Custom Fields RSS


This plugin helps you making arbitrary custom fields show up in the RSS feed of your blog.

Your custom fields will appear as XML elements then,
whereas a custom field’s name will make the text node’s name or tag name in the RSS-XML
and the value of that custom field goes in between its opening and the closing tag.


If you add a custom field to your post
named ‘region’
filled with a text value ‘Germany (Cologne)’
this will autmatically add an extra output to your standard RSS-XML like

<region>Germany (Cologne)</region>

within the node of the appropriate item or post it has been added to.

Arbitrary section


  • Add a custom field to your post. Choose an arbitrary name, don't use special characters and no spaces.

  • Your custom fields will appear in the post's RSS-XML.


  1. Upload custom-fields-rss.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


What if there are multiple custom fields of the same name?

Every entry will be added to the RSS XML as a new element.

What if I use spaces or irregular characters for my fields’ names ?

Spaces in custom fields’ names are not allowed.
The Plugin will make no changes to the characters given.

I added the plugin and immediately my custom fields appear properly in my RSS feed. I was trying to code this manually for hours and just couldn't get it right. Thank you!
