    I have a WordPress Blog. http://www.thisweekinforex.com/blog
    From this Blog, I have been attempting to set up a Podcast using the
    Podcast RSS Feed generated in the account.
    http://thisweekinforex.com/blog/?feed=podcast
    PS: The main feed is: http://thisweekinforex.com/blog/?feed=rss2
    I have tried using plugins from Podpress, Powerpress and Pocast Settings TSG. All generate this same RSS Frrd for Podcasting
    Neither of these feeds validates properly.
    When I submit to Itunes, I get the following error message:
    "We had difficulty reading this feed.Bad http result code 404"
    I have contacted Itunes support and they say the problem can only be addressed by WordPress. Please help! I have had to cancel episodes of my broadcast as a result of the inability to configure the Podcast.
    Please tell me that i don not have to set up an entirely new wordpress account. Thanking you in advance.

    How are you attaching the file for this podcast? I believe you are doing something wrong.

    LOok at that link I provided... It is your main RSS source. NONE of your RSS feeds work, because of on e mistake somewhere.

    Are you telling your podcast plugin that your podcast file is on your computer?

    It's looking here for a file... You need to actually upload your file to your server, and link to it there

    SO basically, nothing seems to be broken with WordPress, your plugins, or your feed.... you are making some kind of error here, which hopefully we can work through

    Interesting read. I am also having trouble with 404 errors and am ready to pull my hair out. There has to be an incompatibility issue somewhere as I cannot get my podcast to work. All I get is 404 errors when I try to validate. I think I've read about every post on this forum regarding this issue.
