        • AOL reader is refreshing endlessly

          When i go to reader.aol.com, it is refreshing every 1 or 2 seconds. i can't log in or do anything, it just refreshes forever. Probably cookie related - when i use incognito mode, it doesn't do this.
          I'm using Chrome 41.0.2272.118 (64-bit) on OS X 10.10.3.

          • Is AOL using latency / slow loading to drive off users prior closing AOL Reader, or is there an active effort to fix this problem?

                  • Item Loading Issues

                    It seems that within the last 24 hours, items/articles are loading much slower. Scrolling is taking much longer because I consistently need to wait for items to load. Please advise. Thanks.

                            When I try to add subscriptions it will tell me there is an error loading the feed. If I try again it will bring up the details box for the subscription with the name 'fake' and will 'add' the subscription but it won't work. This is an issue for a range of sites and blog providers (wordpress,com and blogspot.co.uk and blogs with wordpress backends and so on). A few times this new feed has worked but mostly it refuses to add the feed.

                            • problems with "tag"s !

                              There are two problems with "tag"s in my AOL! :
                              1- For every post I can only select my tag's name for one time. After that when you click on tag's sign(top right of menu) nothing happen and it doesn't open.

                              2- Tags don't behave like feeds, because when you want to read your tags there is nothing. You should change "unread only" to" all items" in "view options" first otherwise you can't see anything. Why? I don't know!!!

                                • mail link doesn't work

                                  Mail link option isn't working since 14th Aug 2014. Since the update to open in a new tab fix went it.
                                  Earlier it was not opening in new tab and yesterday's fix was meant for that.

                                  Before opening mail in same tab, it was working fine as in opening in new tab. Please use the fix which was present during this time.

                                  • iOS App "Hide empty feeds" does not save

                                    I'm using the Reader App on iPhone and iPad, latest iOS release.
                                    I've activated "Hide empty categories/feeds" but this does does only work until the application is restared.
                                    After the next restart the option is still set, but alle categories/feeds including the empty ones are shown. Going to settings shows that the option is activated. Switching the option off and on again hides the empty ones instantly.
                                    Applies to iphone and ipad version.

                                    • Bring back bold font for article titles

                                      It is harder to read the titles now without it.

                                      • "Mark as unread" does not stick

                                        I posted this months ago, upon first release. It was fixed, but it is happening again.
                                        If I mark something as unread, in order to read it later, as soon as I scroll away from it, the post gets marked as read, so it is lost.

                                        • Images in posts lose their title text

                                          One example of a feed with title text is https://what-if.xkcd.com/feed.atom . When viewing the feed in my browser directly the title text appears, but if the feed is loaded into AOL Reader the title text does not show up.
