RSS is a format that allows for items from other websites to be dynamically included in another website (among other things - this is just the releveant one for us right now). To use RSS fees with your wiki post, you will include the following:
The recommended options to use for this feature are:
The options you can use (with each option separated by a pipe ("|") are:
# charset=... (The charset used by the feed. iconv is used to convert this.) # short (Do not show the description text for each news item.) # max=x (Shows x most recent headlines.) # highlight= term1 term2 (The terms separated by a space are highlighted.) # filter= term1 term2 (Show only rss items containing at least one of the terms.) # reverse (display the rss items in reverse order.) # title=x (display an alternative title instead of chanel name.) # title = none (dont display any title.) # date (display the date and time stamp below the title.)
For example, the RSS Feed URL (web address) JetNation is http://jetnation.com/wp-rss2.php. To add JetNation's latest articles into the wiki post you would add the following to your wiki entry:
- Jets Hire OL Coach Marshall
- NY Jets Hall of Famer Curtis Martin on JetNation Radio

- Pryor to Benefit From Hiring of Danna?
