Were you looking for Community Feeds?
Rss font awesome

A web feed is a data format used for serving frequently updated content to users.

A content provider makes feeds available and may publish the feed link on their site. Users can subscribe to the feed using an aggregator application (also called a "feed reader" or a "news reader") running on their computer. Some web browsers also have native options for feeds, such as Firefox.

Fandom provides outgoing RSS and Atom feeds for some pages, and pages can display incoming RSS feeds from other sites.

Which pages provide feeds? Edit

RSS and Atom feeds are available for individual articles and for certain special pages. When you visit the page in question, you can append the page's URL with ?feed=rss or ?feed=atom to access the feed URL. If the URL already has elements that use the ? and = characters, you will need to include the & character in front of the feed elements, like &feed=rss or &feed=atom

Changes to any community Edit

Use the URL for the community's Recent Changes page.

New pages added to any community Edit

Use the URL for the community's New Pages page.

New pages added to a specific namespace Edit

Use the URL for the community's New Pages page and append &namespace=namespaceid

Changes to any wiki article Edit

Use the URL for the article's history page.

RSS watchlist Edit

Use MediaWiki API format for your followed pages.

More information about this method can be found on API:Watchlist feed on MediaWiki.org.

Advice for Apple device users Edit

In the 2010s, Apple devices have increasingly separated RSS feeds from their core functionality. In particular, Safari has removed formatting support for feeds, making most of the above methods obsolete. Try a URL ending in something like ?feed=rss and you'll get content, but it'll be ugly and presented after a stern warning that RSS feeds aren't "ideal" for a web browser.

Instead, Apple users are advised to look for a separate syndicated news reader. These range in price from free to a few bucks, so look around the App Store for something that meets your needs.

Once you've installed a reader, subscribing to an RSS feed is straightforward in Safari.

Just type:

feed://wikiname.fandom.com/Special:SpecialPageName

...into your Safari URL bar, and most readers will automatically offer you a chance to subscribe. Or, if you're not a Safari user, you can just subscribe directly in the reader by entering the URL to which you want to subscribe.

Because there are so many different RSS apps, you'll need to check your app's documentation if you run into any problems.

How do I show RSS content from another site? Edit

The basic syntax is <rss>URL goes here</rss>.

See Help:RSS for more details and options.

Social media feeds and widgets Edit

For information about social media feeds, please see Help:Social media integration.
