WordPress Comment Subscriptions by Category
It’s particularly helpful in a rather specific situation- i.e. one where you’re doing a mother blog and want to see all the student comments (like Allen did with the #thoughtvectors reader) but since we have students using their blogs for more than one class things get messy fast.
So anyway, here’s the structure to get the comments for specific categories/tags.
- by name – http://bionicteaching.com/comments/feed/?category_name=apple
- by category ID – http://bionicteaching.com/comments/feed/?cat=18
- by tag name – http://bionicteaching.com/comments/feed/?tag=tutorial-2
This is one of those things that barely rates a post but given I didn’t know how to do it maybe it’ll help some other wanderer and for people who want this it’ll be really useful. Thanks to Mark, Alan, and Martin for helping me out.
1 I like Yahoo Pipes but one has to assume Yahoo will kill it dead very soon . . . although I’ve been hearing that for several years.
