No limits on unread/old items
PLEASE do not impose a 30-day limit on Normandy like Google Reader did. At the very least, allow users to view items older than 30 days on Normandy. People don't want to lose information!
We’d like to share with you how Search works and why the limitation is set on 30 days.
Basically the reason why we have to limit to 30 days for categories is because searching across a large number of feeds takes a long time to return results right now. This also explains why we can remove this limit when you search directly in a feed rather than a category, as that will return search results a lot faster.
You can still see all the older articles as unread in all your Collections/Categories. If you’ll click on the Gear icon on the top right and uncheck “Unread only” you’ll see all the articles, just marked as read.
Improving our search feature is one of our top priorities for feedly Pro, so we’re trying to up this limit soon. Unfortunately we don’t have an ETA to give you on that.
I just noticed this and I have trusted Feedly to keep a record of my unread items. I am angry that articles I have been saving to read have been lost because of this 30 day rule. There should be a clear warning because I have now lost about a 100 articles I have been wishing to read.

I really don't understand why Feedly team continues to ignores and neglects this issue as we can see how many users are aware of the lack of this feature and ask for it, I don't think it's so difficult to implement but for some strange reason they flatly refuse to do it. They even refuse to discuss this topic, I just don't get it...

Hello? Is anyone home? 14 people working at Feedly now and no one can comment on this? I'm unfortunately making plans to move to Feedbin because of this
Why not just keep unread items older then 30 days until they ammount to some number?
I understand why feedly wont save old unread posts for a major site with hundreds of posts per day, but I have a lot of feeds which only get a new post every other day, where it wouldn't be a problem to keep all unread posts of it for a year since that would be less then 100 posts.
Agree what's the point if can't look back at older news
This needs to happen ASAP
I agree. Looking for another reader which allows unlimited feed history.
Just make another plan and charge $10 a month if you have to. Just do it!
i lost a lot of good feed
FYI to developers: leaving this service because of this issue.
I'm a pro user and would like to have this limit removed as soon as possible!
I will migrate to another service if this is not fixed. Please, a month is joke. If you must have a limit at least make it longer.

This needs to happen. I can't keep up with my feeds and have lost months of history as a result :(.

I switched over to Feedly to replace YouTube's horrible subscription delivery system. It works impeccably, besides this issue that does not allow me to mark old entries as unread. I'm several months behind on a few of the YouTube channels I watch, so this app does not help me catch up, nor can it be something I can depend on for keeping the watch status of all my videos over a long period of time. Until this is fixed, I will be searching for another app.
Hey guys, this suggestion is almost up to the top of the second page! If we can push it to the front page then we are more likely to get a response. So if anyone has more votes that you can add to this, let's switch over as many as we can to help push us the rest of the way up!

oh wow. I didn't realise this until I started realising that my unread numbers were being kept a little low. I have been leaving articles that I want to read as unread to come back to later.
This is a real issue as I have been losing them (marked as read and now lost in the background)
Trav Fryer commented
Yeah this is crazy. I've been letting feeds accumulate for months and now I realize they're not saved!? I need to find an RSS reader ASAP that will save items for longer than a month...
This is the only missing feature that keeps me looking for alternatives.
There have been tons of updates and improvements since Google Reader died within Feedly. I think removing this limitation is one of my last requests.
Agree. Will have to choose another reader if this is not addressed.
