WordPress built in feeds – some help




For people who have built their sites on top of the WordPress platform (distinct from publishing on the WordPress.com site), getting the feed URL of the blog can be sometimes difficult. The default that I have employed is to use the wp-rss.php in the end, as for example, http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/, and http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/wp-rss.php. This works fine, but sometimes you will come up with a WordPress blog for which this system of generating a feed does not work. And then you are stuck, but don’t lose heart. There is a page on the WordPress Helpsite (link) that provides help in this regard. Here are some extracts from this page that should help:

There are times when you want to tell someone your site’s feed address or URL, or you need it to submit it to search engines and directories, many of which now accept feed URL submissions.

http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/wp-rss2.php
http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/wp-rdf.php
http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/wp-atom.php

If you are using custom permalinks, you should be able to reach them through this usage:

http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/feed/
http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/rss/
http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/rss2/
http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/rdf/
http://www.classicmoviesandbooks.com/atom/
