Bad Burner

I don't know how many of you use Feedburner. I rather like the fact that there is a service that can deliver your post via e-mail to those who do not have a reader. I also like the fact that this service is now a part of the Google suite of services.

One aspect of Feedburner is something called FeedFlair. This allows you to add additional functionality to your feed that gives the subscriber a way of interacting with the feed. The one I like the best is Comment Count which gives the subscriber a link to go directly to the comments section of the blog without having to load the page first.

What I have noticed is that ever since September 29th, the link has disappeared from my feed. I noticed this one time before and somehow it fixed itself. I have been looking at other people's blogs that incorporate FeedFlair and I do not see comments there either. This could be because they did not check the option in Feedburner. So if you use Feedburner and have Comment Count turned on, check your feed to see if comments appears as a link in your feed.

I can safely say that I did not change anything either in my blog's layout, or in Feedburner between when it was working and when it wasn't. I am hoping that it is something that the Google-Gods can fix because I do not want those who subscribe to my posts via. E-mail to not able to comment if they want.

I wish I knew how to help you. Actually, I wish I knew what you were even talking about---I'm not technically savvy:)

Hmm, I don't see the comments link on your post in my feed but I do in other peoples. I have no idea about this type of stuff.

I don't mess with anything extra, it only causes problems
