Announcing a Feedburner WordPress Widget

UPDATE(02/19/2007):
The plugin has now been updated to version 2.2. This change incorporates some changes sent from Ying-Chieh Liao. There are two changes to the plugin.

The first change is that the user only needs to input their feedburner id, not the whole URL. So, if you update, you may have to re-enter this information. So, instead of putting in “http://feeds.feedburner.com/jeremysbraindump”, you only have to put in “jeremysbraindump”.

The second change add a little tiny text link for the feed. You could use this instead of one of the chicklets for example.

As always, if you have any feedback, let me know.
—————————————-

UPDATE (08/16/2006):
The plugin has now been updated to version 2.1. This change incorporates Diona’s changes of adding a li and closing /li to each line. This should be purely cosmetic and not change any funtionality. Please let me know if it does.
—————————————-

UPDATE (05/17/2006):
The plugin has now been updated to version 2.0. 2.0 gives you the ability to select which chicklets you want to display from Feedburners list. This is configurable through the normal widget configuration under Presentation. It has been tested with multiple themes. Everything seems to work, as far as I can tell. However, I do not have accounts with all of the syndication sites, so I do not know for sure, if they work. One site that seems to have trouble is Newsgator. However, the code looks just like Feedburner’s code. So, I think this is either their problem or C|Net’s problem.


… the ability to select which chicklets …

I also changed the default title to be: Subscribe through Feedburner. This is also used as text when you hover over a chicklet.
—————————————-

UPDATE(05/15/2006):
The plugin has now been updated to version 1.1. 1.1 follow’s Andy’s comment and intercepts the normal feed location in the header of the page. It redirects these feeds to Feedburner. However, it does not do anything with your original feeds, they are still there. But, if a syndication program automatically scans your blog page, it will detect the Feedburner feed and use that.

Because of this, I would recommend setting up Feedburner before you activate my plugin. That way, when Feedburner scans your blog for the feed, it actually finds something. Otherwise, you have to know the location of your feed, such as http://blog.blog.com/feed?=rss.

Anticpated features of 2.0 still include using chicklets from all blog services that Feedburner hooks into.
—————————————-

This is the initial version of my Feedburner widget for WordPress. This allows you put Feedburner subscription links into your WordPress sidebar and arrange it with the rest of your widgets.

The initial 1.0 version just allows for the large icon to be displayed. Also, the title “Subscribe with Feedburner” is hardcoded.

To install, just download the plugin from here. Uncompress it and place it in your wordpress/wp-content/plugins/widgets directory. Then go to your admin page of your blog and activate it under Plugins. After that, goto your Presentation->Sidebar Widgets page. Drag it over to the sidebar where you want it displayed.

To configure it, click on the configure icon. You should see a Title: and a Feed URL: options. The Title is just what you want people to see when they hover over the feed icon. The Feed URL is where you put the location of your blog feed on Feedburner. Theoretically, you should just be able to change BLOGNAME under the defaults and everything should work.

For example, under my options, I have:

Title: Subscribe to my feed, Jeremy’s Brain Dump

Feed URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/jeremysbraindump

I hope that this is of value to someone.

Future versions will probably have a modifiable title and all of the icon versions that Feedburner has.

Any comments or suggestions are more than welcome.

    Check ouy the feed_link filter hook, too. It lets you modify the links in the <head> section of your pages. Those links are the ones programs use to auto-discover your feeds. If you want all feed traffic going through FeedBurner, you’ll filter those links!

    So, if understand this correctly…

    I would attempt to modify these three lines in the header:

    link rel=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml” title=”RSS 2.0: Artikel” href=”http://blog.finke.ws/?feed=rss2″ /
    link rel=”alternate” type=”text/xml” title=”RSS .92: Artikel” href=”http://blog.finke.ws/?feed=rss” /
    link rel=”alternate” type=”application/atom+xml” title=”Atom 0.3: Artikel” href=”http://blog.finke.ws/?feed=atom” /

    And I would do this with a filter hook. Where would that code be called from in the widget? Up where I check for the existance of widgets? Or do I need to write a plugin for it? Don’t the headers get created before the widgets are loaded? Or does it check for filters before and html gets generated??

    Thanks!

    Jeremy, I altered this widget to be a little more standards compliant with the markup. How can I get this update to you? I thought it might be more helpful to update it and share the change with you.

    Hey Dude,
    Love the widget. Any chance of updating it to have the feedburner email option on it? This would just top it right off!

    JMTC, keep up the great work.

    xtime,

    You need to install it just like any other plugin/widget. You can check the codex for more information at: http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins.

    It does not display any statistics. I am not sure of anything that does. I just wanted to manage them all centrally via feedburner, which is what this does.

    your plugin somehow kills the links to my feeds inside my footer. before your plugin was activated the code looked like this:

    “>Entries RSS
    “>Comments RSS

    the result was a link to my feeds but after activating your plugin the generated links look like this:

    feed:///

    what should my code look like so your plugin can just elegantly replace them?

    Not sure… I noticed that you are running 2.2. Something may have changed in the WP api.

    Notice in your source you get:

    link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Pensiunea Nora RSS Feed" href="" /

    What the widget should do is catch your default feeds and substitute the feedburner ones.

    Do your icons work at all?

    Hi Jeremy, very useful widget, thanks. But the Badge chicklet is not working, basically no graphic shows though you can just about find the link.

    Also, where do you get these Share and Enjoy links from??

    Email me back if you can?
