Account moves unavailable to some publishers

Thursday, February 19, 2009 | 1:22 PM

Issue: You have received an email from FeedBurner that instructs you to move your to a Google Account. However, when you sign in to, you are not prompted to take any action. Possible causes:

  • One or more of your FeedBurner feeds use Yahoo! Pipes feeds as their content source. Currently, feeds hosted on Google do not work reliably with Pipes, but feeds still hosted in the original environment do. We are still working directly with Yahoo! to resolve this issue permanently.

  • We may have detected that one of your feeds conflicts with a feed address in the Google-hosted system. We will be contacting you directly about this conflict and our resolution for it.
Workaround: Not quite yet. FeedBurner is working to resolve these account move scenarios as quickly as possible; Unless you are unable to move your account because of an address conflict, we will automatically restore the account move feature as soon as possible. We will update this blog post when the Yahoo! Pipes issue is resolved. Our apologies for this temporary inconvenience.
