Working on a Widget · Tuesday May 20, 2008 by Crosbie Fitch

I’m currently creating a ‘special page’ MediaWiki extension that will enable users to enter the URL of a web page and then select one of their RSS feeds on it that they’d like a widget generated for.

The code for the widget is then generated and they can copy it to then paste on their website. Their readers can then click on it to subscribe (wishing to pay a penny per post). Remember, no commission is charged.

It’d be good to get this special page using Ajax, but to save time I’ll probably leave its form based interaction operating via http post. Once I’ve published the source code to the first version of this MediaWiki extension, I guess others might even fancy producing an Ajax version.
