Description

Apparently these are the RSS feeds for Akismet support topics and reviews:

However, they are not mentioned anywhere. They should be added as a <link> element to the forums theme header.

Change History (17)

The Admin tab in the plugins directory (eg https://wordpress.org/plugins/plugin-slug/admin/) currently has the "Support Forums Tag" "RSS Feed" linking to:

https://wordpress.org/tags/plugin-slug

However it should link to

https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/plugin-slug/feed

Thank you!

@jamescollins: Thanks for pointing out that link!

It turns out the "Support Forums Tag" link (and its associated "RSS Feed") aren't for the plugin's support forum but for a tag in the support forums that is the plugin's slug (e.g. basically, say for Akismet, wherever in the forums "akismet" is added as a tag).

I've fixed the URLs for these two links in [dotorg12418].

More helpfully in that list of "Links", I've added a link "Support Forum" (same URL as for the "Support" tab) and its associated "RSS Feed", which points to the plugin-specific support forum's feed (https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/{PLUGIN-SLUG}/feed/). Added in [dotorg12419].

Looks good @coffee2code. The links in my plugin's admin tab are all working.

It's great to now have both sets of links (the tag and the plugin), along with their corresponding RSS feeds.

Thank you.

Is there a similar link for plugin committers? the old link was:

https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-committer/{profile-name}

Hi! Very happy to see that the RSS for plugins are working so thanks for that. Just a tiny bug there for some reason it seems like stickied posts have an empty RSS? Example: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/read-before-posting-13/feed

This ticket came up during a bug scrub. I wanted to echo @otto42's comment in Slack, in case it helps:

Looking through the bbPress plugin, I see that it supports all different sorts of feeds, but it lacks any code for creating the link rel=alternate headers for that information. Seems like this should be brought to bbPress to add such a thing.

In the meantime, we could put some code into the wporg-support theme to add these, similar to how the feed_links function in WordPress works. Once bbPress adds them, we switch to using their code instead.

Would this be a feasible solution @SergeyBiryukov?
