This question about Installation of Foswiki: Answered

New Installation not generating RSS feeds

We installed Foswiki this week using the current version. I wanted to subscribe to an RSS feed for one of the webs and found there was no data being generated. I tried all the webs and all the feeds I could find - including atom and again no data.

I'm reasonably sure it is a configuration issue - probably rights for writing data or something but I'm not sure where to look. Anyone have any suggestions?


The RSS feed is a search page and custom template.

Each web should have a WebRss topic. This topic has some header markup, and an include for the System WebRssBase topic. The WebRssBase topic has the search macros that expand into the RSS feed.

If you upgraded an existing wiki, you will need to copy the WebRss.txt file from the _default web into the converted webs.
