[resolved] Redirecting feeds to Feedburner (3 posts)

    I created an account in Google's Feedburner service for my WordPress feeds.

    I tried to redirect users from my old feeds URL by redirecting them to new URLs with .htaccess. Although the redirection works well as such, it prevents Feedburner from updating my feeds (as it gets redirected too when it tries to access them).

    Is there any way how to redirect users of my old feeds to Feedburner but still let Feedburner to update them?

    For instance, is it possible to change the URL where WordPress RSS feed is located?

    There are two blogs which both are at virtual subdomains of my main site.

    My blogs (in Finnish):
    http://aiheet.domnik.net/
    http://lr.domnik.net/

    Default feeds (RSS2):
    http://aiheet.domnik.net/feed
    http://lr.domnik.net/feed/

    Feedburner feeds:
    http://feeds.feedburner.com/aiheita
    http://feeds.feedburner.com/lipsanenruso

    .htaccess:
    Redirect /feed/atom/ http://feeds.feedburner.com/lipsanenruso
    Redirect /feed/atom http://feeds.feedburner.com/aiheita
    Redirect /feed/ http://feeds.feedburner.com/lipsanenruso
    Redirect /feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/aiheita

    Is there any way to redirect http://aiheet.domnik.net/feed to Feedburner but leave http://aiheet.domnik.net/feed/atom where it is?

    That way, I could forward users of RSS2 feed (the vast majority) to Feedburner and keep Atom as a source of update.

    However, if I redirect /feed it also redirects /feed/atom. Is there any way to prevent that?
