    Do you also run a blog having multiple authors? Do you mind giving your authors specific feed to the articles they publish on your blog? I am sure you don’t.

    See how you can do it in WordPress.

    Every author on your blog is identified by a unique name which is generally the first name appended by middle and last name. If you are not aware of the user name, then navigate to www.yourblog.com/wp-admin/users.php. You will see a list of users’ blogging on your blog.

    The first column of the list is the user name.

    You now know user names of all your user bloggers.

    Now you need to know how to get feed from a specific user. No plugin, no modifications anywhere. WordPress supports it by default.

    You can access all posts feed from a specific user by accessing the url similar to:

    www.yourblog.com/author/<username>/feed

    For e.g. www.nkjlive.com/author/ankitjain/feed will display all posts published by Ankit Jain at NKJ Live.

    Having identified the feed, you can now go to your feedburner account (whichever feed burner tool you use) and burn the feed to give a simpler look feeds.feedburner.com/nkjliveAnkitJain or if you have read my previous article on how to promote your website name in the feed address then you can even give feed address as feeds.nkjlive.com/nkjliveAnkitJain.

    That’s it. You are done. Your authors can now use this feed to display their posts on their own blog or anywhere they wish to. You can even configure to display adsense ads on the feed and share revenue.

    Happy blogging!
