Change feeds should display in diff mode
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: sorin

In order to monitor the changes in pages the feed generator should create link
to change diffs. This way anyone will be able to see directly the last changes.

The current behavior is to display the last version, but we are interested in
seeing the changes not the final result. Anyone can enter bad data and we'll not
be able to see the diff.

(feed rss atom diff changes)

Could you be so kind to show be what url are you using for this? When you click
on a news item the html-diff page will apear? (HTML, two-columns, colored words...)

When i subscribe to ../index.php?title=Special:Recentchanges&feed=atom i will
get only entire page feeds not the diff pages. I must clik history, click diff
to see the changes for every news item.

It's probably just your feed reader. Put that url into your browser and you'll
see that the diffs are there.

Strang but after deleted and recreating the feed in Thunberbird seams to work.
Maybe it's a bug in thunderbird :)
I close it. Thanks.
