Suggestion: Failed feeds

Postby sabarnett » Mon Jul 09, 2007 7:37 am

I have several feeds that are not entirely reliable and, when GreatNews refreshes, it fails to update them. All I get at the moment is a message on the status line along the lines "2 feeds failed". I know they're highlighted in red in the tree, but the tree is closed so I have to search through dozens of groups to find the broken feeds.

It would be useful if, when a feed fails, I had an easier way of locating it to determine whether it's the same feed failing all the time or whether it is a feed that I can do something to fix.

What I would like to suggest is that, when a feed fails, it gets added (temporarily) to a "Failed Feeds" leg in the feeds tree (perhaps below the "All Labels" leg). When the feed successfully updates it gets removed from the tree.

Just a suggestion.
