Linking instances don't work

I'm trying to link my tt-rss instance with a friend but it seems to not work. Everytime I insert the url and try to save the linkage tt-rss says the access key is invalid. As I understand to wiki article the linkage should be saved and tt-rss tries to connect to the instance automaticly every 6 hours.

Looks like this happened because the way tt-rss generates secret keys for various things changed a while (about a year, or more) ago and that plugin has validation for the old format.

The fact that nobody noticed tells us pretty much everything we need to know about anyone actually using this plugin. Which is understandable because its functionality is quite limited. Maybe I should just move it to attic repository.

This should remove the validation: https://tt-rss.org/gitlab/fox/tt-rss/co ... 26205b762b
