Two caveats by

Hi, I’m a first time user of podlove publisher. I created a mp3 and an iTunes-feed. I mean I have named them that way. Now I stuffed the created feed into and got two recommendations:

line 1, column 38: Use of unknown namespace:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><rss version="2.0">


Image title doesn't match channel title
  <title>My Podcast (mp3)</title>
  <image><url></url><title>My Podcast</title><link></link></image>

I assume the additional " (mp3)" makes the difference and causes the complaint.

What about these warnings? Ignorable? Should be fixed? What do you mean?


The (mp3) addition to the feed title can be removed by unchecking Podcast Feeds | Edit Feed: MP3 | Append Feed Name to Podcast title. It is IMHO more useful for secondary, non-iTunes feeds.

These warnings are just annoyances by Feed Validator which they won’t remove. You can safely ignore it (although Katrins advice is valid).

Thank you Katrin. Removed the tickle and the warning was gone.

Yeah, thanks Tim. I suspected such a mess, however just wanted to be confirmed.

Forgive me for reopening this ticket, but I looked at my setting for “Append Feed Name to Podcast title” and it’s already unchecked. Yet, I’m still getting the “Use of unknown namespace:” error.

Lines 1-3 in the feed are as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><rss version="2.0"
xmlns:itunes="" xmlns:psc="" xmlns:content="" xmlns:fh="" >

Any other suggestions?

Never mind. I found the problem. It was an errant function that shouldn’t have been included.
