Automatic cleanup

Every month, I get bitten by the cleanup wizard. I use the defaults of keeping that last 200 entries of each feed. After a cleanup I normally have about 90% of data culled. I then to a full update and end up with hundreds of unread items again. It would be nice if the cleanup wizard could be configu...

Support for multiple user profiles

I noticed the other day that my wife's profile gets all my feeds when I run GreatNews in her profile. This also means that I get her feeds in my profile.

Is there a plan to filter the database records according to the logged on user?

Cheers

Yep, that would be it, but why is GN not able to get the images in the first place? Jack, I'm happy to run a special test build if you want additional trace/debug info.

Hope I'm not flogging a dead horse here, but I have found a new behaviour with images not being displayed because of the proxy. If I read a post that has images which aren't displayed in GN, then click on the post link to view it in the browser, then Ctrl+R in GN, when the post reloads, the images a...

Email post

Could an option be included to send a post link to an email address? My classic case here is I use GreatNews at work, but I want to send a post link back to my home so I can follow it up in more detail later. The other common case would be to share the post with someone else.

I know this has been added when the user clicks the mouse middle button on a feed, but I would still like to see this in a context menu of the feed. Also, perhaps the same behavior should exist on folders/groups as you can store a url against the group as well.

Yeah, I forgot about the unreliability of feeds.

After all the feeds did update, I ended up with probably between 1000-2000 previously seen unread items. I have about 300 feeds.

More previously seen unread items have now just come in after the earlier cleanup. My guess is that GreatNews didn't update all feeds (manual update) after the cleanup because it has rules to indicate if it should download the feed at that time (TTLs???).

Cleanup Wizard enhancements

I have an issue with the cleanup wizard. It is a necessary piece of functionality, but it always results in a bit of pain. If I was to cleanup items more than a week old, each feed that contains an item older than a week will be seen as a new item because they are now deleted. I have just done a cle...

Hi Jack, This one keeps biting me. Not sure if you have had a chance to look at it yet, but the message is "TaskbarCreated". UINT wmTaskbarCreated = RegisterWindowMessage(_T("TaskbarCreated")); Check out http://www.otakusoftware.com/blog/2006/09/22/how-to-prevent-system-tray-icon...

I agree that sometimes they are not unique, but that is what they should be (and normally are). Could you add it as an option (default to false perhaps). At least then there is a choice for the user. If you do decide to add this, you may also need to consider whether "duplicate" entries wi...

Mark duplicate items as read

Is it possible to update other feed entries as read if they have the same GUID? I am subscribed to several aggregate feeds as well as feeds from individuals. I may see the same post across 3 or 4 different feeds, but they will have the same GUID because they come from the same source. Currently, I h...
