feed count feedburner circulation


1.0.1 1.1 1.2


Returns a database stored Feedburner Circulation Count in plain text or number format. Reduces the Feedburner API calls by only updating the circulation count hourly and serving a database cached result in between. The account you're attempting to get a "Circulation Count" from must have the awareness API turned on. You can use the function <?php circulation_count( $ids, $default, $echo, $format ); ?> in your theme files. The following is an explanation of the parameters the function excepts. For example, if I was Psdtuts+ and wanted to echo out a circulation count that had a fallback or default circulation count in the unlikely event nothing is stored in the database or there is a weird zero result returned, I would do the follow. <?php circulation_count( 'psdtuts', 15000 ); ?> If I wanted to save the count to a variable as a plain integer that I could add to another count or something similar I would do this. <?php $circulation_count = circulation_count( 'psdtuts', 15000, false, false ); ?> If I wanted to echo a formatted count form an array of $ids with a fallback, I would do this. <?php circulation_count( array('psdtuts', 'nettuts'), 200000 ); ?>


  1. Upload feedburner-circulation folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Upgrade Notice:

  • Allows a default result in the off chance Feedburner returns a zero result
  • Update your theme to use the new improved functions (Deprecated ones still work)
  • A much more optimized codebase and should not return a zero result.


Does this plugin require any certain PHP functions?

Yes! Your server must have simplexml_load_file() available or the plugin will fail to work properly. Basically, you server needs to be running PHP 5.
