Paginated Result Sets

Feeds return a maximum of 25 items, listed in descending order with the most recent items first. Comment feeds can’t be paginated, but all other feeds can be. If you need more than 25 items, you can retrieve additional pages by adding ?paged=[page] onto the end of any post-related feed URL.

https://src.works/feed (page 1)
https://src.works/feed?paged=2 (page 2)
https://src.works/feed?paged=3 (page 3, etc.)


Feed Auto-Discovery

All of the feeds support auto-discovery, allowing browsers to provide a list of feeds associated with any page you land on. For example, if you’re using Google Chrome, you can install the RSS Subscription Extension. It places RSS icons in your toolbar as you navigate through a site like ‹src.works/›.


Building Custom Feeds

Category-Specific Feeds

You can get posts from a specific category using a known category slug. Category slugs can be found by navigating to the desired category at ‹src.works/›. Look in your browser’s address bar for the slug; e.g., .../category/[slug]

https://src.works/category/[slug]/feed

Multi-Category Feeds

You can get posts from multiple categories using comma-delimited category slugs. Feed URLs in this format return posts that are in any of the listed categories; i.e., if a post is in any category you list, it’s included.

https://src.works/category/[slug],[slug]/feed

Project-Specific Feeds

Projects are just another type of category. You can get posts from a specific project category using a known slug. Project category slugs can be found by navigating to the desired project category at ‹src.works/›. Look in your browser’s address bar for the slug; e.g., .../category/projects/[slug]

https://src.works/category/projects/[slug]/feed

Multi-Project Feeds

You can get posts from multiple projects using comma-delimited project category slugs. Feed URLs in this format return posts that are in any of the listed project categories; i.e., if a post is in any category you list, it’s included.

https://src.works/category/projects/[slug],[slug]/feed

Search Term Feeds

Use the ?s= query string variable to filter by search term(s).

https://src.works/feed?s=search+terms
https://src.works/category/[slug],[slug]/feed?s=search+terms
https://src.works/category/projects/[slug],[slug]/feed?s=search+terms

Author-Specific Feeds

Author-specific feeds can be built using /author/[username], where [username] is the author’s username at ‹src.works/›. To find an author’s username, click the author’s name atop any post by that author. Look in your browser’s address bar for the username; e.g., /author/[username]

https://src.works/author/[username]/feed

Post-Specific Comment Feeds

Comments are powered by Disqus and comment feed URLs contain a slug that Disqus generates. So you’ll have to hunt down that slug. To find a feed URL for comments on a specific post, visit the post in a browser, view source, and review <link rel="alternate" ... tags in the <head>.
