Description Enrico Stahn 2005-04-13 18:55:22 UTC
Thunderbird synchronize the rss feed items by the items given urls. The problem
is, that url's in the specialpage "Recentchanges" are unique. It looks like
this: <http://.../index.php/HowTos>.

If have made some changes, thunderbird didn't update the rss inbox.

To fix this problem, append the date of the article on the url.

  line 224: <link><?php print $item->getUrl().'?'.$item->getDate(); ?></link>

A better way would be then we have the real link to version of page we got
through the rss item. This means, we will click on the link and go through the
old page version.
