Feedburner

Description

Feedburner12 is an awesome feed management service. You can do some magic using Feedburner and letting them manage your feeds.

Simply go the http://www.feedburner.com and paste URL address of the feed (or web page that contains the feed). In this example I have used the feed from the main http://www.wikidot.com page with Wikidot.com news.

I have simply put http://www.wikidot.com into Feedburner. However on the main Wikidot's page there already is a FrontForum module that generates a feed from selected categories.

Ok, what I can do now? Feedburner rewrites my feed which is now available at: http://feeds.feedburner.com/wikidot/news. This is also readable by browsers that can not handle feeds. Firefox 2.0 handles them nicely allowing you to subscribe to feeds, but Firefox 1.5 and Explorer 6 can not do this.

Now when the feed is added you can do various things:

Allowing users to subscribe by email

Form

Simply go (within your Feedburner account) to Publicize » Email subscriptions, copy the form HTML and paste it like this:

[[embed]]
<form style="border:1px solid #ccc;padding:3px;text-align:center;" action="http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverify" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="window.open('http://www.feedburner.com', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return true"><p>Enter your email address:</p><p><input type="text" style="width:140px" name="email"/></p><input type="hidden" value="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~e?ffid=578946" name="url"/><input type="hidden" value="Wikidot.com news" name="title"/><input type="submit" value="Subscribe" /><p>Delivered by <a href="http://www.feedburner.com/" target="_blank">FeedBurner</a></p></form>
[[/embed]]

which results in a subscription form:

Sorry, no match for the embedded content.

You can actually use it to receive daily digest of Wikidot.com site news by email.

Simple link

If the form above does not work, try this:

[http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverifySubmit?feedId=910615&amp;loc=en_US Subscribe to Wikidot.com Community Site - new forum threads by Email]

Headline Animator

Create and customize an animated banner that cycles through your feed's five most recent items. It's an easy way to promote your content anywhere you can place a snippet of HTML.

Hint: Within feedburner.com, look for the Publicize tab, then for Headline Animator.
