Title: Publishing from Blubrry - need to increase number of episodes in itunes
Post by: Letsthinkonit on March 13, 2017, 01:49:06 pm
I am currently publishing the feed from blubrry.  (I use powerpress in my WP site but I am NOT publishing from powerpress.)  Where can I find --in blubrry--- the settings for the number of episodes that I want to include in the feed.  Currently itunes is only showing 50.  https://www.blubrry.com/letsthinkonit/
Thanks in advance!!!

Log into your Blubrry Podcaster Dashboard and click the Tools and Settings link inside the Episodes box. Click the Program Settings link and on the next page, there's a dropdown menu called Max Episodes Per Feed. Select the number you'd like and click the Save button at the bottom of the page.

I have the same issue. I need to increase the number of Episodes shown on iOS Podcast app. But when I navigate to the Program Listing Settings, I only get the following options
Blubrry Listing Homepage
Feed URL
http://yourtimepodcast.com/index.php/feed/podcast/
e.g. http://example.com/feed/podcast/ (must be a valid RSS podcast feed)

iTunes Listing URL
e.g. http://itunes.apple.com/podcast/title-of-podcast/id000000000 (optional)

Category
Parental Rating

Juspreet - you're using a different system to publish your podcast feed. Try this:
1.) Log in to your WordPress site. Hover over the Settings menu on the left-hand side and select Reading.
2.) Change the number in the "Syndication feeds show the most recent" box to a higher number like 50 or 100. Click the Save Changes button.
3.) Hover your mouse over the PowerPress link in the left-hand sidebar and select Settings. On the next screen, switch to Advanced Mode if you're not already there
4.) Click the Feeds tab. In the "Show the most recent" box, enter the same number you entered in step two. Click the Save Changes button.

It may take up to 24 hours before you see the changes represented in your Apple Podcasts listing.

Thank you @Shawn Thorpe!

i made those changes. Should i have enabled Feed Episode Maximizer as well? I changed both settings that you described to 50.

There's no reason to use Feed Episode Maximizer unless you're having feed performance issues.
