Support » Fixing WordPress » Podcasting

    I checked the support codex pages and it says podcasting is supported, and as long as I link to a mp3 using its full URL it should generate the enclose tag in the rss2 feed.

    howver, mine does not!

    As you can see, I tried entering the enclosure tag manually within one of my test posts, but it didn’t work, iTunes won’t recognise it.

    What am I doing wrong?
    Can I edit the rss feed tags so I can include the iTunes-specific tags, like copyright and the stuff?


    Ps. What I’m trying to do is migrate from the libsyn system, I will still keep the files there but i want to have control over the rss feeds, amongst other things libsyn won’t support spanish characters so everything looks quite crappy everytime I have to enter a local character.

    Dropped the RSS url into itunes and it works fine. You latest podcast came across no problemo.



    I know, I added the custom tag “enclosed”.

    I would still like to add the custom itune tags to the rss feed, when i edit the rss2.php file and put a <itunes:copyright> tag for example, I get a xml parsing error.. how can I add this:

    <title>Rosa Vientos Podcast</title>
    <description>La forma fácil de escuchar la Rosa de los Vientos en Internet</description>
    <copyright>© 2005 (sitio y podcast) – Onda Cero (contenido de audio)</copyright>
    <lastBuildDate><?php echo mysql2date(‘D, d M Y H:i:s +0000’, get_post_time(‘Y-m-d H:i:s’, true), false); ?></lastBuildDate>
    Podcast de la Rosa de Los Vientos, con los programas diarios de La Rosa de los Vientos.
    Copyright: Onda Cero Radio por le programa, por el podcast.
    <itunes:category text=”International”>
    <itunes:category text=”Spanish”/>
    <itunes:name>José M. Muñoz-Olaya</itunes:name>
    <itunes:image href=””/>
    <title>Rosa Vientos Podcast</title>



    I get this error message:
    XML Parsing Error: prefix not bound to a namespace
    Line Number 10, Column 1:<itunes:category text=”International”>

    I am having a similar problem.
    does not work. I followed the instructions in the forum as to how to figure out your podcast feed URL which is clearly not the correct feed URL b/c he’s the error I get when I try to validate it in iTunes.

    line 50, column 14: Undefined dc_creator element: ADMINNICENAME [help]

    line 50, column 31: XML parsing error: <unknown>:50:31: mismatched tag [help]


    I even installed podPress plugin and filled in all the info I could. Its a great plugin, but why is it not made clear how to get your RSS feed URL to work right? there is no explanation….

    Go admin > Users > Your profile and give yourself a “nickname”.

    Thanks so much for your help, I created a nickname. However I am still getting this error in regards to the comment feed, which doesn’t really matter I guess?

    This feed is valid, but may cause problems for some users. We recommend fixing these problems.

    line 62, column 3: wfw:commentRSS should be wfw:commentRss (2 occurrences) [help]

    <wfw:commentRSS></wfw: ..

    It has been posted several times: you can edit your rss2 file and change it from RSS > to Rss.
