Lost My Feed with Upgrade to WordPress 2.7

[Two posts were ignored by Feedburner once I got connected: WordPress Upgrade, New Theme and Other Stuff and Gadget Review: VuDu Box.  If you’re interested in either, you can use the links above.]

Yikes!  I just discovered that my feed on Feedburner disappeared after my “upgrade to WordPress 2.7.  Not only were no blog readers notified of new posts, but the feed itself was blank.  After unsuccessfully searching for a solution in the Google Feedburner Help Group and through various other forums, blogs and blogging therapy clinics, I gave up.  While several people had similar difficulties, none of their fixes worked for me.

To make a long story somewhat shorter, after hacking around a lot with WordPress, I discovered that the link to the blog’s “original” feed on my server was incorrect on the Feedburner side.  Specifically, the link was http://www.2-speed.com/wp-rss2.php when it should be http://www.2-speed.com/feed.  I made the change in “Edit feed details” on my Feedburner page.

I don’t know if this was a change resulting from the upgrade to WordPress 2.7 (although I expect it was) or because of the recent change Google has made to the Feedburner service.  In any event, I hope my pain and discovery can help someone else with the same problem.

  1. I can’t get Feedburner to work at all, I’m not sure it’s the same problem you had but I’d be happy to know if you got a resolution to it.

    Thanks,

    elle.

  3. Elle,

    I don’t know if I can help. I hacked at mine and scoured Google for a solution. In the end, the problem, I think, was a combination of WordPress, the theme I have adopted and Feedburner. Many people are having problem with the move of Feedburner to Google, though.

    You didn’t leave the URL of your blog in the comment, so I couldn’t look. I’d suggest you first see if you can access you blog’s feed directly. Then make sure that is the address that Google is looking at. If it is, go to the Feedburner troubleshooting page and and click on “Resynch Now.”

    Hope that helps.
