Hi. Before Wikia introduced individual answers wikis and replaced Monaco, the anime wikis were linked to Wikianswers Anime via a sidebar widget. This allowed you to type a question into a box and it was sent to Wikianswers Anime. We set up a template that would achieve the same effect with the intention of asking the anime wikis (that don't have their own answers site) to add it their site. We need a bit of help with getting it to filter what the 5 latest questions are. As wikis prefer that it not show questions from other series, we want to filter the latest questions by category (each anime has its own category on WA). Anything I try seems to give me the error "Failed to load RSS feed from...". Does anyone know a way of filtering it by category or have suggestions for an alternative? ~~Ууp <talk> 16:18, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

You probably have to ask Wikia to add category filtering to <activityfeed>. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Jan 2012 6:22 PM Pacific
FYI, you may want to look at Template:WoW_Answers_widget on WoWWiki for an example of how to make a question box on non-answers wikis that point to and create questions on an answers wiki. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Jan 2012 6:30 PM Pacific
