  3. Bug with youtube favicon

    When I imported some youtube feeds from an opml file they have the url like so:
    https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=XXXXX

    However, I currently have the seem feed in my rss that's:
    http://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=XXXXX

    The problem is only the http one has a YT favicon. The https one ends up with a generic rss thumbnail. Since the http one redirects to https they should both have the same thumbnail.

  4. Changing font size within the article area

    Would be a very helpful feature for accessibility without having to change the whole page structure by page zoom which affects the subscription column, buttons and overall readability.
    Thank you.

  6. Get emails delivered to Newsletter subscriptions

    Many the blogs I read don't support RSS, but do send their posts in a monthly newsletter.
    The ability to subscribe to an news letter with an oldreader would be useful.
    See https://www.inoreader.com/ as a reference.

  9. M\ake it possible to log problems directly rather than having to enter it here.

    I'm a paying user, and I am getting 405 errors when I try to log in, or to do a "forgot password" (which I haven't, but was trying to see if I could actually make something work).

  10. make download reliable

    If i don't spend 2 hours to download just one podcast mp3,
    I won't be able to get one.

    So i would call play.podtrac.com and traffic.libsyn.com are unreliable.

    Support@theoldreader.com reject my msg.

    Otherwise, it is good.

  11. Fix Shift/Ctrl-Click opens the target on the current tab

    Hello!

    I have a problem with the web interface of TheOldReader. In almost all web browsers users can control where a clicked link should be opened:

    • Control+Click to a URL opens the link in a new browser tab;
    • Shift+Click to a URL opens the link in a new browser window.

    That works in TheOldReader if I click on the title of an article. Unfortunately, TheOldReader tries to enforce a different behavior. If links are clicked inside an article TheOldReader opens the link in the current tab which is unexpected and very inconvenient.

    For me this is extra inconvenient because I…

  12. The "Star" button does not remove the added article from Pocket after deleting it.

    Currently, flagging an article as an asterisk adds it to the Pocket app. After removing the asterisk, the article is also removed from Pocket. Can this be changed?

  13. Mark posts above currently displayed post as read (similar to "older than" but not by date)

    This is a little similar to https://theoldreader.uservoice.com/forums/187017-feature-requests/suggestions/4149552-list-view-bulk-action-mark-some-as-read, except that I think having to mark checkboxes on each post would be incredibly tedious for the use case I have in mind (especially on mobile). https://theoldreader.uservoice.com/forums/187017-feature-requests/suggestions/3803731-provide-a-partial-mark-as-read-mechanism-for-list is also somewhat similar, although that appears to have been "completed" in a way other than what I have in mind here.

    As described in the second post, I would like to be able to mark only part of a folder as read, with a behavior similar to "Mark all as read Older than..." feature, but without reference to a specific age of post, rather…

  15. URGENT: Amendment needed to page on your website

    Good Afternoon,

    Following up from my previous email, regarding the broken PDF on your website.

    URL- https://theoldreader.com/profile/bc368d756691d406d3cd7625

    Under the anchor - Nobel Prize

    The link still appears to be broken. I strongly recommend this is replaced with the following
    https://selectra.co.uk/sites/selectra.co.uk/files/pdf/chemistry2013.pdf

    As I'm sure your aware a broken link leads to

    1. User frustration
    2. It gives the impression you don't do regular housekeeping
    3. It can harm the credibility of the website
    4. It can hurt your SEO and page rankings

    Please let me know when this has been completed. A member of our team will be making a follow-up…

  17. URGENT: Amendment needed to page on your website

    Good Afternoon,

    I hope this email finds you well.

    It has come to my attention that your website contains a link to a pdf about The nobel prize in chemistry, that has become erroneous. This link no longer works as the website no longer exists meaning the relevant information is no longer apparent as it was before. I have seen insight data and am now aware that your website was included in the list of referrers.
    As a matter of urgency, I would like to request that you update this link as soon as possible.

    The link on your website…

  18. Some information is missing

    From RSS feeds of JACS journals some articles are missing.
    For example:
    http://feeds.feedburner.com/acs/jacsat
    from 20 articles on the cite mentioned above, 6 are missing when I check The Old Reader cite.
    So, it seems that some information is not transferred or transferred incorrectly. I am not sure if it is the case for all scientific cites or only for JACS journals.

  20. Implement activitypub to allow people from the fediverse to follow my shares

    With ActivityPub protocol being accepted as a W3C standard, it would be a good idea to have it in the old reader.
    ActivityPub is implemented in a range of softwares like Mastodon, Pleroma, PeerTube, Funkwhale, Misskey and Plume to name a few. More implementations are coming and it means friends on Mastodon or any of those softwares could follow my profile in the old reader for instance.

    There's some explanations on implementation details over here :
    https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/06/how-to-implement-a-basic-activitypub-server/
    And here :
    https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/07/how-to-make-friends-and-verify-requests/

    And the w3c specs are here:

    https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/

    It would be very nice to have more friends being able to…
