Some of my settings magically changed last week. I updated bb whenever it said to, I think last week.

My show is still up in iTunes.
https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/write-on-purpose-follow-your/id657628147?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

My feed that I submitted to iTunes magically changed:
http://writeonpurpose.com/feed/podcast?wpmfeedkey=1;d925fe0a37a6269dcad347cfa496ec24
september - feed didn't work & this is the new
http://writeonpurpose.com/feed/podcast?wpmfeedkey=276;7ad94c6371f62cb082cfb5b79bcbdf42

Both feeds show all the way through Episode 20, which is accurate.

But nothing shows in iTunes. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Ronda

I just looked at your feed and  the problem is there are no episodes attached to the posts.  Something is stripping the media files out of your feed. 

Try reading this: http://create.blubrry.com/resources/powerpress/using-powerpress/diagnosing-feed-andor-player-issues-with-powerpress/

Also, the extra stuff at the end of your feed address is put there by wishlist member plugin.   Your feed seems to work (other then missing the media files) at http://writeonpurpose.com/feed/podcast/  Search the forum here for "Wishlist Member" for some ideas on how to make that work with powerpress.

Thanks Mike. I don't understand why everything was FINE until the update of BB. I was in New & Noteworthy & everything showed up perfectly til then. I have nothing protected in WL that's in the feed. So strange.

I'll check out those resources.

The membership code may have changed in WishList, once the code changes the feed is no longer valid unless you have the newest wishlist code.

Same thing happened to me. I updated the Powerpress plugin recently (can't remember what day it was but it was recent). Then for past 5 days or so I kept trying to figure out why all of the podcatchers I tried weren't showing any of my episodes. Then sure enough I opened up a post today and all my mp3's were gone. I had to go in to 56 different posts and input my MP3 URL's again. That was fun.

Do you also have a membership plugin?


Updating PowerPress does not modify the database, so this is odd to say the least.

Angelo,

I don't believe it's a membership plugin. I also at the time updated 6 or 7 other plugins PLUS upgraded to another Wordpress version. It's entirely possible it had nothing to do with Powerpress. I have updated my other Wordpress sites and Powerpress plugins with no issues. Not sure why this particular site had one.
