How to Add an RSS Feed From Medium to Wordpress
Because adding your Medium RSS feed to Wordpress should be easy but it ain’t.
Urgh. I struggled with this. I have a Wordpress blog and I wanted to ensure the stories I write here on Medium are also picked up over there. Because they are different kinds of stories.
Medium is supposed to be set up for RSS feeds, but it isn’t really. Lies! All lies! When I added the supposed RSS feed to the RSS feed widget on my blog, all I got was an error for my efforts. Urgh. So frustrating.
So I stumbled half-heartedly around Google for a week, trying out different things before I found a solution. Here it is, in a five super simple steps:
- Grab your supposed Medium RSS feed.
- Go to Feedburner (it’s a Google thing, so you’ll need a Google sign-in).
- Enter your supposed Medium feed into Feedburner.
- Grab the feed address that Feedburner spits out.
- Add the Feedburner feed to your Wordpress RSS widget.
That’s it! You’re welcome.
Update: I tried this out today (8 June 2020) on my WordPress site and it still works perfectly.
