feedburner

Last week we transferred our FeedBurner account to Google and encountered some problems. This post discusses the bug fix in specific, and Feedburner in general.

Realize that much of your RSS content will be read off-site. Monitor your feeds so that your content looks good regardless of where it ends up. Stick with absolute URLs for all links and images, whether on-site or off.
