I am not familiar with RSS and not sure if this is similar or different to the problem reported further down the forum.

I added the RSS Widget to our Guild's News Page at and pointed to to get Paragon Studio's City of Heroes newsfeed.  Data displays, but when I click on a news item the web page is unreachable.  After a few days I thought I would check again and I continue to get the message.  However, when I added the RSS to a Windows Widget it works fine and I could click the news links to open the full news stories. 

I have tested on Safari and IE and it never connects.  I have tried from two home computers and mobile device, but the links never connects in the web browsers.  I do not see any options to really configure the RSS feed any further.  I thought the problem might be on Paragon Studios end, but the hyper links work fine from Windows widget. 

Thank You!

I have the opposite problem. It's not external RSS's that are not showing on our guild page, but OUR guild feed that's not showing in Google Reader. It may be the 'Authenticated RSS' that's breaking, not sure yet. I'll post an item that's public, and see if that shows up in the reader...
