My company uses Jive for intranet stuff. RSSOwl doesn't prompt for passwords for
"public" Jive feeds (feeds that don't require a login). As a consequence,
those feeds all have the "author" field set to the site administrator which
makes discussions hard to follow.
I can fix this by entering a password in preferences. But I have to do this
for each public feed because RSSOwl wont use the site level password for these
public feeds. This means I have to enter my password dozens of times when it
How can I make RSSOwl try the site level password for public Jive feeds?
BTW: The fact that I'm willing to go through all this is a testament to how
awesome RSSOwl is. It's really great software!
It should be ok if you do it once for the domain if the feed. Dont have to do
it for all full feed URLs.
Ah, are you saying that once I manually create the password entry in
preferences, it should "inherit" the site password when it changes? That's not
so bad. I'll report back if I get a chance to try it. Thanks!
