FeedBurner Widget

Description

FeedBurner Widget is very simple sidebar widget plugin to easy customize and display your FeedBurner subscribers stats button.

To use it, you have to register by FeedBurner first, to add your feed and to activate the Feed Count service for it. All of the FeedBurner chicklet customization options are available to edit from the menu: WP-Admin: Appearance: Widgets.

The widget is updated to work with the new FeedBurner URIs (feeds2.feedburner.com) after the Google changes. You can see the demo of the plugin in action on Balkans 360 website in the right sidebar.

This widget was written for a customer of ABA Web Design Studio and is listed here with their knowledge. Please contact me if you find any bug in this plugin.

Thanks to Mohanjith for the idea and for the help to add the MyBrand feature support to the FeedBurner Widget.

FAQ

Is this an official FeedBurner plugin?

No, it is not. I have written this plugin for a customer of my company ABA Web Design. It was listed here, because I find it useful and I will be very happy if the FeedBurner users like it too.

Does FeedBurner Widget support the new feeds2.feedburner.com URLs?

Yes, it does. The widget was updated to use the new URIs after the Google changes.

My FeedBurner account is configured to work with my own domain, using the MyBrand service? Is it possible to use the widget with MyBrand instead of the FeedBurner URL?

Yes, it is. FeedBurner Widget has now support for MyBrand. So, you can configure it very easy and use it with your own domain URL. (Thanks to mohanjith for the idea.)
