So, I’ve been using FeedBurner for my non-blog feeds for quite a while, now. However, I’ve been hesitant to switch over to FeedBurner for my blog feed because I didn’t want to strand people who had been using the old feed link. (I believe I was just discussing the problem of stranding links, wasn’t I?) Well, lo and behold, there comes the following plugin for WordPress:
FeedBurner Plugin // Ordered List by Steve Smith
So What Does This Do? Using some WordPress plugin magic, and user agent detection, this plugin simply forwards all your feed traffic to FeedBurner. The plugin will detect all ways to access your feed (e.g. http://www.yoursite.com/feed/ or http://www.yoursite.com/wp-rss2.php, etc.), and redirect them to your FeedBurner feed so you can track every possible subscriber. It will forward for your main posts feed, and optionally your main comments feed as well.
Woo Hoo! If you’re like me, you said “Eu-freakin’-reca!!” and promptly read the download and installation instructions. The great thing about this is that you get all the advantages of using FeedBurner without the problem of stranded subscribers who don’t show up when you’re trying to get a feel for your subscribership on various feeds.
