Re: [podcasters] Re: Podcast Feed and Site Trends for 2007
- Another problem for iTunes-only subscription options is that you must
be on a Mac or PC to even use the itunes link. I'm on Linux which
iTunes doesn't support. So even if I wanted to subscribe I couldn't.
At least not without being a geek and being able to recognise the
software their site runs on. Ask A Ninja uses Drupal, so you can
subscribe to their front page using http://www.askaninja.com/rss.xml .
But I only know this because I've built a few sites on Drupal myself,
including my own podcast. I suspect they are trying to hide that feed
to force all traffic through iTunes.
