Embed RSS feed into wiki page


This is a macro to embed a RSS feed into a Trac wiki page. This is useful for embedding the output or a ticket query from other Trac instances into a wiki page.

To display the RSS feed, the existing HTML is stripped out. A parameter controls the display of a preview of the first 512 characters of each item. See the examples below.

Parameters are given as key-value pairs, such as in param=value. See below for a list of accepted parameters.
