[resolved] trying to rewrite custom rss feed URL (7 posts)

    I've created a new custom rss feed file (mycustomfeed.php) which is accessible at http://www.myblog.com/?feed=mycustomfeed. I've searched the forums for help trying to rewrite the URL, and found a link to the following bit of code from http://www.seodenver.com/custom-rss-feed-in-wordpress/

    This piece of code will allow you to have any feed name, and dynamically "create" /customfeed.xml as well as a /feed/customfeed/ versions:

    function custom_feed_rewrite($wp_rewrite) {
    $feed_rules = array(
    'feed/(.+)' => 'index.php?feed=' . $wp_rewrite->preg_index(1),
    '(.+).xml' => 'index.php?feed='. $wp_rewrite->preg_index(1)
    $wp_rewrite->rules = $feed_rules + $wp_rewrite->rules;
    add_filter('generate_rewrite_rules', 'custom_feed_rewrite');

    So, I added the code to my functions.php file, but I'm not having any luck accessing the feed at http://www.myblog.com/mycustomfeed.xml or http://www.myblog.com/feed/mycustomfeed

    Is there something incorrect in the bit of code that I copied, or am I missing something in the code that I need to customize? Or, perhaps, is there a better/easier way for me to do a rewrite so that I can access my custom feed at /mycustomfeed.xml and/or /feed/mycustomfeed ?

    This works for me

    add_action('init', 'my_add_feed');
    function my_rewrite_rules( $wp_rewrite ) {
      $new_rules = array(
        'feed/(.+)' => 'index.php?feed='.$wp_rewrite->preg_index(1)
      $wp_rewrite->rules = $new_rules + $wp_rewrite->rules;
    function my_add_feed(  ) {
      global $wp_rewrite;
      add_feed('custom-feed', 'my_create_feed');
      add_action('generate_rewrite_rules', 'my_rewrite_rules');

    where /feed/custom-feed/ would be the "pretty" permalink

    I should add that my_create_feed is the function that actually, well, creates the feed content.

    Thanks, miklb! This works perfectly for the rewrite. I appreciate the help...would've never figured this out on my own.

    I want to take this RSS feed http://www.rssweather.com/zipcode/30096/rss.php , or something like it,
    and recreate it using the zipcode from the user profile field %field_9 field_zip-code alt"%

    But, I can't get it to work. I want the weather to show up in a bottom widget area unique to the users zipcode field from their profile in Buddypress.

    Anyone know how I can do this?

    I think it is failing to pull the user's zipcode field setting because the RSS feed is from weather.com and not my domain.

    Any ideas?
