Not "tinkering with this site", but had been over at Richsoil on this page (if it links you to the podcast archives page).

I thought I could hit SEARCH button there and enter a search word. That wasn't an option, as no text box appeared. Thought I could hit HOME button and it would take me back to Richsoil's home page. It didn't take me anywhere. So I came here. Hope that's ok.

Karen, I hope you don't mind, I edited your subject line and am adding to it here because I think your issue and more that I discovered might be related.

The website you linked to above is a Wordpress site where (I think) Paul's podcasts are hosted. About a year ago, there were some errors with that page (as ever so briefly identified and discussed and then fixed in this Podcast error thread).

I've noticed that there seem to be multiple podcast "channels" that show up for Paul, and they no longer show the icon/picture, or otherwise error out in my podcast feed. So I'm thinking wherever / however the podcast are listed might need some updating.

I use the free Podkicker app on my phone and my tablet and I took some screenshots from my phone to show what I mean.

If these two topics aren't related, let me know and I'll split out the topics.

For additional reference, we have:

Jocelyn, thank you for bringing this back up. I can't remember what I had been searching for initially, but there still seems to be an issue with that page.

From Richsoil's Home page, if you scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "More Podcasts>>" at the bottom of the podcast box. That will take you to the page I had linked to above. On that page, if you click on Home, Podcasts, Archives or Search, nothing happens.

Ah, good to know how you found the link to the podcasts at https://richsoil.com/permaculture/#. That is a Wordpress site with this header picture:


that must have some errors in the page.

Hope we can get help to fix it on multiple levels.

I fixed the search issue (I think) and the home button now goes to the richsoil main page.

As for the channels, there are three of them that were created a long time ago. The main podcast channel is "Permaculture Podcast by Paul Wheaton". Then there is "Homesteading Podcast by Paul Wheaton" which only has 66 items and the video channel which hasn't been updated since probably 2011 (Homesteading Videos by Paul Wheaton). I don't have much time to investigate the two extra channels right now and don't want to create unintended consequences if I delete them.

Does the main channel work? It seems to work on iOS.

Yes, thank you!

The "Permaculture Podcast by Paul Wheaton" does work in my Podkicker app (on Android) and has the most podcasts in its list:  #84 to 376.
The "Homesteading and Permaculture by Paul Wheaton" also works, and I think it is/was the original channel, but only has the most recent podcasts, #337 through 376.
