The SimplePie extension allows an RSS feed to be embedded into a MediaWiki page with a simple <feed> tag. Provides various parameters for customization.

CAVEAT: Read before using[edit | edit source]

Installing this extension requires that you also copy simplepie.inc from the main SimplePie library into your extensions folder. The plugin has been updated to support the latest version of SimplePie (1.x).

This plugin has been discontinued. SimplePie has guaranteed NO API BREAKAGE for the entirety of the 1.x series of releases, so this plugin should continue to work until SimplePie 2.0 is released. If this makes you uncomfortable, please check the Mediawiki plugins page on the SimplePie wiki to see what other SimplePie plugins are available for Mediawiki.

Pre-requisites[edit | edit source]

If caching is enabled in MediaWiki - then the feeds might not update until the page is edited. To disable the caching, add the following lines to your LocalSettings.php file:

## Disable all forms of MediaWiki caching 

$wgMainCacheType = CACHE_NONE; 
 
$wgMessageCacheType = CACHE_NONE; 
 
$wgParserCacheType = CACHE_NONE; 
 
$wgCachePages = false;
