WordPress Category Feeds!

Locating the URL for your category feeds is not always the easiest thing to do with WordPress. TangognaT points out that it’s as simple as adding a ?cat=# of category to the base url for any wordpress feed. So if you wanted to display the RSS feed for category 3, the feed URL would be http://www.yourwebsiteurl.com/wp-rss2.php?cat=3. You can also use wp-atom.php?cat=3.

    Or, if you’re using nice permalinks in WP 1.5 (currently in beta), just append “/feed/rss2″ to your category URI, like so:

    In 1.5, any WP query can be turned into a feed by appending feed=rss2 (or feed=atom, etc.). Ex:

    If you are using permalinks, append /feed/rss2 or /feed/atom to any permalink. Ex:
