Add RSS/Atom tag's to head section on all pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: axelseaa

Description:
RSS is becoming bigger and bigger, and more and more people are beginning to use
it. The problem is that the only time the head tags are included is when the
recent chages page is loaded. Would it be possible for the rss/atom tags to be
loaded on every page? Or is there a reason why it's only displayed on the recent
changes page?

I guess you mean the <link rel='alternate' type='application/atom+xml'
title='Atom 0.3'
href='/yourwiki/index.php?title=Spezial:Recentchanges&amp;feed=atom' /> tags ?

I support your idea; had the same yesterday :-)

Because there's no such "feed" for "all pages" ?

It's a feed for the application though, not a feed for each page. The recent
change page is relevent to the entire install of mediawiki, which is why it
would fit to be on each page.

Alternatively, what if the recent changes page displayed a rss link for the
entire app, and then on each page you could have an rss for that page. I think
offering an RSS feed for each individual page, as well as the entire application
would be the desired way to go.
