How to Redirect WordPress RSS Feed

There are a few plugins and .htaccess methods to redirect the default WordPress feed URL to Feedburner, but if you’re looking  for a way to redirect your feed with a simple WordPress function, copy the code below and paste it into the functions.php file of your theme.

$username = 'gabfire';

function rss_feed_redirect() {
global $feed;
$new_feed = 'http://feeds.feedburner.com/$username';

if (!is_feed()) {
return;
}
if (preg_match('/feedburner/i', $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'])){
return;
}

if ($feed != 'comments-rss2') {
if (function_exists('status_header')) status_header( 302 );
header("Location:" . $new_feed);
header("HTTP/1.1 302 Temporary Redirect");
exit();
}
}
add_action('template_redirect', 'rss_feed_redirect');

Make sure to replace gabfire on line #1 with your FeedBurner username and you’ll be all set to redirect your default WordPress feed URL to FeedBurner!
