RSS feed just for blog, not for other pages (7 posts)

    Hello,

    I've just set up a website: http://www.jobswithapurpose.com using WordPress and a premium theme (JobRoller).

    I have a blog under http://www.jobswithapurpose.com/blog. I would like to create an RSS feed just for blog posts, not for jobs or anything else that will also be posted on the website! And I can't seem to do that... When I try to locate an RSS feed, it only finds http://www.jobswithapurpose.com/feed, which is the general feed that includes posts but also jobs... You can see that when you click on it, you get "Test blog post" but also "Test new job" - I created those for testing.

    At http://www.jobswithapurpose.com/blog/feed, it doesn't find any feed...

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks so much in advance!

    Thanks for the reply. I read the article, but am afraid I'm not expert enough for this to help me...

    I've tried a custom URL like suggested there - http://jobswithapurpose.com/blog/?feed=rss2 - this didn't help, the feed I got was still for blog posts AND jobs. I'm not sure what else I can do.

    Now try reviewing the section on category and tag feeds.

    I'm sorry, but I still don't get it... I want *all* categories and *all* tags to be included in the RSS, I just don't want other types of information except blog posts - so no job postings.

    Do you mean I should create some complicated address which excludes all possible types of postings (new job, new resume, new company etc.) in the way as is described there on how to exclude certain categories? This sounds like a long workaround, and I'm also not sure I know all possible types of postings...

    Unless you identify - either by category or tag - which posts are "job listings", then WordPress can't list just those posts for you. It's good but it's not psychic. ;-)

    That's really a pity ;)

    Well, I think we're getting to the core of the problem. The theme actually has an RSS feed automatically included in the front page *just for job listings* - it is http://www.jobswithapurpose.com/feed/?post_type=job_listing. Now I want the same *just for blog posts*, but I don't know what the equivalent is of post_type=job_listing for blog posts. I've tried post_type=blog_post and post_type=post, but it didn't work. I'm not sure how to find out what that is.

    Thanks a lot for sticking with me and helping me figure it out!
