Allow folders to be arranged like individual feeds
Currently I can rearrange my individual feeds how I like but I cannot place a folder wherever I want. Would be cool to allow that. Thanks!
Subscriptions is a default folder that can’t be moved. Please take a look on our tour to learn how to create and arrange folders: http://theoldreader.com/pages/tour

It's not very convenient as is
Thank you Alexander, you have described what I couldn't.

This currently does NOT replicate Google Reader functionality.
Old Reader: Subscriptions not in a folder are in a separate folder, on the same level as folders. A two-tier system.
Google Reader: Subscriptions are a "superfolder" that contains both unclassified subscriptions and folders. Basically, a three-tier tree.
Why is it important? I need my folders sitting between feeds in a big list. Some feeds are logical to combine is a folder, some not; still, there's a need to order them all.
Consider unclassified feeds as singleton folders. It then makes sense to intermix them and folders in a single list.
It already does this, doesn't it?
I think what I am looking for is sub folders under "SUBSCRIPTIONS" (or anywhere for that matter).
Oh, I just added a new feed, and TOR placed it under "Subscriptions" -- which is the area in the sidebar that I think you were referring to? Yeah, that's a folder, haha. So I guess everything must be filed one way or another.
That's so weird... (Or maybe I'm just not understanding what you're looking for? Arranging folders in a certain order via drag-and-drop?)
I tried moving a single feed all over the place within the sidebar, and I couldn't get it to go anywhere that wasn't a folder. If you drag it all the way to the bottom, a new folder is created for it. :P
Hi Kristan, Nope, still not allowing me to move a folder to the top of the feeds like I can with GR. As for moving your feeds from a folder to no folder, try dragging it to the top of the list near "SUBSCRIPTIONS" maybe?
Hm, maybe try again? I was able to rearrange my folders to my liking.
(I could not, however, figure out how to pull a feed out from a folder once it was inside one... Does every feed HAVE to be inside a folder? If so, why?)
