Thread: Saving messages with knode

    Default Saving messages with knode

    I have used knode for nntp browsing ever since I settled on openSUSE a few
    years back. I have a reasonably large collection of useful messages stored
    in local folders so that I don't lose access to them as knode expires and
    drops them from the original groups. Testing out the KDE4 version of knode
    I find that I am no longer able to drag/drop the messages I want to keep to
    the local folders - in fact, I can see no obvious way to get them there.

    Am I just missing an obvious setting or has this feature gone away? Loss of
    it would be a show stopper for me.

    Well ... you can still forward an article by email and save it as draft instead of sent it. At least it would be in your Drafts folder. But I know this is not what you want. I took a quick look but couldn't find how to drag/drop an article either.

    (slapping forehead!) How simple - never even thought of trying that. Not as
    convenient as drag/drop but workable.

    This is a known bug/feature that predates KDE4. Drag & Drop of messages
    hasn't worked for a couple of years. It is also no longer available via the
    drop-down menus. Automatic filing of messages to a local folder is no longer
    possible. Oddly, one can still create and import local folders but I wonder
    what the developers think they're for if we can't put anything in them once
    they've been created?

    This all has been reported at KDE bugzilla but no-one's taken a blind bit of
    notice and they're still listed as "unconfirmed". I wonder if support for
    Knode is ending - or has indeed ended?

    I've just discovered that some kind souls are doing partial maintenance
    of KDE3. see KDE3 - openSUSE. Things are built so that KDE3 apps
    can run under KDE4.

    The version of knode in the repository listed there seems to work correctly
    under 11.4 with KDE 4.6.0. 'Correctly' means drag&drop works.
