Affects Version/s: 11.5 [Tentative], 12.2, 12.3, 19.0
Fix Version/s: 19.0
Component/s: News (RSS)
- add the News tool to a site (Site Info > Manage Tools > check "News" > finish the tool adding process)
- go to the News tool
- ensure the tool displays articles from https://www.sakaiproject.org/feed
When you add the News tool to a site, it has a default "URL Channel" of "http://sakaiproject.org/feed". If you leave this default as the link for the feed and go to the News tool (after adding it), you'll get the following error:
An error has occurred
No data was returned from the remote server. Please ensure the URL added is correct.
This is bad for a default.
The problem seems to be that "http://sakaiproject.org/feed" redirects in a web browser to "https://www.sakaiproject.org/feed" (note the "s" in "https" and the "www." part have been added).
Search the code base and change the cases of "http://sakaiproject.org/feed" to "https://www.sakaiproject.org/feed".
