Info on recent changes

It is really very easy to get feeds out of openguides. In fact, many openguides will include RSS links all over the place, just to help you.

Generally speaking, just adding ;format=rss onto a normal url is all that is required to get an RSS feed of that page.

Recent Changes

You can get to the recent changes list by adding ?action=rc onto the wiki link, and then the RSS feed by adding ?action=rc;format=rss , such as http://cotswolds.openguides.org/wiki/wiki.cgi?action=rc and http://cotswolds.openguides.org/wiki/wiki.cgi?action=rc;format=rss.

The RSS version contains lots of useful information. Firstly, it contains a list of the links to the recently changes pages. Then, for each changed page, it contains lots of metadata, including:

  • A link to the page
  • The title of the page
  • Who edited the page, and what comment they included on the change
  • When it was edited
  • If this was a new page, a minor edit or a major edit
  • A link to the rdf of the page

Searches

When searching, like with recent changes, you can request the RSS version of the search results.
