WordPress feed points to wrong Feedburner (5 posts)

    I'm having a problem with Feedburner and my WordPress feed. I've changed the Feedburner link to reflect the new name of my blog, and it works fine. This is the new Feedburner link:

    http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheBrewdyBawler

    However, if I type in the direct WP feed URL like this:

    http://www.chrisandlydia.net/bawltics/feed

    Feedburner points to the old Feedburner URL which is this:

    http://feeds.feedburner.com/Bawltics

    Everything is normal in Feedburner. Both the new Feedburner URL and the WP feed URL validate as valid XML and show my posts. I have deleted the plugin in WP that was pointing to the Feedburner account (I was using Feedburner FeedSmith).

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Not familiar with that plugin....does it write to your .htaccess file?

    Thanks for replying. I don't see that there is a .htaccess file for my WP directory.

    Really? Are you using custom permalinks at all? If so, you have one (if you are on linux server)

    They are sometimes hidden files....

    I actually don't get forwarded to any feedburner, I see your http://www.chrisandlydia.net/bawltics/feed feed when I visit the link

    I'm not using any custom permalinks. I guess it was maybe some kind of DNS refresh issue. It works for me, as well. I wanted to document this, in case someone else comes across a similar issue.

    Thanks for your help, Voodoo.
