Set up RSS Feed for Private Posts - Possible? (6 posts)

  1. I am trying to figure out if it's possible to set up an RSS feed for a category that consists entirely of posts set to Private status.

    So far the RSS feed for the private category stays blank, even when viewing the feed in a browser where I'm logged in and authenticated as a user who is permitted to view Private posts.

    Does anyone know of any workarounds or plug-ins?

    I found the Private Feed Keys plug-in, but it says it works up to 3.1.4 and seems to be intended only for multisite installations.

    Thanks!

    p.s. the goal here is for registered users to be notified when there is a new post. If I can't get RSS working, then a plug-in which allows the blog owner to email registered users such as Email Users could be a workaround. Open to other suggestions.

    I found this question looking for the same thing...

    Not sure if this is what you were looking for but it worked for my scenario:

    (I believe this is related to the multi-site plugin which you referred to)

  3. Thanks for replying to this old post! Did this plug-in work with version 3.3? Says it's only compatible up to 2.6.2 and is over 3 years old, so I was skeptical at the time and went for the "Email Users" workaround instead. Did you install it on a multisite network, or standalone install?

    It seems to be working fine on my 3.3 standalone install - I've not tested it extensively but I'll post here again should anything crop up.

    Just found the development log:

    I don't experience any of the issues listed - my only concern would be the SQL injection.

  6. Thanks for all the info, appreciated! Hope it continues to work smoothly for you.
