Description Aaron Axelsen 2006-03-27 16:57:29 UTC
The single quotes used to include the rss/atom links in line 878 and 880 of
includes/OutputPage.php cause firefox to not detect that there is a feed on the
page.  This may affect other things as well.

The fix is to just change the linkes to use " as follows:

$ret .= "<link rel=\"alternate\" type=\"application/rss+xml\" title=\"RSS 2.0\"
href=\"$link\" />\n";

$ret .= "<link rel=\"alternate\" type=\"application/atom+xml\" title=\"Atom
0.3\" href=\"$link\" />\n";

Firefox 1.5 sees the RSS feed and shows it's little orange link
in the URL bar at eg

If you have some odd version of Firefox where this doesn't work,
you can report bugs to the Mozilla team at

I have also tested this, and it seems to work.
