    Hi,
    I wanted to provide a way for my users to subscribe to RSS Feeds matching particular search items only. However the usual <b>?s=</b> doesn't work. In fact it just returns the front page with results matching the search.
    Similarly I want to provide a way for my users to subscribe to RSS Feeds matching a particular category only. Again the usual idea doesn't seem to work.
    Is it something already available? My search didn't yeild any results.
    Please let me know if that is so.
    Otherwise please consider them as feature requests.
    Is there any timeline already decided for these features?
    Thanks,
    Angsuman

    Not sure of the uses for a syndicated search, but it goes:

    /wp-rss2.php?s=wombat

    'wombat' being the search term.

    Note that a search with no results will generate an empty feed (that is, a feed with no posts), but a search producing just one result/post will bump you to the actual page.
