Returns your Feedburner Circulation Count. Reduces the Feedburner API calls by updating hourly and serving a database cached result in between.
Returns a database stored Feedburner Circulation Count in plain text or number format. Reduces the Feedburner API calls by only updating the circulation count hourly and serving a database cached result in between. The account you're attempting to get a "Circulation Count" from must have the awareness API turned on.
You can use the function
<?php circulation_count( $ids, $default, $echo, $format ); ?> in your theme files. The following is an explanation of the parameters the function excepts.
For example, if I was Psdtuts+ and wanted to echo out a circulation count that had a fallback or default circulation count in the unlikely event nothing is stored in the database or there is a weird zero result returned, I would do the follow.
<?php circulation_count( 'psdtuts', 15000 ); ?>
If I wanted to save the count to a variable as a plain integer that I could add to another count or something similar I would do this.
<?php $circulation_count = circulation_count( 'psdtuts', 15000, false, false ); ?>
If I wanted to echo a formatted count form an array of $ids with a fallback, I would do this.
<?php circulation_count( array('psdtuts', 'nettuts'), 200000 ); ?>
