Pre installation notes

1. There may be bugs. So be forewarned. As with all plugins, there’s always a possibility that it can break or cause incompatibilities with other plugins installed on your site.
2. The plugin “will not work” with other podcast publishing plugins enabled. So be sure to disable them if you have one currently installed (Blubrry Powerpress, ) before proceeding with the installation of the Libsyn plugin.
3. You need to have a Libsyn hosting account.
4. You’ll also need a PHP 5.3 or higher

Once you have all those checked, you can go ahead and proceed with the actual installation.

1. Log into your Libsyn account and click on the green arrow in the upper right hand corner, then go to Manage WordPress Plugins
