I've never heard of sessions being used with RSS feeds, but that doesn't mean it's not possible. Just that I don't know! My inclination is that you shouldn't use sessions with RSS feeds, however, as you wouldn't have a login system. If authentication is required, that could be indicated via a header value as part of the RSS request.

Here is what I did...


I added a value into the url link to the rss feed script.  (rss.php?x=somevalue). 

The rss.php script checks the value in the url using if(isset($_GET['x'])) against a value in the database. (Learned this in a book by Larry Ullman).  


Also checks out as valid rss when submitted to feedvaliator.com.


Do not need it to be super secure.


Thank you
