By Andy Theimer | September 29, 2020

WordPress makes an RSS feed for just about anything on your website. WordPress RSS feeds allow you to streamline the creation and automation of content email campaigns. Here, we’ll show you how to find many different WordPress RSS feeds for your website.

WordPress RSS Feeds for Categories

One Category Feed

Here’s what the WordPress RSS feed URL will typically look like for finding content in one specific category.

http://www.example.com/category/categoryname/feed

For example, if you were looking for FeedOtter’s blog content in the category best practices, the RSS feed would look like this.

https://www.feedotter.com/blog/category/best-practices/feed

One of Multiple Category RSS Feeds

You can also combine multiple categories and see content from more than one category.

http://www.example.com/category/cat1,cat2/feed

OR

http://www.example.com/?cat=42,43&feed=rss2

For example, if you were wanting FeedOtter’s blog content for the categories best practices and how to, it would look like this.

https://www.feedotter.com/blog/category/best-practices,how-to/feed

Posts Associated with All RSS Feed Categories

If you were wanting only the content that falls in all the categories listed, your WordPress RSS feed will look like this.

http://www.example.com/category/cat1/category/cat2/feed

So, if you were only wanting the content that fell under best practices and how to, this is the RSS feed URL.

WordPress RSS Feeds for Tags

Not only can you find specific category RSS feeds, you can also find your WordPress RSS feed for specific tags on your content.

One Tag Feed

Here’s what the feed URL will look like for one specific tag.

http://www.example.com/tag/tagname/feed

For example, looking for our content tagged Pardot?

https://www.feedotter.com/blog/tag/pardot/feed/

One of Multiple Tag Feeds

If you’re looking for content from one of multiple tags, use this URL.

http://www.example.com/?tag=tag1,tag2&feed=rss2

So, if you were looking for content with a pardot or automation, try this.

https://www.feedotter.com/blog/?tag=pardot,automation&feed=rss2

Posts Associated with All Tags Feed

Or, if you were wanting content with both tags:

http://www.example.com/tag/tag1/tag/tag2/feed

For example:

https://www.feedotter.com/blog/tag/pardot/tag/automation/feed

WordPress RSS Feeds for Tags and Categories

Combining Category and Tag for your RSS feed

You can also find content by the RSS feed that falls into a specific category and has specific tags like so:

http://www.example.com/category/categoryname/tag/tagname/feed

For example, if you’re wanting FeedOtter’s b2b resources category with the tag Pardot you would use:

https://www.feedotter.com/blog/category/b2b-resources/tag/pardot/feed

WordPress RSS Feeds for Custom Post Types

If you have custom post types that you are wanting to single out in your RSS feed, you can use this url.

http://www.example.com/feed/?post_type=<your custom post type name>
