4. Submit your Joomla Feed to FeedBurner

Now that you know the URL of your Joomla's RSS Feed you can easily submit it to FeedBurner, but before you do that make sure that you create a Google account.

  • After you have created a Google account go to the website of FeedBurner and login with:
    1. The email you registered your Google account.
    2. The password of your Google account.
      Last click on "Sign in" to login to FeedBurner.

  • On the next screen you need to enter the URL of your RSS Feed (the one you took note of before) and then click on next.

  • On the next window you may enter:
    1. A title for your Feed, in our example "My News Feed".
    2. An address for your Feed, in our example my-news-feed (will be appended to the end of http://feeds.feedburner.com/)
      Then click on "Next" to continue.
    Screenshot: Enter details of your RSS Feed
  • On the next screen FeedBurner informs you that your Feed was successfully burnt and shows you the URL of your Feed hosted at FeedBurner, in our example http://feeds.feedburner.com/my-news-feed. Then click on "Next" to continue.

Hello,

Many thanks for the advise. I'm working on Joomla 3.5.1 and the page is www.spaether.xyz/members-2016 looks good but I can't get Joomla to desist from linking 'volunteers and members' to the rss feed on the page, really annoying. I've tried for hours there's no function to change the Menu Item type although the instruction refers to such an option,

Details (Menu Item Type: The type of link: Component, URL, Alias, Separator, or Heading)

I don't care if the page has no menu item displayed or one linking to '#' or one without a link, but not with a link to the rss feeder itself, that's not wanted of course.

Does one of you have experience with this and what do you recomment to do, that'd be awesome.

Wishing you all the best for the year.
Many thanks
Oliver

Thanks so much for this guide - I know how long those things take to produce! Much appreciated:) Works a treat (Joomla 1.5) So hard finding out about this stuff sometimes, so refreshing to find it explained so clearly. You're a star!
