6. Scroll down the page and see how the flare will look like in your RSS feed (hint: it’s the Add to NewPR link). If you have other flares enabled, you can change their order by drag-and-drop.

Now you can go to your blog’s Feedburner feed, and check to see if the flare is there. Here’s mine:

If you click on the Add to NewPR link in your feed, it should redirect you to the submit page on NewPR Crispynews, and title and URL of your entry should be there, too. (You’re not going to see a title if the title of your post is not in the blog’s entry title tag.)

Also, if you added the flare to your blog template, refresh your blog’s homepage and check if the flare is there.
