Documentation for get_feed_meta()? (2 posts)

    I would love to be able to pull from the default keys from FeedWordPress's get_feed_meta() template tag. I noticed mention of link/name, but I'd particularly like to know what the keys are for the Short Description and Homepage values on the Feeds setup page. There's some information here, but

    I would assume these show up in phpmyadmin, but I'm apparently not savvy enough to figure it out!

    I got this reply by email from the author today, but I'm misunderstanding what it would take for me to echo the "Short Description" and "Homepage" values. Currently, only echo get_feed_meta('link/name') will do anything.

    The list of reserved setting names can change depending on your setup -- specifically, add-ons can add to it if they have their own feed-level settings that they use. But if you just want to get a quick look at the default list of reserved setting names (what will be treated as reserved in the absence of any add-ons to alter it), you can find that by pulling up feeds-page.php from your FWP directory and searching for the line:

    var $special_settings = array ( /* Regular expression syntax is OK here */

    Note that in addition to the normal special settings, there are also some open-ended reserved namespaces that are indicated by regular expressions. So, for example, not only "link/name" is reserved, but in fact anything beginning with "link/" -- this is the space in which FWP stores a number of meta-data items about the subscription for easy retrieval. Similarly, the "feed/.*" namespace is used to store the contents of feed-level elements from the last successful update. Etc.
