Support » Plugin: podPress » [Plugin: podPress] Can't validate my feed

  • Resolved AlChron77


    I hope I don’t sound too ignorant, I searched but couldn’t find a topic that addressed this. I am very new to podcasting and hope this question isn’t stupid. I can’t get the feed to validate. I have updated the directory that contains my media files and was under the impression that podpress would create the feed for me. The feed URL listed in the “Standard Settings” section in the “Feed/iTunes Settings” menu says but when I press the “validate” button, I get this message:


    This feed does not validate.

    Server returned HTTP Error 404: Not Found [help]

    I have the podcast file (I have only done one episode so far) in the directory listed in the “URL of media files directory” in the “General Settings” menu. What am I doing wrong? Is there something I missed or did I not do something properly? Any help is very much appreciated!

    There are not stupid questions and that you have searched for an existing thread is very exemplary.

    The feed is feed which contains only posts if there are posts that contain media files that were added with podPress. But you have at the moment only one published post which has no podPress attachment. That is why the podcast feed contains no entries besides the channel information and such a feed is not valid.

    But you can use in the settings and validate the regular RSS feed ( which is going to contain the podcast episodes, too. It will contain all posts. The podcast feed only the podPress podcast posts.
    Or create a post with an podPress attached media file and the feed is going to be valid.
