Your own logo in the WordPress RSS feed

Disappear or not finally Feedburner there are features of this service that we can easily clone and today we will see one of them. I mean the personalization of the feed, in this case adding an image and own logo to the RSS feed for a better identification and branding.

Also, is very simple because with a few codes added to our function plugin or even file fucntions.php of our WordPress theme, we'll have what we're looking for.

It would be something like this:

The best thing about this code is that of one stroke we customize the Atom feeds, RSS and even the RDF, adding icons and logos to our liking … and our visitors. You only have to pay attention – to modify them – to the lines where the routes to the icons and logos are indicated, and change them for the ones you are going to use. In the example, the folder " / images / " is used within the active theme

Also, as a plus, the logo will link to your website just as we could do with Feedburner.

Of course, the hard way you can always eliminate WordPress feeds but that's radical decisions.

JetPack as a substitute for Feedburner for email subscriptions • WordPress Help

Feedburner is a very effective feed subscriptions manager and most of all is almost the only decent subscribe for email subscriptions but lately it seems that Google has it quite abandoned . If some time ago he had included the possibility of sending new publications to your favorite social profiles, not many months later he eliminated this functionality practically without warning and betrayal.

And this is just an example.

So why not look for a substitute for email subscriptions ?, it's more and why not look at a plugin that many of us already have installed? . Yes, I'm talking about JetPack which curiously has an email subscription system that also works great.

But you'll ask is it a good option or a substitute for Feedburner? surprisingly yes, and it improves in some aspects.

For example, its greatest virtue is that new publications are not sent once a day but are automatically issued thereby in less than half an hour your subscribers have in their email your new article .

Another advantage is that, when most email subscription plugins (there are and many) use the function ] wp_mail from WordPress, the email subscription system of JetPack sends the updates directly to the servers and from the servers of WordPress.com, which is responsible for distributing them .

There are more, and that is that your subscribers can manage his " readings " of WordPress.com and subscriptions to webs with this JetPack system in a single site, in his WordPress.com reader, and choose to send the publications.

Additionally, to You, you can follow the activity of subscriptions in the JetPack statistics system .

I think there are enough reasons, and more than Feedburner offers. Do you dare ?, Well let's see how to activate them …

1. Activate the JetPack subscription system

The first thing is to go to the JetPack screen (which you have to install before, of course) and activate the subscription system if you have not already done so.

2. Set up subscriptions

The next thing is to configure some subscription settings. For this you have a button just activate the subscriptions, but you will also find them manually in "Settings -> Comments" of the WordPress Desktop.

In both cases you get to these 2 adjustments, to decide if you offer a full subscription under the comments form of each entry or alone, or also to each new comment, which also serves as a subscriptions system to new comments, double function.

And what you will see on your site will look something like this:

3. Offer the subscription by email

In addition to the box we have seen before, like Feedburner, we have a form to facilitate the subscription by email anywhere on our site, in this case in the form of a widget, and very easy to configure.

In "Appearance -> Widgets" of your Desktop you will find the new subscription widget to be able to add it where you want from your sidebar …

From which you can configure As you like the messages that your visitors will see, to decide how to encourage them to subscribe, something like this could be …

If you want to personalize, and you're not afraid to touch code, you can tune to your liking the form following these indications .

4. Managing your subscriptions

Finally, in the JetPack statistics screen, you will find a message with the number of "followers" (this is only for you) at the left, which are the subscribers to your site.

If you click on the link of the " followers " you will see a full list of your subscribers, with their emails and the time since they subscribed, that for obvious reasons of respect for privacy I will not reproduce.

The emails they will receive are in HTML so they are fully operational for what a subscriber by email it must be offered, not like some subscription plugins by email, that send text-mode publications.

Also, as with Feedburner, your subscribers will receive a previous email to confirm the subscription, like so they can always manage their their scripts and cancel them so respect for the decisions of your subscribers is also total.

Something that is also great is that this system you have both WordPress.com and your WordPress hosted on your server.


As you can see, it is a complete system, if you hurry me more than Feedburner, which only offers a code to use in a widget and customize a bit, and the list of subscribers. The only thing that Feedburner gives you is a system for to export that list as an Excel or CSV file to customize the source and logo in the email and nothing else.

What nobody offers you, and that is the biggest handicap when deciding on one system or another, and for which sometimes it costs to be encouraged to change it is a system of "exporting import" subscribers, but it is not so serious, some will continue to receive their subscription by Feedburner, if you already had it, and the rest will do it from your JetPack, as simple as that.

Publish without anyone knowing (almost)

For some time I have ruled this question through the forum, including in a comment here on the blog. What arose was the need to hold a bit of one of those great virtues of WordPress, the fact that just post something update notices are sent, pingbacks, trackbacks, not even hear Feedburner or your subscribers to the RSS, those little things that help to popularize our site.

But it must be recognized that, sometimes, we may need our content published so that only "web" visitors, those who visit us directly, find out about the new content.

If this is your situation you can, to start, use this simple plugin, Silent publish . What it offers us is a new checkbox in the ticket editor that, at will, allows us to decide if the publication of that particular ticket will send a notification notice to the notification services, and if it will send pingbacks and trackbacks. What you will do is usually publish on the cover of your site and in the RSS feed.

Of course, you can uncheck the box for pingbacks and trackbacks on time, but with this plugin you do it with just one click and, in addition, you have the plus of not sending the publication to the notification services, something that in WordPress you can only do globally.

Now, if you want to go a step further and that is not even published entry in the feed then we have Stealth publish plugin of the same author that offers us an exclusive web publication, without the rest of the world finding out.

Maybe a way to force your readers to visit your website, or to avoid subscriptions by RSS so as to prioritize subscriptions by email, you choose to use it as usual.

Subscriptions by email without feedburner • WordPress Help

If you have a blog on WordPress.com you do not need to use services like Feedburner or similar to offer your readers the email subscription to your content .

Since yesterday already you can use the Subscriptions widget to the blog and, in this way, offer a simple system to receive in your email what you post.

In addition, the system identifies if the user is registered in ] WordPress.com so if you are, you just have to click to subscribe, and if not, you are asked to enter the email.

Then, you can manage your subscriptions (if you are a WordPress.com user) in a simple way on the page to the effect in your profile. A joy that I do not know if it can be implemented in a blog hosted by any plugin, which would not be bad.
