These are old Opera 7 tips from previous releases, see Opera7Tips for the latest tips for V7.5.
[Search Engine X] Name=&Spell Check URL=http://www.spellcheck.net/cgi-bin/spell.exe?action=CHECKPG&string=%s Query= Key=c Is post=0 Encoding=utf-8 Search Type=49 Verbtext=17063 Has endseparator=-1 Position=-1 Nameid=0
Then, edit your menu.ini (see EditingINIFiles for help) and find the section [Edit Widget Popup Menu] and add the following line:
Item, "Spellcheck" = Select all & Copy & Go to page, "c %c"
If you have "reuse existing page" turned on this does
not duplicate the page alas, and therefore will cause any page with an input field other than M2 to be lost. Workaround is to hold the 'shift' key when you choose the 'Spellcheck' option.
Download this visual basic script, save to a specific place (in the example it is c:\winnt\spell.vbs) then add this to your [Edit Widget Popup Menu]:
Item, "SpellCheck" = Select all & Copy & Execute Program, "c:\winnt\spell.vbs","%c"
nntp/rss is a Java-based bridge between RSS feeds and NNTP clients, enabling you to read your favorite RSS syndicated content in a newsreader, including M2. It contains both an NNTP server and an RSS aggregator, with a web interface for administration and monitoring. RSS feeds are represented as NNTP newsgroups.
Setup is easy :
1. Download, Unpack, Install & Run nntp//rss.
2. Add your newsfeeds through the local administration interface
3. Add 127.0.0.1 as a new newsserver through Mail|Manage Accounts|New News Server. Accept all defaults.
4. Subscribe to your 'newsgroups' by clicking the link or Mail|Newsgroups.
5. Retrieve new mail by Mail | Check | 127.0.0.1
Your rss messages should be rolling right in and you can handle them just like they were newsgroup messages.
It is even possible to post to Blogger, LiveJournal? or MetaWeblog? blogs from within M2.
1. When adding the names of the feeds avoid non [a-z1-9_.] characters and prepend the names with 'rssfeed.' or something similar. This will allow you to filter more easily.
2. You might want to set 'download message body when checking' in the newsserver setup to download the message right away into M2, otherwise it will be retrieved on first access from the local newsserver.
3. Don't show newsgroup messages in the 'Unread' view, so you can have a clear distinction between your mail messages and Blog posts.
The Blogstreet IMAP RSS aggregator allows you to create an account, configure your feeds and will allow IMAP retrieval of those feeds. There is no local install necessary.Starting with Opera 7.20 this should be a viable option since it has account separation, allowing you to keep RSS messages and regular email messages apart.
The bookmark manager (ctrl+alt+b) is not entirely intuitive. Here is an alternative interface, (See here for screenshot, points relate to the following list). It adds:
To do that, change [Bookmark Manager Dialog] in dialog.ini (Opera program directory, note this gets overwritten on new install, and make a backup first), to the following (close Opera first):
[Bookmark Manager Dialog] Title = 21525 Group0, 0, , 0, 0, 400, 400, Size, End Quickfind, 0, Quickfind_edit, 0, 0, 120, 23, Fixed Button, "View/Sort", , 270, 0, 80, 23, Move right=Show popup menu, "Bookmarks Panel View Menu" Button, "Collapse", , 130, 0, 60, 23, Fixed=View style, 0 & Close all items Button, "Expand", , 189, 0, 60, 23, Fixed=View style, 0 & Open all items Bookmarks, 0, Bookmarks_view, 0, 30, 350, 360, Size Label, "Please Note: for Root Folder to work, Trash MUST be last in the bookmark order.", , 0, 390, 400, 23, Move down Label, "To collapse / expand properly, the buttons will automatically switch to Full View.", , 0, 415, 400, 23, Move down Button, 67345, , 360, 0, 75, 23, Move right=New bookmark Button, 22151, , 360, 30, 75, 23, Move right=New folder Button, "Root Folder", , 360, 60, 75, 23, Move right=View style, 0 & Close all items & Go to end & New folder Button, 67346, , 360, 90, 75, 23, Move right=Edit properties Button, 67347, , 360, 150, 75, 23, Move right=Cut Button, 21207, , 360, 180, 75, 23, Move right=Copy Button, 67348, , 360, 210, 75, 23, Move right=Paste Button, 67218, , 360, 240, 75, 23, Move right=Delete Button, 162500, , 360, 300, 75, 23, Move right=Show popup menu, "Bookmarks Import Menu" Button, 162560, , 360, 330, 75, 23, Move right=Export bookmarks Button, "HTML Export ", , 360, 360, 75, 23, Move right=Export bookmarks to HTML
If you want to change the HTML export so it only saves any selected bookmarks, replace the last line above with (suggested by Klinx):
Button, "HTML Save ", , 360, 390, 75, 23, Move right=Export selected bookmarks to HTML
Opera 7 allows tooltips to be turned on/off in Preferences » Mouse and Keyboard, But for more control, use these opera6.ini settings (taken from the Opera support page):
[User Prefs] Popup Link Address= 0 | 1 Popup button help= 0 | 1 Display Link Title= 0 | 1
Edit the skin, and find the INIFile (skin.ini) in the skin ZIP file you use, and add the following lines to the top of this file:
[Options] Pagebar max button width = 350 (adjust to taste) Pagebar min button width = 100 " "
This means that when there is room, the page tab expands to show more of the title up to that limit. As you add more pages to the page bar, these then gracefully scale their size down. If you want
to force tabs to be the same size (like the windows skin) put in equal values for both options.
To save some space on the page bar, replace the following images in your skin ZIP file:
small_buttons/windowbar_doc_incomplete.png (only if you want to lose the loading indicator)
With this 1x1 pixel .PNG image (right click here to download it) (note, keep the name the same as the original files, or else the Opera won't find them).
