How do I list RSS links beside my displayed categories (5 posts)

    Trying with wp_list_cats using feed_img= or just feed=
    Want to offer rss subscription to specific categories instead of all.

    Is this possible?
    Thanks in advance!

    Well I did it with out the wp_list_cats. I still don't get the way that works yet and I may go back and do it that way but...

    $link = '<ahref="'.get_category_link($category->cat_ID).'" ';
    $rss = '<a href="'.get_category_link($category->cat_ID).'&feed=rss2" ';
    if ( $use_desc_for_title == 0 || empty($category->category_description) )
    $link .= 'title="'. sprintf(__("View all posts filed under %s"), wp_specialchars($category->cat_name)) . '"';
    $link .= 'title="' . wp_specialchars(apply_filters('category_description',$category->category_description,$category)) . '"';
    $link .= '>';
    $link .= apply_filters('list_cats', $category->cat_name, $category).'</a> ';
    $rss .= 'title="' . wp_specialchars(apply_filters('category_description',$category->category_description,$category)) . '"';
    $rss .= '>';
    $rss .= '<img src="http://mouseclone.com/blog/rss-icon/rss-12x12.gif"></a>';
    $link .= $rss;

    I used $rss to create mine and just copies a few bits of code and then joined the $rss to the end of $link with $link .= $rss

    Hope this helps some. maybe i will do it right next time. or maybe not right just what is given to me.

    and edit the wp-includes/template-functions-category.php file.

    visit website for a look see.

    That's way over-complicated compared to the solution offered in the Codex at the link above (and you don't have to touch any core files...)

    <?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&optioncount=0&feed=RSS'); ?>

    so where would you use the wp_list_cats?? in the sidebar php from the themes directory? never mind just read some more... guess it helps to read.
