    iTunes is now using the feed at

     

    http://www.ReluctantRadio.org/Podcast/ReluctantRadio/oaks.rss

     

    and the latest episode in the feed, that of 11 November, is showing both when subscribing and in the Store.

    I don't know what went wrong this time. That's never happened before. Obviously there's something I don't understand about where the iTunes application reads the .rss feed from. I doesn't appear to be reading it directly from my server like the browsers do. Perhaps Apple copies the feed to their own server and iTunes reads it from there or something? That's the only explanation I can think of.

    Ths Store caches the feed but subscribers read it directly from your server: when clicking the subscribe button they are directed to the feed URL the Store is using. Let's try and unravel this.

     

    You originally had the Store using a feed at

     

    http://www.ReluctantRadio.com/oaks.rss

     

    which was not working. It now is, and it contains the 'new-feed-url' tag redirecting to

     

    http://www.ReluctantRadio.org/Podcast/ReluctantRadio/oaks.rss

     

    That is the feed that now turns up when you click the Subscribe button, which is what you would expect. The Store itself may not yet have turned over to this feed but probably has. If not it will do so on the next check.

     

    The latest episode is included in both feeds: it is that of 11 November and this shows when subscribing and also in the Store. So as far as I can see everything is working correctly and I am not sure what it is that is worrying you.
