All information inside Ziepod is kept via different types of items, as listed with short descriptions below. By using these, you can manage retrieved content.
Podcasts, or more generally feeds, are the source of retrieve content from where Ziepod checks for new published episodes and posts periodically.
Virtual channels are artificial channels. They gather their content from existing subscribed channels via filters that you set.
Bulk channels allow you to treat multiple feeds as one feed. Instead of subscribing to feeds one by one, you can add the address of each feed into a bulk channel and combine them into one feed.
Word watchdog checks newly retrieved posts for watched word and notifies you. Unlike virtual channels, they keep caught posts till you exit Ziepod.
OPML files are like repositories which are used to keep list of feeds for archive purposes and to subscribe to those feeds later quickly at once.
Folders, also called bins, are mainly used to organize subscriptions into groups and to keep retrieved posts/episodes for archive purposes.
Special type of folders where Ziepod keeps special posts. Such as Trashbin holds deleted posts, while 'Downloaded Episodes' bin keeps pointers to downloaded episodes to reach them fast.
Each published item through a feed is called 'post' in general. If they are associated with an audio or video file, they are specifically called episodes.
Bear in mind that since Ziepod is orginally called a podcast receiver but can also be used as a news aggregator, used terminology may vary. Such as podcast and feed as well as episode and post are used interchangably through out the help documentation.
