Support » Fixing WordPress » RSS feeds – move to a new new URL

  • I have created a website using wordpress which is password protected to open university students. However, this means they cannot subscribe to the RSS feed which by nature is also password protected.

    I wonder if it is possible to move the rss feed to another directory which is not password protected so that students can subscribe to it from there?

    Since WP auto-generates the rss, i kinda doubt it will be possible, but you never know.

    Any ideas?

    you can sure try:

    Move the files to the new location and edit the path inside the files so that they correctly point to your wp-config:

    if (empty($wp)) {
    	require_once('wp-config.php'); <---
    	wp('feed=rss2');
    }

    The above path assumes they are in the same directory.
    It might work, it might not, but you wont know til you try.

    What a great idea. I shall try that and see what happens!
