RSS Feed Usage

RSS Feed Internals

Each web has a WebRss 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 WebRss 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>(the description of the web). Foswiki, the Free and Open-Source Wiki.</description>
%INCLUDE{"System.WebRssBase"}% <!--
   * Set SKIN = rss
   * Set COVER = rss
-->

Below part is included by each WebRss topic:
