Adding my Del.icio.us feed to my Google Reader

I guess I’m trying to be too clever:

The Scenario

I added my Del.icio.us feed to my Google Reader account. Then selected a feed item and clicked Share.
Within Google Reader this works ok. I can click on the link and the corresponding URL opens.

So far so good. No problems.

But if I display the Google Reader RSS feed on an external website such as my blog, the feed adds my Del.icio.us URL to the article’s URL. Which in turn leads to a bad address.

404 - Page Not Found

Probably an unintended use…

(update) This is due to the Atom feed. The workaround is to use Feedburner.

  1. Planned to blog the solution to that, but had no time yet. Burn your feed with Feedburner.com and convert it to RSS (some settings there). Then use your Feedburner-Url for your widget. The WordPress RSS-Widget can’t display Atom-Feeds properly.
