    This is not specific to the plugin, but it seems that Apple has removed the ability to ping the server to get your iTunes podcast updated faster. The link now redirects generically to the iTunes store.

    Just one forum post on this that might be worth following: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=13053565

    Thank you for making me aware of the changes and the link to the other forum!

    I have read the section about pinging the iTunes server in the iTunes Podcasting Resources last week. But as someone in the other forum said this section which described the 3 different ping methods is gone.

    I will look into this matter.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Maybe I have read about the different pinging methods in the German version of Making a Podcast - Erstellen von Podcasts. The section "Hinzuf├╝gen von Episoden" (en: Adding Episodes).

    Regards,

    The discussion in the Apple forum seems to show that Apple has withdrawn this update service. That is why I'm going to hide/remove the ping buttons in the next podPress version(s).

    But it seems that the Apple really updates the episodes list of a podcast at the iTunes Store every 24 hours.
