There are a great number of interesting feeds that you can get from OpenGuides. The following list exists to show you many of the more interesting ones, and to show you the more advanced feed creation syntax for OpenGuides.

All the Pubs within 5 km of (this os x+y)

Do a search, with the following parameters:

  • search=pubs
  • os_dist=5000
  • os_x=(your location)
  • os_y=(your location)
  • format=rss

eg http://cotswolds.openguides.org/wiki/search.cgi?search=pub&os_dist=5000&os_x=436373&os_y=218688&format=rss

All the Pubs within 2 miles of (this lat+long)

Do a search, with the following parameters:

  • search=pubs
  • latlong_dist=3200
  • latitude=(your location)
  • longitude=(your location)
  • format=atom

eg http://cotswolds.openguides.org/wiki/search.cgi?search=pub&latlong_dist=3200&latitude=51.8582516&longitude=-1.4801633&format=atom

Personal Recent Edits Feed

Use the following parameters:

  • action=rc
  • format=rss
  • username=(user)
  • items=(max # to return)
  • ignore_minor_edits=(0 or 1)
  • format=(rss or atom)

eg: http://cotswolds.openguides.org/wiki/wiki.cgi?action=rc;format=rss;username=NickBurch;items=20;ignore_minor_edits=1

Being a recent edit feed at heart, it contains:

  • A link to the page
  • The title of the page
  • 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

All the Pubs in the System

Use the following parameters:

  • action=index
  • index_type=category
  • index_value=Pubs
  • format=(rss or atom or rdf)

eg: http://cotswolds.openguides.org/wiki/wiki.cgi?action=index;index_type=category;index_value=Pubs;format=rss

The rss and atom feeds contain:

  • A link to the page
  • The title of the page
  • When it was last edited
  • If the latest edit was a new page, a minor edit or a major edit
  • A link to the rdf of the page

(The RDF feed contains slightly less)
