How to migrate from Feedblitz to FeedPress

To migrate a feed from FeedBlitz to your FeedPress account, you will need to follow a few simple steps below.

Step 1

Login to your Feedblitz account and click on MANAGE FEED on your feed dashboard.

Step 2

In the QUICK INFO section, click on MIGRATE.

Step 3

Click the confirmation box at the bottom and then Start 30-day Migration to begin the move.

Step 4

Once this is done, Feedblitz will create a permanent redirection back to your original RSS feed and you can now add the original feed in your FeedPress account.

Site configuration for the feed

The goal of this tutorial is to migrate your FeedBurner feed to FeedPress but also to setup a « whitelabel » system that will allow your users not to see the FeedPress address but the one from your own feed. If one day you want to leave FeedPress, you won't need to do a new migration similar to the one you're doing right now.

If you are using WordPress

You can install the  WordPress FeedPress plugin. Everything is taken care of by the plugin, you won't have to do the hard stuff.

If you are using Tumblr

Go to our  dedicated page about Tumblr feed setup.

If you are using Blogger

Just go to your Blogger's settings, find the "Other" section, and fill the "Post Feed Redirect URL" field:

If you are using SquareSpace

Go to your **Blog > Blog Settings**, find the **"Syndication"** section, and fill the **"RSS Feed Replacement URL"** field:

Please note that SquareSpace doesn't support conditional redirection, so you have to make people subscribe to the FeedPress feed URL and not your original URL.  More info here.

Apache and .htaccess

We must establish a temporary redirection of your address, i.e., `http://www.mycoolwebsite.com/feed` to `http://feedpress.me/MyCoolWebsite` while leaving the direct access to FeedPress so that it can update the feed. For a typical .htaccess configuration, it would give this:
# BEGIN FEEDPRESS
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedValidator [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedPress [NC]
RewriteRule ^feed/?$ http://feedpress.me/MyCoolWebsite [R=302,NC,L]
# END FEEDPRESS
Be careful: put those lines at the beginning of your .htaccess file to be sure that your redirection will correctly work.

NGINX

if ($http_user_agent !~ (FeedValidator|FeedPress)){
    rewrite ^/feed$ http://feedpress.me/MyCoolWebsite redirect;
}
Please note that ^feed$ can change, here I'm redirecting /feed but if you have to redirect /rss, it will be ^rss$ and so forth. You have to change MyCoolWebsite to your FeedPress feed name as well.
Also note that we also leave access to FeedValidator, which is a W3C online validation tool.
