    I am now to wordpress and new to blogging and podcasting. I installed WordPress and download Podpress and unpacked the zip file into the plug in directory. I looked at all the config stuff and did not change anything,

    I wrote a blog and entered the information for my mp3 file.
    1. Where should the file exist initially? On my local system? in my upload directory? Please advise

    The player in the blog could not find it, so I created the directory tree it ws looking for and it finds it now.

    I tries to submit it to itunes and all the author information is missing. I entered the information in the itunes feed page, but there is no submit button. I clicked the submit link on the top of the page, but the fields in itunes are empty after I put in the feed url.

    2. How do I make this all work with itunes?

    I really need an initial step-by step for submitting my first podcast to podpress and itunes. PLEASE

    I REALLY need to change the settings in podpress_feed.php. I submitted my podcast, but the title is wrong the author is blank, the subtitle is blank, the category is wrong. In other words if people search for what my podcast should be, they will never find it. PLEASE HELP.

    Thanks. Does not really tell me much. I guess everyone assumes that it is plug and play.

    1. itunes information is all wrong when I submit my feed. Name of podcast, category, subcategory, everything is empty or wrong
    2. itunes complains my feed is wrong but, of course, does not tell me what is wrong.

    These are both vague and roadblocks. So, that is where I am.

    I am now where you were a month ago, so maybe you can offer some help?
    I just ftp'd the podpress folder into wordpress plugins folder.

    the instructions say:
    1. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
    WHAT Plugins menu in WordPress? WHERE?

    2. To add a link to itunes on your website, set the FeedID in the PodPress options page, and then add this code in your template <?php podPress_iTunesLink(); ?>
    WHAT Podpress options page? WHERE?

    All the "instructions" I find are akin to the GarageBand manual: Step One for how to record a Podcast: First, record your podcast. VERY helpful. NOT!

    Are there ANY directions anywhere that just lay out a sequential procedure????
    thanks mucho,

    These are all functions accomplished from your WordPress dashboard. That's http://yourbloglocation/wp-admin, and you'll need the user name and password you created when you installed WP.

    From there, you'll see a Plugins tab, where you can go and activate Plugins that have been added. Once you've activated the podPress plugin, you'll see a podPress tab where you can access podPress settings.

    Getting the plugin installed is general WordPress stuff, so you probably won't find detailed instructions on activating podPress. Review the WP documentation here.
