When you try and use the RSS feed in IE, It reports a java script error when you pull down the menu, and never updates the RSS feed link. In Firefox it doesn't really give any errors, but the feeds still return nothing?
<<It reports a java script error>>
The actual error message would be really useful......
Error code from IE:
Message: 'document.rssform.auth.value' is null or not an object
It looks like the original RSS code tried to enable http authentication. It didn't work, and some of the broken code wasn't removed.
Need to delete the couple of references to the auth element in blocks/rss_block.php
Ok so I got off my but and fixed the RSS feed.
First trimmed the blocks/rss_block.php to remove the broke auth script,
then saw that /rss.php was missing a query parser, so i added the following at line 69 (in rss.php):
if ( isset($_GET['module']) && $_GET['module'] != "" )
$module = $_GET['module'];
Also changes the '$SERVER_URL' Var to the new PGV_SERVER_NAME . PGV_SCRIPT_PATH
New filed attached. :)
The Differential file attached shows what i changed to get RSS working 85% (It works great for IE, just not my black berry yet!) I added an extra feed for upcoming birthdays, & if you get the RSS link while your logged in it will allow you to see the birthdays & other upcoming dated after you log out, (and from other devices)
Once you add the RSS block to your page, you will actually get the feed you choose.
You should probably change the key $IsIn in Rss_block and Function_rss to improve security, as I did after posting this.

This works great! no issued with any RSS programs that I tested. The feeds it creates has been validated from the W3C Feed Validation Service!
Tested in Firefox, IE 8, Feedreader 3.14, & Blackberry News Feeds.
