  1. Keyboard shortcuts not fully working

    When using keyboard shortcuts like j/k to scroll through articles, the page does not capture my keystrokes and still passes the key onto the browser.

    I have search when typing enabled with firefox, and therefore when pressing j/k to scroll if the page passes on my keystroke to firefox it will try to search not allowing me to scroll.

    This works fine with google reader.

        Hi,

        We believe this was a problem when the reader is set to spanish. We just pushed a fix for this. Can you try again with different feeds. If it still does not work, please contact support so they can better address the issue.

        Thanks,
        The AOL Reader Team

      • Could "Previous subscription" shortcut navigate from first item to last?

        If you press the "next subscription" shortcut when the last subscription in the subscription pane is highlighted, the app highlights the first item in the subscription pane. However, the converse is not true -- you cannot navigate from the last subscription to the first subscription by using the "previous subscription" shortcut while the first subscription is currently highlighted.

        This is a (very minor) frustration for me when I want to navigate to a subscription near the bottom of the list and inadvertently "go too far" only to wind up back at the top of the subscription list.

        • I am using IE 9.0.8112.16421 and with Aol Reader, the navigation buttons are not visible. There are gray boxes where the buttons should be

          I am using IE 9.0.8112.16421 and with Aol Reader, the navigation buttons are not visible. There are gray boxes where the buttons should be. If I hover over a box, the pop-up shows me what it is.

          • Fix text from flowing over posts with images floated to the right

            I've noticed that in some feeds that have images in the article, text flows over the image instead of flowing around it. See the picture to see an example of this happening

            • Mark as read marks all items, even those that have not been refreshed to be displayed

              When reading a feed, I would like to mark it read at the end of the unread articles that are displayed. If more articles have arrived, they should not be marked read if I haven't refreshed the feed to display them yet. It would be nice if Mark as Read only affected the articles visible in the feed list

                • Some Feed Items are not shown by AOL Reader

                  This especially happens if there is a hyphen-seperated date in the feed title.

                  For example the Article "Heutiger Bergfreunde Preisgrounder vom 11-07-2013" posted July 11th, 2013 02:15 on http://www.outdoordeals.de/feed/ does not appear in the Reader.

                  • The 'enter' shortcut does not work

                    Pressing 'enter' does not perform the expected action: "Expand/collapse item". 'o' does work however.

                        • Some of the subscriptions can't load and show Home view instead

                          When I clicked on the subscription title at the left column, the url in the address bar is "http://reader.aol.com/#home", which was expected to be "http://reader.aol.com/#subscription/(subscription url)",and as a result, entries were not loaded in the content area but show the home view instead,I tried to refreshed the page several times and the problem still exists, hope to fix soon, thank you!

                          • When viewing a folder, all items appear unread

                            Like most Readers, items in individual feeds appear different when read or unread. AOL Reader dims read items.

                            However, when viewing the list of items in a folder of feeds, none of the items are dimmed so that it's not possible to tell which are read and which are unread.

                            Not a huge deal, but a little annoying.

                            (overall, the product looks great so far)
