    Hi Duke,

    thank you for your report!

    This message has nothing to do with your image file(s). The problem is that the <link> element of the <channel> is slightly different from the URL in the <link> element of the <image> element in the source code of the RSS feed. The difference is that the last one has a trailing slash (.com/) while the first one ends with .com.
    The next podPress upgrade will include a fix for that.
    But until than do not worry to much. This is no big problem. The feed is valid without this bug fix. The message is only a recommendation. Most feed readers will accept the feed as it is.

    Regards,
    Tim

    Hi Tim,
    Thank you for the response. One more quick (probably dumb) question. Why when you search for the podcast on the online iTunes Store, the image does not show up?

    https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/open-kwong-dore-podcast-podcast/id616064939

    Just worried the image is showing up in some places and not others.

    Thanks,
    Duke

    This problem seems to related to old information in the Feedburner version of your RSS feed.
    http://feeds.feedburner.com/OpenKwongDorePodcastPodcast is the feed which is registered at the iTunes Store server. But the source code of this version of the feed includes this URL as the <url> of the <image> element (RSS image).
    The RSS feed of your blog shows a more current version which has already the smaller itunes-logo-small2.jpg file as the RSS image.

    Feedburner stores the feed in a cache memory and updates its version not immediately. But there is a way to trigger an updates. Once this version is current and the iTunes Store updates its information then the RSS image will probably be visible in the Store.

    Hi Tim,
    Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I’ll be a bit more patient with the images! And thanks for the plugin – working great!
