    Wrap text

    Thank you for the feedback. This is a closed beta release, but somehow Google Play distributed it to a wider group. The article view is not yet 100% finished. Next week we will publish the official beta and we hope to publish the official release soon after that.

    Floating "Mark all Read" button :-(

    Thank you for this feedback. We will have it in mind and we will re-evaluate the button position. This is a closed beta release, but somehow Google Play distributed it to a wider group. Next week we will publish the official beta and we hope to publish the official release soon after that.

    version 6 problem with tags as start screen

    Thank you for the feedback. We will check it and fix it. This is a closed beta release, but somehow Google Play distributed it to a wider group. Next week we will publish the official beta and we hope to publish the official release soon after that.

    Instapaper

    Unfortunately no. We have completely removed the code and connectors responsible for Instapaper and updated the mobile apps (due to release very soon).

    6.1 Layout Stinks

    We are working on a release that will add an option to disable this split view in landscape mode. We are sorry to hear that some people don't like this. It's based on the overwhelming majority of the feedback for version 6.0. In version 5 our iPad app was also using a split view, which was kind of clunky so we removed it in 6.0 (based on previous positive experience from the Android version). But we were greeted with tons of negative reviews from people that wanted back the split view. So we added it back in 6.1, but more polished than in 5.x. We also didn't change anything in portrait mode, so if you don't want to take advantage of the sidebar, you just turn your iPad in portrait mode and it's gone. I guess it was silly for us to assume this. So we're adding back the option for for iPhone layout on the landscape mode and hopefully everyone will be happy at the end.

    Ew.com

    Yes, that's exactly the issue. Unfortunately a lot of sites are now broken due this. We are trying to add work arounds for the bigger ones, but they are not guaranteed to last, so the publishers really need to address this. We have added a work-around for this site too, so it should start updating now.

    Tumblr Feeds Unavailable

    The NSFW feeds are fixed too.

    Tumblr Feeds Unavailable

    Another solution was just implemented. Feeds should start updating again. Sorry about that, hopefully they will finally remove this nonsense page for /rss links. I should also mention that our work around only work for *.tumblr.com URLs. Any blog hosted with a custom domain will still be unavailable until Tumblr officially fix this.

    Tumblr Feeds Unavailable

    It looks like Tumblr now returns 403 Forbidden error to our crawlers when they try to obtain the consent cookie. We are investigating why, but it looks like a "security" measure on their end. Sorry about that, we'll try to find another way to deal with this again.

    Tumblr Feeds Unavailable

    Since obviously Tumblr won't do anything anytime soon, we have put more effort into simulating the consent cookies. I think we've succeeded now and all Tumblr feeds should start working properly if not already. It took us some time, because we didn't want to sacrifice performance and stability of the backend. We saw the TT-RSS implementation, but TT-RSS instances usually process several hundred and rarely more than thousands of feeds. We need to add a fix in a code that is executed millions of times per hour, so the solution was quite different here. In the process we also tried to pass the traffic to Tumblr through an AWS proxy and it worked for a short time, but our AWS IP addresses were quickly blocked by Tumblr. I don't know why they have so strict rate limits to those addresses. Our backend IPs doesn't seem to be limited so hard. Anyway everything should be back to normal now. Sorry it took so long, but we really thought that Tumblr will fix this in a timely manner, since it doesn't seem to require a great effort on their end.

    Tumblr Feeds Unavailable

    Yes, it's obviously related to GDPR since it's only being shown to EU IPs. We have now rerouted all Tumblr traffic through a US VPN, but we are already seeing a lot of "Rate limit exceeded" errors from their end since we only have one US IP address... Some of the feeds should start updating now and we will try to add more US ips, but the best solution of course will be for Tumblr to notice and fix this.

    Unfortunately Tumblr started to show some new privacy policy consent page to our crawlers. See this tweet: We can't bypass it in any way. We have tried to simulate the consent cookie, but it's hashed and we don't know the logic behind it. It's also apparent that they only show this page to EU based IPs and that's why the feeds still work in some other readers. TT-RSS users who are hosing their instances in EU are also complaining: https://discourse.tt-rss.org/t/change-on-tumblr-rss-feeds-not-working/1158/15 As of now we don't have backend servers outside of EU, so we hope that Tumblr will notice us and will fix this.
  14. I understand, you want to have the full content saved for offline use. This is what we are seeing too (why people want to use the Saved web pages as internal bookmarks). We are planning to do something like our Offline folders with the stars too, which should be a better solution. Offline folder already can cache images and full content. The Stars are even now synchronized for offline use in our apps, but without the full content and images. This is the icon I'm referring to:
  15. Thank you for the detailed feedback. The feature to save links "a la Pocket" was always a side feature of Inoreader and not a core one. You know that Inoreader is primarily an RSS aggregator so the normal way to save something for later is to use stars or tags. Saved web pages is for those cases where you don't have an RSS feed and you just want to save a random resource from the web. We have the tough task to balance so many features and to have some way of leading users into using the correct feature set for their use case. E.g. we have received requests to add a "save as web page" button to each article. We don't want to do that, because we have stars for this. For your Desktop feedback - you know we have an extension and a bookmarklet right? They're mentioned in the blog post you linked. The extension could be a little too much for what you want, but the bookmarklet is very straight forward. It just saves the current page. There's a big plus icon in the action bar (top right) for saving via URL. It's available both on the iPad and iPhone. OK just re-read that. So you really want to do what we don't want you to do... Why? As wesson mentioned we will consider all your feedback, but know that we have to be careful not to promote too many features as 1st class citizens as this will create a lot of clutter for people who will never use them and just want an RSS reader.
