I just made my wordpress website live finally and now trying to set up the RSS. I came across a couple tutorials saying that you have to go to www.yoursite.com/feed copy the link and place it into the URL area in your feedburner account. However what happens if nothing shows up when you go to www.yoursite.com/feed ? It says the URL does not exist, however I have a blog on the site.

Is it because my permalinks aren't set to a custom permalink?


The /feed slug only works if you've turned on pretty permalinks. From the looks of things, you haven't.

Instead, you can use this url:


Once you turn on pretty permalinks, that URL will still work, but the prettyier http://www.averylawoffice.ca/feed will also work.

  • Log in to Feedburner and go to the Publicize tab. Then click on Email Subscriptions in the sidebar. Then click Activate to turn them on. – EAMann Jun 12 '12 at 22:36
