Switching to Fireside is easy! First you will need to log into Fireside and click 'Import a Podcast'. Fireside Podcasts all get a URL like
mypodcast.fireside.fm. You can customize the
mypodcast prefix using the field provided then click 'Next'. Paste your old Squarespace RSS Feed URL* into the field provided and click 'Next'. Complete the following two steps then click 'Finish'. Once you have checked that your episodes have been successfully imported into Fireside you will then need to set up the redirect from your old host Squarespace.
- Log into Squarespace and from the Home Menu, click 'Pages'
- Hover over your podcasting Blog Page title, and click gear-icon next to the title to open Blog Page Settings
- Click the RSS tab
- Click Apple Podcasts
- Scroll down to Change Feed URL and select 'Moving from Squarespace'
- Enter your new Fireside RSS Feed URL** in the field
- Save your changes
Your redirect is now set up! We recommend keeping the redirect (and your podcast) active on Squarespace for at least 30-60 days after you've completed the steps above. This is to ensure all platforms catch the change as some platforms can be slower to update than others. Deleting the Blog Page or cancelling your site will disable the redirect.
