Podpress missing podcast episodes

  • My first five podcast episodes are not showing up on iTunes. I currently have 37 podcast episodes. Is there somewhere in my settings that I need to adjust to have the first 5 episodes come back up?

    I’m using podpress 8.8.10.12

    Also, worth noting I recently transferred my website to another host. I’m not sure if the missing podcasts happened before or after the transfer.

    Thanks in advance!

  • I guess that you have registered your default RSS feed at the iTunes Store. Right?
    The oldest post in this feed is the post of episode 6.
    In general the RSS Feed of WP Blogs contains only a certain amount of posts and my guess is that your blog has more posts then this the settings allows in the feed. But you can increase this value:
    Site Admin > Settings > Reading > Syndication feeds show the most recent … posts

    A different more complicated possibility is to activate one of podPress Feeds. These Feeds may include only posts with podcast episodes while your main RSS feed contains also other posts. If you don’t want to increase the value which limits the number of posts in the feed then you can go this. (But you would need to change the feed URL at the iTS and further things.)

    Where do I go to follow this path? Where is site admin?
    Site Admin > Settings > Reading > Syndication feeds

    And so that I can hit you up with two questions in one post:
    Where do I go to activate the podPress feeds?

    I’m working with WordPress 3.2.1.

    Thanks!

    With Site Admin I mean the admin panel or admin screen where you get when you login to your blog and where you can usually write your posts.
    The option is on this admin screen http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Reading_Screen

    Beside those default WP admin screens there also podPress screens. One of them is the Feed/iTunes Settings screen (or page). Ont this page you can find a section called “podPress Feeds” and this section includes several options to activate and customize additional feeds for your blog.
    But maybe try the option on the Reading screen first.

    OK. So my Syndication feed is set at 100. How high can I increase it? If it is at 100 and I only have 37 podcast why am I having this problem. I have 108 posts (including the 37 podcasts)

    Also, if I increase my syndication number to 500, will it automatically post my 1st 6 podcast episodes again?

    If it is at 100 and I only have 37 podcast why am I having this problem.

    Because the feed which you have probably registered at the iTunes Store does not contain only posts with a podcast episode and you have more than 100 posts (108). If this number of posts in a feed value is set to 100 then the feed does not contain all posts.

    Also, if I increase my syndication number to 500, will it automatically post my 1st 6 podcast episodes again?

    Yes.

    OK Great. 2 more questions:

    What is the highest number I can set my Syndication feed to be?

    How long will it take for these missing podcast episodes to show up again? As of now, they are not there.

    What is the highest number I can set my Syndication feed to be?

    I don’t know that with certainty. But it is possible to save a number with at least 10 digits.

    How long will it take for these missing podcast episodes to show up again?

    The iTunes Store server updates its cache memory once every 24h.

    And it’s done. All podcast episodes are up. Thanks for your help!
