    The feed you’ve linked to here:
    https://www.theapex.racing/the-braking-point-podcast/feed/

    Is currently OK. Do you have the Newspaper theme active now?

    Looking at your screenshots, it appears the theme was stripping the category feed of all of the settings applied by PowerPress. There is an option in PowerPress >> Settings, Advanced Mode >> Feeds tab to keep outside plugins from modifying podcast feeds (it can also help with theme-based issues sometimes). If you’re still having trouble, enable this option and save the changes.

    Other than that, all you can do is get support from the theme developer. If the category-based podcast feed is working as expected under a default theme, the issue isn’t with PowerPress.

    Shawn,

    Thanks for your reply. Because the broken feed was messing up our iTunes listing and everything else, I turned off the theme’s custom category template and reverted back to one of the standard templates which we have been using with PowerPress for a long time.

    I checked the setting you mentioned and it is already turned on, yet the theme is still stripping the PowerPress settings from the category’s feed.

    If there’s nothing else to try on your end, I’ll hope that TagDiv can help. However, I’m concerned their answer will be for me to work it out with you.

    Thanks again.

    Hello Ben,

    Normal category feeds are built into WordPress. If a plugin or theme modifies them it is outside of PowerPress’s control. We do have two options in the Category Podcasting screen (at the bottom) to enable strict category podcasting as well as category podcast only feeds. These features do 2 things, they allow you to align each episdoe to 1 category and to also provide podcast only feeds for your podcast categories. Podcast only feeds, when tied to the option Shawn mentioned to not allow themes/plugins to modify podcast feeds should solve the issue you are having. Keep in mind though that a category podcast feed will have a slightly different address URL, e.g. example.com/category/feed/podcast/

    Thanks,
    Angelo
