#5146 reopened defect

All Recent Topics RSS Feed returns topics from plugins and themes, not the general forums

Reported by: mmediagroup Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


I've just subscribed to the Recent Topics RSS feed in Slack https://wordpress.org/support/topics/feed/ but it only seems to be returning topics created on plugin and theme support pages, and none from the general forum topics.

You want to subscribe to all topics in all forums?

For one specific forum you could use: https://wordpress.org/support/forum/installation/feed/?type=topic

Hey @casiepa! Ideally, yes - that's the behaviour I'd expect (or at least get all topics in the support forum, not from the plugins and themes). I was told this was unexpected behaviour hence I opened this issue :)

re-opening since this shouldn't be happening.

As far as I can tell, this is working as expected, however there are a lot of plugin/theme threads created verses other forums.

Caching and the limited number of topics in the feed mean it's entirely possible to miss the non-plugin/theme threads.

I've tried the following feed https://wordpress.org/support/view/all-topics/feed/?type=topic and expect it to return the same posts as seen here https://wordpress.org/support/view/all-topics/, but instead it returns results from all forums (I am seeing posts only from plugins and themes, but you may be right that they are getting lost in the noise).

Interestingly, it seems that https://wordpress.org/support/view/no-replies/feed/ works as expected, and returns posts only from here: https://wordpress.org/support/view/no-replies/
