Gaining access to RSS feeds
RSS authentication issue
We run a closed forum but would love to be able to access the RSS content from several boards to promote our user community on our website.
Has anyone got a solution to gaining access to an password secured rss feed from a news reader.
Thanks as ever.
Has there been any progress on this? If @psychobunny or @julianlam has any insights on how this might be achieved, I'd be open to writing my own plugin or better yet, integrating the authentication of the existing write-api plugin into RSS feeds so we could pass a user token in the get request for the rss feed.
I believe this is supported now: https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues/5740
@pitaj Thanks for that link. Looks like exactly what I was looking for. I can't seem to find the users RSS tokens though? They aren't in their account info or anywhere else :(
Nevermind. I found it. You have to visit a feed to find it and it only works with topic or category feeds, not the "recent" feed. I can work with this tho. Thanks @PitaJ
