When I hover over the RSS Posts icon on my website, it says ozbots.org/feed/. How do I change it to my feedburner link which is http://feeds.feedburner.com/ozbotsdotorg-blog ?

I running WordPress 3.2.1 and Atahualpa 3.6.7

I installed FeedSmith and then edited the php to point to feedburner, but it made no difference.

I know there must be a simple way to do this, but I've worked on this all morning and can't figure it out.

Thanks!
Osman

What PHP did you edit? I have never edited any PHP for Feedburner to work.

Interesting. I went to the main WordPress menu, and I chose Plugins -> FeedBurner FeedSmith -> Edit. WordPress displayed an edit window with the following php code:

Quote:
<?php
/*
Plugin Name: FeedBurner FeedSmith
Plugin URI: http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/help/...ess_quickstart
Description: Originally authored by <a href="http://www.orderedlist.com/">Steve Smith</a>, this plugin detects all ways to access your original WordPress feeds and redirects them to your FeedBurner feed so you can track every possible subscriber.
Author: FeedBurner
Author URI: http://www.feedburner.com
Version: 2.3.1
*/

$data = array(
'feedburner_url' => '',
'feedburner_comments_url' => ''
);

...
I thought I had to enter my feedburner URLs in the single quotes. Is there a better way to tell WordPress my feedburner URLs for posts and comments?

Thanks,
Osman

Did you check to see if the plugin added a widget for you to use?

To setup the Feedburner plugin you go to Settings>Feedburner. You should also take out any edits you did to the plugin in the php code.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I've got it working now. Changing the php back to the original code was a critical part of the fix. The problem was complicated by poor support for RSS in Chrome. I thought my RSS subscribe button wasn't working, but then I noticed the same problem on http://wordpress.bytesforall.com. In Chrome when I click the RSS subscribe button on http://wordpress.bytesforall.com, I get the following text:

This doesn't happen on other browsers, so it must be a Chrome issue.

Thanks for your help.

That's interesting about Chrome. This Chrome extension seems to help.

Thanks, Larry. I had been having that weird XML screen come up on my RSS feed in Chrome and also for some clients for whom I set up their websites. Nice simple fix, except that some users may not realize that it is a browser issue and blame the website owner. Not sure what could be done about that.
