General Discussion

You can improve...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Shortcut key S should also work on collapsed article

    An article can be starred/unstarred by pressing 's' if the article is expanded.

    This should also work if the article is collapsed, when only the title is visible.

    Worked in Google Reader that way

    • 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.

        The content of this feed: http://www.onthefastrack.com/?feed=rss2 doesn't show up properly. It only shows the small thumbnail instead of the large photo.

          • 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.

            • '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.

              • Label the feeds, the tiny icons are unrecognizable.

                In the feeds list on the left I need a feed name, not an icon. I didn't see a way to change that.

                • change shortcut mark-as-read from M to A

                  At least for right-handers, the Shift-A combination (as in Google Reader) is much easier to use than Shift-M. Left hand: A, right hand: mouse. :-)

                          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!

                                  1. Import feeds from Google Reader.
                                  2. Add RSS feeds from a URL
                                  3. Add feeds using the search functionality.

                                  So, basically, I can't read feeds at all. FAIL.

                                    • in Safari I can't share the posts with any of the given options

                                      Every time I want to share something, through any available option, the page freezes.
