Re: where's my database file?

Ok, I found it. I guess i'm the only one on here running vista? it's a vista thing. After installing a program, as a security measure, vista prevents programs from writing to files in the program files folder. So it creates a folder under 'User>Appdata>Local>Virtual Store> Program files> Greatnews' ...

Re: where's my database file?

You don't need to have an admin account to run GreatNews. Just unzip GreatNews into a folder, and run from there. I think you've missed what i'm trying to say & resolve. I'm not having issues running Greatnews. Ever since i migrated to Vista, the default user account is not saving the GN data i...

Re: where's my database file?

Based on those symptoms, be sure to check the "All Users" application data folder ;) It does seem like somehow it is saving in one of the application data folders (strangely)..however, i don't have an 'all users' folder as you suggested. perhaps it's a vista thing, but i have 'administrat...

Re: where's my database file?

My data is definitely being stored elsewhere from the newsfeed.db file or at least there is another newsfeed.db file stored NOT in the curio/greatnews folder. As strange as that seems. Thinking it was related to my installation, i uninstalled the program & DELETED the curio folder (all files inc...

Re: where's my database file?

there isn't greatnews or curio under application data. I've transferred my db file before a few times & it was never a problem. Strangely tough, i can't figure out where my current greatnews is storing its data if the db file in the greatnews folder is 1 month old...

Re: When can we see the next version?

i agree, greatnews is the best.

Re: change Font Size

go to program files, curiostudio, greatnews, media folder. Choose the reading style you normally use & open that .css file in notepad. Scroll down to 'storydetails' & change 'font size' to whatever you want. Greatnews is a really great program..but could use an update. Something like this sh...

Unread news items not showing as "unread"

It seems whenever i edit or add new "new watches" my list of new watches will stop highlighting & indicating if there are new unread items. I have to manually go through each one to see if there is anything new. After a while, it seems to reset itself & will start highlighting unre...
