1. Hey Guest !

    Welcome to the new Higherside Forums. To start participating, you'll need a password for the system. You can get one established by clicking the "forgot password" link, and a URL to create one will be sent to your THC+ email. Your username should be the same, but these are now two independent systems. As a result, changes to your THC+ username/password will not be reflected in your THC Forum username and vise versa. Also, as a bonus, your ability to participate in the forums will continue beyond the life of your THC+ membership.

    Enjoy the upgrade! Users can now make a full profile, start conversations (private messages) between each other, give and track likes, utilize trophies, conduct polls, write public statuses, comment on statuses of others, subscribe to forums, receive alerts, see latest activity, share media, and much more!

    Hi,
    I'm having trouble adding plus to Pocket Cast on android. I would really appreciate a walk through on how to do this. Thanks.

    Hey, I had the same problem, and just solved. From the help section of the app:

    Private and paid podcast feeds
    Pocket Casts does not formally support password protected feeds. In some cases, you may be able to embed your username and password into the feed using this format:


    http://[username]:[password]@[feed]


    Once you have formed the new URL, you can add it to Pocket Casts by pasting it in here: https://pocketcasts.com/submit. Don’t worry your feed will be kept private and never appear in search results and other places. It’s just for you. You can use the short URL you get back to quickly add it to the app.


    If your feed is a private Patreon feed, you can also paste it in here: https://pocketcasts.com/submit

    -----

    So, since this is a pain in the butt, just replace your username and pass here:

    https://USER:PASS@www.thehighersidechats.com/feed/thc-plus

    then paste the above on that web site. You will get another short URL, which you then paste on the search section of Pocket Casts.

    Lots of copy / paste, but it works.

    @brngrc, great walk-through! Thanks! This should be added to the FAQ. One question, is the username my email? That's what I use to log into plus, but it seems like it wouldn't work with the url syntax because of the @. If not, is there a way to look up my username?

    Thanks, but it is mostly from the Help section of the app :)

    But I agree it should be on the FAQ, it would have saved me almost an hour to find all this..

    The username is your user for the THC site, the one you logon with, not the email. Password is also the login information from THC
