  1. allow paste in password field

    When I try to log in, it won't let me paste the password into the password field. That's stupid. It's not improving security, just making your tool harder to use.

  2. Selectively mark posts as (un-)read

    Could you implement a function to mark posts "older than ..." as read?
    Would be also nice to set specific feeds as read.

    Thanks :)

  5. Don't mark everything above the clicked-on post as read.

    I read a lot of webcomics/time ordered content in and it is incredibly annoying that clicking on a post automatically marks everything above it (i.e. everything I'm about to read) as read. It means that I have no idea where I'm up to through a browser restart.

    Please Please, never mark something as read if i've never actually opened and/or read it.

    (Tested in Chrome/FF)

  6. allow me to unsubscribe from feeds

    People didn't like the placement of the old "unsubscribe" button. Now, the button seems to be gone entirely. I don't even see an option to re-enable it. Was this intentional?

  7. Unread feeds button?

    Dear Old Reader,

    My feeds are not appearing chronologically and I need to individually click items to read them.

    It would be amazing to have a way to click a button to just read the unread ones. (Clicking "Home" or "All Items" has not worked for me).

    Apart from this, I would like to commend you on a very nice program!

  8. Do you read all these suggestions?

    It just really felt like the idea I just posted was going into a void and would never be read.

    Perhaps a problem with using uservoice for customer interaction instead of email support.

  9. API for subscribing to feed

    I know there's a suggestion for an API, but that's just a huge vague task.

    I'm just suggesting something for adding feed urls via a get request....

    http://theoldreader.com/add_feed?s=http://blog.skepticallibertarian.com/feed/

    or some such ( yes, that just happened to be the feed I was adding now ).

    I was trying to add a new feed via Google's reader extension, and since it was possible to manually decide services to parse the RSS feed, I wanted to specify your service.

  10. Exporting feeds

    Hello! I have imported my feeds from Google Reader. I added some subscriptions. What if I want to export my feeds to another service? Do you have such a feature?

  12. Include audio enclosures when sharing podcast feed items

    When sharing podcast feed items, enclosures are not showing up in the share feed. I used this feature a lot in Google Reader to create my own "mix tape" of podcast items.

  13. Make a users Shared Items an RSS feed that can be accessed by other services.

    This would make it so that my shared items can be accessed by someone using a different feed reader (feedly, or HiveReader, etc...)

  14. support RTL (Hebrew/Arabic)

    Reading Hebrew feeds is painful: The text is left-aligned, and bidi is all wrong, which means if there are any numbers/Latin in a line, the text flow is completely broken.

  16. Make shift+j and shift+k also do what shift+n and shift+p do

    This is how Google reader behaves and it is slightly easier as I often use j and k for navigation and won't have to move the placement of my fingers.

  17. Use ? to dismiss the shortcut menu

    ? does a find job of bringing up the list of shortcut keys.

    It would be nice if it would also DISMISS the list. Right now only ESC works.

    That way you can keep you hands on homerow, hit ? to quickly remind yourself what key to use, then ? again to dismiss it.

  19. add a keyboard shortcut for closing the current item

    I like the new keyboard shortcuts (as of 1 May) but you appear to be missing one for closing or collapsing the item that is currently being read. In Google Reader it's 'o'. Since you use that for opening the post in a new tab, you might use 'x' which would match up nicely with Shift+x (collapse selected folder).
