I want to create a custom rss feed

Template Name: Custom Feed

function filter_where($where = '') {
    //posts in the last 30 days
    $where .= " AND post_date > '" . date('Y-m-d', strtotime('-2 days')) . "'";
    return $where;
add_filter('posts_where', 'filter_where');
      'post_type' => 'post',
      'post_status' => 'publish',
      'showposts' => -1,
      'caller_get_posts'=> 1
$my_query=new WP_Query($args);
remove_filter('posts_where', 'filter_where');
header("Content-Type: application/rss+xml; charset=UTF-8");
echo '<?xml version="1.0"?>';
?><rss version="2.0">
  <description>The latest blog posts from #</description>
  if( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
    while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
    <title><?php the_title(); ?></title>
    <link><?php the_permalink() ?></link>
  } //if ($my_query)?>
<?PHP wp_reset_query(); //just in case

Now the final code for Custom Rss feed fetch from 48 hours. I can get right results from it.

Thanks for your help.

Never tested this ,but i believe you need to add WHERE clause to your query with time difference like so :

$timediff .= " AND post_date > '" . date('Y-m-d', strtotime('-2 days')) . "'";

you can find it also in the codex


If you do not want to use on query, but inside the loop, you could also do

<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

<?php $mylimit=15 * 86400; //days * seconds per day
$post_age = date('U') - get_post_time('U');
if ($post_age < $mylimit) { ?>

// your functions or display here 

<?php } ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
  • You give me right way but not complete function here is compete function Jan 9, 2012 at 7:38
