iTunes not accepting new Podcast - resubmission error
« on: January 01, 2013, 01:36:27 pm »
I submitted my podcast a month ago. I'm using WordPress, and the episodes were accidentally moved to draft, not published mode, while iTunes was checking on the content before approval. As a result, they declined it and notified me.  I've since resolved the issue, clicked through their link to resubmit (which ends up the same submit podcast page in iTunes), and have submitted it again countless times without any response.  I've since had success submitting the exact same link to Zune/Xbox podcasts, Blackberry, and Stitcher yet iTunes isn't responding at all to my request.  Any help?

Unfortunately, you need to submit a new (slightly different) URL to iTunes. Once they moderate a specific URL, it is flagged either approved or denied. Worse yet, if they previously approved then denied the feed, you may also need to slightly change the program title. You will be warned about that during the step 2 preview page when you submit the feed in iTunes.

Is there a reason your using a category feed? If you do not plan on other podcast feeds, category feed is not necessary, you could use the podcast only feed: http://whocenterpa.com/feed/podcast/

If you just created the category feed thinking that's what you needed to do, then try submitting the podcast only feed to iTunes: http://whocenterpa.com/feed/podcast/

Thanks, I resubmitted with a variation on the link.  I did submit intentionally as a category because we have other podcast content beyond the sermons in the works. I want to keep the different content categories n different podcasts technically. Next dilemma -getting iTunes to see my coverart. Not sure what is wrong with that step. I got the message that the podcast is accepted. I can see the coverart in Xbox/Zune, BlackBerry, and Stitcher but not iTunes.

Edit the category podcasting settings for the category, click the itunes tab, then for the field "itunes image" upload your latest image. It will update on itunes in 24-72 hrs.
