        • Cannot rename a category

          Going to organize -> rename a category, it does not change the name. Just stays the same.

            • pictures on subscribed blogs don't show up in some posts

              In some posts, pics in the posts show up fine, but in some posts, no pics inside the post show up.

              This is a big issue for me.

              • You are grouping by blogs, there should be an option to just sort by date, I want the latest in my feeds in a particular category

                when I "group" blogs by adding them to a specific folder, I want you to treat their articles as belonging to one blog and to list them by date, but you still group them by the blog they belong to in the reading pane and only sort by date within that grouping. This defeats the whole purpose of putting them in the folder in the first place.

                  • Create folder for tags

                    I would like to create a folder and to this folder drag different tags.

                    For example to a folder called "Programming languages" I will drag the tags PHP, Java, Python,Ruby ....

                    • Add SPACE shortcut to go to next feed subscription.

                      After reading through -let's say 10- feeds, at the bottom of a subscription hitting N or space does not do anything. Please add a keyboard shortcut to go to next feed subscription like google reader does.

                        Hi,

                        You can now click the n/j/space buttons to go to the next feed when you are finished reading a feed. You can also click “shift+n” to go straight to the next feed.

                        Thanks for the suggestion!

                      • Bug in rendering UI at the left pane

                        Hello.

                        There's an graphical/visual issue in the left pane.

                        I clicked on the button to open the AOL Reader options, then clicked on the option to organize my webfeeds and finally clicked on the 'Add Tag' button. Nothing happened. Then I clicked on the green '<' button to go back and this is what I got:
                        http://awesomescreenshot.com/0321gokp8a

                        Please, fix it as soon as possible -- I've found a bunch of bugs in a few hours I've been using AOL Reader.

                        Thank you very much.

                        • There is no way to import feeds

                          There is no way to import feeds, no link, no button, no nothing. I've looked everywhere ... why does that option not display? This is all I get when I click the + button: http://prntscr.com/1bxbp5

                          PLEASE do not close this until it is resolved!

                          • time displayed when the feeditem was created.

                            Right not it just says something like 9:03pm. Even if this was just some minutes away. It would be nice if it would display the difference between now and its creation and if its bigger than 1 or 2 hours it should show the actual time.

                              Hi,

                              We have made some changes to allow users to see both published and fetch time. Now both times will appear if you hover on the time icon in article view or the time in collapsed views.

                              Thanks,
                              The AOL Reader Team

                            • 24h/12h time format

                              It would be nice to have the choice to switch between 24h and 12h time formats.

                                  • Fix incorrect unread count

                                    My unread counts are acting weird. I have articles from months ago showing as if they have never been read even after I scroll past them. I even "Marked all as read" a few times today and they still show up as unread sporadically

                                    • The read/unread icon is gone, bring it back

                                      Yesterday there was a icon next to the fav-star indicating if the feed was read or not. ¿Why has it gone?

                                      • pane view is buggy

                                        It indents every article until there's no more space for it and then it goes again.
                                        Not really usable like this.

                                        • allow us to see the feed URL

                                          Right now, once imported, all we can see from a feed is the Favicon and title. It'd be tremendously helpful for me to get the actual URL back because for a few of my feeds I need to change the parameters every so often.
