  • I have a long standing podcast with 500+ episodes. I can’t put them all on the RSS feed. Some listeners want to be able to download old episodes with their podcasting apps so I want to create a separate ‘classics’ feed that shows the first 200-300 episodes (or maybe two feeds, each with 200 items)

    Is it possible to create a new podcast channel that just lists episodes in chronological order instead of reverse chronological order?

    You can use either Category Podcasting or Custom Channels to add multiple podcast feeds to an existing website.

    The easiest way to manage how episodes are displayed is to alter their publish dates/times. If you set the older episodes to have more recent publish dates/times, they’ll appear in the feed above the newer episodes.

    I don’t want to alter existing episodes. I want to create a new feed that lists the episodes in a different order. Is that not possible?

    Hello @clockworkjoe,

    You can easily select episodes 1 – 300 and put them in a category in WordPress called “2016 season”, assuming the first 300 were in the year 2016.

    As far as re-ordering them how they appear, that is tricky. You can use the iTunes order field to order them how you like, but applications do not necessarily honor that setting, except for iTunes episode ordering will for the most part always be based on release date /pub date in descending order with the newest first and oldest last.

    You can also use WordPress tags and then use taxonomy podcasting to make podcast feeds for the specific tag you use. Just as time consuming as category podcasting and it opens the opportunity for error if the tag is entered wrong, just giving you more options.
