  1. Redirect Facebook to inoreader using hosts

    Thanks. Funny, I am specifically not using a https protocol in my access. Yet Chrome calls it as such. Is there a setting to force https, I wonder? I'm not running such an extension. In Safari, the URL goes to Inoreader ok, but won't move past the login. I don't want to redirect to localhost. I specifically want to change my habit - that "f" key has become too prevalent in my life. I guess I should try finding a Chrome redirect extension or something instead.
  2. This is non-specific, but I think you'll like it anyway... I'm trying to redirect my Facebook habit to Inoreader. I'm trying to modify my Mac's hosts file. I have added the line "92.247.181.40 facebook.com www.facebook.com fb.com" I have flushed my machine's DNS cache. But, when I think load any of those URLs, Chrome intervenes with the message in the attachment. Any guidance or challenges you see in doing this?
  3. iPad feature requests

    I have reinstalled the iPad app - I really want to get back on top of my conscious feed reading, away from inconsequential social stuff. I'm reminded of some of the features I wished it had... Full-width items list: Honestly, the items list is too narrow. It is because you include both the items list and the content window on the same viewport. It makes it too hard to scan through items at speed. My usual behaviour is to visually scan through items only by headline/image - that's how I determine whether to click to read or not. The current configuration makes it too hard to read through the list. It doesn't help that the items column is so narrow that headlines wrap to the next line. This means you show fewer items on a single screen than is possible. Most importantly, this is inconsistent with the web version of the product, which allows for a wide items-list view in the biggest, main window (on the right-hand side) rather than the narrowest one (on the left). And it can show this both beside a folder view (my preference) or, even wider, on its own. It's all about context - when I am browsing through the items list, that is all I care about, so let me go large with it; when I want to read an article, I'll click it, so vanish the list let me go to the article in isolation, and let me call down the full text. Favicons for item list: Items in list view show the feed name in text. But this still doesn't make it especially easy to scan the list and ascertain what I want to read. What I want is to see the feed icon in the list view. This would make it much more scannable because you are reducing my reliance on text only. I do use this visual indicator to judge which articles, out of many hundreds, are worth my time. Plus, it's just nice. I believe Mr Reader had this, and other RSS readers do. More to the point, the web version of Inoreader has it. Favicons for item article view: While I am at it, why not put the icon on the feed item, too? All these visual indicators aid speed and comprehension and experience, and they are so lightweight. Folder click should show items, not feeds: Default behaviour (and not changeable?) when clicking a folder is to show the list of feeds within. But that is never my intended action. I have subscribed to these items and taken the time to curate them in to folders - I want to see the items all in one view. But I always need to click "View folder", an additional step, to get to the items. It really slows things up. So just help me go straight from my folder to the items underneath, regardless of the feed. Top takeaways for me - Mr Reader is sorely missed, and I wish for closer alignment between Inoreader on iOS and web. I'm sure you have good reasons behind feature choices, just as when I requested nested folders. And please correct me if I am overlooking available features Happy to file these requests individually if you prefer. Thanks.
  4. Multiple Folder Levels

    Here's an after the fact +1 for this again. Here's why... I know you guys have said multiple times you wouldn't do this. Just thought I'd state it again
  5. Best way to bookmark organised articles?

    Oh that sounds perfect. Don't know how I didn't see that. Didn't seem to be an option in the Mr Reeder app, but this is great, thanks. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I have a meticulous system of dozens of folders, containing hundreds of feeds. I read material that I want to effectively "bookmark" for later research, maintaining something like this folder structure. But, when I Star an article from any, they all just go in to Stars. What are some techniques I could use to do this? ie. Can I create anything like a "smart" folder, perhaps with the same name as the original, which would house Starred articles from a particular folder only? ie. Should I just think about creating dozens of tags, and tagging articles for later return? Rules doesn't quite seem to fit the bill, as that is more about pattern matching. What I'm looking for is a way to say, if an article from folder X is starred, then place it in some unique container equivalent to folder X. Or, otherwise, a folder view that only shows starred articles within this folder, not the rest. Thanks very much.
  7. Subscribing to feedless sites

    I've seen a few of these over the years, but I didn't know about Distill. Thanks.
  8. Subscribing to feedless sites

    Sorry if this has been dealt with, but does Inoreader yet have functionality to subscribe to sites that don't have any feeds?
  9. Right now, the Folder Grouping appears under the global Reading Options menu, which appears to fix it for all folders. How about enabling this setting, instead, on a per-folder basis? I want to see the contents of some folders ordered by Feed, but others ordered by Date. As is, I have to keep switching between these. Thanks.
  10. Coloured folder titles

    How about picking a font colour for folder titles?
  11. Full export to full import (reset?)

    If I do full export (subs, stars, likes & broadcasted), can this be reimported? It's not OPML. It's a zip. Can it work like a roll-back? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Multiple Folder Levels

    Yes, thanks. I recall a Greasemonkey extension for Google Reader that did this by interpreting a key character in the folder name as a nesting branch point. But I haven't seen similar for Inoreader.
  13. Multiple Folder Levels

    What's the current position on nested folders?
  14. About the ads

    Unclear. I haven't yet seen an ad, presumably because I'm paying (?). But I've been happy to pay this amount over the last few months to support the app and to avoid ads. Many feeds already carry their own ads. I would be especially interested in being able to switch on a full-feed view (mobilizes, coffee cup, Readbility) by default at my end on a per-feed or per-folder basis, avoiding having to click it every time; so that sounds like part of a paid bundle to me. Please could you clarify the feature "RSS Feeds for all subscriptions", listed under Plus on the Upgrade table? Thanks.
  15. About the ads

    I'm paying you $2.99 a month. Do I get the ads as well? Do free users now get what I am paying for? Why should I continue paying? Are you advising that I pay $14.99 per year instead? Many thanks and good luck.
