[resolved] Podcast Feed URL redirecting to Podcast Page. (4 posts)

    We've been using Podpress and we're very happy with it. But the other day, one of our podpress URLs started redirecting to the podcast page.

    http://stevemurrell.com/feed/podcast used to work. Now it's automatically going to http://stevemurrell.com/podcasts

    I don't know what happened! No new plugins. No settings changed, except that I added an iTunes ID. But when I removed it, the redirection still happens.

    I tried testing the feed URL on FeedValidator, and it automatically tests http://stevemurrell.com/feed, instead. What's going on?


    Incredibly confused,

    Hi Sarah,

    it seems that that feed with the slug name "podcast" is currently not active or does not exist.
    If you open the feed URL (http://stevemurrell.com/feed/podcast) with the default Permalink scheme: http://stevemurrell.com/?feed=podcast then you will probably get the error message: ERROR: podcast is not a valid feed template. which indicates that the feed is at least deactivated.

    Please control the settings in section podPress Feeds on the page podPress > Feed/iTunes Settings. (Among the first options of each podPress Feeds are a check box which de-/activates the feed and a input field for the slug name.)

    Oh. You're right! I can't believe I missed that checkbox. Thank you so much for the prompt reply!

    I have tried both urls in the custom url box in the widget and can't get it to work. Suggestions? I have a sub feed for only certain categories- I'm going nuts.
