Some of you are having problems with your posts not updating, so I thought I would write a tutorial on it.
*Always subscribe to your feeds, so you can keep an eye on them.
What is RSS: Really simple Syndication is the means of subscribing to website feeds.
Before editing, ALWAYS back up your blog! You don't want to lose anything in case you something goes wrong, if your blog is compromised, deleted or hacked. Stay protected.
First: How to back up your Blog template:
Login into your Blogger account. Click the template tab.
Click it and download full template. You will see this box pop up.
It needs to be saved in.xml format. I always rename it. lifeandlinda-jan2013.xml
Now, you have your blog saved and you can always put it back.
Get in the habit of doing on a regular basis.
Make a folder in your documents or pictures, so you know where to find it.
Backup your posts on Blogger
Login into your account, then go into Settings - then click other
Click Export blog. A pop up box will appear:
Click Download Blog. You will see another pop up box like below:
After it's saved, you can rename it....linda blog posts 1-2013
Feedburner Try this first!
First try the FEED Validator here: http://feedvalidator.org/
If all is good, then you will see this button:
If there are errors, it will list them below that, highlighted in yellow.
You should see your feeds dashboard. Click on your blog title.
Click Edit Feed Details...You will something like this:
Click in the box that says Original Feed and highlight it. It should have your blog's address and show max-results=3.If it is not max-results=3, then change the number to 3.
Note that max results sets the number of posts you want to appear in your FeedBurner feed.
Next: Ping your blog. At the bottom of your Feeds edit details, look for Ping.
When that page loads, type in your blog address....Such as www.testblog.com
and then click Ping FeedBurner.
If all is well, the you won't see any errors.
If there is a problem, you will see an error report.
Try clearing your browser's cache and re-try.
FeedBurner does have a size limit. 512k. It's rare for a feed to be larger than that, but some publishing tools generate their original source feeds with no limit. Sometimes with Blogger, the feeds are too big.
Feedburner will NOT update the 'burned' version of your fees, until the original drops below the limit.
If you know that your content postings are regularly very large in size, you might want to keep an eye on the original feed's size.
