#2677 closed enhancement (worksforme)

RSS Feed could use an updates like functionality

Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Currently, the rss feed link only links to the various blog posts. It'd be nice to have a seperate feed dedicated to providing an updates like stream. Where comments would also be listed as appropriate. My site uses the blog plugin to kinda operate as a status for what people are up to and as somewhat of a discussion about said topic/task. It'd be nice to be able to pull those out in a feed :).

You are right in that the Blog feed only pulls out a 'pure' blog post RSS. That is a very intentional design decision, and in line with the general low-noise behaviour of blog feeds where only the post itself appears - and only once.

However, the plugin implements the timeline interface for the purpose you request, and in the timeline with 'Blog details' checked you will get every change from the Blog system - be it created posts, edited posts or added comments. For tracking all (or part) of a project, the Timeline is the natural place to collect the events that you are interested in.

If you want to add a feed for blog details only to your blog page, grab a blog-only timeline rss feed and add it to the information box in the sidebar through weadmin- it will look something like .../timeline?blog=on&format=rss.

I'm going to close this as worksforme. However, feel free to reopen if you have suggestions to further improve the feed feature(s).

That's actually exactly the behavior I was looking for. I feel so silly having missed it.

Thank you :)
