Seem the author left the thread without any responses.

I have just applied for my forum vb4 and it works as well.

If you registered with feedburner, go there and add any sub forums to it and start using from step 7 as the guide above
Demo? you can have a look on my forum, click on rss icon you can understand how it works.

I see what you're trying to do, but it's not very clear.

For example, one of your code examples mentions fbget.php but you previously named the script feedburner.php.

You also didn't mention when creating the second (and subsequent) feeds on feedburner for the individual forums what they should be named. From the example you give,$foruminfo[forumid], obviously they need to be yourforumurlcom-xx ?

I like the idea, I wish it was a bit simpler, my forum has about 40 forums within it. It'd be nice if there was an easy way to get all the IDs, mabe a simpe script which outputs a list of all of them which are in use.
Right, you need create urls in feedburner correstpond to forum id on your forum to make urls works when it gets auto links from your forum.

EG: In FireFox, if you click on the RSS button in the URL bar it will 'find' the stock vBulletin external.php script but his change will instead 'find' your FeedBurner URL instead.

In short, you're hiding the default vB script and are using FeedBurner instead for all of your outgoing feeds that people can subscribe to.
I agree with you but I won't use this way because we have to create all urls according to feedburner and some can be broken if we miss them.

Some SEO guys think that it's better for on-page SEO if we use feedburner on our sites/blogs. For me, just added it yesterday and I need a little time to see it effective or not.

You go feedburner and create urls like this

for example I created

But I stopped from step 9 of the author and using redirection for better purposes.

the link above will be redirected to feedburner

Hope that helps!
