Clicking the Feeds icon on the Admin Panel (See Tiki Config ), takes you to the Feeds (RSS) settings.
This panel can be used to control the RSS feeds that Tiki generates on-the-fly as they are requested. RSS feeds can be used to syndicate different aspects of your Tiki web site to other web sites. In this panel you can enable/disable feeds and you can control the maximum number of items that will be generated for each feed.

Otherwise with this setting and if no login information is provided , a login popup will be displayed. This will log you in tikiwiki.
Warning: For this last case, as it is an http authentication, if the user logs out from tikiwiki, il will not be logged from the feed view until he closes his browser or window.
Permissions like tiki_p_wiki_view_ref, tiki_p_blog_post_view_ref, tiki_p_blog_view_ref ... can also be useful for a site that needs to be log-in to see the objects but where the feed can be seen by anonymous
