A proposal to move this page to MediaWiki.org was rejected.
Because the Template:MoveToMediaWiki tag was on the page for a year without any MediaWiki.org importers seeing fit to transwiki it, the move proposal was regarded as rejected by the MediaWiki.org community.

This is a slightly modified version of the RSS engine from User:Duesentrieb, which in turn is an extended version of the RSS-feed extension by Mutante

It now supports limiting the number of headlines displayed by the feed to a number passed as an argument, of the form max=x where x is the number of headlines you want.

Further features added : highlighting and filtering, see RSS - Mafs 20:42, 10 July 2005 (UTC)

 # RSS-Feed Mediawiki extension
 # 
 # original by mutante 25.03.2005
 # extended by Duesentrieb 30.04.2005
 # extended by Rdb78 07.07.2005
 #
 # Requires: 
 #  * magpie rss parser <http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/>
 #  * iconv <http://www.gnu.org/software/libiconv/>, see also <http://www.php.net/iconv>
 #
 # Installation:
 #  * put this file (rss.php) into the extension directory of your mediawiki installation 
 #  * add the following to the end of LocalSettings.php: include("extensions/rss.php");
 #  * make sure magpie can be found by PHP.
 #
 # Usage:
 #  Use one section between <rss>-tags for each feed. The ress section may contain parameters
 #  separated by a pipe ("|"), just like links and templates. Two parameters are supported:
 #    * 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.
 #
 # Example: 
 #    <rss>http://slashdot.org/slashdot.rss|charset=UTF-8|short|max=5</rss>
 #
 
 
 #change this according to your magpie installation!
