[resolved] [plugin: Social Crowd] Feedburner always shows 0 (7 posts)

    The Social Crowd plugin is fantastic, but for some reason my feedburner stats are always coming out at 0 subscribers, when I am certain I have more. I have tried it with a couple of my feeds, and all have the same result.

    Plugin is installed and working fine for Facebook and Twitter. My code is as follows:
    <?php SocialCrowd_Stats('feedburner'); ?>

    I am working on a fix for this, for some reason the CURL request from the plugin is not getting the correct response from feedburner. I am working on a fix... stay tuned.

    Ok I finally figured out what has happened, after hours of tinkering with my curl code I found that google has blocked access to the feedburner stats unless you enable the public API in your Feedburner admin panel.

    Here are the instructions, as included with a new release of Social Crowd,

    If you wish to use the Feedburner stats you must enable access by logging into your Feedburner admin panel http://feedburner.google.com, selecting the feed you want Social Crowd to access, Click on the "Publicize" tab, Select "Awareness API" from the Sidebar, and then click the "Activate" button. This will allow Social Crowd to correctly acquire your Feedburner stats and display them for you.

    Let me know if you have any difficulties or further questions.

    I have the same problem with feedburner.
    I have activated the Awareness API as described above but
    0 readers always shown me.

    Any suggestions?

    Agreed, mine has started doing it again. It was working for a while based on that Awareness API setting, but now it's back to 0.

    I need to confirm it, but I think the Twitter one is doing it as well. I noticed it said 0 the other day, but I will double-check.

    fyi, in October google discontinued the feedburner awareness api. Don't think feedburnner counter is going to work without it.

    Yes bfagan that is correct. Google killed the API so I will be removing Feedburner support in the upcoming release of the plugin.

    Thanks Google.
