#18384 closed enhancement (fixed)

Remove the old root feed files

Reported by: nacin's profile nacin Owned by: nacin's profile nacin

These files can all go:

  • wp-feed.php
  • wp-rss2.php
  • wp-rss.php
  • wp-atom.php
  • wp-commentsrss2.php
  • wp-rdf.php

We can keep them in the rewrite rules (in compressed form) and then catch them in canonical, and continue to redirect them there.

Additionally, we will not add these files to $_old_files, so they won't be removed on upgrade. Of course, they are safe to remove, but it'll minimize breakage of lame use of these files.
