FeedBurner in the Thesis Theme

Here are the first steps I took with my setup on the Thesis Theme for WordPress.

Under Thesis Options under Syndication/Feed click the + sign next to “Set your feed URL:.”

I like to use FeedBurner so here are the steps I follow.

Google FeedBurner

Click the FeedBurner link. Either sign into your account or create a new account.

Go to your blog and right click the Subscribe and Copy Link Location.

Paste this URL into the “Burn a feed right this instant” field on FeedBurner.
Mine looks like this: http://4uqi.com/?feed=rss2

Click the “Next” button.

Name the feed and change the feed address to something that you like.

Click the “Next” button.

You will want to have stats so

Click the “Next” button again.

Click -> Clickthroughs
Click -> I want more! Have FeedBurner Stats also track:

Click the “Next” button.

Click -> Publicize
Click -> PingShot
Click -> Activate

Click -> Optimize
Click -> SmartFeed
Click -> Activate

Now, under your feed name in FeedBurner, right click the RSS “rainbow” graphic and Copy Link Location.
Mine looks like this: http://feeds.feedburner.com/4uqi

Paste your new FeedBurner URL into the “Feed URL” field in Thesis.

Click the Big Ass Save Button!

You are done!
