Hey guys,

I’m working on some wordpress thing, and I would really like to know how can I put on a Counter that counts the RSS Subscriber my site has?

I’ve seen a plugin by Mapelli, but it seems to be virused, any other solutions?

Cheers

This is what I found via a quick Google search: http://www.newsniche.com/how-to-display-your-rss-subscriber-count.php

That will display your subscriber count without using a plugin. However, you have to make sure Curl is running on the host, and it assumes that you’re using FeedBurner for your RSS feed. I haven’t tried it myself, but assuming what you’re working on meets the two requirements (Curl and FeedBurner), it should work fine.

I haven’t seen any tutorials for this online based on RSS feeds that are automatically generated through WordPress (i.e., http://www.yourdomain.com/feed/), only for FeedBurner. (But converting to FeedBurner is extremely easy and most popular sites use it, so I’m not sure if that’s really an issue in most cases.)

Hope that helps. Best of luck on your project.
