Subscription of newsgroups, deletion of bogus newsgroups, and other related operations are described in this section.
gnus-Group-unsubscribe-group). If it is not contained in the startup file, it is added to the file.
gnus-Group-check-bogus-groups). Bogus means non-active.
gnus-Group-get-new-news). In fact, GNUS reads the active file from the NNTP server again.
The commands c and C (
gnus-Group-catch-up-all) mark all articles as read in a
newsgroup. These commands do not take account of the cross-reference
information in the `Xref:' field, while the command c
gnus-Subject-catch-up-and-exit) in Subject Mode does.
Only subscribed newsgroups containing unread articles are usually
displayed in the Newsgroup buffer. Type L
gnus-Group-list-all-groups) to show all newsgroups which are
The command U (
gnus-Group-unsubscribe-group) reads a
newsgroup name interactively, and toggles its subscription flag if it is
already in the startup file. Otherwise, if it is not contained in the
startup file, it is added to the file. Thus, you can add newly created
newsgroups manually which are not added automatically because of the
options line in the startup file. See section Startup File, for more
information on the startup file and options line.
The command C-k (
gnus-Group-kill-group) kills a newsgroup
from both the Newsgroup buffer and the raw startup file. The last
newsgroup killed with the C-k command can be yanked using the
command C-y (
gnus-Group-yank-group). The command C-c
gnus-Browse-killed-groups) pops up the Browse-Killed
buffer for browsing the killed newsgroups. In this buffer, the killed
newsgroups can be yanked in any order using the commands y and
gnus-Browse-killed-yank). Thus, you can change the
order of newsgroups in the Newsgroup buffer without editing the raw
startup file directly. Since the information on the killed newsgroups
will be stored in the quick startup file, they can be restored any time
unless you lose the file.
A bogus newsgroup is one not in the list of active newsgroups in
the active file. Bogus newsgroups which are deleted or renamed must be
deleted from the startup file (see section Startup File) explicitly by the
command b (
The command R (
gnus-Group-restart) is useful to restart
GNUS using the raw startup file instead of the quick startup file.
Generally speaking, if you want changes to the raw startup file to be
noticed by GNUS, it must be newer than the quick startup file.
See section Startup File, for more information on the startup file.
GNUS reads the active file at start up time to know about currently
active articles. This information is not updated unless you force GNUS
to do so with the command g (
the command R (
