Wikka RSS feeds

A small modification to header.php allows Wikka feeds to be 'autodiscovered' by most feed readers and now also by some browsers supporting this mechanism.

Add the following lines after the stylesheet-related lines in actions/header.php:

if ($this->GetMethod() != 'edit') {
    $rsslink  = '   <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="'.$this->GetWakkaName().': revisions for '.$this->tag.' (RSS)" href="'.$this->Href('revisions.xml', $this->tag).'" />'."\n";
    $rsslink .= '   <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="'.$this->GetWakkaName().': recently edited pages (RSS)" href="'.$this->Href('recentchanges.xml', $this->tag).'" />'."\n";
    echo $rsslink;

Feed readers with autodiscovery include (in alphabetical order):
