RSS Auto discovery


 


Wikka RSS feeds


A small modification to header.php allows Wikka feeds to be 'autodiscovered' by most feed readers and now also by some browsers supporting this mechanism.

Add the following lines after the stylesheet-related lines in actions/header.php:

<?php
if ($this->GetMethod() != 'edit') {
    $rsslink  = '   <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="'.$this->GetWakkaName().': revisions for '.$this->tag.'" href="'.$this->Href('revisions.xml', $this->tag).'" />'."\n";
    $rsslink .= '   <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="'.$this->GetWakkaName().': recently edited pages" href="'.$this->Href('recentchanges.xml', $this->tag).'" />'."\n";
    echo $rsslink
}
?>


Feed reader support


To use autodiscovery, you don't need to find out the location of the RSS file, you simply give your RSS reader the address of the web page and the RSS reader will search the page for any RSS links that it can find.

Feed readers with autodiscovery include (in alphabetical order):

Aggie
FeedDemon
SharpReader (Only the first link is picked up.)

Browser support



Link navigation support can be found in:

Mozilla
Mozilla 'Other Versions' in link navigation bar
Note that Mozilla will display all alternate links, so these should be labeled as 'RSS' in the title attribute (in addition to the description).

Other browsers with support for link navigation are iCab and Lynx (no screenshots available.)
