Forum update in progress...

Postby Jack » Sat Sep 13, 2008 10:26 pm

I'm updating this forum to its latest version and integrating some anti-spam suggestions from MysteryFCM. The GreatNews forum style will be restored when this is done. :)

Could we possibly have an update to Greatnews as well as one to the forum?

Probably only annoying bugs will be fixed. I haven't planned to add many new functions.

GreatNews is still one of the most useable rss readers I tried, and I've stuck to it for years. I don't think it actually needs many new functions, it's great the way it is.
It's a little unfortunate that the many bars (toolbar, viewbar, searchbar, internet explorer bar, status bar) can't be switched on/off to make it look cleaner and more minimalist, and their position isn't saved, but oh well...
The only kind of useful new feature that comes to my mind is an option to not show images in feeds - they're being abused for advertising more often in recent years.

Hiding images can be done by applying different styles. I remember one of them posted at GreatNews Style board already did that?

I have a stylesheet that hides images and think I posted it. I've also built one where I have Jacascript that walks through the document and kills embed tags.
