    SitePoint RSS Feeds Problem

    Quite often, I see RSS feed items in my list, yet I am unable to view them. For example, the Recent Posts RSS feed has an entry here. Yet when I click on it, I get the following page:

    vinyl-junkie, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    blah blah blah
    Updating my feed items list doesn't make it go away either. Is there something wrong with the way the code is setup for generating the RSS feed? If this thread has been moved to a private forum for moderators only, why continue to list it in the RSS feed?

    What's the URL of the feed your using?

    The thread you linked to was removed, which is why your getting the Permissions Error. The thread still exists though. I suspect that the feed is either including posts from forums you can't view (hence the permissions error on that thread) or doesn't handle posts being moved out of public forums very well.

    Not the first time this has happened in some shape or form. For example, there was a time when you could get search results from forums you didn't have access to.

    My overall impression has been that a lot of care is required to maintain privileges in vBulletin. Or conversely, privileges are not very intuitive to implement in vBulletin.

    The latter is most likely correct. This isn't the first RSS feed from SitePoint that I've run into this for. I just thought I should call it to someone's attention.
