Libsyn Podcast Properties

The Libsyn Podcast Component has the following properties:

  • Component Id - Sets the name of the Libsyn Podcast Component in the app. The Component Id can be referenced using JavaScript to add more functionality to the app as needed.

    Pro Tip: It is a best practice to use only letters without spaces for the Component Id. Symbols, spaces, and numbers are not recommended.

  • Libsyn ID - The episode ID will always be a numeric value. Learn more about how to find the ID from Libsyn's embed codes.
  • Player Color - Sets the color of the Libsyn Podcast. There are two ways to set the Player Color: Click the Color Swatch to choose from the app’s Color Palette or enter the hex code in the text field.
  • Display Share Button - Toggles on or off whether the Share icon appears in the Libsyn Podcast Component.

Libsyn Podcast Placement Settings

The Placement Settings for the Component sets which column(s) the Component will appear. Each Page of the app can have a different number of columns that are set in the Layout section of the Page Settings. The following Placement settings are available for this Component:

  • Column Start - Sets the column where the Component will start. 
  • Column Span - Sets how many columns the Component will span. 
  • Pro Tip: The Libsyn Podcast Component will appear best on mobile devices when it is set to span all columns of a page. Placing multiple Libsyn Podcast Components next to one another can cause them to overlap on smaller screen sizes.
  • Padding - Sets how much space will appear on the top, bottom, left, and right of the Component. When building a Page with multiple Components, the Padding will determine the overall spacing between Components.
  • Display Mode - Sets how the Component is displayed. If Both is selected, the Component will always show. Both are the default option. If Optimal is selected, the Component will only show if the browser supports the app. The main supported browsers are Chrome and Safari. If Degraded is selected, the Component will only show if the browser does not support the app. The main unsupported browser is Internet Explorer.
