We were already talked about how to change feedburner address without losing subscribers. But while setting up Feedburner feeds for our account, due to incorrect setup of Feedburner feed box, many bloggers are getting errors about “The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled”. Here is the tutorial how you can fix this error from your subscribe box.

The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled

If you are creating a widget or subscribe box for your blog, and you have code for Feedburner subscribe box, you might have set up the Feedburner code incorrectly. You should look for the following line below and try to fix the same.


Here xyx is your Feedburner feed name, you should make sure that that xyz has been replaced with your Feedburner feed name or not. You can check it is correct or not by replacing “http://feeds.feedburner.com/xyz” xyz with your feedname.

The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled

Make sure that you have activated the FeedBurner subscription from the FeedBurner account. If you have not enabled a subscription from there, you can get it enabled from your FeedBurner account.

1. log in to your Feedburner account.

2. Go to Publicize > Email Subscription.

3. At the bottom, you will see an activate button, if you have not activated, activate it.

Now you can test your Feedburner widget setup. Your error “The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled” will no longer persist. If you are still facing any issues, feel free to comment below with your problem.

I was using Feedburner previously using Feedburner when Adsense for feeds was available & we could make money with Google AdSense for feeds. But Google AdSense has stopped it, so I use convertkit to send emails to my subscribers instead of Feedburner.
