please set $wgSiteFeed['rss'] = "" for english wikinews
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Currently all pages on the english wikinews have a link to the special:recentchanges rss and atom feeds.

Well this makes sense for most wikis, Wikinews has its own rss feed of latest stories (attached with a link tag via ugly javascriptness unfortunatly). Having the RC rss feeds additionally linked only serves to confuse our end-users.

In summary, please remove lines 11-12 (of html source):

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Wikinews RSS Feed" href=";feed=rss" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Wikinews Atom Feed" href=";feed=atom" />

from all pages except [[special:recentchanges]] of the english wikinews.


p.s. I'm putting this in site requests, as that is what it is, but i am unsure if this is just a configuration issue or requires some code change or the like and should be filed as a general bug. I apologize if this is in the wrong place.

Well, for probably your JS code could remove the default feed as well as add its additional one. :)

But it would be nice to have the ability to override which feed gets included as the sitewide default.

Oh cool.

So I geuss that changes this bug to be a configuration change request for english wikinews, setting:

$wgSiteFeed['rss'] = "";
