  1. News and Interests widget is "having trouble loading my feed"


    So, I received the an update that added the new "News and Interests" widget to my windows machine about a week ago from now. Since then, my laptop has gotten it, my friends have gotten it, etc, but despite working on everyone's machine, it refuses to work on mine. It shows this error despite me being connected with working internet:I have tried joining the windows insider beta program, doing an in-place install, and methods 2 and 3 from this Reddit comment, none of them have worked.On my machine I have disabled Cortana through regedit, but I also tried re-enabling it to see if it would work, i

  2. N97 Homescreen feeds missing

    Pilsner -



    Naw you dont need pipes or anything...



    1. Add your feed in the web browser Go to Web feeds > Add new feed.



    2. once the feed is added you should see it in the list 'widgets' for the home screen. SO if in step one you called your feed R2D2, then in step two you should see R2D2 in the home screen widget list (it won't be labeled 'feed' or anything obvious, just
    the name you gave it).



    Hope that helps.

  3. N97 Homescreen feeds missing

    Thanks again for your post. i assumed it should be as simple as adding the feed in the browser and it then appearing in the widget list when i choose add content.



    i've got a feed named bbc news and another called test which i set up to a sky sports news rss feed. however neither appear in the widget list. both appear fine in the feeds list in the builtin web browser and refresh with no errors. i installed a widget
    dave cozens (think that's his name) made called coming next which shows up coming appointments from the calendar on the home screen. that appeared straight away in the widget list so it/ not as if it's just not allowing additions to the list.



    mental............ any other suggestions ideas would be much appreciated..... am think i might have to do a hard reset mind...... seems a bit like breaking an egg with a sledge hammer though lol!

    Maybe you need to recreate the web feed again in the native browser, e.g. the BBC News feed in the following way.



    • select Menu > Web > Options > Go to > Web feeds
    • select Options > Web feed options > New feed
    • Set Title = BBC News, Address =
      http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml
      , Automatic updates = (desired update interval)
    After creating the above web feed, it should be found with name "BBC News" in the Add Content widget list.



    If you still cannot find the web feed, it might be that the web feed is already added to the home screen, in that case you cannot see or select it from the list. Try removing the home screen widgets and check if the web feed widget appears in the list after
    that. Try also creating the feed with another name, in case the old "BBC News" widget name is still in use (even though not visible on the home screen).
