Install Time 30 Seconds....31 seconds for noobs...

Create a new profile field for your users called Feedburner make it single line text....Explain in the description that they are to only use the special name that is attached to the end of the url...not the full url....my example..

Enter in only the special text of your feedburner URL, EXAMPLE : if your feedburner was http://feeds.feedburner.com/gsnforce

you would only enter in gsnforce


Now open up your postbit or postbit_legacy and find


</div>
<if condition="$post[icqicon] or $post[aimicon] or $post[msnicon] or $post[yahooicon]"><div class="info">$post[icqicon] $post[aimicon] $post[msnicon] $post[yahooicon]
</if>


Above it add.....


<if condition="$post[field13]"><a href=http://feeds.feedburner.com/$post[field13]>
<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/$post[field13].gif"></a>
</if>


Now your done!! That simple!!

Takes up a little too much space for me, if it was possible to have just the latest headline displayed within the postbit template that would probally more ergonomic and less time consuming for members visiting with a dialup connection having to wait for members Feedburner images to load.

There's another modification that uses magpie to pull in the member's latest post into the postbit. Something like this is being used over on digitalpoint
