(Just Text) RSS for iTunes?

I am trying to provide an iTunes compatible RSS feed for this material. If anyone either uses iTunes or knows a way to check such feeds could you try this one and let me know…

    I’m using Amarok, not iTunes, and I’ve just tested a couple of the episodes with that. They played fine, but they appeared in a strange order. This is probably because the “pubDate” is the same for all of them (but I don’t really know what I’m talking about). In turn, this is probably because you added all the episodes at the same time.

    Yes, it is manually created and the tool I used added the time automatically, so in future they should appear one by one on the “right” date.

    The Jonah 1:1 link is broken.

  4. Tim says:

    donavp, do you mean in the feed, or on the site? The link on the site seems to me to be working… I’ll try to see if there is anything funny about Jonah 1:1 in the feed code…

    Don, got it, in the feed there was a capital J for Jonah in the MP3 filename, should be fixed now!

    Thanks. Yes, the most recent one came in fine, and Amarok knew where to put it, since it was on a different date.

    I don’t know about iTunes, and I’m not sure about the general convention, but I get the impression that Amarok copes better if newer episodes are added to the top of the file, rather than the bottom. Perhaps someone else has a comment about what iTunes likes.

  7. I’m using iTunes and the rss feed is working fine except that two episodes have broken links. These were (1) What DOES fulfill mean? and (2) Biblical Narrative: Fraught with Background: Genesis 24.
