Feedburner’s Error Message: The Feed Does Not Have Subscriptions by Email Enabled, How to Solve It


You will likely receive this error message if you tried to edit an email subscription form that came with your custom blogger template. It is mainly due to the fact that you supplied a wrong value or a wrong feed URL while editing the email subscription form.

This post will help you to fix this problem so you don’t have to worry. In order to fix this error and make it possible for your readers to subscribe to your feed, you will need to do these:

1. Go to your FeedBurner dashboard and check if you have activated “Email Subscription”. If you didn’t activate it, then click on “Publicize” from the menu bar and select “Email Subscriptions” (see image below).



2. Scroll down to the bottom of the dashboard and activate your email subscriptions.

Another reason which you may have received “The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled” error message from FeedBurner is that maybe you made a mistake by not making your “value” and feed URL the same. This is what I mean.

Below is a typical FeedBurner subscription form code

<form style="border:1px solid #ccc;padding:3px;text-align:center;" action="https://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="window.open('https://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=bloggingcrib', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return true"><p>Enter your email address:</p><p><input type="text" style="width:140px" name="email"/></p><input type="hidden" value="bloggingcrib" name="uri"/><input type="hidden" name="loc" value="en_US"/><input type="submit" value="Subscribe" /><p>Delivered by <a href="https://feedburner.google.com" target="_blank">FeedBurner</a></p></form>
To solve your problem, quickly check your template through your edit HTML for a code similar to the one stated below (to make it easier to find, just look for any word or phrase present in your email subscription form and search for it in your template. For example, if your subscription forms’s title is “Join our newsletter”, then copy it and paste in your search box).

When you get to the subscription form section, look for a code similar to this http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=”your feed url here”
Where you have “your feed URL here” is where you should add your feed URL

Then also look for this line of code

<input type="hidden" value="your feed url here" name="uri"/>

Now, make sure that you place your feed URL where you have value. In order to confirm the value, you can try generating a subscription box from your FeedBurner dashboard and check for the stated line of code for the value. Make sure that you enclose them with quotation marks as shown in your code.

Hopefully, this should be able to solve the problem for you. If you have a question, drop it in the comment section
