UPDATE #2: Okay, set the subdomain back to
eringpwnsgmail.feedproxy.ghs.google.com, and it’s working now. Strange, that did not work for me last night. Maybe Google has fixed it?
UPDATE: At the time of posting, the solution below worked. But now for some reason, it is not. I am looking into it.
I recently logged on to FeedBurner and what do you know, Google acquired them. I had heard the news awhile back, but never saw the need to check in, as my feed was working properly. However, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to check it out.
Everything was pretty simple. The interface had not changed much, simply a new web address. I then proceeded to move my feeds to Google’s servers. That was pretty easy as well, just a few clicks.
My problems started when I remembered that I have feeds.eddieringle.com setup as a CNAME to the FeedBurner servers, so I found the MyBrand page in my FeedBurner account. I followed the directions and set my domain’s DNS settings so that they point to
eringpwnsgmail.feedproxy.ghs.google.com. I waited and because I trusted that Google knew what they were doing, I let it sit.
Well, when I went to check feeds.eddieringle.com, I got a nice big 404. I started investigating. No one seemed to have a solution, so I did what was obvious to me and I found the domain that worked. http://feedproxy.google.com/ is basically what http://feeds.feedburner.com/ was. I then deleted the DNS setting I had set previously and replaced it so that feeds.eddieringle.com pointed to
feedproxy.google.com, and what do you know?
So there you have it, if the settings Google provides you with on the FeedBurner site do not work, try my solution. After all, I subscribe to a few blogs out there, and I don’t want that stream of new posts to stop.
