WordPress WednesdaysThe Odiogo Listen Button adds an extra layer of visitor-friendly goodness to your WordPress powered site. This plugin from Odiogo adds a “Listen Now” button to your blog posts, so visitors can download or listen to your Odiogo podcasts.

I like this plugin because I am already using Odiogo to provide text-to-speech for my posts, and I want to give my visitors an easy way to download and listen to my posts when they are on the go – just another option in this multi-media world!

Installation is easy – but you must have a Feed ID from Odiogo. If you don’t have one, sign up on the website. Odiogo is a free service. Read more about it in Subscribe to the Geek Girl’s Audio Feed!, Announcement: How to Subscribe to thepinkc Podcast and Turn your blog posts into podcasts! 

Once you download the plugin, follow the instructions below:

  1. Upload directory odiogo_listen_button to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory via FTP.
  2. Login to your WordPress admin account.
  3. Click menu Plugins and Activate the Odiogo Listen Button plugin.
  4. Click menu Options > Odiogo Listen Button.
  5. Enter your Odiogo Feed ID and click Save.
  6. Click menu Presentation > Widgets (or Sidebar Widgets depending on your WP version).
  7. Drag and drop Odiogo Subscribe Button from Available Widgets to Sidebar.
  8. Click Save Changes.

Alternatively, you can use the WordPress plugin Plugin Central to automatically install the plugin from your WordPress Administration Panel, then follow the directions above starting at step #3.

  1. You might want to try http://www.vocalfruits.com. With this new web based podcasting service, any registered user can create a podcast from any RSS feed in no time. Other useful and innovative services include aggregating a number of RSS feeds into one podcast or creating your personal podcasts that you can update by emailing to your personal VocalFruits address. The service also provides for a web browser version and a mobile version ideal for listening to content on a mobile phone and other mobile devices. VocalFruits is equally a useful application for content owners to provide their readers with an audio output of their content.

    • No, I do not know of a way to see how many times my posts have been listened to, but I know I have three subscribers. :)

  4. Thanks for the suggestion! I love finding useful plugins for wordpress. There are so many that sound great, but when you try to implement them they don’t work the way you had hoped. Having those that use them suggest the good ones makes it easier to jump into them.

    Thanks!
