The help page  states that number of feed items to keep for each feed is customisable, but I can find this neither in the user interface (Feed properties) nor in the configuration file (clawsrc under [rssyl]).
Did I overlook this setting, or was it removed at some point?
I find it a useful setting, at least for high-traffic lists that I need not keep track of always.
This is a bug tracker, not a help forum. For the users' mailing list see here: https://claws-mail.org/MLs.php
That option has been removed.
Thank you for the information.
I was not really precise, but there really is a bug. Namely, the RSSyl plug-in does not function according to the documentation. There are two reasonable ways to define this issue after establishing that this function is simply removed. Either as a feature request or as a bug report of the mentioned webpage.
Moreover, in my opinion the help forum would have been useful in retrospect if I overlooked the configuration option. Since the function was removed, there is an issue that could be solved.
the documentation has been updated
