Add custom article types to the RSS feed in the Dashboard

custom article types

By default, the WordPress RSS feed only shows recent blog posts. However, if you use custom article types that are meant for other

content, you may want to include them in your main RSS feed as well.

In this article, we will show you how to easily add custom article types to your RSS feed in your WordPress dashboard.

RSS overview:

The rich site summary is a data format for publishing feeds, and it is a means to enable different programs and systems to use the content

published by other systems, and an application to enable users to follow the latest site news without the need to visit each site

separately, or it is a technology for writing content so that we can transfer it to another site.

First off: Why add custom post types to your main WordPress RSS feed?

By default, WordPress has two common types of content called Posts and Pages.

However, you can also create custom post types to add more content types if needed.

For example, a movie review website might want to create a post type dedicated to movie reviews with custom ratings

appropriate for that particular content type.

Now, your custom article types can have their own RSS feed which users can access by adding /feed/ at the

end of the custom article type archive URL.

However, post-custom type feeds are not easily detected.

If a user enters your website URL into their feed reader, they will display the option to subscribe to the

RSS feed in the main WordPress.
