Finding the FeedBurner feed ID

WordPress themes with optional eMail subscription links integrated into them require you to enter your FeedBurner IDs. Read no further if you already use FeedBurner and know your FeedBurner ID. If not…

How do I ?

  • You have to sign-up for a FeedBurner account first.
  • After you’ve signed-up and are logged in, you’ll have to create a feed (burn a feed). You can create any number of feeds. Each of those feeds will have a unique ID.
  • After you’re done creating a feed, if you click on it, you’ll be taken to that particular feed’s settings panel.
  • While you’re there, activate the ‘email subscriptions’ service in your feed settings panel (it’s under the ‘publicize’ tab) to provide your readers with email updates.

Now, all the while you were browsing through your feed’s settings panel, if you look in your browser’s address bar, you’ll find the URLs ending with a number (…?id=xxxxxxx). Yes, that is your FeedBurner ID for that particular feed.

What the bleep is a Feed?

If you have no clue what a feed is, here’s an excellent video by CommonCraft. You probably will not find a better & simpler explanation anywhere on the web. It gives you the all essential bigger picture which otherwise takes a considerable amount of time to see.

and why FeedBurner?

We have almost no control over our default WordPress feeds. FeedBurner is an advanced feed management service which lets us do a lot of things to the default feed. Here are a few.

  • We can track the feed statistics.
  • Create custom feed urls.
  • We can include ads in our feeds as well.
  • Place those ‘submit to’ links to social media sites.

    Excellent explanation!

    I will be linking to this page for “How to find your feedburner id” support with all my up coming WordPress themes.

    Thank you and hope this serves you well. :)

    (The added video is the icing on the cake)

  2. Jacques says:

    Unfortunately this option do not work with the new feedburner by google anymore. Users that tried to update their feed or signed up at feedburner.google.com don’t have that 7 digit ID anymore and the submit URL has changed as well.

    Hope you’ll be able to release an updated version of your great theme soon !

  3. David Young says:

    Just reiterating what Jacques said – Feedburner mail link no longer works since feeds have been transferred to Google’s service.

  4. Rafał says:

    This option work with the new feedburner by google, but You have to modify ../themes/primepress/subscribe.php

    Change href=”http://www.feedburner.com
    to
    href=”http://feedburner.google.com

    [code]
    <a target="_blank" href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/emailverifySubmit?feedId=" title="Subscribe via Email" >Subscribe via eMail
    [/code]

  5. valmg says:

    I’m also hoping to find a way to make the mail link work under the google feeds.

  6. Rogier says:

    When you moved to a google account with feedburner (something you have to eventually I guess). You get a new ID. Mine is something like this: 7ec211ggc1k0nghp3phohuji4s
    And then I was going to write that it all works, but it doesn’t.

    So, I just hacked the “subscribe.php” and put the link in hard. Still fill in your ID, else the link doesn’t show (it’s the second HREF on the page).

    It’s a hack, but it works.

    Thanks Ravi for such a great theme!

    cheers

  7. Zack says:

    Ravi,

    Quick question:

    On some themes, there is a simple way (in the dashboard) to make a page the homepage, so that when a user navigates to a URL, that page is where they end up, rather than the main blog page.

    Do you know how to accomplish this with your theme?

    Thanks!

  8. WereBear says:

    Just wanted to note that I used my complicated Feedburner id, as referenced in #6, and it did work; at least, it displayed my Feedburner subscriber page.

  9. Suraj Reddy says:

    To make the feeds work with the updated feedburner, you need to edit subscribe.php:

    Change This:

    <a target=”_blank” href=”http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverifySubmit?feedId=” title=”Subscribe via Email” >Subscribe via eMail

    To This:

    Subscribe via eMail

  10. Suraj Reddy says:

    You need to change the href part to your email subscription link – for me it is “http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=stringo0&loc=en_US”

  11. alex says:

    If this becomes the new way people use/read the web, then how will websites stay in business if users don’t visit the website to bring in advertising dollars?

  12. As Suraj described in #9, change the href adress at subscribe.php and put that same adress at wordpress dashboard-appearance-prime press options- feed burner id, and eeverything will work fine.

    Hope you’ll be able to release an updated version of your great theme soon !

  34. Hi Ravi,

    Thanks for the topic I am struggling to find the feedburner by google as I don’t think the new feedburner has the correct API. FeedBurner offers different APIs for different purposes and I cannot see the one connected to this release. Hopefully you will provide an updated release soon. Thanks anyway. Emma

  36. very nice blogs thanks admin

  37. jimmy says:

    I’m also hoping to find a way to make the mail link work under the google feeds.

  38. To everyone having issues with the Feedburner ID and the eMail subscriptions,

    You can just set your Feedburner ID (under PrimePress options) to your Feed Address (everything after “http://feeds.feedburner.com/”).

    Then you just need to modify the subscribe.php file of your theme to use the new Google eMail URL. On line 9 of subscribe change:

    <a target=”_blank” href=”http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverifySubmit?feedId=” title=”Subscribe via Email” >Subscribe via eMail

    to

    <a target=”_blank” href=”http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=” title=”Subscribe via Email” >Subscribe via eMail

  39. p.s. – don’t forget to close the anchor tag in that code. The comment system seems to have deleted it in my comment above.
