Advice re: featured-posts on feedburner (3 posts)

    Currently my site uses the feedburner plugin and generates a single feed. What I'd like to do is selectively include or exclude posts in the already existing feedburner feed. To turn it, in other words, into a "featured" posts feed. So there really are two parts to this question:

    1. What would people recommend as the best way to tag the content? Categories? Tags? A custom field? My inclination is a custom field, but I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on advantages/disadvantages of different approaches.
    2. Harder question. What code should I be hacking up to make the feed selective? The feedburner plugin? The core library? Really, it ought to be done as my own plugin, but if so, I wonder if anyone has advice on what action it should be triggering on.

    I appreciate your help.

    A plugin like this would be the best way:

    There's several plugins designed to exclude categories from various parts of the site, including RSS feeds.

    Thanks Otto, that was helpful. To seal the deal, I'm trying to ensure that users are "bound" to that category so that they cannot feature their own posts. There is a plugin,

    Bind User to Category

    But it seems to be nonfunctional with WP 2.5. Anyone have any alternatives?
