To clarify, is it possible to use an external RSS reader to subscribe to an RSS feed of a private forum if you have access to it? Or would this only work with the RSS functionality built into a web browser that you're actively logged into the site with?
Thanks. I'm not questioning the content of the RSS feeds. I understand the content of the feed will contain the resources that the user has access to.
I'd like to know if a standalone RSS reader exists that would be able to access & authenticate to a private Xenforo forum. Since the security is coming from the web application (and not the web server), I'm assuming this won't work, right?
