    Hello @jonahcoyote,

    Do you want this thread here or on the blubrry.com froum? I did reply with a question that you can answer in the forum thread you are linking to if you want additional help. As you can read in the reply on the forum, I offered to schedule a gotomeeting session with you to review your situation.

    Thanks and please let me know if you want to continue the conversation on the Blubrry forum or here on the WP forum.

    Thanks,
    Angelo

    Hey Angelo,

    Thanks for the reply. I did email you to schedule something and hadn’t heard back, and I couldn’t login to the Blubrry forum so I posted here. I’m happy to continue wherever is best for you. Please let me know.

    FYI, our custom post type is “podcasts” so it shouldn’t cause a conflict with the internal post type “podcast” right?

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the delay. Angelo and the dev team are at a conference this week and have limited time to handle support issues. I have this thread saved and will remind Angelo to check in as soon as possible.

    Thanks for the heads up Shawn!

    Hello @jonahcoyote,

    Sorry for the delay. Yes the post type you picked should not conflict.

    Go to PowerPRess > Post type podcasting and see what the feed URL is suggested there. If the post type is “podcasts”, , then the URL should look something like example.com/podcasts/feed/podcast-feed-slug/ The URL you are providing is using the singular name “podcast”, example.com/podcast/feed/infinite-smile-podcasts/.

    Thanks,
    Angelo

    Hi Angelo,

    Ok yes I see what you’re talking about. Our feed url is http://infinitesmile.org/podcast/feed/infinite-smile-podcasts/ but it sounds like it should be http://infinitesmile.org/podcasts/feed/infinite-smile-podcasts/

    So how can we fix this?

    Thanks,
    Jonah

    Try changing your post type ‘s slug name from “podcast” to “podcasts”.

    Hey Angelo,

    I did this and it changed the URL of our feed to http://infinitesmile.org/podcasts/feed/infinite-smile-podcasts/ – but I’m still not seeing the media file for the latest podcast in the feed. I cleared permalinks and re-saved the latest podcast (that does have a media file in it) to no avail.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Jonah

    Hello Jonah,

    Let me think. Are you running any caching plugins? Can you double check the following is configured for the post type?

    hierarchical = false
    capability_type = post
    rewrite = true
    has_archive = true or set to a “unique slug name”

    Thanks,
    Angelo

    Hey Angelo,

    Thanks for the reply! I checked all the CPT settings and everything looks ok: https://cl.ly/o6qT

    We were running WP Super Cache, but I cleared everything and also deactivated the plugin, re-saved the most recent podcast with a media file, and it’s still not showing up in the feed (the item is, but not the media file).

    Anything else we can check?

    Hey Angelo,

    Quick follow up: I figured out what the issue was with the media files not showing up in the feed. I had this code in our functions.php file:

    
    function addPodcastToFeed($qv) {
         if (isset($qv['feed'])) {
            $qv['post_type'] = array('podcasts');
        }
        
        return $qv;
    }
    add_filter('request', 'addPodcastToFeed');
    

    Removing that got the files back in the feed.

    We do still have the original issue where the media file is blank on episodes even though the enclosure exists for the podcast in our feed. Can you please help with that now?

    Thanks!

    I spoke too soon. Now our feed @ http://infinitesmile.org/podcast/feed/infinite-smile-podcasts/ is incomplete. It’s showing the last episode published, which is good, but it’s only showing 5 podcasts (when our settings are set to show 300), and it’s skipping over episodes.

    Please help!

    FYI, I can add that bit of code above:

    
    function addPodcastToFeed($qv) {
         if (isset($qv['feed'])) {
            $qv['post_type'] = array('podcasts');
        }
        
        return $qv;
    }
    add_filter('request', 'addPodcastToFeed');
    

    And get all podcasts to show, but then there are no media enclosures in the feed.

    Please help guys, our feed has not been working for weeks now and we need a solution. We’d love to stay with Powerpress, but it’s really not turning out to be a solid and reliable solution.

    Thanks,
    Jonah
