Prune/delete/mark_read content after certain time
Lets say you go away for a while. Maybe you go on vacation, loose interest in news, or just in general get busy in life. You come back after a week or 5 and see you have thousands of articles to sort. It's a shock to the system and creates undue anxiety.
A nice feature would be to simply allow articles to
- become marked as read
- be move someplace else or flagged
- deleted altogether as if they never existed
I believe this would be a very nice feature and one that I would enjoy.3 votes
There is already such functionality here.
“Mark all as read” button has drop down menu (click on the triangle on the right side of the button). You can mark items older than a day/week/two weeks/month/year as read.

Done. It’s now possible to subscribe to Instagram accounts, tags and locations.
Smaller steps for resizing fonts
BazQux has a nices shortcut for resizing the article font (- and =). Only problem is that the steps are too large for my taste. The standard font size is too small, but when I increase it with = then its a bit tool large.1 vote
Done. Steps was made smaller in new release
Support for http auth feeds
I have a couple subscription rss feeds (podcasts) that use http auth to get the paid version.
Bazqux doesn't appear to support http://user:password@feedurl (or is there a particular way I have to enter the URL?)3 votes
Supported since last year. Sorry for not updating.
at Item ids section there is a list of supported options. They are the same as in Google Reader API.
Allow an option to have public feed only display new items
I would like a url option that will allow public feed to only display new items. No reason to grab hundreds of items on the feed when there may be only like 5 unread items.1 vote
option to feed URL.
Internally public feeds are just shortcuts for API calls and they handle API options (like n=100 for example)
Allow login with a username and password
I really don't want my BazQux account dependent on other sites. Remembering which service I used is a bit fraught.3 votes
Public feed limit greater then 20
It would be nice to allow public feeds to exceed 20 items.
Maybe an option can be added to the URL to select a limit (Like doing &limit=#)?1 vote
Add ?n=100 to public feed URL. Up to 1000 elements can be returned.
Subscribe to youtube channels (not users)
Currently only subscription to youtube users (URLs like "http://www.youtube.com/user/...") seems to work. Youtube also has channels with URLs like http://www.youtube.com/channel/..., usually many users may add videos to such channels, and there seems to be no way to find RSS for such channels.5 votes
I’ve added ability to subscribe to youtube playlists. Subscribing to youtube channel now subscribes to its “uploads” playlist.
For correct subscribing to channel it’s necessary to get videos from all channel’s playlists, which can make too many requests.
Link or change account type
I would like to be able to change or link different logins. Currently you are out of luck, if your login account that your Bazqux profile is linked to, is closed. (Which soon happens to me, as my myopenid.com is already officially closed)
If one could link several profiles (Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, OpenID) as a log in, it would be very nice.13 votes
Done. Go to Settings => Account and link/unlink as many logins as you like (and classic email+password login is now supported as well)
Add a "must read" option for feeds
It'd be nice to have a way to mark a subset of my feeds as "must read" and then be able to browse a stream of only my "must read" feeds. As it stands, I can't both have my feeds categorized into topic folders and also be able to read only a subset of them - I have to either read everything (through Latest), or read a single feed/folder at a time.
An alternate option would be to simply allow me to toggle whether a feed shows up in Latest or not.3 votes
I think it’s more or less adequately solved with putting feed into “Must read” folder (and feeds could be in multiple folders, although yes, it’s non-obvious).
Add a bind that will open the URL for the article through Google Translate.1 vote
It’s already here. Press Shift+V or Shift+B to open translated article. It also available in share menu (look at the last screenshot in http://blog.bazqux.com/2013/10/drag-and-drop-subscriptions-reordering.html )
Add support for 2 factor Auth
I am a security focused guy. I would love support for google authenticator :-)1 vote
As I understand 2-factor Auth works fine with Google, Facebook and Twitter logins.
Touch Friendly Web UI
I'm a Windows 8.1 user with a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro which has very high resolution (retina like). The reading experience is quite good, but the top menu is bit small to hit accurately. I suggest you flatten the menu to a single line and make the targets 50% larger. To fit this all in, shorten the text on the "+Add Subscription" and "Mark all as Read" and the filter box.8 votes
BazQux Reader now has a nice mobile web interface
Show proper error for invalid passwords.
I'm not sure if the password requirements (for mobile login) are very simple, but they're not documented, and when you try to set one you just get 'invalid password'.
That's either a UX bug or a documentation. But since there's not really any good reason not to allow complex passwords, I'm going to guess it's a UI bug.1 vote
It’s already stated on the right side of password field (“must be non-empty”).
And I’ve just duplicated it in the error text too. Thank you for the idea!
Subscribe to feeds by tags
For example, I want to read posts from http://allboxing.ru/atom.xml tagged as "Professional Boxing" only (most of posts are not interesting for me). It would be very useful. Thank you!1 vote
I’ve implemented filtering
Select allboxing feed, search for tag:“Professional boxing” and press New filter => Show found items only.
It will hide all other items in this feed.
Mark all as read feature in a filter view
Hi, when I filter all posts in all feeds by some search term ('subject:microsoft' for example) it's impossible to mark all filtered results as read either with the interface button or with the keyboard sortcut.4 votes
Slashdot posts have excess whitespace
Not sure if this is unique to Slashdot, but its where I see it. When browsing a folder of feeds, Slashdot's posts have inches of white space after the article is completed.1 vote
Reader now removes excess whitespace at the end of the most of the posts.
Fix please - list of acticles is emptied after click on "Mark all as read"
The case: mode "Show all" is ON. We see the read articles in grey font and new ones in black font. Once we click on "Mark all as read" the list of articles gets totally cleared and emptied. To see them all again (in grey) the page should be reloaded.
That really makes me totally crazy. Any way to help?4 votes
