Install:

You don't need to install any stuff* to execute Fresh Del.icio.us. Only a simply double click, that's all. The directory called Lib contains all necessary libraries to execute the applications so you can't delete it.

You can  stop de process at any time.

Test Links Screen:

You can view specific information about any posted link: description, tags ... everything! Also, you can filter the links you want to see choosing between the options onthe box of the right side.


Manage wrong links

Every time you test your del.icio.us account bad links are saved inside a XML file, called "[User]-delicious-wrong-links.xml".  In the future, if you test again your account and one link is still in a bad status, his counter of failed tests will increase by 1.

There is 2 different ways to delete bad links: Selection a bad link and delete it or delete all the bad links which counter is ove a limit of failed tests. This limit is specified by the user.

We suggest that all links pass 5 tests before delete them.  Each test should be done about 2 weeks after the last one.

You can also filter bad links you want see, to do this you have to choose the stat in the top of the application.

The program will only delete bad links that you see on the screen, to delete all existing bad links you must activate every checkbox available at the top-right side of the application.

To save on the XML file and mark the bad links click on Save & Mark. To go back to main screen, click on close.

Delete links

There are 2 ways to delete posts:

  • Delete a selected bad link:  Select the bad link on the table and click the button called Delete selected, can't be easier.
  • Delete bad links which are over a limit of failed tests that you have fixed: you only have to choose the limit in the right-top of the screen and click the button called Delete.

IMPORTANT: The deleted links can't be recuperated.

IMPORTANT: FreshDel.icious don't have any responsibility if one or more links are deleted due to an user or application error.

Mark wrong links

When bad links are saved in the XML file they are alse marked in your del.icio.us account on the description field. At the end of the description field the text: "[Mark as WRONG LINK by FreshDel.icio.us]" will be added and the tag WrongLink will be added too. This can be disabled deselecting marking inside  Manage wrong screen.

Filters

A filter is a link and a some texts. For this link the application will try to find the texts in the content, If it finds the link will be filtered.  The link can be a part of the original link, like the root:

examples:
www.abcd.com
www.abdc.com/xyz , or
www.abcd.com/xyz/ijk.html
