    Default Want full story get only part from rss

    Hi, I got a laptop for Christmas and it beats anything I've used so far! I can actually use all these great tools that the admin would not put on his hard drive! Today I decided to try rss in hopes of getting news from various news sites for offline viewing. I used newbeuter. What I wind up getting is the xml without the links that are provided. I kinda want the whole story not part. I've tried using w3mir but it does not span hosts. I also tried wget but it mirrors the whole web, even if I set it's depth to 3 it still gets way to much information. Does any one have any ideas?

    There isn't much here that tells us what you are having and using and doing.

    Which version of openSUSE?

    Which desktop environment (KDE, Gnome, .....)?

    Which program to use RSS with? (I use Akregator, but there are many more possibilities).

    I think you guys misunderstood me, I'm getting the full rss post but I desire more information on the subject. I am seeking a tool to download the links located within the rss page.

    Really?! I've just picked an RSS post at random and it has 17 HTML
    links. Would you really want all those downloaded automatically?

    Yea, why not? 17 html files would not be that big 17*20KiB == 280KiB + 5*20 a generous calculation for the css-s.
    17 large jpegs or pod casts would be a different story but, I can always manually edit the occasional one out.

    OK, it's not something I'd do as many links are largely irrelevant. If I
    want to see one, I'll just click on it. Still, each to their own.
