Apple Discussion Forum RSS Feed Failure

Post by Hoff »

The Apple Discussion boards have been updated yesterday, and Vienna isn't processing the RSS feeds from the RSS URLs used for the new forum system.

Here is one of the (new?) (failing) feed URLs:

https://discussions.apple.com/community ... unity=2109

Add this feed into Vienna, try to refresh it to load the articles, and the yellow warning triangle of failure visits.

These feeds do operate and articles do fetch within the Apple Mail RSS client, and do also verify as being mostly valid with various and sundry errors.

Versions: Mac OS X client 10.6.7, with Vienna 2.5.0.2501

No errors in the console logs related to this refresh and this failure, and nothing from Vienna2 other than the usual ...uk.co.opencommunity.vienna2[248] objc[248]: Class SUHost is implemented in both /Applications/Vienna.app/Contents/MacOS/.. /Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Versions/A/Sparkle and /Users/hoff/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ClickToFlash.webplugin/Contents/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Sparkle. One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.

Yes, I have Click-to-Flash installed, and it's not newly installed. And (on the off chance Sparkle was off the rails) I've verified the running version matches the current download version.

Sigh. Apple is blocking Vienna.

Code: Select all

$ curl --user-agent 'Vienna/2.5.0.2501' 'https://discussions.apple.com/community/feeds/allcontent?community=2109'
<HTML><HEAD>
<TITLE>Access Denied</TITLE>
...

Code: Select all

$ curl 'https://discussions.apple.com/community/feeds/allcontent?community=2109'

Please complain to Apple about this, it's ridiculous.

Looks to have been cleared. Vienna is successfully pulling RSS from Apple Communities this morning.

Entirely unrelated to the base thread, phpBB is tossing these errors in the Safari browser in the posting Save path:
