Can I create an RSS feed just for the blog portion of my site? (9 posts)

    Wanting to add our RSS feed to mailchimp so our subscribers get email each time we publish a new post. However, currently our feed on the new site is showing all website content. Is there a way to create a feed just for the blog portion of our site??

    I am under the assumption your site configured to is using the static "home" and you have a "blog" page that your posts fall under, right?

    If so, you should be able to access this URL to see your RSS feed:

    http://[yourdomainhere.com]/blog/feed/

    WordPress will, by default, provide RSS feeds on the site index, the blog index, categories, comments, search, tags and authors.

    and I get an error message when I try the feed here: http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fcorp.lingospot.com%2Fblog%2Ffeed+

    Server returned HTTP Error 404: Not Found [help]

    Sorry

    An error occurred while trying to validate this feed.
    Possible causes:
    The address may be incorrect. Make sure the address is spelled correctly. Try loading the feed directly in your browser to make sure a feed exists at that address.
    The feed may be temporarily unavailable. The server may be down, or too slow. Try again later.
    The validator may be busted. If the feed exists, the server is fine, and the problem is reproducible, let us know on the feedvalidator-users mailing list.

    Joe is correct. Your feed is here, http://charissagrandin.com/blog/feed/ but there are no posts showing and it is set-up as comments.

    Your theme is a commercial theme and you will find support for it through http://support.envato.com/

    Sorry, this is for a work site... I'm looking for the feed for http://corp.lingospot.com/blog/feed

    I poked around but couldn't find it. The support for that theme is at http://support.envato.com/

    We only support themes from http://wordpress.org/themes/ as we have no access to commercial themes.

    Ah, okay, so this is definitely a theme-related issue? I will contact their support. Also have WPEngine looking into it for us too.

    Thank you so much for your help!
