Customizing the eNews & Updates Section

September 15, 2007

I am a really big fan of using Feedburner, which is the leading provider of media distribution and audience engagement services for blogs and RSS feeds. Our Web-based tools help bloggers, podcasters and commercial publishers promote, deliver and profit from their content on the Web.

The “Theme eNews & Updates Section” section in the left hand column of the homepage is coded to use the Feedburner Email Subscriptions feature – one that I use across all of my sites because I really like it. It seems that the majority of people redirecting their feeds use Feedburner, which is why I coded the newsletter signup section that way.

In order for that to work, all you need to do is go into the home.php file and look for this piece of code:

value="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~e?ffid=FEEDBURNERID"

Replace the FEEDBURNERID with your numerical ID, and then it will function properly.
