Altering RSS publish URL (5 posts)

    I'm launching a new blog, so there are no prior RSS subscribers. I'd like to use feedburner from the beginning to handle my feeds.

    How do I go about altering WordPress so that I can decide what URL I want my feeds published to (not redirected, but published). For example I want to publish my atom feed to <server>/wp-12345.php instead of to wp-atom.php

    Here's what I want to have happend

    - WP publishes one of my feeds to the new URL wp-12345.php
    - Feedburner grabs wp-12345.php and creates a universal feed from it
    - I set redirects on my server so that the original wp-atom.php (and all other feeds) now redirects to my feedburner address

    Any help would be appreciated. It seems like any other option leaves me with one feed that doesn't get redirected (so that FB has one to read).

    Have you tried just copying wp-atom.php and naming the copy wp-12345.php?

    it seems like that would create a copy of the existing posts, but would WP continue to update the copy? The renamed copy would need to be the live, updated feed.

    wp-atom.php works dynamically (the updating occurs through the WordPress/PHP code found in it). Copies of it would do the same.

    Perfect. Worked wonderfully. Thank you!
