Removing feedburner from Movable type

| | Comments (0)

In order to isolate and debug a problem we were having with a phantom feedburner link it was necessary to remove it completely from this site. Apart from editing the index.html redirects for the xml and rdf files there is one other file that you have to watch out for.

Depending on the feedburner plug in that you use it may be necessary to remove a .htaccess file from the template listing. This file redirects all atom.xml and index.rdf requests to feedburner. Once the file has been removed from the template listing it is also necessary to telnet on to your web site and physically delete the .htacess file Note:. Make sure you are removing the relevant .htaccess file
