RSS feed for Off Topic board?

Unread post by doofy » 2019-11-09, 19:03

I had an enforced absence earlier this year, and when I returned whatever changes were made to rss broke my rss reader.
Whatever - it was old.
So I switched to bamboo-feedreader which works fine. I'm curious as to whether the 10 new posts limit per board is down to you - I suspect it is since I see it in both bamboo and live bookmarks. But I'd welcome clarification.

Anyways - Off Topic board. Live bookmarks tells me it has an rss feed, and shows the feed.
But I can't get it to work in bamboo and don't know why.
I've tried:
https://forum.palemoon.org/app.php/feed/forum/66; and I've tried:
https://doofy:PW@forum.palemoon.org/app.php/feed/forum/66
Don't work. And I don't know if this is me being thick or uninformed, or using crap software, or is your pref.

One. You DO have to be authenticated to read the off-topic board. TWO. The forum does not use basic authentication so user:password@host urls won't work.

Three. I know a way to do it but I am not gonna tell you.
