Switch from Blogger’s feed to FeedBurner

By default, Blogger creates a feed link to the posts at the end of each one. If we use Feedburner to manage our feed this link won’t help us a lot, but the link to comment’s feed will. In this article we’ll show you how to change the link to post’s feed without changing the link to comment’s feed.

  1. Go to “Layout” tab, and then to “Edit HTML”. Check “Expand widget template” box.
  2. Search the following code:
  3.  <b:loop values='data:links' var='f'>
    
       <a class='feed-link' expr:href='data:f.url' expr:type='data:f.mimeType' target='_blank'><data:f.name/> (<data:f.feedType/>)</a>
    
    </b:loop>
  4. Replace it with the following:
  5. <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
    
      <b:loop values='data:links' var='f'>
         <a class='feed-link' expr:href='data:f.url' expr:type='data:f.mimeType' target='_blank'><data:f.name/> (<data:f.feedType/>)</a>
      </b:loop>
    
    <b:else/>
    
      <b:loop values='data:links' var='f'>
         <a class='feed-link' expr:href='"http://feeds.feedburner.com/YOURFEED"' expr:type='data:f.mimeType' target='_blank'><data:f.name/> (<data:f.feedType/>)</a>
      </b:loop>
    
    </b:if>
  6. In that code, replace “http://feeds.feedburner.com/YOURFEED” for your feed’s address on Feedburner. Is important to keep the quotes as shown in the code.
  7. Save the changes and it’s done.

Now the link will be more usefull. Anyway, if you wish to subscribe our feed and get everything shown in here, just follow the link:
