Broadcast Archives

Broadcast archives allow you to make your broadcast content available online and share it on social networks, via bookmark sites, and by RSS. Each broadcast can belong to as many of your broadcast archives as you wish.

The above image shows a screenshot of a broadcast archive containing two (2) broadcasts. Broadcasts are automatically grouped by month and year.

To manage your broadcast archives, choose Broadcasts / Archives / Show List from the menu bar.

Click the Link or RSS icon to open the archive in a new browser tab or window.

You can then copy the URL from the browser’s URL bar for use on websites, blogs, emails, and social network status updates.

  • Public name – this is the name of the archive as it will appear on the archive itself. Leave this blank for no name to appear.
  • Description – this is a private description of the archive. It does not appear on the archive itself.
  • Public description – this description appears on the archive. Leave blank for no description to appear.
  • Status – choose the online and offline status of the archive. The archive can be viewed only when the status is online.

The Broadcasts Tab

  • Broadcasts in archive – choose the broadcasts that will appear in this archive. Only broadcasts that remain in the broadcast queue will appear in the archive.

The Sharing Tab

  • Enable sharing – check this box to enable social bookmark sharing icons in the archive. You need to sign up with a social bookmarking site such as and grab the HTML code from their site to paste into arpReach. These sites usually allow you to specify which web page their links will lead to. From the HTML code they give you to do that, you need to insert {url} instead of an actual URL so that arpReach can insert the correct link to the broadcast.
    Here is an example code showing the use of {url} in HTML code supplied by the social bookmark site. This code is pasted into the Share/bookmark code box and will make the sharing options available in the archive view.
