[resolved] Separate Feed for Category (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    I would like to make a separate feed for my podcasts category. I did a search and found that I should put into the feedburner one of these two things

    http://example.com/blog/category/podcasts/feed

    http://example.com/blog/category/podcasts/?feed=rss2

    However when I put either one of these into feedburner it tells me

    "We could not find a valid feed at that address."

    Any ideas on why I'm having this problem.

    Thanks
    Cynthia

    The first one is correct, if you have non-default permalinks enabled.

    Example:
    http://holistichelp.net/blog/category/natural-remedies/feed/

    Hi Otto,

    Yes, I had tried it that way already and it told me that it couldn't find a valid feed at that address. However your post made me look into something.

    I tried to burn a feed for the natural-remedies category and it worked fine. So I thought maybe it was because I had made a post already in this category and I hadn't made a post in the podcast category. So I made a post in the podcast category and went back to feedburner and tried again. And whalla it now works. So I guess that's what the problem is. Apparently you have to make a post in the category before Feedburner can find the feed. ( thought I'd share this just in case someone else has this problem in the future.)

    Thanks for you help.
    :)

    Cynthia
