How to Add RSS Widget That Pops Up Feedburner Options

Sat, 12 Jun 2010 13:36:00 +0000

I would like my RSS widget, when it gets clicked on, to pop up feedburner options for different readers. I believe this is supported by wordpress.com, but not sure, and I can’t find a way to do it. Can anyone help?

It’s not supported by WordPress.com; the RSS widget here is not configurable. What you can do, if you know how to code each of the different options, is put that code in a text widget in your sidebar instead.

@rhapsodyinbooks
G’day to you. :) If you would prefer to use Feedburner to offer e-mail subscriptions instead of the built-in WordPress.com blog subscriptions follow the instructions below:

Do note that what you get is not a widget. It’s a link your can place in a text widget and when clicked then the Feedburner email subscription pop-up appears. BTW the widgets we can use on wordpress.com blogs are limited due to security restrictions. See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

Timethief,
I’m not looking to offer email subscriptions. I am thinking of how, when people click the feed icon, all those choices pop up for readers, such as Google, etc. and then they can click and select the reader and it adds it to their reader automatically.

This is your feed for entries (posts)
http://rhapsodyinbooks.wordpress.com/feed/ and it’s posted in your sidebar. I click it and I see this :
“Subscribe to this feed using” and then a dropdown menu for the feed reader selections:
Bloglines
Live Bookmarks
Choose application
My Yahoo
Google (reader)

Can you not see this?

Just to be crysal clear on this we cannot divert our blog feeds to Feedburner. We can only use Feedburner to offer email subscriptions.

We can also use this widget. The RSS Links Widget allows you to easily add links to your blog’s post and comment RSS feeds in your sidebar. This will provide your readers with a quick way to obtain your blog feed URLs and subscribe to them as they wish (via a web browser or RSS reader, like Google Reader). http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/rss-links-widget/

Timethief,

Oddly, I don’t see what you see when you click on feed. I just see a feed form of the blog and then to add it to a reader I would have to cut and paste the address.

I am on a Mac with Safari, but just to make sure I went over to a PC with Explorer. Still no luck!
