I'm working on a project to check many weblogs at once through their RSS feeds. I'm working on trying to get LiveJournals 'friends only' entries to show up in the RSS. Auth=digest isn't working with magpie, my feed parser. I thought XML would be a better way to login and see things only allowed for authenticated users, but it seems there is nothing I can do in relation to RSS to get the friends only feeds from any user.

Any ideas?

Note: I think I've got a PHP XML login page working. I have been trying like mad to find something that would work for me in PHP. My only proof is this response:

Array (
[userid] => 314159265...
[fullname] => myfullname
[friendgroups] =>
Array ( )
[usejournals] =>
Array (
[0] => community1
[1] => community2
[2] => lj_clients
)
)

Does this mean I'm logged in?

My apologies if this isn't 'client' enough for this community. From what I have read, the dev community doesn't seem as applicable for this problem. (and their explinations of anything are really confusing!)

hmm

2) sounds like a workable option, my only question would be how to generate a cookie on my server without my client needing it?

Thanks for putting it simply :)

Re: hmm

I've actually found a modified snoopy.class.inc for magpie that handles http auth digest! its on my site at:
