A month back, I ran into a continuous issue of FeedBurner refusing to update feeds for a couple of my blogs. No amount of pinging or feed resyncing would solve the problem, and endless Google searches proved futile. After finally stumbling across a fix, I think I have this issue solved.
So, if you’re having issues with FeedBurner not updating, I recommend these actions:
- Use the FeedBurner FeedSmith plugin (you have to download it from Google).
- Remove any 301 redirects you may have setup in your .htaccess file for the feed.
- If you have a caching plugin installed, make sure it’s not caching the feed or the feed path (/feed/).
- Once done, go into FeedBurner and ping and then resync it.
This has worked for me in every case — hope it works for you, too!
Oh yeah — just a little reminder — if you haven’t seen the previous updates from this blog, I’ve moved all of my project management related postings to a new blog at The Project Web (www.theprojectweb.com) — please check it out and make sure you update your RSS subscription.
