A Feedburner Question for All You Experts

By JLP | December 30, 2005

Ever since I started using WordPress Feedburner will not poll my Bloglines subscribers. So, my subscriber number in my little Feedburner chicklet doesn’t reflect my 233 Bloglines subscribers. I emailed Feedburner and the guy told me to do a re-direct. He sent me a link to this discussion in the Feedburner Forums. I read a few of the posts and figured out that I don’t know what the heck I’m doing. Is there anyone who can explain how to do this in plain English (preferably on a Kindergarten level)? Would I have to do anything different since I’m using WordPress?

    We’ve had similar setups (switching from Blogger to WordPress). I’ll be glad to help.

    As some history, I had severe problems with Feedburner after I switched to wordpress. I fought and fought and fought for almost 3 days with mediocre progress.

    What finally solved my problem, took only 5 minutes. I don’t know if you’re using it yet, but my lifesaver was the Feedburner WordPress plugin.

    If you’re using it, and the pre-Wordpress Bloglines subscriptions aren’t reporting, then that’s another issue, and you should use a redirect where your old feed was and now point it to your new Feedburned location. This part took me a little playing with, but it went pretty quick. I was able to get mine to work, so I’d think we could get yours to work too. This is the part that’ll probably require a little more involved help.

    If you haven’t installed the WordPress Feedburner plug in, do it. It’ll only take a few minutes and it helps a bundle, and may solve the issue. If you still have trouble afterwards, let me know and I’ll do my best to help some more.

    Feedburner is really very useful for syndicating feeds from other websites.,,-
