If im understanding correctly, the feeds should work if you set the proxy in wordpress. The webserver should then fetch via the proxy so it should work ok.
Sorry if i didnt understand
Hi, bit of a problem I'm trying to get my head around here....
Wordpress installed on our webserver (running server 2k3 and XAMPP). Inside school the BBC News RSS feed I put in the sidebar can't load. I can put the proxy settings into the wp-config.php file so it works in school but I can imagine that the feed will refuse to load outside school then as it can't find the proxy... haven't had chance to test this yet but I can imagine it will be the case.
The web server has the administrative policy in lightspeed if that's at all relevant.
Any ideas? I really could use the feeds to work in and out of school.
Anyone outside of the Birmingham Grid who wouldn't mind checking.... http://www.arthurterry.bham.sch.uk/sixthform/blog/
The News Feed should be the last one in the sidebar on the right.

Works fine - as someone said, your webserver is doing the fetching, so it will need to go via your proxy, and that won't affect users no matter where they browse from.
