Episode settings

A podcast episode contains many information. In the episode editor, you can find all the options you need at a single glance, including the features for <itunes:explicit>, <itunes:type>, <itunes:season>, and <itunes:episode>.

Episode settings

Episode URL

When creating an episode, if you didn't fill the URL part, Typlog will generate a URL automatically. You can change this URL later in the episode settings.

To change the format of how the full URL should be, please read our documentation on Custom routes.

Season & Episode

Season and Episode should be numbers. These numbers will be added into RSS feed for <itunes:season>, and <itunes:episode>. Podcast players will display this information, and users can filter your episodes by season.

If you fill season and episode will 0, Typlog will not add <itunes:season>, <itunes:episode> tags into RSS feed.

Explicit language

If your content is inappropriate for children, please turn this option on. It would add a <itunes:explicit>yes</itunes:explicit> tag to RSS feed. Phones with parent control can filter this content.

Hosts & Guests

Typlog can filter episodes by hosts and guests. Most of our Podcast themes can display hosts and guests on the episode page.

Hosts and Guests

To add new hosts or guests, head over to Settings → Authors to add a new author profile.
