WordPress blogs are categorised using a number of different categories based on the subjects of the posts that are published on that blog.

Some readers visit your blog to view (or browse through) all the content, but some others simply target one of those categories, and there’s a way to cater for them with an RSS feed too.

rss-category

Rather than using an RSS feed that displays ALL the content on a blog, this very, very easy trick will allow you to create an RSS feed just for the category of your choice.

The Fix

This is probably the easiest fix you will ever come across:

  1. Let’s say you only want to subscribe to WP Mayor’s Plugin Reviews. The URL for this category would be as follows: http://www.wpmayor.com/category/plugin-reviews
  2. Now, to get the RSS feed for this category, all you have to do is add the text /feed to the end of that URL: http://www.wpmayor.com/category/plugin-reviews/feed/
  3. This will provide you with the RSS feed for WP Mayor’s Plugin Reviews category.

How It Works

There isn’t much to explain here. This is simply the way to locate the RSS feed for a WordPress blog’s particular category.
