Quick Permission Questions Regarding RSS Feed


Active member
These are perhaps stupid questions but I couldn't find a definitive answer to them anywhere so I thought it would be prudent to check before I post anything on my forum :)

  • Does the RSS feed only show the latest threads that unregistered members (guests) can see?
  • If not, are private forum rooms and those exclusive to admin and moderators excluded from the feed?

It uses the permissions of the currently logged in user. Guests see guest items. Admins see admin items. etc.

OK. So that means that social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter that pull the feed will simply see what guests see.

Thanks for clarifying :)
