  1. You’re making a “snapchat” level mistake

    Prior to yesterday’s update, a page of unread items were marked as read once that page was dismissed. That behavior is now gone, even in the classic version. I scan 100’s of articles a day whenever a have a moment or two. My reader MUST support appropriate incremental marking of articles as read in order to support my use case. As of this update it does not - and neither does the Feedly Classic app.

    You are about to lose a large portion of your audience if you don’t bring back this behavior immediately - as in days.

    Feedly got…

    Hello,would you try enabling mark as read on scroll and long pressing on articles to select form Mark as Read above/below? That would put you close to the previous behavior. We don’t have pages concept in the new app so we don’t know how to mark to mark a current page as read anymore.
    If that is a big change for you, there is Feedly Classic app still available.

  2. Wrong link URL to full article

    In one feed (https://www.kvv.de/ticker_rss.xml) I'm directed to the wrong entry when clicking on the "visit website" button in feedly.

    Instead of being directed to the URL which accompanies the article in the rss feed (e.g. https://www.kvv.de/fahrt-planen/verkehrsmeldungen.html?tx_ixkvvticker_ticker%5BdetailID%5D=Nettro_CMS_101213&tx_ixkvvticker_ticker%5Baction%5D=detail&tx_ixkvvticker_ticker%5Bcontroller%5D=Ticker)
    feedly leads me to https://www.kvv.de/fahrt-planen/verkehrsmeldungen.html?tx_ixkvvticker_ticker%5BdetailID%5D=110003570_KVV_ICSKVV&tx_ixkvvticker_ticker%5Baction%5D=detail&tx_ixkvvticker_ticker%5Bcontroller%5D=Ticker
    (different details id).

    The XML document looks fine and works with IE feed without problems. Feedly seems to mix the URLs somehow.
    Can you fix it?

  3. make RSS feeds for Instagram, YouTube (and not just Twitter) possible.

    I am currently using fetchrss.com for it. With that I can integrate YouTube, Instagram and Twitter feeds. But it costs me 10 Dollars/month :-(( I would totally go Pro with you guys and skip them if you would create a feature like this!

  5. Allow adding custom RSS feeds

    I want to read one blog in my feedly. I can copy the rss feed url of the blog and paste in feedly and feedly identifies the blog. But

    But the problem is Feedly recognizes the website as source and shows all news. While the feed URL I selected from that website was for specific category of news.

    Now I dont want all news from that website. I just want specific category of news. Which I am getting as RSS feed from the website but feedly won't let me add that RSS . Because it thinks it already has that…

  6. Show statistics of feeds

    Like erstwhile Google Reader, show statistics on feed regarding: last updated, last read, volume of post/day, volume of read/day, etc. Helps user curate content, drop old/non-updating feeds, etc.

  7. always show feed list

    Option to always display the feed list on the left side of the screen when in Title view, as in Google Reader, so we don't have to click on or hover over the 3 bars in the top right corner to temporarily see the list constantly.

  8. Support HTML span tag, to display styled text (source code, highlighting etc.) from original post

    I use Google reader to read programming posts. These posts contain lots of source code, that is typically syntax-highlighted using colors etc. via HTML span tags within <pre> blocks. These appear correctly on Google Reader but not on Feedly. In Feedly, the entire <span> tag is displayed as-is, rather than rendered.

    For example: jObject.<span style="">addToolbar</span><span style="color: #080;">(</span><span style="color: #080;">)</span>

    Suspected reason: feedly automatically converts <span> into "&lt ;span&gt ;" rather than keeping the original angled brackets.

  9. Allow authenticated feeds from services like Factiva

    My single reason for not converting to Feedly in this moment of dire need is that about half the feeds I follow for work are from our paid Factiva service. Factiva allows me to create a feed for their alerts, and Google Reader just displays the meta-description for each result (just like they do for Google News Alerts); once I click on a story, sure, I have to log in. That's fine. However, when I converted to Feedly, those feeds aren't being pulled in. Instead, I get this error message:
    "Feedly was not able to load feed: Access to this…

  10. Feedly does not appear to refresh a post if the author updates it after posting. (Google reader does this).

    Feedly does not appear to refresh a post if the author updates it after posting. (Google reader does this).
    Authors always see typos and clarifications after posting - so this feature is important. The preview has the updated text but the normal click does not. This may resolve itself eventually.

  11. Allow adding RSS feeds directly by URL

    You should add an option to add RSS feeds by URL, and not just by browsing your feed selection. What if I want to subscribe to my owns feeds?

  12. auto refresh

    I just would love to have an auto update of unread items, even while I am reading.
    I don't want to have to press the refresh icon to see that there are new unread.
    Infact, I love my extension (Chrome) where I see the number of unread items once there are some, and I go straight to visit the site to read them.
    Thanks. See ya in a few weeks

  13. Remove, filter or delete duplicated posts

    Analize content to detect duplicated posts. Have an option to mark them, filter them or delete them.

    I have some feeds that have duplicates, content is the same, only time or url changes (http://www.example.com or http://example.com).

  14. fix updating of YouTube feed

    I subscribed to my YouTube subscriptions using this URL:
    https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/gigatom12/newsubscriptionvideos

    When I add it to feedly, it works fine and fetches the videos. However, when I try to manually update it, it doesn't show any new videos. Also if I come back a few hours later it doesn't show me new videos either even though I know that there are a bunch of new ones.

    I think the issue is that after adding it, it tries to fetch the feed from https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center which is defined in the feed's <link rel='alternate'> tag. Why? Because I noticed that the link on the…

  15. language filter

    google reader filtered feeds of languages i do not understand. i don't know how they did it, but they have filtered out languages i can't speak. for example: i follow the updates of the flickr blog, there are posts written in every language. i got only the german one (if availaible) otherwise i got the english one. now i can see every post written in japanese or spanish.

  16. Please implement "Undo" functionality for "mark as read", "unsave", "delete" ...

    "Undo" ("fix" previously made actions) for as many actions as it can be done.

  17. load all old articles

    Sometimes I use RSS readers for not only the newest updates, but also those old but still important information (well this is probably the only reason that I still use RSS - to get information that is not popular on social media). Currently feedly only loads some part of old articles and shows " End of stream". It would be better if it can keep loading old articles (like the last version and Google Reader used to do).

  19. Display video length in the thumbnail

    Videos, like YouTube, could use the length of the video in the thumbnail so that the article doesn't need to be opened/read to find that out

  20. Provide a way to read alt texts when available

    Many feeds (xkcd.com's, for example) consist of a comic image with an alt text message. Google Reader presents the image and then a "Show alt text/Hide alt text" toggle below. It would be good to have similar functionality in Feedly.
