Is there any way that in QuiteRSS i can recieve notifications only if they meet the filter rule?, i only want to be notified when something matches the rule, i dont want to be notified when anything new in the feed appears. Can i do this with QuiteRSS or Not?. I set a rule for it to notify we when it matched the rule but it doesn't.
if you set all news not matching your rule to read then those will not be notified.
How do you do that?
I want to read the other news from the feed but i only want to be notified on the items that match the filter rule!, i dont want the news that doesnt match the filter to be automatically marked read.
You can use the action "Mark As Read". How does your rule look like?
You can read them if they are marked as read.
This is my filter rule setup - http://imgur.com/L6SEqiW
Create a new filter- This is an example how you can set up the rules.
Match all conditions
Title Regular expressions ^(?:(?!Alice*To*Zouruko).)*$
action: Mark News as Read
You need to put ths filter on top of yours in the list to make it run first.
I dont want it to be read!, I only want to be notified when an item matches the filter rule!, I dont want to be notified for any thing else unless i allow the whole feed.
And this is how it works..
Alternatively you can make the non matching news appear in the notifiers background color
That makes no sense!, whats the point of having an action in the filter settings to notify the user of a matching rule if it can only work if it notifies you of all new content in the feeds. That defeats the purpose of having that action in the filter settings to begin with.
The action is only about the appearance. So you can recognize the news group by the color. And that makes sense.
So there is no way to only be notified for items that match the filter rule?
Yes there is as described above.
The fact that you don't like the solution doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.
So the second filter over the original filter would mark everything besides the search terms as marked read?
Yes, that's the idea.
Afterwards you can use the pre-defined filters.
So I would keep the original filter I showed you and then create a second one with the same terms using that algorithm you showed?. Also why do you have to do this in QuiteRSS?, most RSS readers will automatically show a notification when something matches the filter terms.
Yes, your original filter remains. That will deal with the matching news. The new filter deals with the non-matching news.
To filter the news in the classical way you use the pre-defined news filters.
The rules you set up are more preparations than filters.
You cannot apply them, you apply the actions under certain conditions..
So for instance if i only want to be notified of content that says "Berserk" & "Seikaisuru Kado" in the title i would put Title -> Doesnt contain -> Berserk and then set the action to mark rnews as read?
That should work in your case as well. The approach I proposed is more generic.
