Update: 5:00pm… I think I figured it out!
The feeds are up and running. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. :)
In short, here’s what I need help with:
Currently, my http:
The situation and details:
UPDATE: 4pm, I’ve changed a fuck ton of stuff backwards and forwards. Here’s where it stands now:
- added a custom redirect to my .htaccess file [added the line *redirect /feeds/posts/default http://dumbdomme.com/feed*]. It seems http:
/(blogger) now redirects to dumbdomme.com/feeds (wordpress) /www .dumbdomme .com /feeds /posts
- changed my Feedburner settings to original feed: dumbdomme.com/feeds
- changed my Blogger settings to not direct the feed anywhere
- I’m also using the Blogger 301 Redirect plugin on WP.
Google Reader is still showing “fetching error” when it tries to update. However, clicking directly on the link http:
I have a feeling it’s stuck in some sort of endless redirect loop.
(I’m not sure what details/settings are important, so some of the stuff below might be irrelevant): Since August 2011, my Blogger blog has always had it’s own domain–www.dumbdomme.com. When I subscribed to DumbDomme.com in Google Reader, the feed was http:

I’ve tried the “FeedBurner FeedSmith Extend” plugin and the “FD Feedburner Plugin” and neither seemed to work, but I don’t know if I set them up correctly. I tried modifying the .htaccess file, but I assume I did it incorrectly because it took the whole site down (I changed it back to the original and the site is up again).
I also changed a couple of settings back and forth on my Blogger account. Here’s the current (relevant?) settings:
How do I consolidate or redirect my feeds without losing current subscribers? I’ve tried some things (the plugins, .htaccess file, changing various settings), but I’m not sure if I did them/configured them correctly.
Can anyone suggest what to do? If you’ve switched from Blogger to WP or otherwise successfully redirected your feeds, how did you do it? Any resources, instructions, or suggestions are appreciated.
Feel free to leave a comment or email me at [email protected] If you need extra information about settings or other stuff, please let me know.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
