How to get my Feedburner-generated feeds into my WordPress page (12 posts)

    Hi, all. I am trying to create email links to the tables of contents of medical journals on my site http://www.medgrab.com.

    I just need to get over Mount Everest in the shape of replicating what David has done on his test page

    http://www.davidrothman.net/forhope.html

    on Word Press and from thence to the Medgrab pages. David clearly possess the know-how of setting up email alerts via FeedBurner but needs the mini guide to the ferrying of FeedBurner feeds into WordPress. I have tried reading around in the WordPress site, but the references to downloading the code are way over my head. I see the file to download, but can’t figure out where to insert all that.

    I would very much appreciate any help on this topic. I can be reached at lemanh@proaxis.com. I think my site could be a huge help to medical people. Is there a kindly soul who could assist me?

    Hope Leman

    Feedburner has two tools, with those you can display your feed anywhere on your blog or anyother website.

    1. Headline Animator:- This tool show max. 5 topic headlines. One at a time.
    2. BuzzBoost: This tool is quite flexible, you customize it show any number of post, in text or HTML format, headline and many more..

    You can see both running on my site.

    If you have any problem, you can contact me.

    Thank you so much, ROK! That is all most helpful. When I get home from work I will read in depth all that you say and will pass it along to the smart young geek who is going to help this weekend. The more info the better.

    You are very kind and your site impressive!

    Hope

    hopeyj - Thanks for all your words. But I have lost everything, i.e. all my hard work, which involved "12 hrs daily working", just to keep my site uptodate has gone down the drain. As I had a free hosting alongwith sub-domain, and the people there have deleted my account for no reason.

    Least to say I have lost all my work and customization.

    I had opted Free hosting as I am going through some personal problems, so I can not affoard paid hosting and a domain.

    But I still pays my "Best wishes" to the Hosting Service for giving me an oppurtunity to work.

    Aha--that explains why when I tried to email you, I found I suddenly couldn't find your site. Total bummeroo for both of us!

    Those were really neat tools you recommended to me. I will have my nice geek look into them when he comes tomorrow.

    In the meantime, another question. How can I import RSS feeds into WordPress? All I see in “Import posts from an RSS feed” is a box to import a file. What am I supposed to insert in it in order to get my RSS feed from FeedBurner into WordPress?

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Hope

    By the way, I am sorry you are having a hard time in various ways. Very thoughtless of me not to have said so above!

    ROK: You are very sweet. At the moment, I am trying to figure out why when I click on this at my own site:

    medgrab.com is proudly powered by WordPress
    Entries (RSS) and Comments (RSS)

    Firefox tells me that it is not a registed protocol. Any suggestions, HandySolo?

    Hope

    hopeyj- I have checked your site and the above mentioned links in footer, those are all working properly. I have checked in Firefox, Flock and Opera.

    And my site is back, they have re-created my account. I have uploade all files. Except a loss of about 100 Posts and some customization at this moment.

    The website is working and I will be switching on my blog after few hrs, as I have finished re-collecting plugins, what all I could remember and now uploading of plugin is left.

    Hi, ROK. You are certainly a stalwart helper! Thanks for letting me know that you, at least, can get my site in RSS. I have just checked it in Firefox and Internet Explorer. In the former I still get an error message about the protocol not being recognized or something and I get the usual "can't find" message in IE.

    Any suggestions, moderator?

    What a nightmare you must have been going through ROK. Sorry about all the headaches. Ugh!!

    Hope
