Read Post Body

Postby Havic » Fri Feb 02, 2018 5:18 pm

I've just discovered this really underdocumented feature and I'm loving it. It's ability to peak inside of an obfuscated post is awesome.

Couple of issues. If I select several hundred posts I want Newsbin to probe, it tries to open several hundred tabs in my notepad, one for each post, even though I add DisplayReadPosts=0 in my [Settings]. Once I downloaded all these posts I've written a powershell script to chew through them giving me a readable list of what the obfuscated posts really are. Newsbin seems put the read posts in the Read Posts folder under the Data folder and deletes all the files in that folder on start. So if I get distracted and close and reopen Newsbin before I run my script I lose all the read posts I downloaded. It would be nice to have an option to put those files in a Read Posts folder under the folder for that newsgroup and leave it me to clean out, not automatically.

Regardless, the additions to "Read Post Body" code is great, thanks for your constant work.
