    • Can't enter any new feeds or sites. Additions appear blank.

      I haven't been able to add anything new to AOL Reader for a while now. Everything appears as a blank entry with no information. Currently using the far more clunky Digg Reader simply because I can update it.

      • Feed not updating.

        The feed for the Kane show stopped working after 6/17. http://www.hot995.com/podcast/kane.xml

        The same feed works (updated past 6/17 and current) for other websites eg: the old reader.

        • Remove popup when sharing

          Please remove the (or add the option to turn off) the pop up window when sharing things to Pocket. It's really a burden closing pop ups when adding more than one item.

          • 3 collum mode

            I recommend 3 collum mode
            1st collum
            All RSS feed list
            2nd collum
            Selected RSS feeds list
            3rd collum
            Each feed reading

            And use back button can back like 3→2→1 collum for faster reading

            • Have an option to increase size of images. Either that, or don't shrink the original image size. Many of the comic have become unreadable.

              Have an option to increase size of images. Either that, or don't shrink the original image size. Many of the comic have become unreadable.

              There is still a large amont of white space on my desktop, which you could use to display these images, instead I have to click through to go to the original site, in which case why bother with the reader, and just have them as bookmarks in my browser?

                  • 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.

                    • mute subscriptions

                      There should be an option to mute subscription or a tag. I've several subscriptions to various technologies. At any given point of time I'm interested in getting updates from few technologies not all. Currently the only option is unscbscribe. I don't want to loose those feed urls I just don't want them to be fetching for now. May later I may un mute them if I want to follow them.

                        • 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…

                                  • Feed Is Not Showing Content: Arts & Letters Daily

                                    The feed for the Arts & Letters Daily website is not showing any content in Reader. The feed can be found at the following location: http://www.aldaily.com/feed/ When I view the feed in Firefox, I can see content updated daily, but nothing shows in Reader when selecting to view unread or read content.

                                      • I'm on a laptop and do not have a lot of vertical view.

                                        Dim the headline at the end of the article and not the beginning. It's bothersome to me the way it dims now.

                                        • Search for new feeds, subscribe to one, then search same topic again?

                                          Really? No "back" to other feeds under same search? Perhaps there's a way, but - as with this feedback - one doesn't find how it works except by 'trial and error.' I.E. Waste my time... Trying other newsreaders to find most promising from start-up. (I don't believe anyone uses their own sites to see the User Experience of their process! IT Theory makes design, not UX!)
