I have never used news feeds and would like to begin setting some up. However, I don't know where to start. I think I want to go with Google FeedReader - but need instructions. Would someone please help? There are no instructions that I can see with the TLB plugin.

1) Install the news reader plugin
2) Add it on toolbar/menu (right-click New->News Reader)

News reader will come with some RSS feeds, if you don't want then right-click the channel and select Delete.

To add new RSS feed, press "Add new channel" menu item in the News Reader menu, enter URL of the feed and press Next. Also you can drop the URL from the browser into News Reader menu.

How to find the RSS feed URL:
1) Find the button RSS on the web page (look on the top of this page, you'll see the RSS for this forum)
2) Press "Show RSS" button in your browser to view feed and its URL

When all RSS feeds are added, News Reader will check them periodically. And show the notification about new items. News reader show the news text in the popup tip. If you click the news, the web browser will be opened.

One tip: press the channel/news icon to mark news as read.

In the News Reader, the Tool Tip shows the beginning of the article - but my opinion is that the bubble is not open long enough. My suggestion is tha the user be able to choose how long the bubble is open - and provide a method to close the button if one of them happens to be open too long.

News Reader show all text that supply the feed. But most feeds have only the short description of the article.

But can you (or I) adjust how long the bubble stays open? I have a brain impairment and it takes a little longer for me to read what's in the bubble. Thank you.....
