  • Updates to support PHP 8+
  • Check for http scheme in the $notify_url, add it if missing
  • Only output the cloud element when we are in a feed – the rss2_head hook also runs for exports


  • Use wp_safe_remote_*() functions for HTTP requests
  • Use openssl_random_pseudo_bytes() ( when available ) instead of mt_rand() when generating tokens


  • Limit domain characters


  • Add support for the domain parameter in notification requests
  • Notification requests that include a domain parameter use HTTP GET that
    inlcudes a challenge field that must be returned exactly as is in the body
    of the response
  • Separate out the code for scheduling notifications and sending
    notifications, making it easier to replace just one or the other
  • Only update notification URL details if something in the full
    loop has changed
  • Add an optional parameter to rsscloud_send_post_notifications()
    for the rss2_url that was updated
  • Add do_action() calls for certain events
  • Provide a failure response for update requests for any feed URL
    that isn’t the feed URL for the blog
  • Accept any 2xx HTTP status code for notifications
  • Use RSSCLOUD_FEED_URL constant for the blog feed URL if it is defined
