    Our podcast feed http://fortsetzungfolgt.net/?feed=podcast is working properly in any browser, but in iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/podcast/id389955596 is no new entry / update after 9/29/11

    and we have no ecommerce plugin installed

    podpress used v8.8.6.3

    maybe you can help?


    This is a valid RSS feed.

    You are correct the feed seems to be valid. But I have had to try to validate your podcast feed a couple of times before the validator has showed me this result.
    The other times I've got only the message "Server returned timed out". (I waited some minutes between the attempts to validate the feed.)

    I guess this could mean that the server of your blog is not the fastest one or that the server was busy an hour ago.
    However if this happens when the iTunes Store server tries to update the feed information then the server is not able to update.

    One thing which could probably help to reduce the loading time of the feed, is to reduce the number of posts in the feed (see Settings > Reading - http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Reading_Screen).

    The other thing which I have notice while looking into the XML code of your RSS feed is that you have the itunes:new-feed-url option activated/enabled. This may eventually lead to irritations.
    But since the new URL is the URL of the current podcast feed you can deactivate/disable this without a problem.

    Besides these two ideas I have no further helping thought so far.
