Feedreader 3.0 Help

This is user documentation for Feedreader 3.

Adding new feed

If you want to subscribe to a new feed in Feedreader, press F3 and feed location input box appears. Paste feed address to inputbox and press ENTER/RETURN key or click OK.


New feed will be created on feeds view. New feed is initially editable and you can change feed's name if it's needed. All articles are also downloaded from feed after you have subscribed to it.


If you do not want to add feed then you can click on Cancel button or press ESCAPE key and feed url input box disappears.


Feed Autodiscovery

Some webpages support Feed Autodiscovery. If you are using Firefox as your webbrowser and you see feed icon on web location bar


then this means you can safely input web page address in feed location input box.


After clicking OK Feedreader lets you choose the feed you want from available feeds on this web page.


Smartfeeds

About smartfeeds

Smartfeed is one of most powerful and unique features of Feedreader. Smartfeeds provide way to constantly monitor incoming articles for information that is interesting to user.

For example if you are interested in latest photographic gadgets then you just create a smartfeeds with words „digital camera“,“lens“ and so on. After you have created smartfeed, it will be displayed on the left feed panel and always contains the up to date information about digital cameras.

Smartfeed is displayed with blue icon.



Hint : Subscribe to a lot of newsfeeds (Feedreader is powerful enough to work with thousands of feeds) and create smartfeeds of your choice. Now you you get only information what you need and do not have to read all the articles.

Creating a smartfeed

To create a smartfeed click on menu File > New > Smartfeed or press Shift+F3. Smartfeed editing form appears.

Initially there is one rule that you can fill in. Filling in rule row consists of three steps:

You can always combine multiple rules. Press + button to add new rule to smartfeed. Smartfeed can either search for articles which contain ALL the rules or search for articles which contains SOME of these rules. User can change this behaviour when clicking on link „Match ... of following rules“.

Example: Let's say that user wants to search for articles that talk about gadgets. User then inputs two rules:

If user has selected „Match all of following rules“ then smartfeed will contain only articles where both phrases appear. If user has selected „Match any of following rules“ then smartfeed will contain articles where either mp3 or player is contained. This means that you also get information about video players, mp4 players and so on.

Overview of smartfeed rule types

There are many different condition types that you can use in smartfeeds:

Additional settings for smartfeed

There are two additional settings in smartfeed editing form:

Using search feeds

Using search feeds

From version 3.13 Feedreader supports search feeds based on Opensearch definition standard.

 
To add new feed select New > Search feed from File menu.

 

 
In this form it's possible to input search keyword and select search services that are used for providing persistent search results. You can select one or more services at the same time. After clicking "Ok" new search feed is created and all subscribed search services are updated. Search results are displayed in the same way as normal feed articles.

 

 
If you select "Group by source" from view menu then it's possible to browse search results by search service.

 

 
To change search keyword or change the search services that are used to provide the search select "Edit search feed" from selected search feed popupmenu. Search feed edit form will be displayed.

 

 

Adding search feed services

Search feed service definitions are based on Opensearch standard. This makes it possible for you to add your own search services to Feedreader. Search feed definition file must comply to following rules:

Using searchbox

Searchbox is situated in left top corner of application window and it's used for searching information from all the articles in application database. Application searches for user inputed search term in headline title and body.

There are some possiblities for search term input.

If you input just a search term state then application will display all articles what contain phrase state. It will also return articles what contain words estate, states and so on.

If you would like to search for exact phrase, add " marks to search phrase. For example search for "state" will only return articles what contain this exact phrase.

If you would like to search for multiple words then you can use conditions AND and/or OR. If you search for "dog AND cat" then search will return articles what contain search term cat and dog in same article. If you search for "dog OR cat" then search will return articles what contain search term cat or dog. You can also mix conditions. For example the following is possible : "cat OR dog AND food". This search term searches for articles where exists phrase FOOD and also either DOG or CAT.

Downloading enclosures and podcasts

Feedreader 3.0 is able to download enclosures / podcasts what are attached to articles. There are two ways to download enclosures:

Automatic

To enable automatic download of enclosures, please open feed / smartfeed properties and make sure that checkbox "Download enclosures" is checked.




