Hi,

I am running the latest version of FFA on a G5 iMac. Since upgrading to the latest version, I notice that FFA has been tending to crash right after using the FTP module to upload my feed.

Crashed on me also (V 1.6.0.5) but it was in background doing nothing.

Ive just started using it and am testing it out before deciding whether to lay out the $40 on it and would welcome any feedback on it.

I was hoping I could feed an entire webpage of links to new articles on my site, but no luck! Seems I have to add each article manually.

Yes, each link or article is a separate item is RSS feeds.

Yes, saw the note from u folks regarding 'scrapes'. Currently I use a service called Feedfire which scrapes my homepage where I store links to new articles added. I created a custom page for them to scrape but apparently it presents major hassles switching to a new target (something to do with their DB).

Okay, thanks, I'll see how much time it takes for me to go the 'homebrew' route.

Unfortunately, my crash log folder is empty! Just updated to 10.4.5 so am not sure if that cleared yesterday's log.

sorry about that

Okay, it just crashed (again, after an FTP, as someone else reported). I've mailed you the crash code.

Well after relaunching from the last crash, the entire xml file is trashed! Lost all the items, it even overwrote the file on the server (no backup of course).

Gave an end of file error.

Here's what's left of it

It should do just fine, and translate character from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8, if it is actually in ISO-8859-1. Can you give me the URL of that feed, or similar so I can test here.
