  1. wrong unread feed counts and new tags

    I have two problems:1- some of my unread feed counts are zero 0 but there are new posts in those feeds and when I click on feed I can see them!!!2- it is impossible to create new tags. It will disappear just after creating new tags. Why?

      • Please bring back the old font. The new font is too large and I preferred the old font for article summaries. Or have some font options

        The new font is too large and I preferred the old font for article summaries. Or have some font options avaiable for the reader to pick from?

            • full feeds issue

              There seems to be an issue displaying some full feeds in the main pain. For instance, http://feeds.guardian.co.uk/theguardian/rss

              The full text of the article is visible in the feed, but aol reader only shows the first paragraph, requiring me to jump to the website needlessly.

                • please work with the community - not go off half cocked and make the RSS reader you want

                  So after google reader shut down I wandered looking for a good reader, I hated them all, they all had flaws that made them unusable to me.

                  Then I found aol reader, it had a few flaws but I could make do...
                  Then this update hit last month and I am hating aol reader now...

                  I have another post where I list of lot things that should be changed, the ui is horrible and non intuitive. you click something and everything shifts, this shouldn't happen... menus controls should not jump around...

                  Today I find myself frustrated with your search method,…

                    • Remove the bold font.

                      All of the article titles are now in a dark bold font. You might call it helpful for determining read and unread articles, but I don't like it. The previous way of whether the article is gray or not gray was fine.

                      Please at least give this an option to choose from in the Settings.

                      • what to fix with current retool you did

                        So, reader has become unwieldy over night. I'm not impressed.
                        Now I'm all sorts of annoyed and kind of want to use something different to RSS with while I wait for this overhaul to unoverhauled.

                        Here is my beef with this redesign(some items may have already been like this but i'm not differentiating them):
                        An expanded/opened item -
                        Feed name grows in size, why?! wasted space, leave it at original.
                        Large 6 buttons to right of feed name appears, make smaller
                        6 buttons should collapse to a context menu for the item next to the star when the item is…

                          • How do I get rid of that top menu bouncing back and forth with the mouse?

                            The top menu used to be static. Now it defaults to missing. Every time I start AOL Reader now it does not give me my sidebar. I have to remember that I must put my mouse to the top of the page to find the missing menu and then remember which icon to hit to get my sidebar.

                            The menu disappears if I move my mouse away and reappears when I move my mouse up. In other words, the menu pops up IN THE WAY every single time I try to mark a feed as read. Every last time. I…

                            • Original site view

                              I would like to see an original site view option.

                              That is, ability to read the content of a feed exactly the way it was meant to be seen in the AOL Reader without having to click to open the web page in a new tab/browser.

                              • Bug: Feed folder display inconsistency.

                                I have an issue where the feed name is not displaying under its folder in the left panel, despite feeds items displaying in the right panel. The count is correct in both places.

                                This issue persists when I refresh the page.

                                See attached screen shot. Note that "NISLT TF2" doesn't appear on the left.

                                • Disappear feeds

                                  Hello!

                                  Some feeds disappear. Watch this problem about 2 days ago. First of all, yesterday, I want to read one of my feed. Two days ago I left some articles unread in this feed. But yesterday when I open this feed I saw in top some newest articles. It's wrong because of I have "Oldest first" setting. And I looked this feed and didn't find unread articles there should be, it just disappear. Then today disapear some feeds completely. For a example I have feed with about 200 unread articles, but today I don't see it at all.
                                  My settings…

                                    • smart feed for search keyword in articles

                                      Hi,

                                      I searched all ideas but could not found what I am exactly looking for. Can we have smart feeds, that only searches in the feeds that we are subscribed and subscribe to that feed and see if an article popped up on the topic we are really interested in?

                                      To further explain the feature I am asking for, it is basically similar "search folder" functionality in MS Outlook.

                                      Regards,

                                      6 votes

                                      • Problem with umlaut

                                        Very recently any RSS feed in reader.aol.com has problems with german umlaut charecters.

                                        instead of ä I see ä
                                        instead of ö I see ö
                                        instead of ü I see ü
                                        Also ß is shown wrongly as ß

                                        The problem occurs only with Chrome 44
                                        Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/44.0.2403.52 Safari/537.36

                                        Firefox Developer Edition 40.0a2 does show umlauts correctly.
                                        Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:40.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/40.0

                                        Running OSX 10.11 Beta2, System language is US english

                                        From within Chrome console, executing document.charset; does return "UTF-8".

                                        • Full view mark as read is better to be marked when the article was completely out of the screen.

                                          In full view, one can choose to mark the present article as read. This is great and convenient. However, it was marked as read when the article only in the middle of the screen. Should one option be added to choose mark the present article in full view mode after it fully disappears from the screen. The problem is that if the article was marked as read, the font of the title will be in gray color, which is much uncomfortable for fast reading.
