I'm on 1.9+, and will be on 1.9.1 tomorrow.
I have been asked to look at whether a Wiki could email out to a group each time someone updates it!
Now that might be bizarre, and I can't see the group putting up with the resulting email storm for long, but is it possible?
Is an RSS feed off a Wiki possible? Or will that come with nwiki?
I noted that the last time the email issue was raised was is 2005, and I don't think an answer was given.
I've just asked the same question on the general Moodle forum in our university, just in case they knew (they are using older versions of Moodle, afaik). And I just had a look at my email, and saw your question...
So, we are a group of teachers also interested in the answer to your question, John, since in our university some groups of research and innovation in teaching are using moodle courses as some "groupware" provided by our own institution... (and taking the advantage that some teachers not very used to other ICT tools for groupware, are already used to Moodle interface, tools, etc.... so that learning curve for them is very flat).
This is some of the reasons why up to date, many groups of teachers are using external Wiki engines for our coordination... (Tikiwiki or others)
I would imagine a setting to enable/disable this feature in a "wiki-per-wiki" basis...
RSS is probably more useful than email anyway!
Although you made your original posting nearly two years ago, we recently received a similar request from one of our staff members, e.g. is it possible to alert users to updates in a Wiki via a RSS feed or email?
Do you (or anyone reading this post) know if it's possible in Moodle 2.0? If so, do you know of where I might locate information and/or documentation on this update?
We use the OU wiki module, and yes, you can subscribe to it by RSS feed. In The OU wiki if you click on the 'wiki changes' button there is a link to the rss feed at the bottom of the page.
OU wiki is the same as the standard wiki, but better.......
Hope this helps.
The discussion about RSS and Moodle WIKIS has been going on for some time now (since 2008) and, after three upgrades ,apart from the OU, we don't seem to any nearer to a solution.
Is there some feature within Moodle's wiki program that prevents the application of an RSS feed? My colleagues and I would use wikis a lot in our curses and we would love to see an RSS feed applied so we can get an update of new postings
