This Action Plugin modifies the content of DokuWiki's full HTML feed to make it suitable for blogging purposes. It removes the first headline from the feed item body and sets it as feed item title. It also detects if the page uses the discussion plugin and adds a link to the discussion section after the feed item. It has also support for a custom footer template which gets added to each feed item. This can be used to add links to social bookmarking services for example (see customization).

Note: The plugin modifies the feed only if two conditions are set, namely when the content is set to html and linkto is set to direct (see syndication).

I had to set the kind of feed to RSS1.0 to make it work — seb_1204 2010/05/04 21:49


Download the archive and unpack it into <dokuwiki>/lib/plugins.

The plugin is also available via git.

% cd <dokuwiki>/lib/plugins
% git clone git:// feedmod


The plugin has support for a custom footer template which gets added to every feed item. To get it working you have to create a file named _footer.txt below the plugin directory. The plugin contains a _footer.txt.dist file which contains some examples. The following replacement patterns can be used in this file.

@URL@ Full url to the feed item
@PAGE@ Page id of the feed item
@TITLE@ Title (first headline) of the feed item
@AUTHOR@ Author of the feed item (wiki page)

Here's a short example for social bookmarking services:

<a href="" title="Digg this post">Digg this post</a> &middot;
<a href="" title="Digg this post">Stumble it</a> &middot;
<a href="" title="Save to">Save to</a>
