    Hi,
    I don't know if this is allowed here, but I'm seeking someone familiar with these three things to do a very small job for me. I've tried doing it myself and broke my RSS feeds on my WP installation, so I'm outsourcing.

    I'm using my RSS for multiple podcasts exclusively so I can add them to iTunes and other podcast aggregators. This involves including the thumbnail and URL of the mp3 (which I've associated with the post using Advanced Custom Fields, unformatted text field) in the format iTunes and other services will "understand." Not only did I wreck the code, but I realise I have no idea what format these services expect an RSS feed to be in.
    The structure of the podcasts is two post types, one of them "Premium" which I don't desire in the feed. Each show/podcast is a taxonomy/category. So I'm guessing the best method is using the taxonomy's RSS feed and excluding posts from the "premium" post type.

    Thanks folks

    I've been hearing their commercials on the radio. Have you considered looking for a freelancer on a website like www.upwork.com?

    Hi
    Yes, I have, for about 5 seconds. Then I remembered freelancing on such sites myself a few years ago. The mixed bag approach doesn't appeal to me and I don't want to be railroaded by an escrow situation, nor do I want to cause frustration for someone if I choose to walk away from the deal. I'd rather find someone who's recognised in the community, which I'm working toward finding now.

    Thanks
