Below are some techniques for advanced users.
If you need to transfer your Feedreader data files to new computer or just backup files for storage then it's easily possible.
Feedreader stores all the data in one file. It's named rssengine.fdb.
rssengine.fdb can be found in two locations (it depends on choosed installation method):
If you also want to backup feedreader program settings (proxies, localization, ...) then please backup feedreader.ini what is located in following locations:
We have been asked a lot of times about showing custom RSS fields (comment link and so on) on article page.
At the moment the standard article page does not contain those custom fields because we like to keep things simple.
At the same time the internals of Feedreader are REALLY REALLY advanced and theoretically you can display whatever custom RSS field in article page. By the way - you can even specify your own custom fields if you publish feed. And then make Feedreader display those custom fields the way you want.
Feed contains information
Feedreader publishes this information in article page, too. It's converted into
So it's only matter of adding special rules to stylesheet to display this information in article page.
Exploring custom information in feed
If you want to explore what custom information one or another feed has, please use test stylesheet (attached below). Save it as custom.xsl to stylesheet folder.
I have created an example (attached below) how you could display "comments" link in article page. Save it to stylesheet folder and rename to "custom.xsl". After this you should see comments link under article title in minibrowser.
If there is need to run Feedreader from USB flash memory then you must do following modifications to Feedreader installation:
1) Move feedreader.ini from folder c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\Feedreader\ to the folder where Feedreader application files are located (initially c:\program files\Feedreader30).
2) Create folder named DATA inside the folder where Feedreader application files are located (eg c:\program files\feedreader30\data).
3) Move rssengine.fdb file from folder c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\Feedreader\ to DATA folder.
If you followed these steps, Feedreader should store all data in application directory and it's possible to move application directory to USB flash memory.
There are some advanced configuration options what can be applied only by editing feedreader.ini configuration file.
Feedreader configuration file is located in
c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\Feedreader or in c:\program files\feedreader30\
Configuration options should be written below [misc] section.
There are following configuration options:
