RSS Redirect & Feedburner Alternative

Description

This plugin allows you to easily switch from Feedburner to the FREE (on the basic plan) and better Feedburner alternative SpecificFeeds.com.

Read more why SpecificFeeds is the better Feedburner alternative.

The plugin is very easy to use:

  • Step 1: Download, install & activate it
  • Step 2: Click on “Apply redirect” for all feeds you want to redirect (most likely your main feed, as well as some comments & author feeds you may have)
  • Step 3: Connect it to a SpecificFeeds.com account to get access to your subscribers, see statistics etc. (see screenshots)

Once the redirect is active, your RSS-url will redirect to your new feed page where users can subscribe to your feed.

If you had former Feedburner subscribers, follow the steps as prompted in the plugin to move them over to your new feed (RSS as well as Email subscribers).

If something is not working in the Feedburner alternative plugin, please post a question in the support forum. Thank you!

Screenshots

  • After installing the plugin, you'll see this button (on the plugin's settings screen) - click on it to apply the redirect

  • Your new feed page where users can subscribe

  • Your subscribers have plenty of options how they want to subscribe. For example, they can filter your feed to only get stories with certain tags, keywords, or authors (screenshot shows the tag-filter).

  • Subscribers can also select if they prefer to receive only headlines, or the entire content (provided you selected your RSS feed contains this information, otherwise it's just snippets).

  • Subscribers can also choose via which channels messages should be delivered to them

  • Statitics about your subscribers

  • Statistics showing how many messages have been sent via "Newspapers" or "Single emails"

  • User demographics statistics about your subscribers

Installation

Extract the zip file and drop the contents into the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation. Then activate the plugin from the plugins page.

Then go to plugin settings page and click on “Apply redirect” for all feeds you want to redirect.

Reviews

Annoying admin menu

I hate that this plugin adds a main menu item for a single page https://i.imgur.com/QLdxn62.png. There is no reason for it other than misguided self-importance

Excelente

Sem dúvidas um dos melhores plugins para feeds. Além de deixar tudo com uma cara nova, ele faz tudo o serviço para você. Estatísticas no painel, tudo funciona muito bem. Parabéns aos criadores.

Superb Company

I had a conflict with Feedburner Alternative and RSS Redirect Plugin and Yoast SEO. I contacted Nick and WOW. Like a champ and with lightning speed, they fixed the problem. I am very pleased. And thank you.
