Hi Frank (@UltimateJim),
I don’t know a lot about the built-in blog plugin; I use stacks for about everything.
@dan or @tpbradley might help you out more with this, but since the problem seems to be with linking to files on your Mac, the project file might be of much help.
Since It sounds like you have quite an extensive collection of podcasts (160 files 5+GB), I would probably start managing these outside of RW.
Since it sounds like you will need to re-link all these anyway, I would put them on the server manually and then link to them directly to the files within the Podcast settings.
There are several ways to handle that. The easiest would be to use a standalone FTP app like Transmit (Paid), or FileZilla (free version).
Set up a directory on your server and call it whatever you want (Lowercase letters, numbers and
-). For this example, I will use a directory called
/podcast/. I’d put the directory right of your home directory just to keep it simple.
Then use the FTP app to upload your 160+ podcast files to that directory.
Once you have the files uploaded, then comes the tedious part. Go through the blog and on each podcast select the Custom RSS Tags, click the override button and place an URL to the podcast file you just uploaded.
So in this example the podcast file name
file_example_MP3.mp3 and it lives in a directory of
podcast so with a website address of
example.com the URL would be
