The RSS Feed for Posts add-on will automatically generate and dynamically update RSS feeds for all post types on the website.
Posts types (articles, classifieds, events, properties, etc.) will have their own RSS feeds that will always be kept up to date in real-time as content is published to the website. This add-on will also have an all-inclusive RSS feed which aggregates all published posts.

Using the Add-On
To see all of the posts in an RSS feed ALL add /rss at the end of the URL:
The RSS feed just for a specific post type, is done by adding /rss at the end of the post type link:
The admin can grab the URL directly by going to My Content - Edit Post Settings and copying the URL from here:
The admin can also get as specific as possible as long that the result is within the website for the post that is intended to share. For example, if the admin wanted to show all the articles with the word "sample" in the title the admin would add the URL like this:
Or if they wish to have the articles that belong in a certain category it would be like this:
The admin can simply go into the website, do a quick search within the feature and grab the URL that is given, simply copy from the ?q and add it to the end of the /rss to make it more detailed.

By default, this RSS feed will show 10 posts, but if the admin wishes to increase the limit please add this at the end of the URL.
The ?limit= will tell the RSS feed how many posts to show at a time.
Once this add-on is installed the Meta Tag for the RSS feed will add this automatically, letting Google know that the site has an RSS.
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="My New Website RSS Feed" href="http://www.YOURDOMAIN.com/rss" />
The admin can change the Title of the RSS by editing the text label rss_field as shown below, by default the title will be 'RSS Feed':
Important Note: RSS Feed will include the same posts as they would appear in the search results. It means that only the Published posts will appear on the RSS Feed and the Unpublished posts will not be included.
