    To create a custom feed that takes a GET parameter on a URL (e.g., place something like the following in your particular feed file to send an excerpt (the_excerpt_rss()) instead of the full content (the_content()):

    if isset( $_GET['type'] ) ) {
    	$typewanted = sanitize_text_field( $_GET['type'] );
    if ( $typewantd == 'excerpt' ) {
    	// Wrap the Excerpt in a span tag for CSS styling
    	echo '<span class="excerpt">'; 
    	echo '</span>';
    } else {  
    	// Otherwise they want the full content so wrap it in another span
    	echo '<span class="content">';
    	echo '</span>';
