Feedburner – Tips to add latest post’s title as Subject of email

Advertisement:

Most awaited feature of feedburner is now live(without any official word!).
How it feels to see 10 to 20 emails with the same subject line/title and from the same person? Even if the content of the mail is different we get irritated to open it and read. Many times, when we are busy and want to clean/process the inbox, we just delete such mails.

Feedburner used to send a static subject line with all the email updates. But now they have added a feature, using which we can customize the email Subject line and make it more meaningful.

Use ${latestItemTitle} to insert your latest post’s title into the Subject/Title of email.

If we have multiple blog posts?
With two or more items in the update, ${n} shows the total number of items, and ${m} shows the number of items beyond the latest.

Examples
Technotip.org: ${latestItemTitle}
Technotip.org: “${latestItemTitle}” plus ${m} more
Technotip.org (in this message: ${n} new items)

A number of sub-menu items will be shown, among them, click on “Email Branding” link. Now you can follow the above tips to customize the email title/subject line. Actually those tips are given by feedburner on the customization page itself.

    Helpful and I just did it,but I can’t find the way to change the name of the FROM line (it seems to be taking it from my WP ‘title’ line which is a short version positioned for the graphic in the header, and isn’t the whole name of the blog.)

    Any help on that one? I promise, I’ve looked everywhere (but you surely know more everywheres than I do — ha!)

    Thanks!
