As you may know, I’ve been having much trouble with FeedBurner and other social networking sites in my attempts at republishing. Whenever I try to burn the feed, FeedBurner says the feed times out. However, it checks out OK with a validator and other readers like Google Reader have no trouble with it. I’m being hosted on SiteGround and running WordPress 2.8.4. Anyone have any idea?
Also, I’m trying to republish my feeds to Twitter and Facebook, but it still seems a bit of a hack. I use FeedWordPress to create the Breaking News category. I want to tweet all the posts on the blog, even those created by the auto-poster and myself, but I only want my stuff to go to Facebook. To help with this, I’ve set up two RSS feeds: one for breaking news and one for everything else. I pipe both feeds through FriendFeed. This, in turn gets sent to Twitter while Facebook reads the non-Breaking News feed.
Confused yet? Yeah, so am I. In theory, this should all work, but I’m getting duplicate posts on Twitter. I’ve tried to use TwitterTools as a WordPress plugin, but it doesn’t seem to update for the auto-posts.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to smooth all this out or an elegant solution?
UPDATE: Ok. I seem to have worked it out.
