Opera every startup not using the latest index.ini

  • Hello ,

    Each time I restart Opera ( v. 11.50 ) I found my feeds column at the left hand side is gone.

    I found the issue caused because the index.ini Opera using an older version. How could this happen & how I can correct this issue ?

    I kept somewhat a latest index.ini in other drive so that I copy that and paste to the profile>>mail & restart Opera so that I have the correct index.ini and my feeds re-appeared again.

    BUT : if I re-start Opera ., it use back the outdate index.ini & feeds is gone again. ( I have to repeat again the copy/paste index.ini action ...... )

    I would like to see a real fix to that please.

    Thank you very much.
    Edmond.

  • Sound odds. Is the Feeds account still present in accounts.ini?

    So, just to double-check, Opera is indeed closed when you replace index.ini?

    Are you hitting that 5000 index count limit again?

  • Thanks

    Labels are not exceed 5,000

    I need a workaround indeed to close the bed of this issue. Please can you tell me what is the command of "Manage feed" ?

    I need to make a button with this and add something like this ( after command manage feeds )

    Item, "Manage fees" =delay, 500 & click button & Delay, 200 & Delay, 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress tab" & ....etc.

    So that each time Opera start wihtou showing all my feeds I can press a button and bring out the manage feeds dialog , check mark all my feeds & press default button.

    Thank you very much.

  • Look under "[Browser Feeds Menu]" in ui\standard_menu.ini. You'll see it.

  • Sorry to ask , what's the command I should use in order to check mark the 2 feeds items ? I tried many that I know but they didn't trigger the check mark box checked.

    Button20, "Feeds A"=delay , 50 & Subscribe to groups, "rss" & delay , 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress tab" & Delay , 100 & click button & delay , 500 & next item & Delay , 500 & click button

    Button22, "Feeds B"=delay , 50 & Subscribe to groups, "rss" & delay , 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress tab" & Delay , 100 Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress click" & Delay, 200 & next item & delay , 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress click"

    Button24, "Feeds C"=delay , 50 & Subscribe to groups, "rss" & delay , 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress tab" & Delay , 100 Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress space" & Delay, 200 & next item & delay , 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress space"

    next item action is works I can see but just won't check the check mark box.

    Thank you very much.

  • check

  • Once you're in that dialog, I think focus defaults to the search field. If so, you'd have to tab to the list. Then, when on an item, you'd hit space. Then, you'd hit the down arrow and hit space again and so on. When done with the list, you'd tab out to the okay button and hit space or enter.

  • For the issue in question, are you making sure to update/restore the files in the "newsfeed" folder in the "mail" folder when you update index.ini? That's were subscribed feeds are at.

  • Thanks !!!

    I'm not sure if the file are corrupted or what ... I've 7 feeds scribed but the files name showing many from feed_1200000000 to feed_1200000047.

    I'm done to the command as well as assigned Icon to it.
    Problem is, I lack of the command ---> how to check marked the check mark box.

    I can see my command works it can go to search box and can go also to the feed list , also can jump from the 1st feeds to the 2nd , to the 3rd until the last.

    But it wouldn't check mark to the check mark box.

    Thanks

    Hmm, I don't know. While unsubscribed, you could delete all the feed files and then subscribe. That might clear things up. I'd backup first though.

    Hmm, sending the keypress for the spacebar should do the trick. Not sure why it's not working.

  • you meant this : execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress spacebar"

    Thank you
    edmond

  • Yes. I you saying that works?

  • Yes. I you saying that works?

    Unfortunately not .................

    Button24,
    "Feeds Scribeeeee"=delay , 50 & Subscribe to groups, "rss"
    & delay , 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress tab"
    & Delay , 100 Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress spacebar"
    & Delay, 200 & next item
    & delay , 500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress space"

    The check box won't check but I can see it does scrolling through the feed items as command instructed,

    I also have assigned icon with : "sendkeypress click" ., does not response.

    Thank you very much
    edmond

    Spacer2, 1

  • Have also extended the Delay , 200 or 500 to ...
    Delay , 800

    No response, no check on check mark box.

    Thanks

    Subscribe to groups, "rss"

    I have this tied to home + alt and it works to check two feeds in the list and okay out to subscribe to them.

    Subscribe to groups, "rss" & focus next widget & Check item & Next item & Check item & Ok
    

    There is a "Check all" command. But, it doesn't seem to work in this case, so i'm using Check item, Next Item, Check Item ...

  • Subscribe to groups, "rss" & focus next widget & Check item & Next item & Check item & Ok

    awesome !!!! Works !!!!

    Thanks for the time to try for it .
