WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My company is currently developing a mobile application and is planning on feeding information into it via wordpress.com (due to financial constraints - not for profit organization), but we've run into a problem with the feed. The feeds on wordpress.com are XML and show up improperly in our app. Is there any way to convert this XML feed into an RSS 2.0 feed? I'm open to custom CSS designing on the wordpress site as well.

Thanks! Andrew

There is a built-in RSS 2.0 feed. Let's assume your blog is http://broodingthoughts.wordpress.com/. If you go to http://broodingthoughts.wordpress.com/feed/ you'll automatically be redirected to a RSS 2.0 feed of your blog. To confirm, look at the source. If it displays the following, like mine does, it's legit:

<rss version="2.0"
    xmlns:content="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/"
    xmlns:wfw="http://wellformedweb.org/CommentAPI/"
    xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
    xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"
    xmlns:sy="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/syndication/"
    xmlns:slash="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/slash/"
    xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss" xmlns:geo="http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/"

If you're still having issues with displaying the content, check your RSS feed reader.

On another note, there are plenty of ways to freely host your non-profit's wordpress website while using wordpress.org (Wordpress.com vs. Wordpress.org). I know because I run a self-hosted Wordpress website for a non-profit on a free server. Most hosts give you your own subdomain like wordpress.com. If you're interested let me know and I'll point you in the right direction.
