Feed Facebook, Leave Facebook


Generates a separate partial feed for Facebook. Use it to direct Facebook visitors to your blog while leaving your main full-text feed intact.

If you’re a Facebook user and you’re unhappy with the way it handles your feed, use this plugin to generate a special excerpts only version for Facebook.
It will also add a link to your blog post beneath the excerpt in case visitors miss the ‘View original post’ link Facebook provides.

The easiest way to install the plugin is to use the plugin installer in WordPress.

If you want to do it manually:

  1. Upload the feed-facebook-leave-facebook directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Once activated, access your feed with the querystring ?feedfacebook appended to the end.
This is usually http://[your blog address]/feed/?feedfacebook


Will the feed break if I disable the plugin?

No. It will simply revert to the standard WP-supplied feed.
