Re: Newsleecher not working

I contacted them directly, and it seems they had a problem, at least with SSL on the US news server, although they didn't exactly say they did. But after pointing it out to them, and asking me a couple of questions, they just said "Try it now". And it's working again at full speed. I'm IT for my com...

Re: Newsleecher not working

Okay, I turned off SSL, and now the articles are downloading full speed.

Looks like they're having a problem with SSL.

Re: Newsleecher not working

The same is happening to me. The connections list just says "(Transfers scanned)" with a yellow triangle, cycling back to Offline about once a second. Also prior to this, it had been behaving strangely. For the last few weeks or so, articles would start downloading very slowly, only one connection l...

have you enabled the option in Windows Explorer to show hidden files and folders? It's always been on, but the descript.ion files never showed up before, even in Windows Explorer. But I realize now what I did. Oops! In Newsleecher's Advanced Options, I must have sometime clicked on "Enable 'descrip...

Can't hide descript.ion files?

Hi, I have Newsleecher 3.8 and Giganews server. I just downloaded the recently announce Giganews Accelerator, and suddenly I'm getting a 'descript.ion' file in my downloaded folder. I checked Newsleacher Options\Advanced and sure enough, "Hide 'descript.ion' files" was unchecked. So I checked it, sh...

Does the Super Search tab have 2 numbers like [0/4087] or does it just have [4087]? If it has 2 sets of numbers then something is filtering the results. Doubleclick in the filter box to clear any hidden characters that would be causing the filtering. Perhaps the window layout configuration file is ...

3.8 final SuperSearch returns results but doesn't display them

Hi, Just upgraded to NL 3.8 Final. Had been only using only 3.7 final before (I don't like betas). I have set SuperSearch for "General" and max number of days. I did a search on i.e. "boston legal" (without the quotes) and the Supersearch tab says it found 4037 results, yet it doesn't display anythi...

Thank you. I completely missed it. Duh! :oops:

How to stop the same "News" popup at every launch of NL?

Hi, I just registered NL and am new to this forum. Simple question, but I couldn't find the option for it, nor in the FAQ. How do I stop NL from announcing a "New BETA version 3.8 is available", every time I launch Newsleecher, with a popup window and then switching over to the news tab? I've seen i...
