    Just last week or so the podcast were just fine, for some reason after publishing two new podcast they are not being seen in iTunes. I went to my feed vaildator and it says it works but had some things I could fix, not sure how.

    I see everything in your feed also on your iTunes listing. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/redemption-point-church/id663368770?mt=2 Are you sure you had a problem?

    There is a delay between when you publish and when iTunes gets the episodes. iTunes literally pulls your feed on a daily basis, sometimes this is delayed a day or two, but their logic system is pretty efficient and is known to pick up new episodes in the matter of hours for shows that publish on a regular basis.

    Hey Angelo!

    Having a similar issue on our podcast. However, we may just have to wait a couple days to see changes. We have yet to see our iTunes Podcast image change, or our main iTunes podcast title. Our most recent uploads haven't populated on iTunes either, although our WordPress feed is working perfectly!

    I'm having this problem with posts that I've published in early June not showing in iTunes.

    Joshua.plays, I looked up your feed you gave to iTunes (http://www.saintpeters.me/sermons/feed/) when I load it in a web browser, it redirects to a web page. You need that URL above to redirect to a feed, particularly a podcast feed. I am guessing you are using category podcasting and that you want the URL to redirect to http://www.saintpeters.me/category/sermons/feed/, but only you will know for sure if that's right. Info on redirecting feeds: http://create.blubrry.com/manual/syndicating-your-podcast-rss-feeds/changing-your-podcast-rss-feed-address-url/

    CodeGeek, we need some info about your podcast to help you, such as the URL to your listing on itunes.

    What's the URL to your podcast listing on iTunes? More than likely there is some other problem (like FeedBurner).

    I don't see anything wrong with your feed. FeedValidator.org though has been having site issues, I would not rely on FeedValidator.org at this point.

    Hi there. I am having a similar problem with my feed not updating in itunes. I have a custom channel and it appears to not be validating properly. http://stevegjones.com/blog/feed/interviews/ is where my feed lives and it seems like the last four episodes or so haven't updated in itunes. Just updated the plugin and that didn't seem to do anything. Any help appreciated!

    What I see here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/dr.-steve-g.-jones/id515841081?mt=2
    Matches what I see here: http://stevegjones.com/blog/feed/interviews/

    Your feed does not load in Firefox though, and I suspect it will have problems with a lot of other podcast directories. It appears some theme or plugin is adding javascript to the rss content. What ever theme or plugin is adding this should be contacted, ask them to use the is_feed() WordPress function to know when not to add players to the content.

    		<source src="http://stevegjones.com/media/audio_interviews/interview_steve_g_jones_hypnotic_misconceptions.mp3" type="audio/mp3" />

    		</object>
    	</audio>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    	$('#wp_mep_1').mediaelementplayer({
    		m:1
    
    		,features: ['playpause','current','progress','duration','volume','tracks','fullscreen']
    		,audioWidth:640,audioHeight:30
    	});
    });
    </script>
