Graphical Reminder on website which article was latest read?

Post by Dolphin0 » Sat Dec 08, 2018 2:27 pm

Hi,

I have several websites where RSS is not possible so unfortunately there is no way to immediately forward in real time every single new blog / article / post / feed to email address. Been researching RSS Feeds desktop or web application and neither of them offer both of my main requirements: unlimited feeds and particularly ability to permanently manually delete particular post/feed/blog. Having it deleted automatically after particular time period has passed is unacceptable for me. The feed, on RSS Feeds application must be able to be manually deleted by me but as i said i haven't found free of charge application offering this.

So I got different idea but not sure how to do it: Since websites have many (few hundreds) DAILY new articles/feeds posted, I would like to manually put on webpage some extremely easy and fast to be seen, while scrolling up and down, reminder (preferable graphical) which post was latest reviewed by me even if it goes to older page.

So next time when i run Firefox or when i reopen the same website (webpage), i will see very soon which feed was reviewed by me as the latest one and from there i can go to next one which was posted later after the one which was latest reviewed by me.

This way, i would not need to all the time write down the title which one was latest reviewed and every time search for it manually when i come back to the website next time. Particularly if that latest reviewed feed/post gets to some of older webpages, e.g. page 2 or 3 etc, i will save a lot of time not needing to search that feed.

I wonder if such firefox plugin or any other type of application exist?

Your answer would be highly appreciated, thank you!

Interesting Qt but (F)CIM...! :mrgreen: (Read my Sig...)
If your Qt is "so specific" to FF that you decided to post in the 'iMacros for FF' Sub-Forum, then mention your FCI...! :roll:

You came to our Forum meaning you already have some "Ideas"..., what make you think you could implement the Functionality that you want with iMacros...?, and what did you try...?
And what other Options do you still have "open" or are still investigating...?

What you want could indeed be implemented with iMacros, maybe in combination with some other Tools, I would have a few "Solutions" in mind, but hum..., all a bit "cumbersome" I'm afraid, I hope you are a mini-bit "Technical", ah-ah...! :wink:
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
