Re: Getting it to use external browser?

Go to Options, Usability tab, try setting one or both of the "Double clicking in (...) should open (...)" options to "external browser".

Is it some hard coded limit?
My other feed readers don't have any problem with large feeds.

Re: Error 1970349629

Open GreatNews.ini, add the following line to the "Advanced" section (create of necessary):
MaxFeedSizeInK=2000
Two megs should be enough, but feel free to increase the value further if necessary.

Re: Now that GN is open-source, perhaps a new FF core?

Well there is already the possibility to use the Mozilla engine - see here - but afaict that one's not been updated in ages... To me, FF doesn't look easy to integrate at all, if I had to choose a completely new browser control I'd probably go with WebKit right now. How adept are you when it comes t...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.388-ktm

Image caching is done purely by the IE control that's being used to display the HTML generated by GN. GN itself has nothing to do with it and doesn't even try to preload anything. Try increasing IE's cache, and display all the items you intend to read offline once so the images get cached. Also, sin...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.388-ktm

I've noticed that the Feed-Validator don't work any more, because the URL is invalid (404). Nice catch, thank you. Massive bonus points for including a patch :D (even though it's a trivial one) When you tweaked the SQLite in 387...has there been a noticeable change in anything ? Speed ? Database si...

Re: Feed slows on updates (irrespective of actual new posts)

I'm not sure I understood what you mean correctly, so I'm gonna cover the basics here: What's "Feed properties" - "Settings" - "Auto Update Frequency" set to? Does setting it to a lower value help? Getting "irregular updates" implies there's been an error, so ...

GreatNews 1.0.388-ktm

It's been a couple of busy weeks for me, so I haven't gotten anything fancy done that'd be worth releasing. Still, there's two open bugs for 1.0.387 which have been addressed, and a (small) feature change, so here's 1.0.388. Since I have touched nothing besides the two mentioned bugs and this menu ,...

Re: One or two things

One thing this program does is lose count of pages when it reads news items that are labeled in that directory. That's been annoying me since forever, too. However, I finally got around to fixing it just now! The only other thing is the screen flickers on start-up once. Please clarify, that exactly...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.387-ktm

Dang, I just noticed: If you start with this version from scratch - that is, without an existing DB file - it gets created with the wrong version number. Right after that, GreatNews tries to upgrade, but fails due to the DB already having the new structure. So, this version doesn't work for new user...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.387-ktm

Can't get that reproduced here, unfortunately. You make it sound like a one-off, non-recurring error - correct? If so, while not nice, it's not a deal breaker. Do you have a lot of feeds? Maybe it's just that they get in each other's way. I sometimes start getting similar-sounding "disk full&qu...

Re: Disabling favicons?

Even if this thread's ancient - Maybe the answer's still of some use to someone: In GreatNews.ini, section "[Advanced]" (create it if necessary), put "NoFavicons=Y". That should do the trick.
