In .conky these files will run a window or a direct screen write
depending on which Bogle-RSS-? file is used for conky.

Here's a picture of the window.

Thanks!

Here's a screenshot of my conky window: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8VSNc ... sp=sharing In this configuration, I prefer a compact feed (single line spacing). The window is transparent.

Your script still isn't working, I'm not sure why.

In any case, the python script handles HTML escape characters - which do appear in the atom feed output.

Well if the python script is working, it's probably made by a full-timer.
The old script wasn't python of course. If the window and direct screen
write config's I did don't work someone please let me know. I just rebooted
and the direct screen write looks fine.

My machine was locking up so I wrote conky config's in the new

it doesn't lock up.

This is great! I am a holdout who still monitors most of my forums via RSS. Glad I can do it for BH.

One suggestion: Could you eliminate the subforum name from the topic titles? It makes it hard to scan through the topic list because they are so similar and so long.

Since this thread got bumped, I thought I would see if anything new has turned up that can solve the problem of subforum names in topic titles?

I use my.yahoo as my reader of choice and so the scripting solutions provided so far don't help.

Thank you. But I am kind of addicted to my.yahoo for news reading due to it's newspaper like layout and extreme compactness (which I have tweaked further using other extensions).

You mentioned that you would follow up with PHPBB forums to see if anything can be done... did you hear anything back?

The latest version of Sage severely corrupts toolbar configuration! Please do not install that Add-on unless you have a backup of your profile.

This happened to me and I am still recovering. Several other users have also reported this in the reviews.

My Sage says it's updated thru FF 54 and is presently working. Also, every
add-on is going to need an update after FF 56. Major FF rewrite obsoleting
add-ons I've heard.
