    Hi guys!

    I make a daily audio podcast in spanish which I publish on my wp.com blog and I submitted it to iTunes via a Category Feed (as in yourblog.com/category/<category_name/feed/ ) and it all works like a charm EXCEPT for one thing: The Title of the feed appears as “[NameOfTheBlog] >> [NameOfTheCategory]” and that’s obviously hard for people to find on iTunes.

    ¿Is there a way I can change the name/Title of that feed to “CustomNameSuchAndSuch”? Keep in mind it is a wp.COM blog so I can’t edit php’s or add widgets.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    The blog I need help with is chrisfaw.com.

    Is your blog indeed hosted by WordPress.com? We would appreciate having the exact address of your blog next time.

    You can’t, and it’s precisely because at WP.com, there is no way for you to edit the PHP code.

    You can modify the name of the blog and the name of the category, but you cannot hide them.

    Hi, airodyssey

    Yes, my blog is hosted in wp.com and I got the domain upgrade. My blog is http://chrisfaw.com (also in chrisfaw.wordpress.com) and I only submitted to iTunes the feed for my podcast, which is a category feed (http://chrisfaw.com/category/podcast/feed/). The problem is that on iTunes the title/name of my podcast appears as “[myblogname] >> [category]” (so it looks like this: “el Blog de @chrisfaw >> Podcast”) and I’d like it to be “Tecnología con Chris Fawcett” instead, as the first one isn’t really search-friendly.

    I’ve been reading and I get the Idea that it is not possible (although I hope I’m wrong!). Is there any upgrade that i can buy (like the “Pro” one they’re announcing on the top bar lately) that would enable me to do this?

    Thanks!

    It is not possible and there is no upgrade you can purchase here at WordPress.com to make it possible.
