To add an application, right click on an empty space in the 'All'
tab and select 'New'
This will show a new edit box to enter all the relevant information. So working from top to bottom, enter the name of the application e.g. '1by1'c)
From there enter 'My Version'
that you currently have installed, this is crucial because it will analyse the web version against your version and notify if both are a mismatch. (I tend to miss the 'Known Version' because I couldn't see a real benefit in helping me keep up to date.)d)
If you want to separate your applications into sub sections e.g. 'Internet, System'
etc then enter in the corresponding tab names box. You can seen an example of this in the image above. To note the 'All'
tab is shown by default, so there is no way of deleting this.e)
With the URL, paste the URL where the application is updated and shows the current version of the application e.g. 'http://mpesch3.de1.cc/1by1.html'
, because the author of the software always updates this page. Good advice is look for a ChangeLog
page with the newest application at the start and oldest at the bottom. I suggest copying some of my examples to get a better idea.f)
Enter the version that is shown on the page e.g. '1.68' (at time of writing) and click 'Find' What the application will do is search the SourceCode
of the website and find '1.68,'
select advance options and it will show you how it went about this.g)
As you can see what the application does is search from top to bottom, in this example it will look for version:</b>
, once it finds this it will assume the number is next and stop before if finds ,
(comma). Its that simple!h)
Once in a while the website owner will update their SourceCode
, so repeat the steps above and it will rearrange the conditions for the search of the version.i)
If you want to sort your applications in alphabetical order, right click on the 'All'
tab and select 'Sort by Name'
, it will update in all the tabs you have.j)
To check for new versions, click on the button 'Web Update'
located on the main page. If you want to check just a specific application, edit the intended application by right clicking and selecting 'Edit'
and from there click on the smaller version of 'Web Update'
.DONT FORGET TO SAVE!k)
A good tip is if an update is found double click on the 'My Version'
section next to your application e.g. '1by1 is now 1.68 not 1.64 you currently have installed, so double click on the 1.64. What this will do is copy the web version across, so no manual editing involved. To undo the change double click again.