If you have checked this option then all enclosures will be automatically downloaded to enclosure directory if new items arrive in this feed/smartfeed.


Manual

Make sure that you have "Status" column visible. You can check it out from menu "View -> Visible columns". Status item must be checked.

If Status column is visible and there is enclosure attached to some news item, then you see attachment icon in Status column.





If this icon is gray then enclosure / podcast is available but is not downloaded yet. Double click on this icon to start downloading.

If this icon is black then enclosure / podcast is already downloaded. Double click on this icon to open downloaded file in media player.

Download directory

By default enclosures download directory is located under two possible locations:

You can open this directory in File Explorer and manage downloads as regular documents (for example copy to memorystick or add to iTunes playlist).

If you want to change default directory then open Feedreader options from menu Tools > Options and navigate to "Advanced" tab. Change "Enclosures download directory" to fit your needs.

Notification/Alert system

Feedreader 3.0 has advanced notification system built in. You can customize how would you like to be notified and about what would you like to be notified.

There are different places where you can tune notifications. Global notification settings are situated in Program options window on General tab.



Display notifications
From here you can tell application if you want to be notified or not. By default application shows you notifications instantly if some new items arrive. You can change this to "Once in a hour" if you do not want to see notifications often. You can also change this option to "Do not display notifications" if you do not like to be interrupted while working.

If you have disabled notifications when you can always manually trigger notifications display from tray menu by clicking on item "Display unseen notifications".

If not set in feed then...

This configuration option let's you change global options for feed. By default every new feed and filter will display notifications when you have enabled it in "Display notifications" option.

Also you can change notification option per feed.



Now there's two possibilities:

Additional functionality

There's quite cool functionality in application - if screensaver is active or computer is locked then notifications are paused until user is again ready to see them. Notifications are triggered then and user does not miss any of new item notifications.

Adding tags to article

Tagging is a powerful feature if you want to categorize information. Every article can have one or more tags.

You can add or change article tags if you click on tag edit button on article page.


Alternativelly if you have tags column visible you can doubleclick on "Tags" column to open tags management window.


Tag management window has two main parts - selected tags and available tags.


You can drag and drop tags from one container to other container and vice versa. You can also write tag name in inputbox and press ENTER/RETURN key. This way you can input the tag what is not yet in database.

If you change tags and close window, article will be reloaded and all added tags are visible on article page and in "Tags" column.


Keyboard shortcuts

Feedreader makes use of some keyboard shortcuts:

Advanced usage

Below are some techniques for advanced users.

Backing up Feedreader database

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):

  • c:\program files\feedreader30\data\ (or the directory where you installed Feedreader)
  • c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\feedreader\

If you also want to backup feedreader program settings (proxies, localization, ...) then please backup feedreader.ini what is located in following locations:

  • c:\program files\feedreader30\ (or the directory where you installed Feedreader)
  • c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\feedreader\

Displaying custom RSS information in article page

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.

Little example

Feed contains information

<itunes:duration>13:27</itunes:duration>.

Feedreader publishes this information in article page, too. It's converted into


<frc:itunes_duration>13:27</frc:itunes_duration>

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.

Download demo

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.

Running Feedreader from USB flash memory

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.

Tuning Feedreader with advanced configuration options

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:

  • viewcount=number - By default Feedreader displays only 1000 first items in item view. Items are limited because of performance reasons. You can change this number to be bigger or smaller.
  • webviewcount=number - By default feedreader displays only 100 first items if you are using Web view (Alt+3). If you would like to change this number bigger or smaller then input in configuration file new number (for example webviewcount=200)
  • disableactivex=true - If you use this option then Feedreader will disable ActiveX controls in minibrowser.
  • disablejava=true - If you use this option then Feedreader will disable Java (not Javascript) in minibrowser.
  • dbdirectory=location - If needed you can move Feedreader database to some other location. NB! Database does not work from network locations.
  • visualsupport=1 - for added visually impaired
  • fontsize=number - Change font size for Feedreader
  • fontname=font name - Change font name for Feedreader. Try Arial or Verdana for example
  • skipvercheck=yes - Disable automatic version update check
  • httpConnectionTimeout=55 (number in seconds) - for slow connections or slow servers
  • httpReadTimeout=55 (number in seconds) - for slow connections or slow servers
  • noautomaticviewrefresh=1 - disable automatic refreshing of article list in case new articles are coming in

Quick tips

Frequently asked questions

Below are some questions what we always need to answer :).

