I’m looking to get a s2members protected podcast feed working in iTunes.
I’ve followed this very useful post
and the video tutorial for s2Member® File Downloads (Remote Auth/Podcasting)
I’ve managed to build a simple xml feed using the one Jason Caldwell has so kindly built in the first link above and saved both the xml and test file in the /s2member-files/ folder
I was able to subscribe to the xml feed in iTunes but could not get the file to download.
I verified Remote Authorization in a browser and the file could be accessed fine.
I finally found that the issue was wordpress multisite as I was using site.com/en/ and not the main site.com
To solve the issue I first set up s2member on the site.com but this wasn’t enough.
I also had to create a user on site.com with s2member access to the file.
to get a protected feed to work on iTunes if you have a multisite installation with site.com/en
1. setup s2member on site.com
2. register the users of site.com/en also on site.com
3. make sure that the user has an active membership to access the file (I tested this requirement by removing s2member level 1 access and the file would not be downloaded)
Is there a way to get this feature to work without having to set up s2member on the main site and without having to manually register and activate all users on the main site?
