What does "locked" mean when importing a podcast?

"Lock" your podcast to prevent it from being imported onto another host.

In order to prevent unwanted copying/importing of your content, you can "lock" a podcast, which means the podcast cannot be imported into another account or another hosting company.

RedCircle RSS feeds can be locked by updating the Podcast is Locked checkbox in your Podcast Settings. Hosting companies that respect the 'locked' tag will not allow your show to be imported into their system until you unlock the podcast.

If you're trying to import your podcast onto RedCircle and receive an error message about the podcast being locked, then you'll need to unlock your podcast with your current hosting setup. Try looking for the lock feature in your settings pages, on your current host's support website, or by contacting their support team.