After installing new version of Feedreader feeds do not update any more (Error adding feed: Socket error : # 10061)

In many cases this is the problem of Personal Firewall products. Personal Firewalls tracks Feedreader application file size. If new version's filesize has changed (and it changes in most cases) then Firewall will disable Feedreader's internet access.

For example if you want to add new feed to Feedreader then it says :

Error adding feed: Socket error : # 10061

This error message means that Feedreader cannot access internet.

So please check Personal Firewall setup and reenable Feedreader to access internet if needed.

"Unread news" feature went missing and I cannot get it back

"Unread news" is just a smartfeed. I guess you somehow deleted it. You can recreate it by clicking on File > New smartfeed and then making the smartfeed condition to look like "Status > is > Unread". By the way you can try out other smartfeeds, too. In fact this is the most advanced part of Feedreader :). Just search for phrase or combine feeds or show articles with some tags.

Adjust Font Size In The Tree View Window

Let me start by saying I love Feedreader. Great software, keep up the good work. My problem is I cannot change the font size in the tree view menu. My screen resolution is 1600x1200 and the font in the tree view is almost unreadable. It hurts my eyes. I can easily adjust the font size in the content window by editing the atom.xsl file, but I can't find anywhere to adjust the font size in the tree window. Please let me know if this can be fixed now or if it will be fixed sometime soon. Thank You!

How do I remove Feedreader from my computer

Please shut down Feedreader and then delete two folders:

c:\program files\feedreader30 (this is Feedreader program directory)
c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\Feedreader (this is Feedreader data directory)

Second folder is hidden folder, so you have to set folder options to "show hidden folders"

How to customize Feedreader 2.9 with default feeds and settings.

You must follow next steps:

* Download and install Inno Setup.

* Make new directory for customization work.

* Download install script for Feedreader and save it in customization directory.

* Copy feedreader.exe from Feedreader directory to customization directory.

* If you want copy translation.lng from Feedreader directory to customization directory.

* Copy all dll-s from Feedreader directory to customization directory.

* Copy license.txt from Feedreader directory to customization directory

* Run Feedreader and make feed list as you want it to appear in customized version.

* Quit feedreader and copy subscriptions.xml from c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Feedreader to customization directory.

* Rename it as import.xml

* Open Feedreader_Setup.iss in Inno Setup and compile Feedreader setup package.

* New setup install package should be created.

* If you need, you can change Feedreader_Setup.iss to fit your needs.

How to customize Feedreader 3.0 with default feeds and settings.

To create Feedreader setup package with custom feeds please follow next steps:

  • Download latest Inno Setup
  • Download Feedreader 3.x setup script
  • Use downloaded setup script as template
  • Install Feedreader, change properties way the you like. Subscribe to feeds what you like.
  • When you have changed properties and subscribed to feeds then you can locate two data files: feedreader.ini and rssengine.fdb. Usually they are located in c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\Feedreader.
  • Include files feedreader.ini and rssengine.fdb in Feedreader setup package (you have to read Inno Setup help for this)
  • All files that are needed by Inno Setup can be found in c:\program files\feedreader30.

If you have followed these steps you can finally create your custom Feedreader setup package.

We allow this method only for private/noncommercial or closed environment Feedreader customisations. If you need to make Feedreader available for masses with your feeds then please contact us

I need to export/archive all the unread blog articles I have in Feedreader.

I need to export/archive all the unread blog articles I have in Feedreader. Ideally, I'd be able to get them out as formatted HTML. It seems as though Feedreader Connect personal might enable this? This is strictly a personal project.

It may be easier than you think :) . Please use webview (Alt+3) to view all articles. Now click somewhere on articles list and press Control+A after this. This will select all the HTML. Now paste this HTML to application that supports HTML formating. For example if you paste to Word or Thunderbird email window HTML works. But if you paste to Notepad then HTML does not appear and only text appears.

Another possibility is to dig folder c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\application data\Feedreader\cache. If you start Feedreader then this folder is empty but it will contain all articles and webview that you read. So just look for files and you may get HTML files containing articles directly from there. Webview files are starting with ~feed....

