  1. Sort folders as GR did: By feed order by date, not all feeds collectively by date

    Group each feed in a folder together in the order in which it is arranged. When changing the sort order by date, retain the feed order in the folder. This is how GR did it.

    Currently, viewing the feed of a folder does not reflect the order of the folder; manually ordering the folder structure does not affect the feed order. This is not how GR did it.

  3. How can I search/log key words like I did with Google reader/alerts?

    I cant seem to set up keyword searches on your application- just feeds to web sites? Am I missing something?

  6. Allowing to have "all items" as a start page

    Hello,

    Could it be possible to have an option in the preferences that would allow to have directly the "all items" page when going on http://theoldreader.com.

    Moreover, this would also allow to jump directly on "all items" when clicking on the theolreader extension button on Safari.

    Many thank.

    Best regards,

    Olivier.

  7. <<<< Provision to see "like topics" of a followers >>>>>

    I enjoy the old reader where the world is viewed in one touch of a button. I suggest in addition to "share" topics, a followers may be allowed to view "like" topics of a member.

  8. Allow mark feed as read without having to load the feed

    It would be great if I could mark a feed or a folder as read without having to click on the feed and load all the posts. ie: if I could right click on the feed/folder and choose an option to mark as read, that would really help with efficiency of using Old Reader for me.

  9. don't hide the scroll bar under the "add a subscription" box initially

    When I open The Old Reader, the scroll bar for the subscriptions is hidden "under" the add subscription box. I have to close my uppermost folder to get it to appear. Once it appears, it doesn't disappear, even when moved all the way to the top or when that folder is reopened (which is good). I don't know if this has anything to do with my having a lot of folders and subscriptions or needed a rather large font. It's not a big problem, but I'd appreciate it if you fixed this. Thx.

  10. correct the numbers of items unread

    I frequently find that the number of items showing as unread for a feed in the left column does not match the number showing as unread in the right column. I'm not referring to when that pink message pops up in the upper right telling me an error occurred with the server. I mean that I can go down the items, opening each with the up or down arrows, even reading each one, and the feed list at the left tells me the number is higher than the actual unread count (sometimes it does not seem to have 'subtracted' any…

  11. try appending "rss" to a URL during Feed Validation

    I tried to add http://opensnow.com/dailysnow/tahoe as a feed, but the feed validation step failed:

    "It looks like this is a web page, not a feed. I looked for a feed associated with this page, but couldn't find one. Please enter the address of your feed to validate."

    As it turns out, there WAS a little 'rss' icon, but of course it doesn't show up when I search the page for "RSS" and I have a hard time seeing the little tiny icon. When I finally found it, its URL was simply the original URL plus "rss".

    Seems like it's pretty…

  12. to back-up her/his subscriptions

    At the bottom of settings page is written: "Unhappy? You can export your feeds as OPML file and cancel your account at any time." But To export as OPML doesn't necessary means leaving the service, it may simply mean that someone wants to back-up her/his subscriptions.

  13. Removing oldest read posts instead of oldest total

    There is a limit of around 300 posts per feed. When a feed has more than that the oldest posts are being deleted. Could you please change it so that the oldest read posts are being deleted instead? I have feeds where some articles are longer and some of them are shorter. Usually I don't have much time and I leave longer articles for later and check shorter ones. In this case I'm way under 300 posts cap in my unread posts but the oldest unread are being deleted, because there are also read posts between which I don't care…

  14. mark all as read

    Hi from Portugal. I started using old reader for a few days now and i have a suggestion.
    For me, the "mark all as read" button is too close to the "cancel subscription". Suggest you place it near the other buttons on the right.
    Also, sometimes there's a lag from mark all as read to the updated number on the left side. Keep up the good work and thank you...

  17. When TheOldReader opens on home page (all items) and all folders are closed

    I have many folders with many RSS feeds in each of them. I would like that whenever I open TOR, it will be opened on"All items", AND, that all folders will be closed,
    Please vote for it :-)

    There is a line that says "Name1, Name2 likes this" with names in red, under posts. I would like to hide it.

  19. add a button "go to website" at the end of each feed, so it will b faster to click on it than go up to post title on long post.

    especially on mobile device, it is cumbersome to go up to the post title on long post to be able to click on it and go to the original website (for example to access comments)

  20. Define folder names and feed names more clearly

    Either the folder name needs to "leap out" more, or the feeds should be indented a little. I find it difficult to see at a glance where the headings/feeds start and end.

    Love The Old Reader!
