@metalkramp it sounds like it may be easier for you to only use tags in this case, and use a custom plugin to display certain tags as if they are categories.
GETing posts in categories that are only accessable to certain groups?
I'm writing a bot that GETs a specific post from a category on my forum, and this category is only accessable by admins. Only problem is, GETting that post always returns a 401 Not Authorized response, because it's not open to users.
I've tried using auth=(username, password), Authorization: Bearer, even sending it in the GET params, but they all just return 401.
Any way of doing this?
