Find out What's New

There are several ways to find out what's new in each web:
  1. Visit Web Changes to see recent changes
  2. Subscribe in Web Notify to get notified of recent changes by e-mail
  3. Use a news reader such as Foswiki:Extensions/HeadlinesPlugin to display the recent changes

RSS Feed Usage

RSS Feed Internals

Each web has a Web Rss topic which includes part of this WebRssBase topic. This topic is the base for the RSS feed and generates an RSS 1.0 feed.

The Web Rss topic in each web contains the following text:


<channel rdf:about="%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%">
  <title>%WIKITOOLNAME%'s <nop>%BASEWEB% web</title>
  <link>%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%</link>
  <description><literal>%MAKETEXT{"The [_1] web of [_2]." args="%WEB%,%WIKITOOLNAME%"}% %WEBSUMMARY%</literal></description>
%INCLUDE{"System.WebRssBase"}% <!--
   * Set SKIN = rss
   * Set COVER = rss
-->

Note: The description is expanded from the %WEB%, %WIKITOOLNAME% and %WEBSUMMARY% macros. These must expand to plain text with no links or html markup. <literal> is used to avoid links if the web name or any of the macros expand to include Wiki Words or other markup.

The part below is included by each WebRss topic:
