Hi! Today we are going to show you how to create and display RSS feeds in WordPress.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication – a web feed format for publishing frequent updates of site content such as news, blog posts, etc.
Publishers benefit from RSS feeds because this lets them syndicate their site content automatically. Readers benefit from web feeds by getting timely updates when something new is posted on their favorite websites.
There are a lot of different ways of including RSS to your WordPress, but we will check the easiest and fastest ones:
- Log into your WordPress admin area and go to Widgets in the Appearance section.
- Add the RSS widget by pulling it to the correct widget area.
- On the right in the Current Widgets section click Edit button under RSS widget:
- Click Done and then Save Changes to publish the RSS feed on your web-site.
Also you can make it visible on the pages needed, using the visibility button.
Not all WordPress Themes feature all of the RSS Feed types that are available in WordPress. To add a feed to your site, find the location of where the other feeds are, typically in your sidebar.php, footer.php or header.php theme files. Then add one of the tags listed above to the list, like this example:
<ul class="feeds"> <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('<abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li> /><li><a href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using Atom'); ?>"><?php _e('Atom'); ?></a></li> <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
These were the most efficient ways to add your RSS. Wish you good luck!
