    You know, they maybe want the XML capabilities for an RSS feed. If the XML file already exists you’ll be just fine! XML files are, by design, and by function, human readable.

    Do they work exclusively on WordPress?

    from my experience, many recruiters tend to just list every possible web technology in job postings, whether they’re actually relevant to the job or not.

    don’t let that list discourage you from applying. chances are only half of those “requirements” are legitimate.
