I have two RSS feed on my Wordpress blog:

  1. mydomain.com/feed/
  2. mydomain.com/feed/anotherfeed/

Is it possible to set different items limits on these? I want to show 10 items for the first feed, but the second I want to show 30 items.

Thanks in advance


Sure, you can. First create the feed as per codex:

function anotherfeed_init(){
add_action('init', 'anotherfeed_init');

Now, change the post count for this particular feed:

function anotherfeed_post_count( $query ) {
    if( $query->is_main_query() && is_feed('anotherfeed') )
        $query->set( 'posts_per_rss', 30 );
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'anotherfeed_post_count' );

  • Where do you suggest I should place the anotherfeed_post_count function? (In which file) – user1878980 May 20 '16 at 10:49
  • Both go in functions.php – cjbj May 20 '16 at 10:56
  • Note that the first function will need a callback to achieve the kind of feed you want to display there. That's why I included the link to the codex. – cjbj May 20 '16 at 10:58
  • Maybe better add that to a custom plugin. Feeds should not be feed-dependent. – kaiser May 20 '16 at 11:16
  • @kaiser You mean theme dependent? That's true. – cjbj May 20 '16 at 11:35
