RSS Feed

I'm suggesting we link with an RSS feed from an automotive news website like Autoblog or Jalopnik. In that way, I think we could keep this website up to date with the latest information regarding model changes, new model introductions, concept cars and the industry in general. Other contributors could then be able to create an article about it when contributors like me aren't available. We could put the feed on the front page or some other dedicated page with a link to the main page (we could even put it here in Garage Talk), the main caveat is that it has that link to the home page so that other users or visitors would not miss it. I really think it would prove very useful. What do you think? Is it even possible to put a feed on a page?

Here is a link to a couple of pages with various rss feeds related to cars:

What's with this event? :?

IMPORTANT NEWS! Wikicars is getting an upgrade! We'll be migrating to MediaWiki version 1.10.0 tonight 6/20/07 at 11:00 Pacific. We hit a small snag with the upgrade last night and reverted back...Should have it completed tonight.

I'm confused. Invader Car (Talk to me please! + Go to the Edit Cafe! + Sign here in this page!) 01:10, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

I'd like to know, just exactly what do we get out of this upgrade? Are there any new features we could exploit? Red marquis 01:40, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
Here's a link to the new features and bug fixes that are part of the 1.10 release[1]. Doesn't look like much in the way of cool new features. The primary reason for upgrade is to pickup bug fixes, security patches and performance enhancements. Carguy11:13, 22 June 2007
