[resolved] Accessing Private - Password Protected Feeds (3 posts)

    Hi there...great plugin!

    Is there any way of accessing feeds which require a password? I do have the user name and password for a couple of private feeds but there is nowhere that I can see to enter these under "Feeds" in the plugin.

    Neither private feeds accept: http://username:password@domain/path

    Thanks!

    Hello
    Are you able to put the RSS feed with the credentials in a url string..and if so, are you able to view the results in a browser or some other RSS reader?

    No, the url string with user and password does not work with these feeds in browsers or in readers that I can see. I suppose I could use one of the various online tools or something on a server to read the private feed and then create a "semi-private" feed from the content for use with the plug-in but I am pretty sure that would not be appreciated.

    Thanks for the quick response!
