Description Kalan 2007-06-01 05:47:48 UTC
Currently API provides (?action=feedwatchlist) me and other users an efficient way to be up on many things that happens in wikis. But for some purposes I need several other feeds: the ability to read logs (e.g., Special:Log/upload), user contributions (Special:Contributions/XXX) and linked recent changes (Special:Recentchangeslinked/XXX) in RSS format.
Comment 1 Victor Vasiliev 2007-06-03 12:21:35 UTC
It seems to me that feed functions of MediaWiki is now not well-structured. Some of it is in main part of engine, some of it is in API. I think it's better to move Watchlist to main engine as it is done with page history.
Comment 2 Roan Kattouw 2007-06-14 14:31:22 UTC
Recentchanges is available as RSS and Atom, just visit the wiki and click the "RSS" or "Atom" link in the left navigation bar. I agree that these feeds should be retrievable through the API as well.

Special:Log and Special:Contributions each have API interfaces (action=query&list=logevents and action=query&list=usercontribs respectively), but no RSS feed as far as I know. A (temporary) solution could be to use these interfaces and convert the output to RSS yourself.

I'm not sure LE and UC will get RSS feeds, though, as few people will be interested in that.
Comment 3 Daniel Cannon (AmiDaniel) 2007-11-01 18:56:22 UTC
Changing to LATER as there doesn't seem to be much desire for this feature at this time. 
Comment 4 brianna.laugher 2008-08-21 06:02:26 UTC
Why would few people be interested in  logevents and usercontribs? Follow newly registered users, recently deleted pages, recently moved pages, recently protected pages, recently uploaded files...of course that is interesting!

Note <> could possibly be copied for the upload log feed (choose format RSS/atom).
Comment 5 Andre Klapper 2012-12-21 14:17:31 UTC
[Removing RESOLVED LATER as discussed in . Reopening and setting priority to "Lowest". For future reference, please use either RESOLVED WONTFIX (for issues that will not be fixed), or simply set lowest priority. Thanks a lot!]
Comment 6 Tomasz W. Kozlowski 2013-10-24 20:38:04 UTC
Just as a FYI, a link to Atom feed is now visible in the "Toolbox" section of the sidebar for Special:Contributions and Special:Recentchangeslinked, but we still don't have a feed link for Special:Log.
Comment 7 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2013-10-24 20:41:49 UTC
Re-titling bug to reflect comment 6.

(Unclear if this is really API's problem. Most special pages handle their own RSS feed.)

*** Bug 4182 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 9 Nemo 2014-07-02 07:45:02 UTC
Missing feeds for one of the components of history is IMHO a bug. It's surely inconsistent now that we have feeds for all the others.
