[resolved] Filter Tumblr feed by author? (3 posts)

    Is it possible to filter the RSS King Pro feed from Tumblr by author? We allow others to post on the Tumblr site but do not want to pull those feeds into the website; the website feed should only show posts uploaded by the Tumblr admin author.

    I'm hoping there's a shortcode or other way to do this without writing a PHP function (beyond my skill set).

    Hi Jmek,

    Out of the box, what you want would require something rather specific. Do you have the URL your looking to feed in and I'll see if I can work some functionality into the shortcode to allow you to do this?

    This thread was continued via email and for those looking for similar answers, this is how it ended up:

    RSS King Pro, with some slight tweaks that I am looking to release in the next update, can certainly do what is required however it is very limited to what the RSS feed actually returns. In this case, Tumblr doesn't actually return an author field to be able to filter by as it is embedded in the contents of each item.

    Each individual feed COULD potentially be filtered using a preg_match and searching for the particular author in the feed, however that is a case by case scenario due to it being depending on the feed and the author name your looking for, which obviously can't be added to the plugin as a blanket solution.