You may ask that why there are only limited number of articles in webview. This is because by default Feedreader only shows 100 last articles. You either have to copy articles multiple times or make webview count bigger. For example add webviewcount=300 to feedreader.ini under [misc] section and after restart Feedreader displays 300 articles at a time in minibrowser window.

If you are talking about "unread" messages then make sure that "show only unread" is selected from view menu or you create special smartfeed with unread status.

What is Intellupdate?

Intelliupdate is special algorithm that computes time for every feed's update. You can see results from this algorithm then checking last update and next update times and calculating values in different feeds.


Intelliupdate wants to be intelligent. Also it wants to do no harm to webservers serving RSS feeds. Novadays there are so many users of RSS and it's not good idea to make little update period for every feed. Also - take Slashdot example - if you are polling Slashdot once in 10 minutes then you will soon get banned.


Intelliupdate tries to do it. For example if there is only one new article in few days in some feed, there is no point of polling this feed every 10 minutes. And for example if there are new items every 10 minutes then Feedreader polls for new items every 10 minutes.


That's why Intelliupdate is default for every feed. For normal person and normal feed it should be enough. If some feed behaves diferently then user can change this option.


Let's get my own example I have 40 feeds what I read. I have only changed this period in three feeds. In all other feeds this Intelliupdate works well..


And you can always press Control+Shitf+F5 to do manual update of all feeds.


Anleitung: Der FeedReader

Hier findest du eine kurze Einführung in die Nutzung des Feedreaders.

  1. Download und Installation
  2. Einrichten des FeedReaders
  3. Neue Feeds einfügen
  4. Feeds per OPML importieren
  5. Tipps und Tricks

Download

Wir gehen auf die Webseite www.feedreader.com und klicken auf "Download". Auf der folgenden Seite finden wir immer ein oder zwei Links zur neuesten Version. Wir speichern die Exe-Datei in einem beliebigen Verzeichnis unserer Wahl ab.

Screenshot Feedreader


Dann starten wir die abgespeicherte Datei FeedReader3.X.XSetup.exe mit einem Doppelklick. Als erstes wählen wir die Sprache aus...



Screenshot Feedreader


...und werden dann durch den Setup-Assistenten geführt.



Screenshot Feedreader


Nachdem wir die Lizenzbestimmungen brav durchgelesen und akzeptiert haben, wählen wir den Ordner, in dem der FeedReader installiert werden soll:



Screenshot Feedreader


Wer (wie ich) ein Fan von portablen Programmen ist, der kann sich für die Option Configure software to run on portable disk entscheiden - hier werden die Einstellungen nicht in den Anwendungsdaten, sondern direkt im Programmverzeichnis abgelegt.



Screenshot Feedreader


Als nächstes werden uns ein paar vorinstallierte Feeds präsentiert. Wir können sie übernehmen - oder es auch lassen. Mitunter sind die Adressen der Feeds nicht so ganz aktuell.



Screenshot Feedreader


Schließlich ist das Programm fertig installiert, und wir können mit der Einrichtung beginnen:


Die Einrichtung

Vor uns haben wir nun also den - noch recht nackten - FeedReader. Ich verwende die "breite Ansicht", sollte diese nicht voreingestellt sein, einfach über "Ansicht / Zeige Layout / Breit" einstellen. In der linken Spalte werden die Feeds aufgelistet, in der mittleren - chronologisch sortiert - die Überschriften, und in der rechten Spalte dann der Beitrag selbst.

Screenshot Feedreader


Aber erst mal gibt's noch ein wenig "Feintuning": Über "Werkzeuge / Einstellungen" finden wir den Einstellungsdialog. Interessant sind die Reiter "Allgemein":



Screenshot Feedreader


Ich empfehle, Verknüpfungen im Standard-Browser zu aktivieren, ansonsten nutzt der FeedReader den InternetExplorer[TM] zur Darstellung. Auch die Option Als Standard Feedreader ausführen macht Sinn, sofern man den Firefox ab der Version 2 benutzt: Dann kann man nämlich die Feeds direkt über die Firefox-Einstellungen übernehmen und muss nicht in den Feedreader wechseln. Alle anderen Einstellungen ausprobieren und nach den eigenen Vorlieben auswählen.

