RSS Includes Pages

Description

Modifies RSS feeds so that they include pages and not just posts. Deactivating the plugin restores RSS feeds to their default state.

Including pages in your feed is particularly useful if you’re using WordPress as a CMS where pages represent a good portion of your content.

The pro version (less than $10) also allows you to:

  1. Specify that ONLY pages are included in the feeds i.e. no posts.
  2. Exclude/include posts and pages by ID.
  3. Add custom post types such as WooCommerce products or Avada portfolios.

Screenshots

  • By default the plugin adds pages to your existing feeds. In the pro version you can specify posts and/or pages. You can also excludes posts/pages by ID.

Installation

  1. Upload the rss-includes-feeds folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. The free version doesn’t have any settings you can change. Pages will be included by default.

Installation Instructions

Will this plugin work with other RSS feed related plugins?

Yes. The modifications to the feed are done at a low level and other plugins should remain compatible.

I just activated the plugin, why don’t I see pages in my feed?

If you’re using Feedburner you’ll have to wait until your updated feed is picked up by Feedburner. This isn’t immediate so give it a few hours. Also, WordPress caches feeds and doesn’t rebuild it on the fly.

Does this plugin create new feeds?

No. The plugin adds pages and custom post types to existing feeds. No new feeds are created; existing ones are modified.

I sure do! My complete collection includes:

Doesnt work for me

hello, Im using the Envision theme – none of the pages show up in the feed after installation, so unfortunately doesnt seem to work for every theme. Pity, hope developer can offer this for other themes, thanks.

Adds Pages To Feeds Just Like It Says

Some people say this plugin is useless, but they don’t seem to be reading the description. If you want pages to be added to your existing feeds, this plugin will do that. No settings or configuration. Just activate and go.

Some additional features are in the pro version, but 30,000+ users find the free version useful enough to keep it active. You can’t argue with the numbers! 🙂

Seems to work as advertised

This is a very useful plugin. It fills yet another gap where the core WordPress folks make a distinction between posts and pages but nobody else does!

Installed without errors, works as advertised. I find the free version most useful.

Thanks.

Completely useless

Completely useless plugin. Only includes posts and pages into the RSS feed. For custom post types you have to pay $10. If you plan to make money with your plugins, please say so in the description so people don’t waste their time.
