  2. Multiple UI issues after latest update

    The reader has been resetting itself to Dark Mode periodically. It's a quick keystroke to change it back but it still seems like a weird issue. Happens anywhere from every couple of days to multiple times per day, no history clears or anything in between.

    The (?) button and the Support option under the user profile also seem to be broken. Both cause the page to hang, accepting no futher inputs.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

  4. Increase the limits of the low-end premium plan.

    I can't remember how much I'm paying right now without going back and looking, but I think it's $4 per month. That's fine, but perhaps you could raise the price by $1 and increase the limit to 2000 feeds?

  5. Add subscribe button when viewing a post outside your subscriptions

    When I'm reading an awesome post on the trending feed or shared by a friend (or anywhere else outside of my own subscriptions), I'd like to have a quick and easy way to subscribe to the posts' feed. It would be nice to have a subscribe button right next to the feed label, or at the bottom with the other buttons (star, mark unread, etc).

    This would make it easier to discover new things to read and stay up to date, all within the comfort of The Old Reader!

  7. 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…

  9. Add AI-powered ranking of articles

    Do you subscribe to too many feeds or too fast ones? Both? Me too. That's why I wrote a machine learning-based ranking service (https://github.com/piccolbo/rightload). But it needs to be integrated with a reader. It would also be more powerful the more people use it.

  14. search by article's url

    I want to mark (star, like) article I read in my (amazon kindle) reader
    I have title and url, but (in case of my favorite server) they're quite often changing article titles, so in case when in tor is article not found I must open its web page (url), copy (part of its) title and search again = being able to search for url directly in tor it will be easier for me

  15. Widget to display a list of feeds I'm subscribed to

    I've searched but can't see this suggested elsewhere; apologies if this is a duplicate.

    Google Reader used to have a widget that you could use in, say wordpress, to provide a list of the feeds/blogs you were following, which could be done at a folder level.

    The reason why I'd like this functionality is because I follow a number of IT-related blogs that I'd like to list on my own blog. Whilst I have just hardcoded it, it would be very nice if it could be dynamic and pick up new blogs that I add over in TOR automatically.

  17. Let me find my contacts via Twitter, instead of just FB or Google.

    Simply because most other services let you use Twitter contacts, and I'm sure I have more followers than FB friends using the service.

  18. Be compatible with hint-mode by making all clickable interfaces anchor tags

    tl;dr: Make <div class="pull-left list-header no-left-label">...</div> into an <a> tag.

    In keyboard-focused browser interfaces, such as

    • Vimperator
    • cVim
    • vimFx
    • Vimium
    • qutebrowser

    one can highlight and select links easily without the mouse. Typically, one presses 'f' (follow link) and all the links currently visible get little yellow boxes next to them. Press the keys in the box and you follow the link.

    Demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKyUQZBZRK8

    Links are found by selecting all the 'a' elements on the page. Link hinting typically cannot detect if an arbitrary element has had an onClick event handler added due to browser security features.

    To support link hinting,…

  19. integrate RSVP - rapid serial visual presentation - into your product

    A number of apps using RSVP to increase reading speed for screens are available, integrating one or more with the old reader would improve its functionality