Der andere interessante Reiter ist "Erweitert":



Screenshot Feedreader


Hier empfehle ich, aus Sicherheitsgründen Javascript zu deaktivieren, ansonsten einfach ein wenig ausprobieren.

Weitere Einstellungsmöglichkeiten findet man unter "Ansicht":



Screenshot Feedreader


Hier kann man u.a. auswählen, welche Informationen man in der mittleren Spalte angezeigt haben möchte und die Sortierung anpassen.



Neue Feeds

Nun wollen wir endlich unsere ersten Feeds eingeben: Über den kleinen Button "neu" wählen wir Neuer Feed aus (oder nutzen einfach die Taste F3):



Screenshot Feedreader


Dann geben wir in die Feed-Zeile die URL des Feeds, den wir abonnieren möchten, ein und klicken auf ok:



Screenshot Feedreader


FeedReader sucht den Feed, und wenn wir alles richtig gemacht haben, erscheint nun links in der Feed-Liste das neue Abonnement, und in der Mitte sehen wir, chronologisch angeordnet, die letzten Meldungen des Feeds.



Screenshot Feedreader


Irgendwann wird es in der Feed-Liste aber ein wenig unübersichtlich, deshalb empfiehlt es sich, die Abos in Ordnern zu sortieren. Ein neuer Ordner ist schnell angelegt: Über den "Neu"-Button wählen wir Neuer Ordner aus...



Screenshot Feedreader


...und geben diesem einen aussagekräftigen Namen. Per "drag & drop" (durch verschieben mit der Maus) wird der Feed einfach in den entsprechenden Ordner gezogen.



Screenshot Feedreader


Nun können wir mit einem Klick im mittleren Fenster auf die entsprechende Überschrift im rechten Fenster den Text lesen.



Screenshot Feedreader


Keine Bange: Für Umsteiger gibt es natürlich auch die Möglichkeit, die Feeds als OPML-Datei zu importieren:



Screenshot Feedreader


So, der Feedreader ist eingerichtet. Hier noch ein paar kleine Tipps und Tricks, wie man das Programm noch angenehmer nutzen kann:



Tipps und Tricks

Die Einstellungen des jeweiligen Feed nimmt man über "Datei / Bearbeite Feeds" vor - zugegeben, eine gewöhnungsbedürftige Vorgehensweise.



Screenshot Feedreader


Nun kann man die Optionen bei jedem Feed nach belieben einstellen, ferner bei passwortgeschützten Feeds die Zugangsdaten eingeben.



Screenshot Feedreader


Ein nettes Schmankerl beim FeedReader ist die - bereits vorgefertigte Option - des Überblicks über die neuen Feeds. Mit einem Klick auf "Ungelesene Nachrichten" in der Feedliste ganz links werden im Mittelfenster alle neuen Feeds aufgelistet - die Sortierung übernimmt man über einen Klick auf die entsprechende Spaltenüberschrift. Mit der Leertaste kann man dann zum nächsten ungelesenen Feed springen.



Screenshot Feedreader


Ebenfalls zu empfehlen sind die "Smartfeeds" genannten Filter: Über den "Neu"-Button können wir einen neuen Smartfeed erstellen...



Screenshot Feedreader


...dem wir dann im nächsten Fenster die entsprechenden Filterkriterien zuordnen - z.B. bestimmte Schlagworte, die im Text oder in der Überschrift vorkommen sollen. Auf diese Weise kann man feed- und gruppenübergreifend bestimmte Artikel zu neuen Gruppen zusammenfassen und lesen.



Screenshot Feedreader


Eine weitere Filteroption ist die der Markierung. Wenn man z.B. einen bestimmten Feed später nochmal durchlesen möchte, kann man ihn markieren und über den Smartfeed ansehen. Dazu aktivieren wir den Filter "Markierung ist mit Sternchen versehen". Schließlich geben wir dem Smartfeed noch einen entsprechenden Namen, z.B. "markiert".



Screenshot Feedreader


Das Markieren der einzelnen Feeds ist kinderleicht: Einfach in der Übersichtsspalte vor den entsprechenden Artikel klicken.



