Update your Feed please

Ok, I’ve now got the Mint Bird­Feed­er pep­per work­ing. After todays little hic­cough with Feed­burn­er report­ing zero sub­scribers, I decided it was time to util­ise Mint’s func­tion­al­ity for this. I’ve upgraded to Word­Press 2.1.1 so that it will work. If you could not all change your feed read­ers so they point at http://phil.elecricweekend.com/feed that would be great! The Feed­burn­er feed will remain act­ive prob­ably for anoth­er month, but I will take it down after that.
If you are exper­i­en­cing any errors, please let me know.

  1. That’s funny. I just checked my feed­burn­er stats about 30 seconds ago and they’re at zero too.
    I’m on WP 2.1.1 and just did the bird seed­er on mint and it was­n’t work­ing right. In fact I’m hav­ing a lot of prob­lems with my Mint pep­pers. I’ll install one and then anoth­er one dis­s­apears. I need to spend some time on their forum.

  3. Thats odd, must be some­thing wrong down at Feed­burn­er. I’ve had troubles with Bird­Feed­er before but it’s all work­ing now. I do need to update my Mint install and some of the Pep­pers though, they get updated so quickly, its hard to keep up!

  5. Yeah, I know the feel­ing. Kind of makes me feel like the devlopers can­’t win. We get annoyed when stuff isn’t developed and updated, but then when stuff is updated so often it gets irrit­at­ing! ha! Here’s to act­ive devel­op­ment though! 😀

  7. Phil- does the bird­feed­er not work with feed­burn­er? I’ve nev­er had it work­ing prop­erly and after see­ing this art­icle I won­der if I should con­sider switch­ing away from feedburner?

  9. As I under­stand it, if you use Bird­feed­er in con­junc­tion with Feed­burn­er you would only record one hit. I think due to the fact that feed­burn­er dis­trib­utes the feed so it is the only thing that retrieves it from your site.
    I’ve had it work­ing all day and it seems to be work­ing well. It’s nice to see when people get your feed and wat­chi it grow across the day. I’m also told the first day is inflated, for what ever reas­on, but I’m enjoy­ing the bloated count for the day, it stands at 55 atm!
