Password needed to view atom feed

I have a before_filter in the controller where the atom feed is coming
from. I want it to check the password when entering that area but not
when a user wants to view the rss feed. Is there a way I can use the
:except here? It’s the before_filter on index that makes this happen.

Is the RSS feed generated within the index action?
I tend to find that if I’m exposing a feed, it usually contains the
same info as the index action (although I might have to hide some
links from non-authenticated users)
Therefore, I can just do :except => :index

If you need to keep index locked down, move your feed to a feed action
and expose that using :except => :feed
