FeedBurner Plugin v2.1 for WordPress released

Congrats to Steve Smith, who just released a fantastic update to his popular plugin for WordPress. The plugin has always been a great tool for redirecting subscribers from WordPress to your FeedBurner feed, but it involved a little .htaccess magic that was periodically troublesome for users. (It also didn’t work on all versions of WordPress, or all platforms.)

Now Steve’s got an elegant answer: install the new plugin, activate it, and tell it where your FeedBurner feed lives. And you’re done. If you’re using WordPress and FeedBurner and you’re not using this plugin, you’re missing out on some valuable info. Nice work, Steve!


  1. [...] Thanks to Matt Mower for pointing out that my feed was, well, funky. I think it was related to my upgrade the other day (though, it should be noted: not really a byproduct of the upgrade itself, but of some legacy URL handling by WordPress) that I should have caught. [...]

  2. [...] Based on Rick’s recommendation, I’ve installed the FeedBurner plugin for WordPress to get it working. This was a lot easier than messing with .htaccess files and the like. [...]
