WordPress RSS feed for a single author

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

A few weeks ago, I started importing posts on this blog to my Facebook profile. It was easy to set up, and seemed to work perfectly… until Pamela wrote a blog post, and it got imported to my Facebook profile as well. Oops.

I searched the WordPress docs for a while to see if there was an easy way to expose different RSS feeds per author, but I didn’t find one, so I decided to see if Yahoo! Pipes could help me out. I’d never used Yahoo! Pipes before, but it took all of 5 minutes (I skipped the tutorial and documentation…) to get a working RSS feed filtered by author. Props to Yahoo!

Anyway, Facebook should now be importing only posts by me to my profile. If you don’t hear from me again on this subject, that means it’s working. ūüôā

[Update 2009-04-18: Apparently, WordPress has the ability to export an RSS feed of posts per author.  For my posts on this blog, the URL is http://tedandpamela.com/author/ted/feed.  The documentation is buried deep in http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_authors.  Thanks to Brian Tarricone for the tip. ]
