    I am just curious why the Facebook sharer for Medscape links work - it can scrape the image and content whereas trying to use BP Activity plus to share a Medscape link e.g.
    http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/821982?src=rss
    ends up with :

    Apache Tomcat - Error report
    http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/821982?src=rss
    type Status report

  2. Hi there @Palmdoc,

    Hope you're well today, interesting, when I visit that link it's protected and requires a login (the rss feed link), which could be why BP Activity plus is having a issue here.

    I'll check with the lead developer for you :)

    Thanks!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.

  3. Hi there,

    I've spoken with the lead developer and he's confirmed that as the content is protected, BuddyPress activity plus won't be able to get the content I'm afraid.

    Kind Regards
    Jack.

    Thanks. I wonder how Facebook does it though ? If one is already logged in to the site on the same browser I wonder if there is a work around
