In addition to the normal feed that wordpress produces, i need to publish an additional feed of posts that have a certain custom field value.

I'm a bit lost on where to start. Any tip?

  • Do you mean an rss feed? Or do you just want multiple 'loops' of posts on a page? Oct 15 '11 at 18:07
  • yes i meant an RSS feed. Thx

Something like this will add a /feed/special to your site.


function do_special_feed() {
    'meta_key' => 'key',
    'meta_value' => 'value',

After putting it in a plugin or your theme's functions.php or what have you, you'll need to visit the Settings->Permalinks page at least once and save the settings, to get it to rebuild the permalink rules.

  • interesting. In the meantime i implemented a technique seen on Yoast, which works, but is more of a hack than your suggestion. yoast.com/custom-rss-feeds-wordpress

  • Yeah, that method of the Page Template seems like a pretty weird hack when the ability to do this sort of thing easily is already built right in to WordPress. Creating custom feeds is easy.

  • I just tested this code. Any idea why after removing it from functions.php, the feed keeps available ?

  • Permalinks require a visit to the permalinks page to change. Also, check your caching plugins, if you have any.
