Re: Middle-clicking on MSDN link locks up greatnews

I cannot reproduce the situation (on XP SP2), so it's a problem with your PC. Maybe a clean reinstall is the only solution to solve these lockups that you are experiencing with GN.

Re: Double entries

They should discover themselves the reason why the feed behaves that way. GreatNews and FeedDemon are widely used RSS readers so they should fix the feed. Maybe it's the fact that the feed is in Atom format, although GN or FD have no problems with other Atom feeds. Maybe you should ask them to provi...

Re: Double entries

Indeed, if the feed is updated the double entries appear. But it's not the fault of GreatNews, it's the fault of the feed. Maybe you can contact the site and tell them about that, the double posts appear also in FeedDemon, so the behavior is not limited to GN.

Re: Double entries

I checked the feed and it is displayed correctly in GN, there are no repeated entries. I have XP SP2 with GN 384.

Re: Two-column view can truncate text

The Newspaper and Firefox Sage views do indeed truncate some of the text next to images, but the Brief view does not (obviously, it does not display images at all). However, I myself never use two columns view, usually I stick with Readability, it's the best option for reading inside GreatNews.

1) Copy the installation of GN (its folder) to a portable device (USB stick). Then try to run it from the stick to see if it works and use the export wizard. I think that this could be successful, because I remember some users saying on the forum that GN is portable. If this doesn't work, try the se...

Yes, you can use news alerts. But there is no need to run the monitoring on all the feeds, given that you have a very big number of them. Maybe that would work if you had a quad-core with 4GB of RAM, otherwise the system cannot cope with the load put on the processor and memory. Group the feeds by t...

I think it was always like that. But those that don't like the many IE instances opened by GreatNews can use Maxthon 2 (based on IE) and set it as default browser. All the pages opened from GN will show up as tabs.

Of course the flickering problem can be caused by the number of feeds. I never had more than 300 feeds at the same time (now I have ony 60) so that's why I never had such a problem with GN. I don't think that the problem is the number of unread items (I have more than 3000 now). Having thousand of f...

You have a display problem with GreatNews, everyone understood that. It happens, I have a similar problem (flickering) with DC++ 0.704, which is unstable and also has other bugs. But I never had this problem with GN, nor anyone else that reads the forum. That's why I say that the problem is not caus...

It is something related to the software configuration of your system. Maybe you installed something that interferes with the functioning of GN. I myself can open any link from the news items in background tabs without any problem, either by middle click, or by Ctrl+Click. You can try to verify my hy...

I really cannot reproduce the bug with the Slashdot feed. I used middle click on three different stories as you said and they loaded in seconds, without GN crashing. I have a 3 Mbps connection so it's not a surprise, but the bug doesn't appear. I even click on the tabs as the pages are downloading a...

No, the option set to interactively is not the cause of the bug. I have it also and the problem does not appear. There is no option to disable the cleaning of the database. Of course you may choose to uncheck all the feeds in the cleaning wizard, so the downloaded news items could stay indefinitely....

No, I think it is not a known issue, but the developer should know better. I tried to reproduce the bug and I used a feed with hundreds of new items. GreatNews does not crash while I scroll the news items with the down or up arrow key. So maybe it is something wrong with your system. You did not men...
