Internet Explorer 8

Has anybody tried IE8 yet? Any quirks with Awasu that we should be aware of?

Re: Awasu Only Shows First Item for Channel Plugin

Ok, now I think I got it. When publishing an RSS-based feed, generate a GUID and never change it. Thanks for the education.

Here' a page by Sam Ruby which compares RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0:

Re: Awasu Only Shows First Item for Channel Plugin

an RSS GUID is not a GUID, in the usual sense of the word An RSS GUID isn't required to be a GUID, in the usual sense of the word, but it can. So if you have easy-to-use, built-in GUID generation system like the .NET framework has, you can it. This article might also help. It contains links to seve...

Re: Awasu Only Shows First Item for Channel Plugin

Hi GoDanno, It's really easy to generate a GUID in .Net langauges. So add a GUID to all of your items and make feed reader developer's lives a little easier. Documented here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.guid.newguid.aspx VB.NET example: Dim strGUID As String = Guid.NewGuid(...

Re: Channel Hook(s) questions

Wow! Thanks for the super speedy and thorough response! :clap: On item # 6 , one of the things that influenced my guess was that I’ve seen that you can update an existing Channel Hook’s parameters in the Channel Hooks Properties dialog box, without having to restart Awasu. So I think the really comp...

Post subject: Re: Full Article Content (Again)

On Programming Languages You don't have to know any specific scripting languages to program with Awasu, I'm not a skilled Python programmer but for extending Awasu I'm making a point of learning Python because 1) I always wanted to but didn't have a driving reason to use it, 2) it is a fairly simpl...

Yes I did read through that post but I think I got the feeling that nothing solid ever came of it True, I wrote the script to demonstrate that the original poster's request could be fulfilled by a Channel Hook. I did not have the need myself for a "save to text file" hook at that time. I ...

Channel Hook(s) questions

I'm lazy and don't feel like testing this, search yielded no results, so I'll ask instead… No big rush on these. Don't feel you have to answer them all today or in one reply. #1 If I add multiple Channel Hooks to the same Channel, are they called in the order that they appear in the list, top to bot...

You're really getting into these Send to tools Yes I am. Send to tools are yet another seriously cool 8) feature. Anytime you want to do something manually with a single feed item, think Send to tools. They're a great compliment to Awasu's automated features. I've tested both HTTP-based and file-sy...

Since you added (Again) to your subject I guess you've already seen the previous posts on a similar topic where I wrote a simple Python script that downloads the complete page referenced by the feed item and saves it as a text file, removing all HTML elements. http://www.awasu.com/forums/viewtopic.p...

Re: Search query help?

You can turn off the automatic correction of regular quotes to "smart quotes" ( and other annoyances ) in Word 97-2003 ( not sure about 2007 ) by selecting "AutoCorrect options..." from the "Tools" menu. Once in the AutoCorrect dialog box deselect the various items from...

Re: Search query help?

Just to be sure, you did check the "Advanced syntax" check box when you created the search channel, right? Also, I noticed your slanted quotation marks in your post. In your actual Awasu query, are your quotes "straight" or “slanted”? And Taka would this make a difference? Micros...

Rate items/channels for channel sorting and removal

I've been thinking about commenting on this for a while, but I always seem to be too busy to post a reply. Bottom line, I think a manual rating system could be useful, even though I personally do not have an immediate need for it. Channel ratings by rating Channels You could provide the ability to r...
