Tagged with feed

This plugin creates feeds with content from other plugins. To let you show your wiki users that they can use the RSS feed, it includes a syntax for displaying an link to your feed with nice RSS-icon.

The feed is cached. The caching respects the general rss update interval time.


Print a link to your feed with RSS icon.

[component] plugin component for which the feed is destined required
[namespace] the namespace for which you want a discussion thread list;
: is the top namespace,
. is the same namespace as the page lies in,
* the whole wiki
[option] depends on plugin / component, see supported feeds below mostly optional
[title] Title shown in the RSS-Link on the wiki page optional

As of DokuWiki 2008-04-11 DokuWiki has its own full HTML feed and we recommend to use it instead of this plugin to generate the blog feed. This component will be removed from the plugin a in couple of months from now

It has not been removed and there are likely no plans to do so. Besides DokuWiki's HTML feed is still lacking in some ways (cf. 2765). — Andreas SchamanekAndreas Schamanek

Please don't remove the blogging feed just yet. It works better for blog articles that are nested in many namespaces — Drye Kindrew 2008/11/13 08:00
