Can't redirect RSS feed to Feedburner

  • Hello,

    I’m trying to redirect my RSS feed to Feedburner. When I test it though by adding feed to the domain name: http://www.valuebygeorge.com/feed it does not appear to go to Feedburner.

    Here are my Feedburner settings:
    Feed Title: Value by George
    Original Feed: http://www.valuebygeorge.com/feed
    Feed Address: http://feeds.feedburner.com/ValueByGeorge

    I uninstalled the original WordPress RSS widget (jetpack I think), installed another one with no luck, uninstalled it and now have a “Primary Feedburner” plugin installed.

    Read some posts that suggested the best way was to modify the .htaccess file with the following after “# END WordPress” so I pasted it in with no results:

    # temp redirect all wordpress feeds to FeedBurner
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine on
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}      ^/?(feed.*|comments.*)        [NC]
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^.*(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
     RewriteRule ^feed/?.*$          http://feeds.feedburner.com/valuebygeorge         [L,NC,R=302]
     RewriteRule ^comments/?.*$      http://feeds.feedburner.com/valuebygeorgecomments [L,NC,R=302]
    </IfModule>

    It seems WordPress just keeps using the original RSS feed setup and ingnores Feedburner. BTW, using Twenty Ten 1.2 theme.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    George

  • Put that htaccess chunk ABOVE the #start wordpress line instead 🙂

    Ipstenu,

    Thank you for the suggestion. I tried your fix but it didn’t seem to change anything. The file htaccess now looks like this. Did I do it right?

    DirectoryIndex index.php
    # temp redirect all wordpress feeds to FeedBurner
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/?(feed.*|comments.*) [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^.*(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
    RewriteRule ^feed/?.*$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/valuebygeorge [L,NC,R=302]
    RewriteRule ^comments/?.*$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/valuebygeorgecomments [L,NC,R=302]
    </IfModule>

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Do I need to uninstall the Primary Feedburner plugin while trying this fix?

    Any other thoughts?

    Thanks,
    George

    you might wanna try changing this line:

    ^feed/?.*$

    for

    ^http://yourdomain.com/feed ….

    I’ve this and works fine for me:
    http://vegamami.altervista.org/feed/
    http://vegamami.altervista.org/comments/feed/

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    
    # Redirecting Feeds to Feedburner START
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^.*(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
    RewriteRule ^feed/$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/VegAmami [L,R=302]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^.*(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
    RewriteRule ^comments/feed/$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/VegAmamiCommenti [L,R=302]

    PS: i do not use any feedburner plugin (just this htaccess fix) 😐
