Some of our customers who have SpiraTest, SpiraPlan, and SpiraTeam installations wanted to know how you can remove the "News Feed" RSS widget from all users' dashboards since it was causing Spira to access the www.inflectra.com domain.

Removing the Widget

You need to go to the file system where Spira is installed, e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\SpiraTeam, and locate the folder UserControls\WebParts\MyPage:

In that folder you will see the following files:

Open up the NewsReader.ascx file in a text editor, and find the line:

            /* Public Methods */
            load_newsItems: function()
            {
                //Retrieve the news items
                globalFunctions.display_spinner();
                Inflectra.SpiraTest.Web.Services.Ajax.NewsReaderService.RetrieveFeed(this._url, this._startingIndex, this._rowCount, Function.createDelegate(this, this.load_newsItems_success), Function.createDelegate(this, this.load_newsItems_failure));
            },

Change it to the following:

            /* Public Methods */
            load_newsItems: function()
            {
                //Retrieve the news items
                //globalFunctions.display_spinner();
                //Inflectra.SpiraTest.Web.Services.Ajax.NewsReaderService.RetrieveFeed(this._url, this._startingIndex, this._rowCount, Function.createDelegate(this, this.load_newsItems_success), Function.createDelegate(this, this.load_newsItems_failure));
            },

Now the system will no longer try and load the news items.
