More on Moving your RSS Feeds

David Rothman asks...

I'm facing a challenge with my blog's feed that I'm hoping you can advise me on.  When I first started my blog, I used the native Wordpress feed (http://davidrothman.net/feed ), but I have recently switched to a FeedBurner feed because I love the FeedFlare features that add links to let subscribers do things like quickly and conveniently bookmark a post in del.icio.us.  I'd like to make the transition to the FeedBurner feed complete, but I don't want to inconvenience or annoy my blog's subscribers.  Also, I can't exactly turn off the native Wordpress feed because it actually provides the information that FeedBurner uses. Is there any advice you can offer?

I had the same problem. My feed was rss.xml and was sub'ed directly and in my feedburner config. I created a new feed index.xml and changed my FeedBurner settings to point to index.xml instead. Then I redirected rss.xml to feedburner. Everything worked.
