Make it possible to mark an old post as unread
Right now, you only see the mark unread button when you're reading an unread post (so it's really a keep unread button). On Google Reader, you can go to any post in any state and toggle the "mark as read" checkbox.
Uwyeah... really helpfull, thanks http://kemejadistrobandungmurah.blogspot.com/2014/02/jual-kemeja-distro-bandung-murah-meriah.html
I know you can mark items as unread but I agree - can we make it so that you don't have to do it each time or at least make it more obvious which posts are read or unread. When I click M to mark as unread, its hard to tell its worked as the title of the post just goes from a dark grey to black - blink at the same time you press M and you can't tell its been kept as unread. Google Reader had a little check box which made it obvious to toggle back and forth and also so you could see it was an article you'd kept as unread if you came across it later.
Agree with what some other people say: save for later is handy but as it is uncategorised (and no number next to it to say there are items there), easy to forget you have items up there.

Btw, there is a "keep unread" ("M" key) option, but it's different than in Google Reader:
- you have to do it every single time you navigate to the article
- clicking it or pressing M doesn't change anything visually (!!!) until you navigate to a different article - this is terribly confusing

Very helpful! I've been struggling for a while trying to figure out why my old posts would not stay unread.
Bruno Costa commented
I need this! The option we have is not working.

Yes, that would be great!

this feature is really necessary since you can't display only saved and unread posts for a special feed
Robert Brittain commented
The "Keep as unread" option disappears in certain circumstances making it impossible to go back and mark an article as unread if you have mistakenly marked it as read.
Ben Mattison commented
Related request: the option to set a particular feed as "open directly in website" is great -- but once the feed is set that way, as far as I can tell, there is no way to mark a post as unread once you've clicked on it. One solution would be to add a read/unread toggle to the mouse-over menu next to the title. That would solve the problem above, too.
