Ever since about March 22, the podcast that I publish using WordPress displays nothing in the "Artist" column in iTunes. It had previously been working, so I've been trying to figure out what had changed in my process that was causing me to lose that info, but I couldn't find it.
However, I just realized that the same problem started afflicting some podcasts that I subscribe to, and it happened to all of them that same week. I've been able to show that one of them is using WordPress as well; in the case of NPR, I couldn't tell if they were using WP or not.
Still, I think it's pretty clear that something has changed in iTunes that loses the Artist column info on podcasts being published with Word Press. I don't recall, but maybe there was an iTunes update that week.
What can be done?!
