WordPress and Category RSS Feeds
- 6 Comment
So, you like a certain site, but you don’t like all the posts in all of the categories that the writer writes in, some of the topics just don’t interest you or you are only interested in one of the topics.
Well, did you know that for WordPress sites there is an RSS solution that will save you scanning through all those feeds your not interested in?? It is simple, use the category feed instead of the main site feed.
You can subscribe to the category feed, by simply go to the category page that you wish to subscribe too.
For an example the “blogging” category here at Blog About Your Blog is at this URL: http://blogaboutyourblog.com/category/blogging/
You will know it is a category page because the word category is in the URL itself. This is a default URL from WordPress and I don’t think there are very many bloggers that change this default as it is a good one. You can find the category pages on a lot of sidebars and on most sites somewhere next to where you click to leave comments.
You then just simply at the word “feed” with a backslash(/) to that category page, so the example blogging category feed is located at: http://blogaboutyourblog.com/category/blogging/feed/
You go to that page and it will allow you to subscribe to only the feeds of that category and you will no longer need to sort your RSS feeder of the stuff you aren’t interested in.
