This plugin allows you to output your feedburner subscriber count anywhere on your blog. All you need to do is put the [feedburner] tag in a post. It also gives you the ability to add a (text) widget that allows you to add the feedburner tag as well.
This plugin integrates with Worpdress’ built-in scheduling system to cache the subscriber count. This allows it to be displayed quickly and efficiently.
The URL below is demonstrating its use in the widget.
Note Sometimes the Feedburner API is unreliable and will return 0 results. If it doesn’t work the first time, just wait a while and try again.

- If Feedburner returns 0 results (which it will sometimes 🙁 ), the plugin now keeps the previously retrieved value. Prevents your blog from displaying that you have 0 readers.
