Description Minh Nguyễn 2004-10-13 01:15:40 UTC
The feed parameter in a special page's URL (feed=rss or feed=atom) is ignored,
so the links to RSS and Atom feeds don't work.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to any special page that offers RSS/Atom feeds, such as
[[Special:Listusers]] or [[vi:Special:Newpages]].
2. Click on the "rss" or "atom" feed in the sidebar.

Expected results:

The RSS or Atom version of the listing.

Actual results:

The same page you were just on.
Comment 1 Minh Nguyễn 2004-10-13 01:17:59 UTC
Correction: the feeds seem to work on some pages, such as [[Special:Newpages]],
but not on others, such as [[Special:Listusers]]. I've seen this on en:, es:,
and vi:.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2004-10-13 06:10:22 UTC
Changed bug summary to reflect the nature of the problem.
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-11-13 20:30:44 UTC
This is due to certain special page use QueryPage class which hard
code everything as $wgOut->setSyndicated( true ); where as it should
be settable in child class.
Comment 4 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-11-13 20:41:34 UTC
Fixed in cvs : stop showing rss/atom links using the
new QueryPage:isSyndicated() method
