Detail

So, you’ve got users who are posting to multiple different sites on your WordPress Multisite or BuddyPress network?

And you want a way to be able to catch all posts – just by that user – in one feed… regardless of what site they are posted on.

Well, that’s exactly what this plugin provides you with, a feed just for a selected author that combines all their posts into one big RSS job.

Check this out!

It’s really straightforward too – with no pesky options to worry about. Once it’s installed, simply click the Feed link next to the user’s name under Users > All Users in your network admin to open that user’s feed in a new window.

And how would you use it?

Here’s just some examples:

  • Using a theme like WPMU-Dixi which pulls RSS feed onto it’s homepage,
  • By adding it to a 3rd Party RSS feed widget in the side bar
  • Alternatively readers can subscribe to it using feed readers such as Google Reader

Neato! Huh?
