Can no longer see read items easily
Previously if one clicked directly on a feed name and there were no unread items, the list of read items would be displayed. This has been changed recently and now to see read items, you need to change an option in the feed settings.
This makes it much more difficult to find an article you read yesterday or if you clicked "Mark as Read" by mistake and want to go back.
Hello, if you want to see all your read articles, please uncheck “Unread only” in your feeds.
They seem to have taken this functionality away again (June 11, 2018). Anyone have any insight into how to bring it back?
Please bring back the old option we have enjoyed for years.
@petr -- please read what we are requesting in detail this time & respond to the issue.
For those who voted for this before they closed it, I opened a new suggestion here:
"Hello, if you want to see all your read articles, please uncheck “Unread only” in your feeds."
This is not a solution to the issue at hand. With the "Unread only" off now, when I go to a feed, the unread are intermingled in the read items often 2-3 scrolls down.
What we want is:
1 - if there are unread...it ONLY shows the unread
2 - if there are no unread...it shows all.
I would like to add my voice to the request to bring it back. It was a great feature.
"please uncheck “Unread only” in your feeds." -- that doesn't solve the problem! you used to be able to click on a particular feed and see the previously-read posts. your suggestion means that if you want to find a certain previously-read post you have to scroll through ALL YOUR FEEDS to find it!
This feature was amazing. Please bring it back. Maybe even as an option.
I wanted to agree with this comment. Having the 'all caught up' page instead of read items list seems like a step back in terms of usability. Why make it more difficult to see the read items?
I understand the new way, but my comment is that it is not as user-friendly as the old way.
