When you submit your feeds to google webmaster tools sitemap, it adds only 25 posts to the sitemap. Suppose i want to add all my posts to sitemap i have to give http://funlounge.blogspot.com/atom.xml?orderby=updated&max-results=1000 but if i have feedburner enabled it redirects to the feedburner page which still gives 25 posts only. Due to this i couldnt include all my posts in sitemap.

Solution: To solve this you have to remove the current rss feed link in your blog and add feedburner link. Next you have to add the link i have given below to your sitemap to solve. I have given below step by step how to do this.

Step 1: Go to Dashboard -->Setings>Site Feed. 
Clear the text in Post Feed Redirect Url and make sure it is empty.
 
Step 2: Go to Dashboard-->Template-->Edit HTML
 
Step 3: Click the 'Expand Widgets Templates' box.

Step 4:
Find:
<b:includable id='feedLinks'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'> <!-- Blog feed links -->
<b:if cond='data:feedLinks'>
<div class='blog-feeds'>
<b:include data='feedLinks' name='feedLinksBody'/>
</div>
</b:if>
 
Step 5:
Comment and enter your feedburner rss feed in between div like http://feeds.feedburner.com/Funlounge
<!--      <div class='blog-feeds'>
<b:include data='feedLinks' name='feedLinksBody'/>
</div>
-->
<div class='blog-feeds'>

</div>
 
Step 6:
Go to Webmaster Tools --> Dashboard -->Your Site -->Sitemap -->Add Sitemap -->Choose Type --> Add General Web Sitemap -->Enter in My Sitemap Url is textbox the following atom.xml?orderby=updated&max-results=1000 and press Add General Web Sitemap button.

Please Comment the code given in step 5 in your blog.

Comment your code as i have commented below
<!-- <div class='blog-feeds'>
<b:include data='feedLinks' name='feedLinksBody'/>
</div>
-->

And then add the following. Instead of FunLounge Rss Feedburner path give yours.

<div class='blog-feeds'>
<a href='http://feeds.feedburner.com/Funlounge' >Rss</a>
</div>

if you still cant understand please tell i will explain.
