Hi All, we just redesigned and rebuilt a website using the same URL as the previous (blog) site. The old site (someone else built it and then I inherited it as his developer) was using an old plugin called, "FeedBurner FeedSmith
" by Steve Smith to redirect the /feed to the feedburner address so we emulated that set up by downloading and installing the old plugin (b/c it's no longer in the WP repository or supported).
First, I don't know much about RSS and feeds but I do remember when I used Feedburner for a client many years ago, people subscribed through Feedburner. This client uses ConvertKit and we have ConvertKit sign ups forms on the website. Then, we have an RSS Automation set up at Convertkit which picks up the feed. But we had this set up on the old site too.
I don't get why the previous developer used the Feedburner redirection and plugin. And do we need to keep it? Can we just change the RSS automation feed to /feed and remove the redirect?
The issue is that it's not working. Even though the redirection is working and the /feed URL redirects to the feedburner URL, the feedburner URL is not picking up new blog posts (and it did on the old site).
And actually, I removed the redirect from the .htaccess file and the Feedburner plugin and cleared all cache (Website, server and Cloudflare) but it's not working and I can't get any /feed now.
