You could copy /home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-tidings over to the SD card, and replace /home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-tidings with a link there.

Close Tidings first. Then do:

cd /home/nemo/.local/share
cp -r harbour-tidings /media/path/to/sd
rm -r harbour-tidings
ln -s /media/path/to/sd/harbour-tidings

It's untested, but it ought to work this way. Replace /media/path/to/sd with your path to the SD card.

@pycage: loooong time ago meanwhile...

I checked the folders but it seems the single feed media files (mp3/mp4/etc.) are not stored in '.local/share/harbour-tidings/...'. Probably only the config files are stored there.

The media files are not stored on the device. Only the textual contents and the configuration.

@pycage: You're right! I havent noticed this, probably because gPodder (also rss feed reader/player) does save the media files locally. So the 'problem' of outsourcing the media files to an external storage doesnt bother me anymore in case of tidings...

Many thanks.
