I’ve watched the video to implement this Gadget and I’ve added it in my test and full blogs, not knowing it would not work. 

So, now I have family trying to join our site: but it is not working. 

When I add my email address, Feedburner creates the response screen and I complete the steps.  Then the subscription email is sent to my inbox by Feedburner and I activate the subscription.  But, Feedburner is not updated from 0 to 1 subscribers and an email is not generated and sent to my inbox when the blog is updated with a new post.

My question is where do I start looking to see what I missed?   I’ve done this twice and will redo again, but wanted some input from anyone that has this working and if I just worked as described in the video (linked above) or if more configuration was needed. 

Thanks, BertConfused

As of Noon today, the email was generated to my test accounts and looks great!  Sorry for the interruption 🙂

Thanks for the follow up Bert. Glad to hear it’s working.

Yes, I tested it on my blog and I did get the email, it was 3-4 hours after the post. I think the system just checks once each day to see if there is anything new.
