We have a corporate web site accessible over the net and we plan to use JForum and are evaluating it. All forums need to be restricted to employees, so they have to login first.

In this case can our employees subscribe to RSS feeds? In other words are RSS feeds available for restricted forums?

If you take the example of Atlassian Confluence (maybe JIRA also) you can use a URL in your RSS reader like this:

http://www.jforum.net/rss/forums.page?username=yourname&password=yourpassword

Do let me know if possible, we would really like this feature - let me know if I should raise a JIRA request.

Yes, you can add it to jira. However, passwing the password as plain text in the url doesn't sound that good to me. Any ideas are very welcome
