  1. Add subscription bugs

    Hello!

    Some subscriptions can't add from the very first. For example, try add this feed http://motor.ru/export/atom/ Try about five times, but only get message about invalid link. Try one more time and it was successful.

    And with some other feeds have the same problem.

      • Mark unread doesn't seem to work correctly

        Marking unread doesn't seem to work right. I click the button on an article, then collapse it. But it's still showing as greyed out. However, the sidebar will show that feed as having an unread item. It will continue to do so (even though that article still looks read) until I mark all items in that feed as read.

        • 'Big Picture' feed is warped.

          The photo preview of The Big Picture's RSS feed is not displaying properly - it's stretched/warped. Fix this please.

          • Clarify the bottom left dot.

            The bottom left "dot" next to the star is a mystery. I click it, now it's a filled dot. What is this and what did I do? It should give some feedback to let me know what it is doing.

              • Problems in Signing in

                First time I used the AOL Reader, I signed in using my Google Account, then requested the beta access. Upon receiving the invitation, I was able to access the Reader, and, importing my Google Reader data, I did browse the feeds I used to. But, few days later, I couldn't sign in anymore (it keeps looping as "Ask to Sign In" -> "Sign in screen" -> "Validation as Google Account" -> "Request beta access"). But everytime I try to request the access, the system says my account is already associated with an account.
                I don't Know if this is a…

                • Make font size options work right

                  List of article titles on right column won't change after selecting one of all sizes. Default font is kind of tiny to read on my iPad mini and computer's web browser

                    Hi,

                    You can change the size of the font by the “=” shortcut. These font changes take affect when with different views, due to the fact that, in list view, the distance between each item is a set. if you change the view, the font sizes will take effect. I hope this helps!

                    Thanks!

                    Enable export of an OPML file from the aol reader product.
                    It's nice that I can import OPML from reader.google or other locations, but I'd also like to be able to move my data out if necessary in the future.

                        - The left column should not be fixed, you should be able to move the column to see the labels properly.

                        - Most of the items that have videos included these are not directly visible, like google reader and other readers.

                          This is very important to me. Automatically marking items as read is a showstopper for me.

                          • Make starred items display all items

                            It would be nice if the starred category displayed all items instead of just unread items. I like to star articles and return to them later.

                            I could set "Starred" to display all items, but it changes that setting for all feeds, which I do not want. Alternatively, you could just have the setting for "Starred" separate from the rest of the feeds.

                            • Automatically import my google feeds

                              Automatically import my google reader feeds and related data such as stared items and history when I first log in with my google account.
                              Having to manually export from google and then import (desktop only) is annoying and also means I can't try out the service due to being only on mobile devices at the moment.

                                Imagine i'm reading my feeds and i mark one item to be as unread. At the end, my unread list counter has the value of 1, since it related to the item i've marked. When i go to the same feed again later (the next time i check the news), as i go along the items, if i mark the same item as unread again (because it still interests me), and i don't mark any other item, my unread list counter has now the value of 2. It doesn't realize that it is the same item.

                                      As per the above it doesn't work once you've finished reading. Still displays previously read feeds. Thanks for closing so I couldn't even reply.

                                      Once again: EVEN THOUGH MARK AS READ IS SELECTED.

                                        Hi,

                                        This should work as expected now. A message stating "no unread articles should be displayed when all articles are read. If it still does not work, feel free to leave a comment or send a message to support. If you send a message to support they will better be able to address the issue.

                                        Thanks,
                                        The AOL Reader Team

                                      • Unread counts get out of sync

                                        I am having an issue where my unread counts get out of sync with how many unread articles there appear to be. I'm not sure if the count is wrong or the feed is wrong -- but I know they don't match.
