• Announce of new files

    From Angel Ripoll@2:341/66 to Todos on Sunday, April 12, 2020 20:31:54
    Hola Todos!

    I want to make only one announcement of new files every X days. How can I do that?
    How can I make sure that only the files that arrived on my system less than X days ago will be output?

    Un saludo,

    Delay the htick and incoming file processing by X days.

    New files will arrive at your inbound and stay there until processed.
    That will announce files that arrived during the X days.

    htick will create new file announcements (if so configured) whenever you run "htick announce". So run that when you want the new files announced.

    Hola All!

    It has already become clear to me how to announce new files every X days.

    Now I am wondering if it is possible to configure the way to advertise them. That is, whether or not I can put a header before the ads and a footer at
    the end which I can configure

    Yes, you need htick to announce to a file. Then you can edit that file as you please and post it. Use @filename for the AnnAreaTag.

    You should be careful. Ads are overrated. They are dupe traffic without additional information. Golded can initiate a file request from an announcement
    and needs the AKA and the filename for that. All connection data is part of the
    mailer and the mailer would fetch the data from the nodelist.

    Why should i use an e-mail when you have a ftn aka?

    Dupe information that's already written in the Origin: line.

    My mailer would find that in the nodelist.
