Change the Number of Posts Displayed in Feedburner Feed

Your Blog RSS Feed by default displays the latest 25 posts.This is true with the default Blogger feed and the Feedburner feed. Most blogs are using the Feedburner feed provided by Google and if you don't you should (How To Get A Feedburner Feed). You can change the number of posts displayed on your feed page to any number of posts you like and in this post I will show you how it's done.

Follow the following steps:

Step 1. Go to Feedburner and log into your account. On your My Feeds page click on the feed you want to edit.

Step 2. At the top of the page click 'Edit Feed Details' to open the options - Feed Title, Original Feed, Feed Address - See Image Below.

Step 3. Your Original Feed will look like this :

http://YourBlog.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
(YourBlog will be your blogs address)
Simply add the snippet of code to the end of your Original Feed like below:
http://YourBlog.com/feeds/posts/default?max-results=10

You can change the max-results=10 to anything from 1 to 500.
Step 4. Click save feed details.

Important: Make sure to only add the code as shown and not change anything else.If you think you may have made a mistake don't save but go back to step 1 and start again.
