  • Some feeds aren't working. ... What could be the likely reason?
1. https://www.hindustantimes.com/rss/opinion/rssfeed.xml
- I have opened the url with the chrome browser, I got a xml feed.
- I have opened the url with the FeedMoe, I got a HTTP 403 Forbidden error from the web server.

You can see the error, right click the Rainmeter icon at the bottm-right of the desktop > About > Log tab
FeedReader.dll: Bang before failure (https://www.hindustantimes.com/rss/opinion/rssfeed.xml) - ... (403) ...

Edited:
I don't investigate yet, what cause this error. (user-Agent? or something else?)
We can't get HindustanTimes' feeds with FeedMoe skin directly.
Tech reasons:
- hindustantimes.com is using a Akamai Technologies services.
- In this case, Akamai's server requires client(web brower etc.)'s HTTP request header Accept or User-Agent.
- FeedMoe skin is reading a RSS2.0 feed by plugin FeedReader.dll.
- There aren't any way to modify HTTP request headers in the plugin FeedReader.dll.

Code: Select all

HTTP request header: by FeedReader.dll (2.3.0.0) **There is not Accept and User-Agent header.**

Thanks a lot, nek. Cricinfo feed works for me as well now. I was able to make Hindustan Times feed work with FeedMoe too, with https://rss.app/. It's a decent workaround.
Also, I had set MAX_ITEMS to 20, yet it was only fetching 15 items. Apparently it is a limitation with Youtube. xml for youtube playlists shows only 14-15 items at once.

>> New version available

Twitter feeds (via nitter.net) error
20210314.nitter.net.error.png
It seems that nitter.net service restrict some connections, and there are alternative servers that we can use.

> Public Nitter Instances | https://github.com/zedeus/nitter/wiki/Instances

I picked up some from that list (ssllabs.com Rating:A+, those feed returns https link addresses.)
* [Germany] nitter.nixnet.services 2021-03-18 https to http
* [Germany] nitter.mastodont.cat 2021-03-18 https to http
* [France] nitter.fdn.fr 2021-06-04 unstable
* [Bulgaria] nitter.himiko.cloud 2021-03-18 https to http
* [Germany] nitter.cattube.org 2021-09-01 unstable
* [Germany] nitter.namazso.eu
* [Netherlands] nitter.unixfox.eu 2021-09-01 https to http
* [India] nitter.kavin.rocks 2021-09-01 unstable



How to fix Twitter feeds error. (via nitter.net)
1. Right-click the skin that occured the error, and select the Edit skin.
2. Edit the code (for example)

Code: Select all

;FEED_URL=https://nitter.net/NASA/rss
FEED_URL=https://nitter.namazso.eu/NASA/rss
ITEM_LINK_SUBSTITUTE="(?si)^https?://[0-9a-z-\.]+?(?:\:\d+)?\/":"https://twitter.com/","(?si)^(?(?!https://(?:[0-9a-z-]+\.)?twitter\.com/).+)":""
3. Save the file, and right-click the skin and select Refresh skin



You might like the alternative service. RSS-Bridge service

There is no way to wrap title strings. Only way to see full title is changing skin width.

Changing the skin width
- Scroll the mouse wheel on the Header
- Right-click on the skin > Skin width >



OneTicker is also a Rainmeter skin. It displays several Web feeds in OneTicker and displays full title by scrolling text.

Great work on both skins! :thumbup:
Unfortunately the ticker one comes a bit too late for me: I was using a similar Firefox extension a long time ago before they moved away from the old XUL style extension system, and after that I built my own multiple feed reader (WebParser, no Lua, no plugins; you can check it, if curious, via my signature below). I was recently thinking about adding the ability to order feeds from the most to the least recent one in my similar skin, and I was wondering if your skins (either FeedMoe or OneTicker) support feed sorting by datetime. Or, to be more precise, does the FeedReader plugin that your skins are using support that?

I don't know the FeedReader plugin have sorting functionality.
You could download FeedReader plugin and that includes pdf document for details.
