This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.




  • Easy installation and setup
  • Use <?php echo fbc_count() ?> to output the count. No unneeded options, no extra markup, place it wherever you want.
  • If feed count cannot be retrieved, you can choose to display a custom ‘N/A’ text or keep the last retrieved count.
  • Performance optimized for retrieval and parsing of the result.
  • Average count calculation between dates. Since FeedBurner produces different readers count for each day, you can display to your users an average of, for example, the last 30 days.


  1. Upload feedburnercount.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Adjust its settings according to your preferences under Settings
  4. Place <?php echo fbc_count() ?> to print out the readers count in your templates


Help! It’s not working

Check the HTML code of the page (by viewing the source in your browser), and find the place where fbc_count() is called. A HTML comment might be there explaining the cause.

Isn’t there a plugin like this already?

Yes, but it was unmaintained and needed improvement. This one is much more reliable and flexible.
