WordPress fact o’ the day: fun with feeds

I’m browsing through the new WordPress For Dummies book, with the assumption that even though I’ve been using WordPress for a couple of years and am reasonably comfortable hacking small bits of the code, there’s always some tidbit to be learned. It took me until page 147, but here it is: you can get a feed for a specific post (that is, all comments added to that post) or to a category by adding feed/ to the end of the URL.

For example:

These aren’t fancy conditioned feeds like those that I publish for all posts and all comments via Feedburner, but you can copy and paste the URL directly to your feed reader if your feed reader isn’t auto-detected.

By the way, I didn’t have to do anything to my WordPress blog to make this happen, so it should work for any WordPress-based blog that uses pretty permalinks.
