Multiple feed solution? (11 posts)

    Is there any way to create multiple feeds for your blog? I haven't found a WP plug-in that does this, though perhaps I just missed it.

    What I would like to do is create feeds for certain categories and authors on the blog.

    wordpress does this by default. Say you have 2 authors (me and you) and 3 categories (one, two and three)

    http://yoursite.com/author/me/feed
    http://yoursite.com/author/you/feed

    http://yoursite.com/category/one/feed
    http://yoursite.com/category/two/feed
    http://yoursite.com/category/three/feed

    Is that what you mean?

    Hi Trent!
    What do you mean "wordpress does this by default." ?
    Im looking for a solution for this aswell..
    I would like to have different feeds for all of my categories.
    Do you know how to accomplish this?

    Maybe reading the documentation will help:
    WordPress_Feeds

    Ok, I´ve read it now.
    Tried to add:

    < li >
    < a >" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('RSS'); ?>
    < /li >
    but it didn´t help.
    Any suggestions?

    I don't know where did you get that code from... It does nothing.

    I got the code from http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Feeds
    and "Adding Feeds".

    Ok. I tried this:
    http://yoursite.com/category/one/feed
    The first time it shows XML-code. But when I hit the refresh-button it asks for google reader as it should.

    This happens all the time. First the XML-code. And then it works.
    Do you know why?

    The first time it shows XML-code.

    If you try to see it in a browser - yes. It will show the XML code. Feeds are not for looking at them, they are not for human eyes; were made for machines.

    But that´s strange. Because when I hit
    http://www.blog.se/feed/ (the standard feed, or what shall we call it?) anyway.. in this case there´s no XML code showing up. Im getting the "google reader-page" at the first time. I dont have to hit refresh like I do with the others.

    Do you know why?

    No, because that link doesn't work.

    but that wasen´t the real link.. that was just an example.

    But.. I think I know why now. The XMLcode doesn´t show up when i put "feed:" before the adress.

    Sry for all of this newbie questions, and thanx for your help!
