it would be nice that instead of right clicking and then going to feeds and then selecting one feed...that the screenlet would take stories from all rss feeds and show them like it does in the vista rss feed gadget or in some konfabulator themes. at least an option for this would be nice.

also an easier method to adding custom feeds would be much highly appreciated. :)

also an adjustible size as in "show this many feeds in one window before scrolling to the next" option would be very nice.

while most rss screenlets are a bit disappointing this one does look more promising especially if more features are included in it.

There doesn't seem to be a way to open a story in the browser.

The screenlet's okay for a headline, and maybe some introductory text; but being able to open the story in a browser would be much more useful.

Also: If you were able to set your own browser preferences: that would be nice.

You can add other RSS feeds by editing the folowing files:
- ClearRssScreenlet.py
- menu.xml

ClearRssScreenlet.py
- Go to the section with all the links to the rss feeds and create a new one.
Example:
Quote:
if id =="set_feed_[simplefiedname]":
self.set_feed("[Name of the new RSS feed]", "[link_to_the_rss_feed]")


- menu.xml
In the other file you have created the RSS link but to let it work you need to place a link in your menu to the new rss feed.
Example:
Quote:
<item label="[Name of the RSS feed]" id="set_feed_[simplefiedname]" />


Everythink is WITHOUT the [ ] brackets!
The simplefied names must be the same. And I think you can't add spaces, I haven't wrote this screenlet, and I haven tried adding spaces so I don't know. The only I know is that this works fine to me...
