This is a 2.2.3 WordPress site that has been up for a couple of months. Current there are about 250 post.

This morning, I found out that the RSS feed did not validate and fixed it immediately.

Also, installed Feedburner.

QUESTION: Will Feedburner pickup the 250 previous post? Is there something that needs to be done so it will?

Feedburner reads your XML feed file. If all of the 250 posts are in that feed then Feedburner will show them. However, that sounds like an excessive number for your feed. An RSS feed is to show users newly updated content of your site. Who's going to read a 250 post feed?

Bill,

I wasn't actually thinking of all 250 post, but if all (or any) of the past post are picked up by Feedburner.

Your answer is helpful in that I now know only future post are displayed.
