      Description

      We got a call from a faculty member who was trying to add an RSS news feed to his site using the standard Sakai news tool. The feed was:

      https://www.soils.org/news-media/releases/rss/

      The interface gave him this error:
      Alert: https://www.soils.org/news-media/releases/rss/ is an invalid RSS feed.

      The logs show this:

      INFO:
      initChannel(https://www.soils.org/news-media/releases/rss/) constructor:
      couldn't parse: Authentication required for that resource. HTTP
      Response code was:403

      This appears to be a valid feed when using another reader. I though maybe it was because it was https, but this one appears to work just fine:

      https://djcs.marketwatch.com/cxb/Thrivent/Content/xmlTopUS.aspx

      Tried this with a variety of browsers on both 2.6.2 and 2.7.1 and cannot get that feed to work properly.
