RSS/Atom feeds are an important item which Wikinews is lacking native support for. Several different efforts have been started to give this functionality to the project, and more would be welcomed! Toolserver rss feeds for several languages are available at http://toolserver.org/~zach/cgi-bin/rss.cgi and http://toolserver.org/~cspurrier/rss/rss.php?lang=en&family=wikinews,. These basically are sometimes used for scripts as well.
An RSS feed for the German Wikinews by da Pete is running on Tool Labs. The documentation for "end users" is on n:de:Benutzer:Dapete/RSS (German only), general information and source code is available here.
The script is available, and might be set up for other language editions which request it.
- We also have other RSS feeds, including one for original reporting, one for our audio program, and one for our print edition. see Wikinews:Wikinews:Syndication.
- Pechorin's script has been replaced by a PHP screen-scraping script. It fixes several of the bugs in the old script and is BSD licensed. It can be adapted for any other Wiki that has a similar story list page as EN Wikinews. --Cspurrier 23:50, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
- We now have per category rss feeds linked from most portals. Bawolff 09:29, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Also Spanish Wikinews have their own, independent RSS channel.
