Title: Max # Episodes iTunes will List
Post by: rickarcher on August 13, 2015, 03:29:44 pm
My iTunes podcas page - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/buddha-at-the-gas-pump/id602578156?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 - lists 200 episodes. I thought iTunes would list a max of 300 (I have 301 now). Did they lower the number to 200? Any suggestions on how to make all past episodes available to new subscribers?

Log into your WordPress site, go to PowerPress >> Settings, advanced mode >> Feeds >> Show the most recent.

See what number is entered there in the box. Change it to the number you want and the save the changes. Give iTunes a day or so to catch up and see if that brings in the rest of your episodes.

I have it set to 350. Was at 300. I upped to to 350 a week ago. Only shows 200 though. I also tried turning on  Feed Episode Maximizer.

Your RSS feed is currently going back to episode 101. It's not showing any episodes previous to that. One other thing you can try is to log into WordPress and go to WordPress Settings >> Reading >> Syndication feeds show the most recent, and make sure it matches whatever you've entered into PowerPress.

Thanks. I tried that and it looks like it's showing them all now. https://batgap.com/feed/podcast/

I'll see if they all show up in iTunes.

That did it. Now they're all listed. I've heard that iTunes will only list a maximum of 300. Although my latest is #303, I actually only have #293 because some were removed. If 300 is the limit, can you suggest a strategy, involving PowerPress, for getting the older ones listed when I pass that threshold, so that new listeners can start from the beginning if they want to?  Thanks.

301 episodes is the absolute limit of what iTunes will display. Blubrry doesn't have a lot of direct input with Apple on this kinda stuff, but if there's an opportunity, your feedback will get passed on.

Hopefully when I reach that number, it'll stop displaying the oldest ones, not the newest ones.

If you haven't done anything to alter the iTunes display order, then it will stop displaying the oldest ones first.
