  • Can anyone direct me to info. on how to create an RSS feed with my WordPress blog.

    I know how to create an RSS feed…but I am trying to understand if WordPress will automatically update my feed…

    Ie I make a new post in my blog…so what is the next step so this post is added to my feed?

    It’s made by wp, and updated by wp.

    Look at the bottom of your menu.

    WordPress makes an rss feed automatically

    Ok I understand.

    So I will have my readers add:

    to their news feed?

    Is there a way to control how many posts are in each feed?

    Ie if I have 30 posts a month, I don’t want all 30 showing up in the feed.


    In the admin panel under Options under Reading, there are 2 options for “Syndication Feeds”
    Option 1 is “Show the most recent posts” and allows you to set the number of posts to appear in your feed.
    Option 2 is “For each article, show” and allows you to choose whether the feed has the full text of your posts or just a summary.

    I’m using 1.5-gamma 2005-02-12 for my notebooks, which I just today ‘upgraded’ from MT to Word Press (have been using Word Press for my regular blog for quite a while).

    Now while does display 10 posts in the feed, as indicated in the admin panel, I have a problem with my notebooks, as the feed is only displaying 1 single post, e.g.

    As for the posts themselves, on my blog I show 5 posts on the frontpage, on the notebooks only 1. Feeds are however both set to 10.

    One more thing, for my blog I’m using 1.5-beta-1 2005-01-28.

    Anyone any idea as to why the feed for my notebooks is showing only 1 single entry?

    If I change the number of posts to be shown on the frontpage of that notebook, I get more items in my feed. This is NOT something I would want to do though. Anyone any idea as to how I can make the feed behave as expected?

    Check Options/Reading. What do you have set for Syndication Feeds/Show the most recent:?

    As I thought I explained clearly, I had that set to 10 posts. ‘Syndication feeds, Show the most recent 10 posts, For each article, show Full text’.

    Now, when I have set ‘Blog pages, Show at most’ to 1 post, I only have 1 post in my feed as well. Do I temporarily change ‘Blog pages, Show at most’ to 10 posts, there are more posts in my feed as well, diappearing as soon as I put it back to 1 post (on the blog, that is, number of entries in the feed, always on 10).

    Sounds a tad buggy, no?

    Just in case, I’ve submitted this to the bugtracker:

    I would like to post rss feeds on pages I create. With the include php. I have found plugin that enables me to do this. But it displays the rss feed below the sidebar in the body instead of next to it. How can I fix this to dispay correctly. Example:
