After scouring the web for like 1h in order to find this information, i did eventually find it, however it was in a couple of different posts on another blog. In order to keep stuff simple, let’s put everything together. Using the benefits of feedburner is a no-brainer, because you get a shitload of useful statistics. The only problem is that you will need to maintain 2 lists of feeds, your own internal feed + the official feedburner’s. And now depends on how many users you have subscribed.
A few notes first tho. First if you use your blog as a directory on your domain rather than a full directory, like http://example.com/blog/ instead of http://example.com/ then you will probably have 2 htaccess files. 1) for the main website and 2) for the blog itself. When you edit the htaccess, you must edit the BLOG htaccess which is usually found in your /blog/ folder if you use the blog-directory-thingy (if you dont, then your main-top-domain-level htaccess will be your blog’s.
Secondly you need to PUT THE CODE BEFORE the WordPress’s own rewrite rules (in case you are using permalinks, and if you dont use permalinks YOU SHOULD!
First off is you go to http://feedburner.com and make an account. Put your original feed there and make sure it displays properly.
Then Apply the code found below in the specific htaccess file on your server
This is just a quick thing, mostly using the default settings, but you really should read the full explanations found at:
