I want to be able to have selected feeds that don't match various saved
searches marked read or otherwise processed. I can't figure out how to do this
unless I duplicate all of my search criteria in the filter. I also need to
know whether my filter runs before or after the matching for searches. So,
what I'd like to proposed is:
Yes, negation of searches is not possible for filters, hence a valid request
for enhancement. I am not sure about "before / after search is run". If a
filter's search matches on a news, its actions are executed. Only one filter
ever is executed for a news, going from top to bottom in the list of filters
I have "saved searches" and the question is are these matched before or after
news filters? I want to choose whether a filter is run before/after we know
somehting matches a saved search.
Does that help explain better?
Well the fact that a news is matched in a saved search has no real impact on
filters. When a news is downloaded, the filter is first applied before its
saved into the RSSOwl profile. Only when the news is saved, will the searches
have a chance to apply. So, a filter will always first be applied to a news
before it would match any search.
