Support » Fixing WordPress » Separate feeds with feedburner

  • Hi guys,

    I’ve looked for a while to a solution for this but I’ve yet to find one.

    My blog’s feed is syndicated by feedburner, we’ve recently started doing podcasts and we need a separate feed to add them to the itunes directory. Ive got podpress installed and it does show an option for having a separate feed for podcasts but it seems the feedburner plugin prevents this for working.

    So, how would I go about creating a separate feed for a podcast category and have it work parallel to the feedburner one.

    Thanks for any guidance you could give me.

  • Is this one going to go down into the ever-growing sea of unresolved topics?

    generally speaking the feed format is something like this: OR (for a category feed)

    So if your podcasts have their own category, just try grabbing the feed url for that category and create a new feed at Feedburner (in your account, you can multiple feeds) so it might look like this: OR – depending on your permalink structure…..

    Try just going to that category and copying the URL and then pasting it in at Feedburner

    I don’t know this answer. I would like to know too.

    After I got the FeedSmith plugin (redirects feeds to my Feedburner), I’m not sure if I have multiple feeds. I used to have a different feed for every category, every month, every author. Now I’m not really sure if they all direct to the same 1 feed? Is that what it does for you?

    Anyway, I did want to point out that I think you CAN send your whole site feed to iTunes. Only the posts with media like mp3 enclosure will appear as Podcasts to iTunes. Pretty sure they just ignore your other non-mp3 posts in your feed.

    Please re-read my answer

    Each category has a feed. Each monthly archive has a feed. Each daily archive has a feed.

    In most installations of WP, all you have to do is add “/feed” to the end of the url of the page (single post, comments, category, archive, etc) for which you want a feed.

    That is all you need to create a new feed in Feedburner, but you do need to log into Feedburner and “create” (add) the new feed if you want it to be separate from your main blog feed.

    Hi trisham, thanks for your help.

    I cant access a feed using the format you sugest. My site is at and my link structure is just as your example, however when i do it just 404’s

    Sure enough, I just confirmed that my Category feeds are still working with normal WordPress-lookin’ (non FeedBurner) RSS.

    Nahu, good luck. Maybe try refreshing your permalinks? (Re-save them).

    Apologies for bringing this up but hopefully this will help some. As you may know, after installing the FeedSmith plugin, your feed redirects to

    The funny thing is this though:

    Category feeds will NOT redirect, ex:

    But, author feeds will:

    Bizarre behaviour.
