[Owasp-leaders] RSS plugin for MediaWiki

Thanks, Larry. How would I try out the client-side feed? (i.e. Is there something that needs to be setup server-side so that I can embed an rss tag in the wiki text?)

I understand about even the client-side syndication making the site appear slow, but surely we can load it async in a div (or something) to mitigate the delays on pageload. I'll poke around with it if you get me pointed in the right direction.

Two things. The RSS feed reader I was referring too was server side. The
google and Twitter feeds are client side. When I was talking about slowing
down the site, The server side was causing the server to have big issues. I
would prefer to not do that again. The client side solutions are great since
the load is not on the server, but they do make the site appear to be slow.
While the javascript is fetching the feeds, the site stop loading.

As for RSS feeds of content on the OWASP site, you can already get those
feeds. The links are on the bottom left.
