This is the list of registry tweaks you can do with pRSSreader to better
suit your needs:

Everything is made in HKCU\Software\DaProfik\pRSSreader

1. Starting in Summary View:

   Create key 'Start In Summary View'[DWORD], set it to 1.

2. When accessing secured sites, certificates are checked. Mostly they
are not 100% correct, so pRSSreader asks you if you want to accept it.
If you want pRSSreader not to check certificates and accept them:

   Create key 'Check Certificated'[DWORD] and set it to 0 (zero).

3. When reading messages, the default behaviour is: if you reach the end
of the message and press down arrow, you are moved to the next message.
If you do not like this and want the old behavior (before 1.3.2):

   Create key 'Msg Scroll Throught'[DWORD], set it to 0

4. If you want more search results when search feeds on syndic8.com.

   Create key 'Search Limit'[DWORD] and set it to the number of results
you want, default is 20.

5. If you are running WM5 and you want File and Tool menu mapped on your
soft keys:

  Create key 'Show Main Toolbar'[DWORD], set it to 0. But main tool bar
will disappear.

6. If you have the option 'Check for new items when handheld inserted
into cradle' active and you insert the device into cradle often,
pRSSreader will check for new items every time. This might be annoying.
You can set minimal update interval:

  Create key 'Minimal Sync Interval'[DWORD] and set it the number of
minutes. If the cradling event occurs in this interval, the sync is not

7. If the new site is added, its properties are displayed. You can turn
this off:

   Create key 'Set Properties After Site Added'[DWORD], set it to 0

8. New site template
   This settings are in HKCU\Software\DaProfik\pRSSreader\Site\
   Those are default values that are set for newly added site, to save
the time with setting site properties.

   'Cache Enclosures'[DWORD], self-explaining: 1 = yes, 0 = no,
   'Cache Html'[DWORD], cache online conetnt for offline browsing: 1 =
yes, 0 = no
   'Enclosure Limit'[DWORD], enclosure limit in MB, enclosures larger
than this limit are not cached
   'Store Images'[DWORD], cache images within feeds: 1 = yes, 0 = no.
   'Today Show'[DWORD], show the site on today screen, 1 = yes, 0 = no.
   'Update Minutes'[DWORD], interval (in minutes) the feed is updated,
0xFFFFFFFF (= use global update interval)

9. Custom date format
   Create key 'Date Format'[STRING], set it to your date format, default
is "d. M. yyyy". For other options see
 and lpFormat parameter (explained below)

This will be published on FAQ page along with 1.3.3 release.

Happy tweaking,
