podPress version: 184.108.40.206
I’m not sure when this behaviour began but I was notified by a user that our (podcast’s) feed was giving an itunes:duration of 00:00:01 for every episode.
I know that I had previously used “Auto Detect” for every podcast’s duration and I’m fairly certain the duration was saved but now if I load up a post with an attached podcast the duration is blank.
Pressing “Auto Detect” again properly detects the duration but after Updating the post this information was lost again.
I determined that the problem was “Auto Detect” was putting an extra space character at the beginning of the duration (link shows screencap of the space selected).
If I manually remove this space and then Update the post, the duration error is fixed both in the podPress settings for that post and the itunes:duration setting in the podcast feed.
Though this solves the problem and I can do it manually for future podcasts, having to go back through over a hundred podcast posts is a bit daunting.
