Password protected feeds

Postby Allunreal » Wed Oct 10, 2018 7:35 am

Hello Vienna
-
I'm using your RSS reader since some time back, good work !
-
The fact some feeds are password protected seems to be accounted for in Vienna : the "get info" tab has login & password featured. However, despite correct information in these fields (login, password) the private feed i'm trying to access won't show.
-
The feed i'm testing is a password protected WP site* (username, login) so i am wondering if it is Vienna that needs to be told that the feed is a password-protected feed in the adress field or if Vienna would recognise a private feed from the get-go or not. Normally - it would be practical if any password protected would prompt a login/password popo-up screen like the "get info" panel as this already features login/password capabilities.
-
Is Vienna capable of dealing with password protected RSS feeds, and if so : how is this feature best set-up* ?

*would a password-protected feed need some additional information in the feed address when adding a feed ?
-
*are there known issues with password protected WP site feeds ?
