Ignoring HTML versions in Gnus, except for RSS #gnus

๐Ÿ•›๏ธŽ - 2009-09-20

I don't care to see the HTML versions of emails in Gnus, so I have this in my .gnus configuration file:

  ;; Don't display html inline
   mm-discouraged-alternatives '("text/html" "text/richtext" "text/enriched")
   mm-automatic-display (remove "text/html" mm-automatic-display))

Which works nicely for email and news articles. But for rss feeds I would actually like to see the HTML version, with nice links and paragraphs, pictures etc. - so I've set the topic parameters of my rss topic to include this:

  ((mm-inline-text-html-with-images t)
   (mm-discouraged-alternatives nil)
    (union '("text/html")
   (mm-w3m-safe-url-regexp nil))

... i.e. no discouraged alternatives and add text/html back into mm-automatic-display. Works as expected. Great!

Gnus is quite configurable when it doesn't just do the right thing out of the box.
