One very important thing for me is this one (ok, it's Summer now - at least at the northern hemisphere - but hey in only six months it's XMAS again) ;D ;D ;D

Kind regards

Suggestion:  Increase the number of entries in the RSS feed from 5 to... 25, maybe?
You can do this by modifying the RSS feed URL to http://www.syntaxbomb.com/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;limit=25

Perhaps a small bug in the Code Archives: the line numbers get copied along into blitz when trying to copy-paste the source codes, which blitz doesn't like.

Huh, that's just silly ::) - I'll see if I slap in a link to just highlight the code.

Yes, copy paste works ok without the line numbers. Try selecting only inside the code box.

Hmm, of course I'm not using Ctrl+a(duh).  ::)
Just the regular Ctrl+C or V. Also tried RightClick>Copy/Paste: same results. Proof?

Copy:


Paste:


It happens when selecting the entire text or only piece of text as well.
I've also checked out the possibility that was a browser specific thingy,  but tried both IE11 and Chrome and makes no difference. I'm on Windows 10 Pro Creators Update and haven't run into this anywhere else yet.

I dunno if is in certain areas only but I was copying from here:  http://www.syntaxbomb.com/index.php/topic,402.0.html

Could be an odd setting on my system, but I find it hard to imagine what could cause this..
I'm not looking forward to be taking out the line number every time, especially on the larger pieces of code.


Perhaps a download button like the original Blitz site isn't such a bad idea, for one thing its more easy(if possible)?

I agree, a Download Source link is needed.  In the mean time, you can go to the official Blitz archive at http://wasted.nz and download from there.

I don't get any line numbers even if I select the whole page, I'm using Win 7 Home Premium + Firefox 54 32-bit.

I would like to ask Qube if he could increased the default code font size by one or even two sizes, as it's smaller than the custom syntax highlighted ones.
