This will put a lovely little footer at the bottom of your feed. You can use it with or without feedburner. I find that the feedburner built-in one isn't quite right and never displays comment count correctly.

This is what it looks like at the bottom of my feed:

(the e-mail link is a feedburner thing, just ignore it)

Now the default settings do not contain categories. They only contain tags. Dumb, right?

So here's the code I use in my footer:

Code:
<hr />
<p><small>© %%author_nickname%% for <a href="%%blogurl%%">%%blogname%%</a>, %%date[Y]%%. |
<a href="%%posturl%%">Permalink</a> |
<a href="%%posturl%%#comments">%%comments_text%%</a>
<br/>
Posted in: %%categorylinks%% | Post tags: %%taglinks%%<br/>
</small></p>


That will give you author name, blog name, date, permalink, comment count, tags, and categories.

Now, if you have something awesome like a static page that you want to check out, you can add that HTML to the footer easily. Gazimoff at Mana Obscura adds a link to his mage resources page... Your code would look something like this:

Code:
<hr />
<p><small>© %%author_nickname%% for <a href="%%blogurl%%">%%blogname%%</a>, %%date[Y]%%. |
<a href="%%posturl%%">Permalink</a> |
<a href="%%posturl%%#comments">%%comments_text%%</a>
<br/>
Posted in: %%categorylinks%% | Post tags: %%taglinks%%<br/>
Please check out my <a href="linkaddress">Pagename</a><br/>
</small></p>


Notice the extra line at the bottom that says to check out the page blah blah. You can change that to say "please vote in my poll" or whatever. It will appear at the bottom of every feed.

Snazzy!
