More iTunes Issues
« on: February 11, 2013, 01:56:09 PM »
I'm trying to resubmit my podcast to itunes. Long story short it's not on itunes anymore. I switched my podcasts to fall under the "podcasts" category/tag on my wordpress website. All my podcasts can be found at: http://agriculturalinsights.com/category/podcasts/

This is the URL I tried to submit to itunes, but it came back with this error message and I have no idea how to edit the XML file for the "podcasts" category. "Error parsing feed: Invalid XML: Error on line 186: the element type "meta" must be terminated by the matching end tag "</meta>".

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Maybe a mod could move this to "Wordpress Wizardry" ?

You submitted "http://agriculturalinsights.com/category/podcasts/"?

That's not a feed. That's just a link to a page. Feeds are in a different format.

Try: "http://agriculturalinsights.com/category/podcasts/feed"

This WordPress page has all kinds of info on the different feeds built into WP: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Feeds

OK, I tired that Josh, thank you. I think this is the way to go. However, I just got this message after I submitted that URL. "We had difficulty downloading episodes from your feed"  I'm really lost as to what to do at this point. I submitted that same url to feed validator and it looks fine, with the exception of this:

This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.

line 30, column 9: title should not be blank [help]

      <title></title>
         ^
line 30, column 9: Image title doesn't match channel title [help]

      <title></title>
