Change the Number of Feed Items In WordPress to Display All Your Episodes on iTunes

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Email this to someone

If you are having an issue with iTunes, or any other podcatcher, only showing your most recent ten (10) or less episodes and you are using WordPress to feed your podcast, this is the fix for you.

Even if you are also using feedburner, changing this simple setting will allow more episodes to appear in your RSS feed and thus on iTunes, Zune, Miro, etc.

This fix works for both and people who have their own installation of WordPress on their own server.

    This was the final piece of the puzzle for me after I migrated over to from Posterous and needed to find out how to see all my podcasts on iTunes! Thanks so much for all your help. This video is probably one of the only things about how to adjust this that I found. I'm going to tweet it too!

    Hey you mentioned in this tutorial that your feed should only have the podcast .mp3s in it. My wordpress blog posts usually have a bunch of images with them and so these images also show up in my feedburner feed. How can I edit them out so the feed only shows .mp3 files?

    Thanks for your help 🙂

    Hmm ok thanks a lot for the response. If I choose summary, what will show up instead? Will it for sure still show the link to the .mp3? Usually the .mp3 link is in the top section of my posts.

    Where can I check the size of my feed? Do all posts on my wordpress blog show up on my feedburner feed? Like, if I post images in seperate posts from my .mp3s will I still hit this 512k size limit?

    If thats the case, it seems like a really frustrating restriction because its really important for me to be able to have a bunch of media on the blog to go along with the audio….

    For reference, the feed is:
    and the blog hosting it is:

    Thanks again for your help. I'm really glad I found this site its already helped me with several things.

  4. Have you experienced the problem where one person's iTunes shows all the episodes of a podcast, but someone else's iTunes doesn't?

    I have some friends that can't get iTunes to show all episodes of my podcast, Critical Wit. And yet, I can get it to work. We both updated our iTunes accounts. We both deleted and re-subscribed to the podcasts. My brother and a friend of mine can see the available episodes, but my wife and some friends can not.

    I'm assuming it's an iTunes problem, but not sure what the remedy is for it?

  5. WHOOOOOPSS…I feel like giving you a bottle of fine wine. You are just too much. I have researched over all the blogs and most of them kept saying trash until I watched your video. God bless you and this solve my issue. God bless you richly. I am subscribing to all your feeds and subscription right away. People like you are a blessing to the internet space. Love you….hehehehe
