You will likely never see or use the web address again, but the RSS Feed for your tagged/categorized/labeled blog posts is what enables this site to check yours for new content that you have designated to be shared..

Use the patterns below to find the web address RSS Feed for your blog’s tagged/categorized/labeled blog posts. Just believe in the magic it does.

WordPress.com Tag/Category RSS Feed Address

Wordpress

For a free hosted WordPress.com blog, in the last section you determined the web address to show all of your tagged or categorized posts. The corresponding RSS feed just has feed appended to the end of that URL.

For a WordPress.com blog where someone uses an Ontario Extend category, where the link for all posts in this category looks like https://thimblesdogslearning.wordpress.com/category/ontario-extend, the corresponding RSS feed link is

https://thimblesdogslearning.wordpress.com/category/ontario-extend/feed

And if the author instead is using an oextend tag, the link for all posts with this tag is https://thimblesdogslearning.wordpress.com/tag/oextend, the corresponding RSS feed link is

https://thimblesdogslearning.wordpress.com/tag/oextend/feed

You should try the feed address in a web browser; you might only see code, but make sure the link works (note, the Safari web browser will not display RSS feeds). Add the feed address to the place you previously stored your link for all tagged/categorized posts

Self Hosted WordPress Tag/Category RSS Feed Address

Wordpress

For a WordPress self-hosted blog where someone uses an Ontario Extend category, the RSS Feed for all posts in this category should look something like

  • http://thimblesdogslearning.ca/category/ontario-extend/feed (WordPress installed as the main site on a domain)
  • http://thimblesdogslearning.ca/blog/category/ontario-extend/feed (WordPress installed in a subdirectory on a domain)
  • http://blog.thimblesdogslearning.ca/category/ontario-extend/feed (WordPress installed in a subdomain)

If the author instead is using an oextend tag, RSS Feed for all posts with this tag should look something like

  • http://thimblesdogslearning.ca/tag/oextend/feed (WordPress installed as the main site on a domain)
  • http://thimblesdogslearning.ca/blog/tag/oextend/feed (WordPress installed in a subdirectory on a domain)
  • http://blog.thimblesdogslearning.ca/tag/oextend/feed (WordPress installed in a subdomain)

You should try the RSS feed address that matches your blog in a web browser; you might only see code, but make sure the link works (note, the Safari web browser will not display RSS feeds). Add the feed address to the place you previously stored your blog public address.

Blogger Labeled Posts RSS Feed Address

Blogger

For a Blogger site where someone uses an oextend label, the link for all posts in this category should look something like
