  1. Automatic dark/light mode switching

    I'm using macOS, which can automatically switch to dark mode at certain times (by set time frames).

    Many native apps will then also switch automatically.

    It would be nice if BazQuz would do that also. Eg. there are already quite a number of websites who do that; eg. https://www.macstories.net

    Done.

    Reader should automatically switch to dark theme now. And you could choose theme for dark and light mode separately (theme switcher will select theme for dark mode when OS is set to dark mode and vice versa).

  2. Support the project (donate)

    Could you add info about how to support BazQux (PayPal is better) as help item?

    I bought a lifetime subscription few years ago, but I would like to support development the project periodically

  3. Distinguish threaded tweets and replies

    Currently self-replies (aka tweets from threads) become invisible once you subscribe with exclude_replies parameter, so you could miss huge parts of long-lasting threads

  4. Add link in image to open in new tab by middleclicking

    Since the death of Google Reader in 2013 I am using a competitor of yours, but this month they announced changes in plans and I'm trying alternatives. Of all that I've found, BazQux is the only one with the features I need (besides the reader that I use).

    For now, there's only two little (but essential) things I'm missing:


    • In "List view", the title (bold) should link to the article URL. But just for middleclick (that I use a lot). Left click (onclick) should continue expanding the article.


    • Similar to the first one, images in "Mosaic view" and "Magazine View"…

    Done.

    I haven’t added the link since it will work bad on mobile browser but I’ve added handling of middle click (and ctrl + left click) on list view header (whole header not only subject) and mosaic/magazine view images.

    It will require you to install browser extension to open links in background tab (same extension that installed when you press ‘b’ key), since browsers do not allow to programmatically open links in background tabs.

    Thank you for the idea. Haven’t used mouse for many years and forgot about such use case.

  5. Middleclick link in mosaic view should mark item as read

    I always middleclick links to open in background tab. The clicked item should be marked as read.

    Note.: unread item and selected item (collapsed) are indistinguishable in mosaic view, except by 1px vertical line on the left. This leads me to think that the selected item is still unread, when it's just selected. I'll change this here with userStyle (as I'm also writing a userScript to add some features I want), but maybe this should be changed in the site itself.

    Fixed. Thank you for reporting this (haven’t used mouse for years so I completely forgot about middle click). Refresh the page, please.

    I’ll think about mosaic read/unread state. Can’t decide at the moment how to do it better.

  6. Upload background tab webextension to the addons.mozilla.org

    It would be nice to have official support for Firefox. I was able to copy the chrome extension and install it with no code changes. I used the "self distribution" feature to take care of this for myself, and I'd be happy to make that public. However... if I were someone else I'd prefer to get it from you.

    Thanks!

  7. Facebook Videos

    Facebook seems to have changed something because videos are not embedded anymore on Bazqux. Instead you just get a preview link. Could you look into it?

    In case you need a page to work with, here's an account with a bunch of video posts. https://www.facebook.com/TheHookOfficial/

    Done.

    Channels are fetched using scraping of t.me/s… web pages. Some channels (mostly music related) are not available on those pages.

    Perhaps, some elements aren’t scraped correctly yet.

    Please, test and report channels and posts that aren’t shown well.


    Russian users of Telegram, please, read how government and corporations control most popular channels
    https://www.proekt.media/narrative/telegram-kanaly/
    I strongly recommend to not read news in Telegram. Read professional journalists: novayagazeta.ru, meduza.io or resources which post many opinions like echo.msk.ru

  9. Support a new tablet mode

    With the proliferation of Windows Surface tablets, I was very surprised when I got my new Samsung Chromebook Plus that BazQux doesn't seem to have a tablet mode.

    Is it possible to enhance the GUI a bit to make it easier to navigate on a tablet? Bigger Next/Previous button (maybe even swiping like News+)?

    I spend at least an hour per day in BazQux, so this would really enhance my experience.

  10. possibility of multi-search for smartstream, or better regex

    http://siwego.net/grf/regex.jpg

    is there a way, to search for e.g. "cd project" and "cdproject" in one search? since wildcards works at edges of word well, "cd?project" nor "cd*project" seems not working to output both results..

  11. Add option for filters to automatically apply to subsequently added feeds

    Everytime I add a new feed I need to review all my filters and check the "missing" checkboxes...

  12. Show current status of BQ service subscription, pay at any time

    Hi Vladimir,

    It would be great to see a current status of service subscription since pricing doesn't have a 19/29 USD options only. For example: "subscription active until 31/12/2015".

    And maybe you should consider an ability to pay for a subscription at any time, not by month before subscription ends.

  13. Updated articles

    A question regarding updated/edited articles.
    How are they handled after marked as read? Do they reappear as unread again or will I never know about the changes unless I stumble over them again or check them manually?

    Articles are just updated and do not marked as unread.

    Most article updates are typos or changed views/likes/comments count, or even some tracking URL change (completely invisible). For each two new posts there is an updated one.

    To not overwhelm users with unnecessary information updates are not displayed.

    If there is some post where you expect interesting updates you could try to star it and check manually.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Offer Traditional User Account Registration

    Please offer a traditional user account registration with Email/Password.

    The options to login via FB, Google, Twitter or OpenID creates a dependency on another service - not so good after we learned how easy e.g. Google kicked us out.

    Also, I do not want to give my email/personal details to a central location or trust them with my password (hello NSA :-).

  18. Resize width of left panel

    For shrink empty fields in the left panel let a user to resize it's width. Shortcuts: "w" for more width, "shift+w" for less width. Any small step will be ideal (i.e. 10px or 5%). And mouse draging of couse need.

    Done.

    By default only wall owner posts are shown. Use foreign_posts=1 option (e.g. subscribe to vk.com/my_group?foreign_posts=1 ) to get them.

    Discontinued vkontakte-feed feeds are handled automatically and should work again.

  20. Facebook Videos (again)

    Some Facebook videos are not getting embedded anymore again. There are two different cases apparently.

    Videos from this page are embedded with the Facebook video player: https://www.facebook.com/172573132808153/posts/2577516702313772

    These videos are getting displayed as image thumbnails:
