Can someone else try this?

I have created two feeds with NukeFeed: forums and news. I go to the feed module, click subscribe, and then click the add to google button. A box is added to my iGoogle page, but after a week or so, the feed still hasn't shown up there. Instead it just says: Information is temporarily unavailable.

I've noticed the link that gets sent to Google is of the form:
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

If I manually add the link Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! to the Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! (which is different than iGoogle), I see the feed. So it looks like a google issue. But just wanted to hear if others got their feeds to work on iGoogle. Thanks.

I have added two feeds from my site, forums and news. Both are using the ShortLinks url's i.e Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
iGoogle accepted them without a problem.

When I go to my iGoogle homepage though, I can see the url's to the feed's in two seperate boxes as I would expect and in the header of thos boxes, the ulr's are correctly formatted.
Only thing is see for 'data' though is a message saying "Information is temporarily unavailable". Sad

That's interesting, I think we might need montego and kguske to look at this oddity...
I just went back to NS to see which pages were being accessed by iGogles and FeedFetcher and it gives me this
feeds-5.html
This means iGoogle is trying to access Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! which although a valid url is actually a webpage not a feed (at least according to the W3C validator Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

I think it should be feeds-5.xml instead of .html.

Hm thats interesting as feeds-5.xml is an invalid uri (404) I think I may need to check my htaccess directives as I may have some hybrid cross RN version mix.

I'm not positive, but I remember discussing with Montego using .xml or something like that for the short url for a feed. The feed itself might be something like feedsrss20-5.xml or something else to indicate what format to use.

Yes you are right!
What can I say, was suffering from user error?
Here is how I got it to work.
Click your sites Feed link which should take you to the page from which you can subscribe to specific feeds.
Instead of using the +Google icon, use the RSS 2.0 icon and when the page refreshes, that's the url to paste into iGoogles 'add content' page.

Yes, I think to avoid any possible confusion between 'Google' (bookmark) we should add an iGoogle icon but I just had a look and as they are using AJAX it is impossible to identify a URL so as to be able to pass something in the uri string.

Maybe we can add it to the 'to do' list if/when someone has the time to dive into Googles API
