LearnImportant – Please change your Carsonified subscription URL!

Howdy folks,

We’ve still got about 2,000 folks subscribed to the old Bare Naked App feed. I’d really appreciate it if you could unsubscribe from:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/barenakedapp

to the new feed:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/carsonified

Thanks!
Ryan

  1. Thanks Dan and Aaron – appreciate the tips.

  2. Hey Ryan,

    Feedburner’s got a great paid feature for this, wherein people subscribe to feeds.carsonified.com (or wherever you want) but it still goes through feedburner – that way if they go poof someday, or you want to direct people to new content YOU are in control of the feed.

    Anyways, all the best with it.

  3. I’d say stop cross-posting. That’d do it.

  4. Great post Dan. I have been looking for a way to do this.

  5. Ryan, have you ever considered adding a mod_rewrite rule that redirects all but the FeedBurner bots to the remote feed? That way you control the URL, and can redirect it to whatever location you like in the future.

    Here’s an example rewrite rule:


    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedBurner
    RewriteRule /path/to/feed$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/carsonified [R,L]
