WordPress uses a set of feed templates to display your site’s feeds, in much the same way as it uses theme templates to display your content. These feed templates are located in the wp-includes WordPress directory. These core files are not directly compatible with the Theme system, however it is possible to use custom page templates to achieve a theme-based solution (see further information and links below) or change which templates are used.

WordPress has an incredibly sophisticated template hierarchy. Everything falls back to index.php, while templates such as page.php and single.php display various types of content differently. But you could get specific with category.php and even home.php. As you can imagine, home.php would be your home page, and category.php would display relevant posts when the visitor is viewing a category page. What you might not know is that you can get category-specific. By creating a template page named category-[slug].php or category-[id].php (that is, for example, category-news.php or category-6.php), you are telling WordPress, “Use this template specifically for this category.” I usually copy index.php or category.php and modify them.

Feeds are delivered to the aggregator, which is often called a “feed reader.” After some exploration, you’ll notice that there are three main types of RSS readers: online RSS services, native RSS apps, and offline desktop clients. Not all options allow for both, so be sure to check before committing to one. Readers run automatically in the background, finding new articles as soon as they’re published. It can be very handy when a feed allows for syncing on multiple devices. It’s great to read on the go and the option to keep things up to date on mobile certainly comes in hand.
