Specific File Help...

Postby pure » Mon Aug 23, 2010 6:36 pm

I am having trouble with internet search.
It never used to have a problem.. but now I can't get it to work.

for example:

When i do a search for p-ffcb
there would be a few results which are inclusive

however when I do a specific search such as p-ffcb.r24
it would not return a result.

What am i doing wrong??

p-ffcb.r24

It's not stored at that level of detail. If you search for p-ffcb then select the result and hit Ctrl-H, it'll show an expanded view of the results within which you ought to be able to find this single rar file.

This only works in 5.57.

Have you checked the giganews control panel lately? I think 5.57 giga has been released. I'll have to check with dex. If you're stuck with 5.55, just pause Newsbin and select them for download then delete the ones you don't want from the download list.

Version 5.57 for Giganews is available on our site. There is also a link in the Message of the Day screen that appears when you start Newsbin for Giganews unless you disabled it. You can download Newsbin for Giganews 5.57 here.
