A Quick Feedburner Coding Tip

I see a lot of blogs featuring a Feedburner email subscription form in their blog’s sidebar. At the same time showing off how many readers they have through the feedcount chicklet, also from Feedburner. I have provided a quick guide on how to place the feedburner feedcount chicklet inside your feedburner email subscription form to provide a nice clean look.

This is the sample code for the email subscription form:

Feedburner email subscription code:

<form style=”border:1px solid #ccc;padding:3px;text-align:center;” action=”http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverify” method=”post” target=”popupwindow” onsubmit=”window.open(‘http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverifySubmit?feedId=1391240’, ‘popupwindow’, ‘scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520’);return true”><p>Enter your email address:</p><p><input type=”text” style=”width:140px” name=”email”/></p><input type=”hidden” value=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~e?ffid=1391240″ name=”url”/><input type=”hidden” value=”Orangeinks” name=”title”/><input type=”hidden” name=”loc” value=”en_US”/><input type=”submit” value=”Subscribe” /><p>Delivered by <a href=”http://www.feedburner.com” target=”_blank”>FeedBurner</a></p> paste the feedcount chicklet code here </form>

After you paste the email subscription code in your website all you have to do is insert the feed count chicklet code in the email subscription code form. You must insert the chicklet code (sample below) before the </form> tag.

Feedburner feedcount chicklet code:

<p><a href=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/orangeinks”><img src=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~fc/orangeinks?bg=f0f0f0&fg=000000&anim=0″ height=”26″ width=”88″ style=”border:0″ alt=”” /></a></p>

There you have it. You will have a neat email subscription form with your feedcount in it (you can check out my sidebar). You can also edit the text inside the form to provide a more personal touch in your email subscription form.
