Description

The included patch adds a .../feed/post/ rewrite rule that allows fetching a single post as an XML feed. Sort of a complementary to the post comments feed.

http://example.com//2007/09/04/simple-markup-test/feed/ - the post comments feed
http://example.com//2007/09/04/simple-markup-test/feed/post/ - the single post content feed

This is an interesting idea, but I can't help but wonder if it is dodging a question ;-) Is a more meaningful experience to define including the post in the comment feed as well.

Ideally, sure, but the RSS specs in particular don't provide a clean way to do that.

I went with this solution (to meet an esoteric requirement) because the only code required was on the rewrite side. I guess the general issue being solved here is: the query and feed code support this feature, but it's not exposed as a clean URL.

I tend to agree with Denis. A -1 from me. Since this ticket has been idle for 8 months and no one stepped up with more, I'm closing as wontfix.

I would say that this functionality fills an edge use case and would not be used widely. If I am wrong or you feel otherwise feel free to reopen. For the time being I think it should remain plugin territory.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
