Description Jason Spiro 2006-02-01 03:29:40 UTC
Wikipedia :EN should have an RSS feed of the last fifteen items from
[[Template:Did you know]].

The RSS feed could be updated automatically or manually.

This bug blocks bug 4819, "Design Google Toolbar 4.0 search button".
Comment 1 Chris Jenkinson 2006-02-02 23:06:41 UTC
I've applied for a toolserver account so I can develop this properly, rather
than scraping the page and having to kludge around the dates.

Comment 2 Chris Jenkinson 2006-04-03 02:24:18 UTC
Rob, how is this an invalid bug?
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-05-31 01:17:51 UTC
It's invalid because a single, specialist template on a single wiki hasn't got a
lot to do with MediaWiki overall.
Comment 4 Jason Spiro 2006-05-31 04:52:39 UTC
Why don't we create a category in this Bugzilla for to-do items on enwiki?

Or at least a page on enwiki: [[Wikipedia:Bugs and requests]] where we can list
them all.
Comment 5 Mike 2007-02-02 06:34:01 UTC
Perhaps the suggestion to MediaWiki should be:

The ability to have an RSS Feed for any template.

Then other wikis, including wikipedia, can establish templates as feasibly "RSS
Feed"-able. I'm going to create a bug that encompasses this, as well as another
on the list as dependencies.
