Still concerned 'bout Tray Icon

Postby Commun User » Mon Oct 03, 2005 8:50 am


Ok a little something can do a great difference.
When new news arrive:

Personnaly I prefer Popups.
Orelse my desktop is in 1600x1200 and the tray icon does'nt appear so differently when is a gold star or even a gray envelop on it. I would like to see more clearly the difference. As an example MS Messenger icon really shows when I'm not connected. There must be some great looking icon idea between current GreatNews tray icon and a bold red-or-green square. Héhéhé...

And so thanks again for french version of your software!
I really recommand it to personnal friends.
U guys do a great and usefull job...

It's kinda difficult to find, but if you check the option "Notify me when new items arrive" in the 2nd page of Channel Properties, GreatNews will show a popup window.

It's a per-channel setting. Lot of GreatNews users have hundreds of channels. We probably don't want popups pop up every 5 seconds :)

Thank you you help me got the problem. Good software and "good service" :D .


Your problem is different from Yves's. If all channels cannot update, it's most likely GreatNews has problem accessing internet. You can try to type url in GN address bar. Does the website come up? Do you have personal firewall like ZoneAlarm enabled?[/quote]
