Automatic Category Feeds for Everyone!

Friday, August 28, 2009

All RSS feeds can now have category feeds automatically, courtesy the FeedBlitz RSS service. Simply add /tag/ and then the category to any FeedBlitz RSS feed and the filter is applied.
Easy! You can separate multiple tags with commas, like this:


Or, include multiple tag definitions, like this:


You can also mix "tag" and "not" like this:


All these tag filters work for the XML RSS feed, the browser (and SEO) friendly HTML versions, and the mobile versions that FeedBlitz generates automatically.

I just signed up for a trial period because of this functionality, and will keep using FB as a paying subscriber if it works because it is so important to my blog as I blog about vastly different industries and don't want my readers to have to see posts in industries unrelated to theirs.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work. Namely, entering the category-specific URL in my browser, for instance http://feeds.feedblitz.com/growthtimes/tag/market/ (for my old blog), the filter is applied. However, if I subscribe to the feed or ask for emails, the filter does not work.

Also, I added 2 custom fields to my newsletter subscription but they do not appear in the admin area and I cannot delete them (although they do appear when one subscribes to the newsletter).

Last, it's very unclear how to set up FB in wordpress... I'll keep digging but I am finding FB much less user-friendly than I initially expected for a paying service.

So far I am quite confused with setup. I hope to hear from support!

Hi @Greg:

Support is the place to seek help, not the comments! We'll be in touch :)

Indeed, and that was fast. Thanks Phil!

All problems solved, including that filter that was not applied to the subscription options - now it works great. This is definitely a key differentiator for Feedblitz compared to other services-that-shall-not-be-named! I think you're the only one who enables RSS-to-email filtered by tag and category on Wordpress and that makes you a winner as far as I am concerned.

Keep up the good work, and thanks again.
