PODCAST BROKEN – part 2
October 28, 2016 at 11:57 #38213
our podcast is broken again
http://www.harbourfellowship.com/podcast-feed – does not appear to be working
Also having problems getting approved it Itunes – would you have any suggestions?October 28, 2016 at 12:06 #38216
I ran a validator on your feed and it didn’t turn up anything (http://www.feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.harbourfellowship.com%2Fpodcast-feed). Is Apple sending you any error messages?October 28, 2016 at 12:32 #38220
Apple deleted us and now we cannot get re-approved
would the problem relate to something in this thread when we updated the code?October 28, 2016 at 15:29 #38221
If you made those code changes before submitting to Apple, I would tend to think that isn’t the cause since they would have rejected at that point.
Looking through the podcast episodes, I did notice a few of them don’t have an author specified. I made a copy of the code in the feed and added an author and then uploaded it to my server. I then submitted that URL to iTunes via the File > Subscribe to Podcast option and it pulled the podcast up.
It might be that making sure that every episode has a speaker will do the trick. Here are a few that don’t have one currently:

Good Morning Samuel,
I did a test submission of your feed in iTunes by going to File > Subscribe to Podcast and entering the URL to your feed there. When I tried that yesterday, I received an invalid feed error, but this morning it pulls up your feed just fine. I ran it through Apple’s recommended validator and it passed there as well.
You might try altering the URL slug of your feed a bit and resubmit with the new URL. You can do that by editing your page and changing the slug just below the page title. Perhaps they have the feed cached and they are pulling in old information. A slightly different URL would be a way around that.
If Apple is still rejecting your feed today, then I believe you’ll need to contact them and get a reason why. Those are the two tests that Apple gives us to use prior to submission. Since it passes both we’ll need some indication from them as to why it is being rejected.
Let me know what you turn up,

Your podcast has been approved. You should expect to see it on the iTunes Store within the next few hours. When it’s available, you will be able to access it with the URL below.November 2, 2016 at 12:07 #38276
Fantastic news. Let me know if you have any other questions.
