Create a new text file and save it in php format and name it feed and then paste the following code in the file and save it. So it will be feed.php
<?php //get cool feedburner count $whaturl="https://feedburner.google.com/api/awareness/1.0/GetFeedData?uri=<strong>Feed Here</strong>"; //Initialize the Curl session $ch = curl_init(); //Set curl to return the data instead of printing it to the browser. curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); //Set the URL curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $whaturl); //Execute the fetch $data = curl_exec($ch); //Close the connection curl_close($ch); $xml = new SimpleXMLElement($data); $fb = $xml->feed->entry['circulation']; //end get cool feedburner count echo $fb; ?>
After pasting these lines to your file we have to add Feedburner user name, so replace the Feed Here with your Feedburner user name on the following line
//get cool feedburner count $whaturl="https://feedburner.google.com/api/awareness/1.0/GetFeedData?uri=<strong>Feed Here</strong>";
Then simply add this line of code wherever you want the counter to display:
<?php include("feed.php"); ?>
Save your feed.php file to your theme files where you have hosted the blog.
