Is there a way to exclude wikipages from the RSS feed? Such as permission-restricted pages (like pages that have permissions set to allow only a subset of people to access)?


We'd love to see that as well, both to allow us to restrict access to pages with restricted access (;O) and to prevent the feed from noting auto-generated pages.

Something like the following change to RSSGenerator would do the trick, though an additional check for secured pages would also be nice:
    protected String generateFullWikiRSS( WikiContext wikiContext, Feed feed )
        feed.setChannelTitle( m_engine.getApplicationName() );
        feed.setFeedURL( m_engine.getBaseURL() );
        feed.setChannelLanguage( m_channelLanguage );
        feed.setChannelDescription( m_channelDescription );

        Collection changed = m_engine.getRecentChanges();

// get the pages users have explicitly excluded from the feed
        Collection dontFeed = m_engine.getReferenceManager().findRefersTo("ExcludeFromRSSFeed");
        int items = 0;
        for( Iterator i = changed.iterator(); i.hasNext() && items < 15; items++ )
            WikiPage page = (WikiPage) i.next();

// ...and exclude them            
            if (dontFeed.contains(page.getName()))
