Description

Can't publish feeds in the sidebar.

MediaWiki:Ffeed-enable-sidebar-links has been created, see https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Ffeed-enable-sidebar-links, but "Featured content feeds" does not appear in mainpage sidebar:
https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:%E9%A6%96%E9%A1%B5

Event Timeline

This functionality isn't actually enabled on Wikimedia sites:

'wmgDisplayFeedsInSidebar' => [
	'default' => false,
	'testwiki' => true,
],

I don't know why, I guess feeds aren't that useful to most readers?

When I go to the zh.wp main page I do see:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="维基百科每日图片供稿" href="/w/api.php?action=featuredfeed&amp;feed=potd&amp;feedformat=atom"/>
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="维基百科典范条目供稿" href="/w/api.php?action=featuredfeed&amp;feed=featured&amp;feedformat=atom"/>
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="维基百科优良条目供稿" href="/w/api.php?action=featuredfeed&amp;feed=good&amp;feedformat=atom"/>
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="维基百科“历史上的今天”供稿" href="/w/api.php?action=featuredfeed&amp;feed=onthisday&amp;feedformat=atom"/>
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="维基百科“你知道吗?”供稿" href="/w/api.php?action=featuredfeed&amp;feed=dyk&amp;feedformat=atom"/>

so the feeds are actually working.

This functionality isn't actually enabled on Wikimedia sites:

It used to work for example on https://web.archive.org/web/20190712015845/https://fa.wikipedia.org/wiki/صفحهٔ_اصلی
"خوراک‌ها"

Is that deliberately changed? If not maybe bringing them back then deciding about them later with some sort of discussion with community would be better.
