Make RSS Default Consistent

Reported by: filosofo Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.8
Component: Feeds Keywords: has-patch

Currently get_default_feed() returns rss2 (RSS 2.0), but get_the_category_rss() has as default "rss--i.e. RSS 0.92--as the default.

Also, if you request "rss," either by /?feed=rss or /feed/rss/, the response is in RSS 0.92 format. To get RSS 2.0 you either have to request rss2 specifically or feed=feed.

Since RSS 2.0 is what you get from get_default_feed(), and because it's newer and has more features than RSS 0.92, it seems to me that default "rss" (?feed=rss or /feed/rss/) should be RSS 2.0, not 0.92 as it is now.

The attached patch:

  • Makes "rss" RSS 2.0
  • Lets you specify RSS 0.92 with rss092
  • Makes the default value for get_the_category_rss() be whatever get_default_feed() returns

I am going to attach a new patch that fixes get_the_category_rss and the_category_rss within next minute. However, I don't want to have rss092 as I really want to have it removed. Please refer to http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4967#comment:11 for details.

Replying to Denis-de-Bernardy:

shouldn't we change the default directly?

Do you mean that you want to hard-code "rss2" to the functions?

#8 @peaceablewhale

However, the default feed format can be changed by admin using a plugin. I think the user's preferred format should be the default.

Was mostly asking for reference (both make sense to me).
