Adding RSS-feed

Postby ruppo » Wed Mar 02, 2011 2:51 pm

Hi!

When I try to add an RSS-feed to the Download Station it says "The RSS file is empty or invalid", but if I paste the link in the browser it fills up with alot of entries. How come?

My RSS is from a site behind login but the link contains a passkey and everything, so it should work? Am I doing anything wrong when I add the feed?

The RSS feed could be requiring authentication. Try to make sure you are logged out from that site and then paste the URL into your browser to see if it still works.
Clear cache first after your log out ;)

If it isn't protected, then maybe there's a bug ;P

The address to the feed contains a passkey, so I don't needed to authenticate. That's how it works in uTorrent. Because of the passkey I don't need to login or authenticate myself. So it seems like there is a bug here, or doesn't the RSS-reader in the download center supports those kind of feeds?

Maybe it is similar to this: viewtopic.php?f=169&t=34611 ??

I've had problems with it recognising it first time on the ok click. I'd suggest pasting it in, clicking ok then on the error message clicking ok. Doing this a few times caused my rss feed to add with similar problems.
