This started out as a simple proof of concept but may be a bug. I have added 3 RSS Viewer web parts to a page with the following URLs
and everything works perfectly / each part renders as expected. I then added each of these URLs to a links list and then added the links list web part to the page. I selected one of the RSS Viewer parts, chose connections -> “Get Feed URL
from” -> “Links List” and then chose URL as the connection field. What is happening is that the SharePoint Team Blog link works great, the MSDN link throws a SecurityException and the Yahoo link does nothing (no error in the log
and nothing displayed). I tried this on two different servers on different network & ISPs both with no firewalls in the way. This appears to be an issue with how the web part handles a connection compared to the straight web part property.
Any thoughts or someone else verifying the issue on their server would be appreciated.
