ATOM Feed Usage

ATOM Feed Internals

Each web has a Web Atom topic which includes part of this WebAtomBase topic. This topic is the base for the ATOM feed and generates an Web Atom 1.0 feed.

The Web Atom topic in each web contains the following text:

<title><nop>%WIKITOOLNAME%'s <nop>%BASEWEB% web</title>
<subtitle><literal>The %WEB% web of %WIKITOOLNAME%. %WEBSUMMARY%</literal></subtitle>
%INCLUDE{"%SYSTEMWEB%.WebAtomBase"}% <!--
   * Set SKIN = rssatom
   * Set COVER = rssatom

Note: The subtitle is expanded from the %WEB%, %WIKITOOLNAME% and %WEBSUMMARY% macros. These must expand to plain text with no links or html markup. <literal> is used to avoid links if the web name or any of the macros expand to include Wiki Words or other markup.

Below part is included by each WebAtom topic:

%STARTINCLUDE%<link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/%BASETOPIC%"/>
  "%URLPARAM{"search" encode="entities, quote" default=".*" }%"
