    Default Add forum link to Bulbanews feed

    Would be nifty.

    For Atom, could do something like:

    Code:
    <link rel="comments" type="text/html" href="http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/showthread.php?t=72147"/>

    Agreed.

    Feel free to code it.

    I don't know how. Maybe Zhen would.

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Create a template draft in your userspace, for example at User:Zekurom/TemplateName, and (if it mucks around with parameters) test it on the talk page, for example at User talk:Zekurom/TemplateName.

    Chances are, the staff will see it. If not, feel free to leave a message on someone's talk page. If you can work out which Board Member or Project Leader oversees that area, they're probably a good start. Otherwise pick someone who you know to be "around".

    And ^^^that thing wouldn't be a template, as immewnity said. It'd be something coded into Bulbanews itself. But I think it's a good idea, Eevee. If anyone can pull it off.

    Right, so it's not a template, then. I mean, included into the current template we have for the articles.

    And my username on the Bulbawikis is '''Ztobor''', not ''Zekurom''.

    (Whoops. ^_^)
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Does that look like a template to you?

    This is hard to do.

    No, but that wouldn't be a template in the first place.

    If someone can implement this, it would be pretty cool. I'm sort of surprised this hasn't already been done.

    That's because it's practically impossible, if I understand how Garden News works.

    I don't believe it's that hard really. The current feed seems to be able already to read values from the Article template (specifically, the blurb text) and to include it in the feed item titles. Similarly, it should be able to read the discusstype and discusslink values.

    I'll see if I can ask Zhen.

    EDIT: Zhen said it's possible, but he doesn't have the time to do so.
