Private feed

Reported by: DotMG Owned by: DotMG
Priority: normal Milestone: blue-sky
Component: unspecified Version:
Severity: minor Keywords: rss


To let people use online services like Google Reader to manage RSS feeds, cookies should not be used to identify them in that case.

Wikka should propose a private feed, where credential is encoded in URL.

1) The URL may include the username in plain, and any checksum to test its validity

2) if valid, this should log in TEMPORARILY the user, to allow the engine to feed all private informations. Make sure to not use cookies for that temporary login.

3) if invalid, write in the feed an error message (Your private feed link has expired)

4) Give the option to invalidate a private feed URL (in case someone else has discovered it...)
