    I had a feed set up with my blogger account:

    http://feeds2.feedburner.com/AThriftyMom

    when i added that to the WordPress/Settings/Feedburner tabs
    Set Up Your FeedBurner Feed: i added the same address to the field and my feed and email is not being sent

    I'm not sure what other info you need to help out, but i cant figure out why its not sending it out.
    If i click on the RSS button on my WordPress site I DO see the feed, but people that have subscribed have not been receiving their feeds
    Any help?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I'm a bit confused. When I subscribe to your RSS it seems to be working fine. I see your articles. Is it just the email subscription that's not working?

    Log into your web hosting control panel and then open your .htaccess file with your control panel's editor.

    Paste in this code and click save:

    # Redirect Content Feeds to Feedburner
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine on
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedBurner    [NC]
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedValidator [NC]
     RewriteRule ^feed/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?$ http://feeds2.feedburner.com/AThriftyMom [R=302,NC,L]
    </IfModule>

    Do a test and see if it works.

    No worries.

    It should be somewhere in your root html directory. It will say .htaccess.

    Can you find it there?

    Ahh it was hidden - anyways found it

    I placed it after # Begin WordPress and before # End worpress

    is that where i should put it?

    Put it after the # End wordpress

    In other words, go to the bottom of that file and paste it in at the bottom underneath everything else.

    Ok, the problem is most likely then with your Feedburner configuration.

    Log into Feedburner and click on your feed. Near the top you should see "Edit Feed Details..."

    Click that and where it says "Original Feed", type in your blog's original feed. It will probably be something like this:

    http://athriftymom.com/feed/atom/

    Save your Feed Details and let's see if that works. Good luck.

    Ok all changed (actually did that after i tried it like i stated above)

    But maybe it takes time for the post to send over.
    It must not be an immediate thing...right?
    When I was in blogger ( i know its a bad word - thats why i left ;)
    it only updated the RSS feed like 1 maybe 2 times a day

    Should i wait, or is there something else i should do?

    Thanks WpBlogHost!

    I think its fixed when i did what you said i found my site feed from my wordpress site -
    http://athriftymom.com/feed/
    then used that to change my "original feed" at feedburner edit feed section.
    Once i did that everything is up and going

    This is why i switched to WordPress - Google has no Customer support of any kind. you make a comment in their "help" forums for which ever service you have a question about and nothing ever gets commented on. Thats the running joke in their forums is that they start the post off by saying "this post will never get commented on, but....

    I LOVE WORDPRESS

    thanks for the help!
