Pulling Custom RSS feed from header/footer?


In the Podcast RSS guide for ghost its advisded to use the Facebook description field to pull the custom podcast link from.

I’m doing a lot of FB posting and having the link in the description is strange.

Is it possible to pull the link from the header or footer?


You could use an alternate field, not the code injection fields as they may render on the page. You could use the Twitter description instead? You’ll need to replace the {{og_description}} helper with {{twitter_description}} in the podcast template like so:

{{#get "posts" filter="tag:podcast" include="tags,authors" as |episode|}}
    {{#foreach episode}}
        <link>{{url absolute="true"}}</link>
        <pubDate>{{date format="ddd, DD MMM YYYY HH:mm:ss ZZ"}}</pubDate>
        <guid isPermaLink="false">{{id}}</guid>
        <category><![CDATA[ {{primary_tag}} ]]></category>
        <content:encoded><![CDATA[ {{content}} ]]></content:encoded>
        <enclosure url="{{twitter_description}}" length="0" type="audio/mpeg"/>
        <itunes:summary><![CDATA[ {{content}} ]]></itunes:summary>
