal touch in minutes
With a media-rich header area, a well-chosen image or video helps you create a visual impact that instantly engages fans. It is so easy to setup and it handles all the heavy lifting. The theme has just enough functions a practical design and the execution is backed by solid research that makes it easy and viable to be used by anyone, new or experienced.
Find out who’s listening and downloading
Yes, you deserve to know your audience. The backend panel offers daily, weekly, monthly statistics about total listens, listeners and listening sources. You get to see how many listeners use the site audio player, iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, direct downloads and many more. The audio files are permalinked, protecting the original ones, so nothing gets by without you knowing it.
Optimized for speed, developer friendly
Highly optimized with mobile first techniques, the theme preview scores 98% on the page speed grade and it is faster than 95% of all tested websites. Well written code allows developers to understand the theme and extend it with ease. Hooks are used to offer a better customization experience and the episode post type and podcast functionality is stored in a separate plugin.
Live preview, custom colors, custom logo
You have the ability to preview live changes of your options, to try out a different header image, primary color and page background color. Upload a logo image for the website, which will be placed in the header to reinforce your brand. Simple and to the point.
This is by far the best theme I’ve worked with. After importing the demo details, I had only two questions, both answered promptly by Liviu. I could not have had a better experience and my website does everything I need it to do for my podcast: episode page with built-in player, downloadable show notes, links to podcast platforms, great graphics. Perfection!
One of the best designs I’ve ever seen. We get so many compliments on the look of our platform and website from our listeners and readers. Well worth the investment.
This is a fantastic template, clean and easy to customize (within WP but also in the template files).
But most importantly Liviu provides exceptional customer support: very responsive and effective, thank you!
Absolutely fantastic theme for a podcast website! Super easy to get up and running — within a few minutes of tweaking images, colors, logos, etc. we had a top notch site customized to our brand. Castilo is fantastic.
Thanks Liviu for a great theme and providing good support and documentation. I really like the design of this theme, and it is quite simple to install and configure with WordPress. It is well tailored for podcasters as the podcast play button is built into the page in a well-designed way and also includes prominent ‘call to action’ buttons for encouraging listeners to subscribe/follow etc.
Awesome theme with exceptional customer support. I asked a quick question to the author and the response time was VERY fast, and answered exactly what I needed. Highly recommended!
Great theme and super fast customer support. Really happy with it and excited to create using it. I had some questions which were all answered in a few hours and really helped me out. Even a feature I was looking for was added in a day! Amazing!
Went beyond the call of duty with troubleshooting. Theme is simple and concise, exactly what I like.
I really like the simplicity of the design and how it includes a neatly organized way to manage podcast episodes. Not a lot of extra fluff that makes a theme heavy. Yet it includes everything that a podcaster looks for in a theme.
I love this theme and the price was an amazing bargain. Thank you for creating a theme that doesn’t use any of the typical page builders I love the clean code!
