Why TROMnews is important, and why no one uses it


reshared this

I fixed it for mobile phones. So it should look ok on all devices :).

At one point I remember putting a little homescreen shortcut for TROMnews on my mobile so that I visit it more often. I do visit the site from time to time and I agree that it's an important project, there's no other news site like it. For me the biggest issue when it comes to keeping up with news is my eye strain because the articles can get quite long sometimes. So that's one reason why I don't often read much and stick with podcasts or short videos. Some news websites these days also provide an option to listen to their articles, this not only helps the blind/visually-impaired folks but also people like me who suffer from eye strain issues - so I hope this trend catches on because it's a win for accessibility.

Now you get 200 feeds that each can pull several items every hour or so. A server may struggle with so much stuff. And so the old plugin disabled many feeds daily, and I had to reactivate them to make them update...one by one, manually.

What I'd like is the ability to showcase from where an item is. Like who posted this or that, as it was before. I can only do that if I buy the pro-bro version...


Reading stuff like this is what makes me wanna learn web development, lol. I'd like to see if we can do things in a better way that doesn't involve going through these annoying bugs/limitations.....

@Tio @TROM
Yah I wish I knew how to do these. But we have so many websites it would be impossible for 1 person to do all of these and not use 3rd party plugins/scripts.

@Tio @TROM

Yeah for sure these plugins and stuff makes it quick & easy for you to design websites. You need to know some programming and stuff to manage everything by hand and even then it'll take some time, if I learn enough skills to do this then I'll try to help you with the programming side of things so that you can focus on the content side.
