    Hello guys,

    My podcast feed url was found invalid. How can I correct this?

    Do you have any other plugins active that may be conflicting? Do you have any posts published?

    jdev & wpforchurch,

    Thanks for your help. This is the site for my church. I'd love to get this working so I don't have to hand code my xml podcast file. We now have a good bit of data in it, and it should be easier to take the next step.

    FYI, there were some random errors in the descriptions. I retyped them to be sure no other code was in them and the feed is now valid!

    I'm in the process of switching from our old feed ...

    ... to what I think is our new feed (this is different than what my webmaster posted above)(the one below came from the settings page in Sermon Manager):

    How long do I wait before I get rid of my old podcast?

    I have the same problem. Get this message trying to validate our feed:

    This feed does not validate.

    Server returned HTTP Error 404: Not Found [help]
    HTTP error with content that looks like a feed [help]

    Can't see what I can do to fix this. Any ideas?

    The only way I could fix it was to goto Sermons - Settings. Make sure everything is correct in every single blank.

    Fill out all the blanks for each sermon when you edit it. I had some funky content killing my feed, but it wasn't a 404 error. I'm not sure it's seeing your feed at all. Look at the bottom of the settings page to doublecheck the location of your podcast.

    I'm a wordpress newbie, but you might want to save your permalinks - whatever they are. Read the top of your settings page. Good luck.

    You also need to have at least one post published or WordPress won't generate a proper feed.

    If your feed is not validating because it has two blank lines at the top of the XML document, it is because of a conflicting plugin such as Blubrry. You not only have to deactivate but delete the files to regenerate a proper XML document that will validate.

    That's probably correct!
