  1. 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.

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?)

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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=#)?

  9. 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.

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
