Parameters

Examples

To create a custom feed that takes a GET parameter on a URL (e.g. http://www.example.com/?feed=myfeed&type=excerpt), place something like the following in your particular feed file to send an excerpt (the_excerpt_rss()) instead of the full content (the_content()):

<?php
if isset($_GET['type'])) { $typewanted = $_GET['type']; }
if ($typewantd=='excerpt') {
  // Wrap the Excerpt in a span tag for CSS styling
  echo '<span class="excerpt">'; 
  the_excerpt_rss();   
  echo '</span>';
} else {  
  // Otherwise they want the full content so wrap it in another span
  echo '<span class="content">';
  the_content();
  echo '</span>';
}
?>
