  2. What? *puzzled*

  3. There is some added functionality within bloglines if you claim your blog. This post and the first comment are there to get bloglines to know that this is my blog so I can edit those settings.

  4. So what does this ‘claim’ thing do anyway?

  5. Were you able to claim your blog on Bloglines? I’ve haven’t been able to do so for mine. I added the required claim key to an existing post and the user key to my template, but keep getting “verification failed” messages.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have!

  6. Luc: The claim lets me control whether my blog or comments will appear in bloglines. I haven’t been able to get it to show me the controls though

    Angie: Funny site, I’ve subscribed now 🙂 I looked at your feeds and don’t see the claim key in the feed. This is what is causing your problems with the claim verification. It shows up fine in the regular page though.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve used MoveableType (I think Blogger is based off this) so I can’t remember if you have to do anything special to rebuild the feed or if it is done whenever a post is updated.

    If you don’t have the option to rebuild the feed/indexes, try putting the claim code in a new post and see if that works.

  7. James: thank you so much for taking the time to look at that for me! Your suggestion fixed the problem–I added the claim code to the beginning of an existing post instead of the end, so it showed up in the feed. Finally the Bloglines verification process worked. As for the controls, just go back to “Publisher Tools” and click on edit for whichever feed you want to tinker with. I was able to add a feed description and image that way.

    Thanks again–and thanks for subscribing!

  8. Thanks Angie! I can edit the feed options now.
