FeedForAll Preferences Tutorial Setup Transcript:

Welcome to the FeedForAll Preferences configuration tutorial.

The first step is to run the program, so find your shortcut for FeedForAll and double click on it.

When you first run the program, you'll see this splash screen.

If you would like to purchase the software, left click on the Buy Now button.

If you've already purchased, please watch our FeedForAll registration tutorial.

Once in the program, go to Tools - Preferences.

Here in the preferences section, you'll notice that we have four major headings.

Current Feed, All Feeds, Spellchecking, and Miscellaneous.

The current feed section shows the preferences for whatever feed you have selected from your feeds list.

The All Feeds section shows the global preferences for all feeds within the program.

The Spellchecking section allows you to specify spellchecking preferences.

The Miscellaneous section allows you to specify various global system preferences.

To access your current feed's preferences, left click on the + next to Current Feed and you'll see these options expand.

Remember, these options are only for the feed you currently have selected in your Feeds list.

The first option is Item Fields.

If you want to standardize titles, descriptions and other item fields for the current feed, you can do that here.

The next option is Item Extensions.

If you're using an extension or multiple extensions for your current feed, you can set those here.

In the Item Advanced section, you can leave XML comments that will appear in all items of the feed.

Last we have Smart Date.

In this section, we can specify the feed's publication date or we can specify the publication date of your current feed's items.

If you want to have the your current feed's global date preferences override the global all feeds settings, put a check in either of these boxes.

Below that, we have the All Feeds Global Preferences.

In this section, you should see the following checkboxes.

If Enable Spell checking is checked, the program will attempt to spellcheck your feeds and items.

If this is unchecked, it will disable all spell checking within the program.

If Enable Spell checking is checked, you can choose your specific spell checking preferences, such as ignoring words in uppercase, ignoring words with numbers, and ignoring URL's and email addresses.

The last section is Miscellaneous.

The first option is Program Font.

By default, the font is MS Sans Serif but you can change the font of the interface to any font shown in your dropdown list.

Next is Validation Results.

You can have the program always show the validation results, pass or fail, only show errors, warnings, and repairs, only show errors and warnings, only show errors, or never show any validation results.

Below that, are these three checkboxes.

The first is Disable Skins.

If you don't want to use the custom appearance skins for FeedForAll, put a check here.

Next is Hide paths in feed list.

If this is checked, the program will only show you the feed name instead of the full location and name of the feed.

Last we have Add breakline or enter statements in description fields.

If this is enabled, the program will show you the code for you any carriage returns ore breakline statements that you have entered.

If this is disabled, it will not show the code.
