bookmarklet to go to next item in a folder

Google Reader has a bookmarklet that goes to the next item in a feed or folder. It looks like this:

http://www.google.com/reader/next?go=nextauto&t=4586323219818568841&label=comics

        Do you have to set the token every time?? I had to do it again today. Not worth it when bloglovin has this feature built in.

        This is not working for me again. I get a server error. I'm logged in so what else can I try?

      • galegale commented  · 

        I posted below that I got the fetch error but I tried again in chrome and it works!! Thank you SOOOO much!! Now I need to get my subscriptions better organized.

      • galegale commented  · 

        Didn't work for me. I get a fetch error for any folder I try.

        How do you get a token? I went to the API link but it was just a bunch of letters. It says drag one of these links; but there are no links.

        Thanks for the "continue to other folders" link! Nice turnaround time. :)

      • Chas. OwensChas. Owens commented  · 

        @Dandapani It should be the name of the folder you want to step through. Chris Hillery has found that it seems to be case sensitive, so you may have to try a few versions of the name. My plan is to list all of the folders, but I don't have that coded yet.

        Thanks, but a bit rocky to use. So far not clear what to use for folder=XXXX values.

        One quick feature request: Have the "no new items found" page have a link to the main theoldreader.com webpage, to make it easier to continue reading feeds that aren't in the nextable folder.

      • Chris HilleryChris Hillery commented  · 

        Awesome that this exists, even in its rough state!

        I was able to get it working. Something to note: the folder name in the next?folder=XXXX bookmark needs to exactly match, case-sensitive, the "real" folder name. This is NOT the same as the way it appears in the theoldreader.com web interface, nor is it necessarily the same as the folder name was on Google Reader.

        For example, on Google Reader I had a folder called "Nextable". I imported my feeds from there. (I actually can't remember whether I did an OPML export from GReader or if there was an auto-import process.) On theolderreader.com using the name web interface it appears as "NEXTABLE". However, if I actually click on that, the folder that is displayed is named "nextable". And only that all-lowercase name works for the Next Bookmarklet.

        This is a dealbreaker for me too, I will use whatever app I find that has the "next bookmarket" feature. The gui doesn't matter, I only use the bookmarklet.

      • galegale commented  · 

        This is my one requirement in a reader and only bloglovin has it so far. And I'm not entirely happy with bloglovin.

        Agreed!! The only way I've ever used GR and what I've been searching for every since they announced its demise

      • Chris HilleryChris Hillery commented  · 

        Yes yes yes please. I haven't found any so-called "Google Reader substitutes" that have this incredibly useful feature.

      • jenniferjennifer commented  · 

        This is the number one thing I'm looking for in a reader. When I find it, I will stop looking for a new reader. Hopefully it'll be here, because I'm liking The Old Reader best of all my Google Reader replacement options so far.

        I agree with the other comments. I have Google Reader next button on my toolbar and use only that rather than going into Reader

      • Dandapani .Dandapani . commented  · 

        This is the only way I use Google Reader having this link in my browser toolbar, I click it to get to next post.
