    I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere, but I discovered that WP can create RSS and ATOM feeds based on categories. To do so, simply add ?cat=cat# to the end of the feed URI. Nice!
    This is a feature I have been using with my NucleusCMS-based weblog to feed specific categories to static web pages. Great to see I'll be able to do the same in WP.
    BTW: WP's method of doign this is much easier than how I had to set it up in NucleusCMS. In NucleusCMS, you need to modify templates and skins, plus create a separate .php file on the server for each category feed.

    In 1.2, you can do this if you use permalinks:
    /archives/category/category-name/rss2/
    /archives/category/category-name/atom/
    /archives/author/author-name/rss2/
    /archives/author/author-name/atom/
    /archives/2004/04/22/my-post-about-stuff/rss2/
    /archives/2004/04/22/my-post-about-stuff/atom/
    /feed/rss2/
    /comments/feed/rss2/
    wp-feed.php, wp-rss2.php, and the other feed files can perform the same queries that index.php can. So, any WP query can be served up as a feed.

    Any way to get the category name in the category's feed name so if people subscribe to multiple category feeds from you they don't have multiple feeds in their aggregator that are just "blog title"?

    Is there a way to view rss for just one post?

    EG. something like this: ?post=3
