Doubling up of posts since i installed Blubrry
« on: September 11, 2017, 06:35:25 am »
Hi, can anyone help,

Since I added blubrry to my website, my podcast posts were duplicated and showed up on my website as a double post. I presumed it was mistake and deleted two to test it. Now those two podcasts are not connecting to itunes. I'm afraid to delete the rest in case it removes them from itunes but my website is messy now. Any know what i can do to change this/ rectify?
website is: www.thefilmmakerspodcast.com

Many thanks
Giles

I'm guessing that you had posts on your site already that contained AKA direct links to media files (links that ended in .mp3 for example) and the built-in podcasting function of WordPress wrapped those links in enclosure tags. Then, you installed PowerPress and PowerPress interpreted those enclosure tags as individual podcast episodes. There's no really no fix for this beyond removing the duplicates from your site.

Thanks for your reply.

The only problem with removing them from the site is they are then removed from itunes which I certainly don't want.
Any advice on that?

Can you not remove one each of the duplicates?
