Verifying WordPress feed settings for podcasting (self-hosted WordPress)

Are you using WordPress for podcasting? If so, it's important to know that newer versions of WordPress will automatically convert linked MP3 files to RSS enclosures, but using our SmartCast™ service will guarantee maximum compatibility and reliability for your podcast. Either way, you will need to make sure you're publishing a "full text" feed so your links make it into the RSS feed. Here's how to verify your original WordPress site feed's format:

  1. In a new browser window, sign in to your WordPress account.

  2. Once logged in, click the Options tab in the upper right part of the screen.

  3. Click the Reading sub-tab.

    You should see the Reading Options settings page for your site.

  4. On the Publicity and Feeds settings page, locate the "Syndication Feeds" section and make sure the "Full text" option is selected.

  5. Click Update Options.

    You should see the message "Options saved."
