Support Topic RSS Feeds (wp.org) for new plugins (4 posts)

    Whenever I add a plugin I like to subscribe to an RSS feed for the support forums to see anybody needs help but for some reason they're acting up.

    If I try to add http://wordpress.org/support/rss/plugin/stop-pinging-yourself-for-wordpress it's returning a variety of unrelated entries instead of an empty feed for plugins with no posts.

    As soon as there's a post in the suport forum, the RSS works properly.

  2. Are you adding individual feeds for new plugins, are they your plugins?

    There are a couple possible answers here.

    They're plugins I've contributed.

    If you look at an older plugin that has a support forum topic already (http://wordpress.org/support/rss/plugin/auto-copyright-1 ) you'll see that it returns a list of feed items for that plugin.

    but ... if you look at a new plugin that doesn't already have a support forum topic (http://wordpress.org/support/rss/plugin/stop-pinging-yourself-for-wordpress ) you'll see that it returns a list of unrelated RSS items.

    If I had to guess, I would say that the RSS feed function is fetching the default feed if the plugin feed is empty instead of returning nothing.

  4. Ah, okay :) there's a cool fix.


    That will show you the rss feed for any and all plugins you have access to commit code to :) no need to add individual feeds!
