Dokuwiki is smarter than I am

In a previous episode, I was moaning that I couldn't get my DokuWiki RSS feed to display using the RSS parser - it was my wetware which was not up to the job!

I'd configured this Dokuwiki to disallow any anonymous access - and the RSS generator (feed.php) was correctly showing all the items which the anonymous user was allowed to see - i.e.none!

I didn't realise this until I'd downloaded the latest stable DokuWiki and ported the hacks I've applied to it, then patched my installation - which obviously did not fix the problem.

In the meantime, I've created a new user with read access to the entire wiki - then changed my RSS wiki syntax to pass the auth details:

{{rss>http://www.mysite.com/dokuwiki/feed.php?u=anonymousRss&p=s3cr3t}}

Apologies to the DokuWiki team!