Screenshot Feedreader


Ein Klick auf den Smartfeed "markiert" bringt uns nun zu den Feeds, die wir ausgewählt haben - unabhängig von den übrigen Ansichtseinstellungen.

Feedreader Connect Server database schema

Feedreader Connect Server users can use this database schema to get to know Feedreader Connect Server.

Getting Started with Feedreader Connect Personal Edition

Global settings

After installing Feedreader Connect Personal Edition (FCPE) open Tools > Feedreader Connect Control Panel and specify global settings.

FCPE has three modules that can be enabled for use:

  • Feed Uploader
  • Mail Forwarder
  • Instant Messaging Gateway.

You have to setup up and enable only these services that you intend to use. Below we will go through all three modules and their setup options.

Feed Uploader

Click on Feed Uploader Settings button to set up Feed Uploader. There are three things that are needed for Feed Uploader to function:

  • FTP Server address

  • FTP Server username
  • FTP Server password

If these fields are not filled in then Feed Uploader will not function.

Mail Forwarder

In Mail Forwarder Settings you can only specify the delay between every sent email. This is good for eliminating potential network load.

You also have to input mail server settings. These settings should be inputed in Tools > Program options > Connection tab.

Instant Messaging Gateway

Instant Messaging Gateway is used for notifying Windows Live Messenger (MSN Messenger) users about new articles.

Please input Windows Live Messenger username and password under Instant Messaging Gateway settings dialog.

You do not have to change MSN server address. If you delete MSN Server address accidentally then use 207.46.28.93 as data for this field.

Configuring a feed or smartfeed for use with Feedreader Connect

If you have set up all needed modules you can move on to detailed level of configuration.

If you click on feed name with right mouse button then you will see new menu item „Feedreader Connect Options“ under every feed. From here you can enable or disable all Feedreader Connect modules on per feed basis.

In „Feedreader Connect options“ you will see three tabs – one for every module. In next sections we will talk about possible configuration options for each module.

Feed Uploader settings

Enable Feed Uploader – enable or disable Feed Uploader
Transform XML – by default Feedreader outputs all data in XML format. If you'd like to output data as HTML (or your own format) then choose stylesheet that Feedreader will use for transforming XML formated data to your format. If you would like to get output as HTML formated web page then choose email.xsl as stylesheet.
Folder on server – by default Feedreader will upload files to your home directory in server. Here you can specify alternate directory. For example inputing public_html/feedreader will upload your data to feedreader folder under public_html folder
Filename on server – here you can name the uploaded file in FTP server.
Number of articles to show – specify how many articles you'd like to see in your uploaded file.

Instant Messaging Settings

Enable Instant Messaging Gateway – Enable or disable IM Gateway
Recipients – input 1-10 recipients separated by „,“. In DEMO mode FCPE will only accept one recipient. Make sure that all recipients also add sender MSN address to friends list.
Message content – You can specify how message looks like. Use variables and free text to generate customized MSN message. For example message can look like ON %date %filtername SAYS that „%articletitle“

Mail Forwarder Settings

Enable Mail Forwarder – Enable or disable Mail Forwarder
Recipients – input 1-10 recipients separated by „,“. In DEMO mode FCPE will only accept one recipient. Make sure that all recipients also add sender MSN address to friends list.
Mail subject – You can specify how mail subject looks like. Use variables and free text to generate customized mail subject. For example subject can look like ON %date %filtername SAYS that „%articletitle“
Transform XML with stylesheet – By default Feedreader sends out email with XML formated content. If you want to produce human readable email message, then please choose email.xsl as stylesheet.
Send articles as attachments – If you enable this option then message content will be attached to email message instead of displaying it inline.
Attachment file extension – If „send articles as attachments“ is enabled then you should also input attachment extension. If you are using XML formated attachments then „xml“ is ok, if you are transforming XML to HTML then extension should be „htm“.

Event viewer

You can always monitor FCPE from „Event viewer“ panel under Tools > Feedreader Connect Control Panel. Event viewer displays all sent articles, uploaded web pages, and sent instant messages.

Triggering Feed Upload

If you have configured some feed or smartfeed to be uploaded with Feed Uploader then you can trigger feed upload manually from feed context menu.
