    "Google Reader doesn't currently support authentication for private feeds that require a username and password to view. Such feeds will appear to be empty or missing if you try to subscribe to them. This includes Gmail feeds."

    Not much we can do on our end. I'm sorry for the inconvenience that it may cause.

    Can you guys do this with a token like other sights do?

    bill: your problem might be the fact that the feed needs authentication.

    emuller: You can add a url token like so: http://monkeys.lighthouseapp.com/events.atom?_token=abc (Add a _token=abc GET param at the end). Create a readonly token for the account on your profile page.

    bill: I'm sure the feed need authentication. :-)

    I don't see where to create a read only token for the account, for the project or for my own profile page.

    Am I just missing it?

    So, according to: http://help.lighthouseapp.com/faqs/api/how-do-i-get-an-api-token

    It should be on my profile? If so I'm not seeing it there.

    Or would it be under our main account and not my personal login?

    emuller -- during a recent deploy, it looks like a small caching bug may have slipped into Lighthouse which causes the APU Key create option to go missing at times. We're still looking into the issue but hope to have a fix soon. Sorry about the inconvenience,
