interface glitch, bug and RFE

Postby lgm » Wed Feb 23, 2005 9:54 pm

ui glitch see attachment

an option to update failed channels after a "Update All" would be nice.

Also, the balloon tool tip is buggy. My task bar is set to auto hide and everytime GreatNews finishes updating the task bar pops up but no tool tip is visible.

what, no attachment? :evil:

edit: slashdot rss feed problem? i run into it while reading this entry on slashdot. you will notice two links in the post but they do not show up in GreatNews. who's the guilty party? :roll:

see slashdot rss rawdump:

stupid slashdot...

dont remember exactly how to enable attachment in phpBB but it should in the control panel somewhere. just play with it. :D

all in all, this is shaping up to be a nice piece and i really like the newspaper style. keep up the good work.

currently posts remain unread in newspaper style. if i display 10 headlines in newspaper style, the number of unread posts should decrease by that number.

Good idea. Next version it will mark all news on current page as read after several seconds. Now I just need to figure out how to update channel unread counts after that.... :x

yeah i know but i wanna keep my data, at least for a while.

you have a display n number of items per page var. take that and subtract from total unread?

also, if there's no unread item in a channel, shouldn't it display all read item in a chronical order?
