Want to be notified when a page on this Wiki changes? It's easy.
At the top of every page is a Watch tab.
- Login to wiki.secondlife.com .
- Go to a page you want to watch.
- Click the Watch link.
Updates appear on your My watchlist page, whose link is always shown towards the top-right of the page. You can watch as many pages as you'd like.
The Wiki also offers to inform you via e-mail when a page on your watchlist is changed. To activate this feature, proceed as follows:
- Access your Preferences.
- Enter a valid e-mail in the E-mail field.
- Check the E-mail me when a page on my watchlist is changed checkbox.
- Click the Save button.
- You'll receive an e-mail — check your spam folder to ensure it doesn't get lost — awaiting your confirmation. Afterwards, you'll receive a notification for each change to a page on your watchlist.
|Note: You'll only be informed of changes which aren't flagged as a "minor" edit. Minor edits are usually corrections in spelling and similar. Checking E-mail me also for minor edits of pages also informs you about those.|
RSS & Atom
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) and Atom (Atom Publishing Protocol) let you subscribe to a page. They have technical differences but the end benefit is the same: updates appear in a "feed" which is automatically refreshed.
On any regular Wiki page, there's a History tab link on top of the page. Clicking it leads you to the article's revision history. In a supported web browser like Firefox 3.5, you can see an RSS icon () in the location bar. For example, for this page, it's
https://wiki.secondlife.com/w/index.php?title=Subscribe&feed=rss&action=history. Click that icon to get the page's RSS link. You can bookmark this or add it to a feed reader.
If you're an info-holic, you can also subscribe to the feed of all changes on the Second Life Wiki. To do so, browse to Special:RecentChanges and proceed as before. Or look in the Toolbox on the bottom of the sidebar, which displays links for RSS and Atom.
