How to Find out What's New?

There are three ways to find out what's new in each TWiki web:

  1. WebChanges shows recent changes
  2. People subscribed in WebNotify get notified of recent changes by e-mail
  3. A news feed can be exported in RSS 1.0 format for TWiki:Codev/TWikiSyndication. RSS news readers like TWiki:Plugins/HeadlinesPlugin can display the recent changes

RSS Feed Usage

RSS Feed Internals

Each web has a WebRss topic which includes part of this WebRssBase topic. This topic is the base for the RSS feed and generates an RSS 1.0 feed for TWiki:Codev/TWikiSyndication.

The WebRss topic in each web contains the following text:

<channel rdf:about="%SCRIPTURL%/view%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%INCLUDINGWEB%">
  <title>%WIKITOOLNAME%'s %INCLUDINGWEB% web</title>
  <description>(the description of the web). TWiki is a Web-Based Collaboration Platform for the Corporate World.</description>

Below part is included by each WebRss topic:

%STARTINCLUDE%<image rdf:resource="%WIKILOGOIMG%" />
  <dc:publisher>%WIKIWEBMASTERNAME% [%WIKIWEBMASTER%]</dc:publisher>
  <dc:creator>%WIKIWEBMASTERNAME% [%WIKIWEBMASTER%]</dc:creator>
