I'm using iTunes to manage my library, but I don't want to use it for podcasts (because I don't launch iTunes often enough to update the podcasts with sufficient frequency). I've entered a bunch of podcasts in the plugins section on Slimserver, but the Podacsts menu item remains empty. When I had podcasts subscribed in iTunes (since deleted), they did show up in Slimserver. Ideas?

This is on XP, SS 6.2.1.

different kind of content, different UI.

You are recalling the iTunes podcast menu item. If you add podcasts
in the plugins section, those are only available via the Podcast
Browser in the plugins menu. There is no web interface for that
feature at this time.

If you go into player settings->menus, then you have the option of
making the Podcast Browser a top level menu item for easy access.
