Custom Field to RSS PHP (5 posts)

    I am hoping somebody can give me a little help with this one...

    I want to customize my RSS feed to include and item from a custom field that I am adding to each post.

    I see the formatting to get the item description and title, but was hoping someone could lead me to some info on using a custom field php statement to add to the current wp-rss.php (how to get custom field 1 and custom field 2, etc. if there were multiples).


    Thank you very much if you can help with this, it'll really help me.

    I'm having a similar problem. I want to customize my WordPress RSS feed so that if the post contains a custom field, the name of the custom field and its value appears in the feed for that post.

    To give a specific example, some of my posts will have the custom field, "Rednote", and its value could either be "Date Corrected" or "Newly Added". I would like the RSS feed to display <Rednote>Newly Added</Rednote> OR <customfield>Rednote: Newly Added</customfield> for that post.

    It doesn't look like any plugin exists to do exactly that. I have PHP experience, so I'm not afraid to dive in and modify some configuration files. I just need to be pointed in the right direction in terms of files I should be looking at and strategies I should be considering.

    Thanks for your help.

    I 3rd the motion.

    I also need to be able to add data from a custom field to my feed.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    This plugin is exactly what you need. If you are using WordPress 2.1, though, you will need to change line 42 & 42 from

    if($post_meta_cache[$wp_query->post->ID]) {
         foreach(get_post_custom_keys() as $key) {


    if ( $keys = get_post_custom_keys() ) {
         foreach($keys as $key) {

    (The $post_meta_cache array is no longer used in 2.1.)

    Thank you!

    That plugin and new lines of code worked perfectly for me. I'm using the Get Custom Field Values plugin (c2c_get_custom) and was pulling my hair out trying to get my custom field into the feeds.

    You're a life saver!
