RSS Feeds For Blog Authors

Do you run a multi-author WordPress blog? When it gets bigger, someone may (eventually) want the ability to subscribe to a single author’s posts. It’s possible, and it’s ridiculously simple to do. Don’t underestimate the power of the WordPress Template Tags!

You can add an Author RSS subscription link to any post page with a simple line of code:

<a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/?feed=rss2&author=<?php the_author_ID(); ?>"><?php the_author(); ?></a>

This will output the post author’s name, linked to an RSS 2.0 feed of their posts. Easy!

I’m surprised that so many people don’t realize you can do this.
