    That's interesting idea. I'm thinking to implement alphabetic sorting (for forum feeds to group posts by title), maybe I'll do this one too.

    Roadmap is more or less top requests from https://bazqux.uservoice.com/forums/190752-general/filters/top
    * mobile web interface
    * feeds management (finding feeds that no longer update)
    * reeder like all/unread/starred switch
    * themes (changing colors/fonts)
    * improved sharing
    and sorting by subject is somewhere here. I think I'll implement it but no too soon (maybe in 0.5-1 year).

    Unfortunately I need to implement more frequently requested features first.

    Can only suggest to try Vienna RSS app (if you're on Mac). It supports sorting by title.

    Groupping by title is still uneasy thing to do. And I'm not sure that it will be implemented in the near future.

    I'm afraid it won't be implemented in the near future.

    Unfortunately I'm not sure that it will be implemented in the near future. Internally reader is not designed with sorting/grouping by title in mind. It's definitely possible to implement it but it's not an easy thing to do.

    Thank you for explanation. I'll probably implement alphabetical sorting but can't say when. Too many other things to do.

    Interesting, what kind of feeds require alphabetical ordering?

    Hm. But if you're in folder then there is more than one feed here, so it's unclear what feed title to show. And in folders feed titles already shown below article subject (from "Feed Name")

    AdminVladimir Shabanov (Developer, BazQux Reader) commented  · 

    I'm not yet sure that it's necessary to duplicate feed name. There are not enough space for it.

    Feed title is already visible on top of articles list when you select feed. Although, it scrolled up after.

    It's possible to bulk unstar or untag items (right click on Starred items or tag in left panel and select Unstar/Untag).

    Bulk tagging filtered items is interesting idea but it's low priority at the moment.

    Duplicate articles are more related to https://bazqux.uservoice.com/forums/190752-general/suggestions/4169270-add-a-way-to-identify-duplicate-articles-i-e-sam
    Although it's about articles in different feeds.

    You could mail me these feeds so I could take a look. In general BazQux is trying to ignore duplicated articles.

    Unfortunately, I can't yet say when I get to it. But I defeinitely plan to add subscriptions management

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminVladimir Shabanov (Developer, BazQux Reader) commented  · 

    I'm planning to make some kind of subscription management. It mostly for removing old feeds that aren't updated. But I can include an option to find duplicates too.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminVladimir Shabanov (Developer, BazQux Reader) commented  · 

    That's strange. Feeds with the same URL should not be duplicated. Are duplicated feeds have the same URL (right click on the feed and then "Feed address") ?

    Or maybe feeds are in different folders?

    BTW: you can subscribe to your YouTube subscriptions using http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/USERNAME/newsubscriptionvideos

    Interesting, why you're trying to mark older items as unread? To browse history you could just select "Show all" option in drop-down menu below search ("N New" button).

    I don't understand. When you click on article title (or date) you're just directed on article web page (article link). I can't direct you somewhere else.

    Or do you mean show full content of truncated articles. There is a Readability button (or keyboard shortcut 'g') for this.

    I don't understand. Where these links are coming from?

    If you want to open links from posts you could press 'c' many times (opens post in new tab and goes to next post).

    If you like to have some place to keep links I would recommend some third party bookmarking service (or maybe just a draft in gmail).

    I'm planning to add notes and external links bookmarking in future. But I think it will look somehow different from this concept.

    Fetch interval depends on last tweet time. Usually 0.5-1.5 hours. For frequently updated feeds it can be each 15-30 minutes. Last 20 items are fetched. So if there are more than 20 tweets in half an hour older tweets can be missed.

    I'm still planning tighter integration with Twitter.

    And you should already be able to subscribe to Twitter lists.

    I'll think about it. Personally, if the feed already have some filter I usually press 'w' to open filters window and then edit filter by adding " OR new_keyword" to the end.

    Perhaps it would be good to check whether feed/feeds already have filter and ask whether user want separate filter or to edit existing one.

    Sorting by filter targets with option to combine filters is a good idea.

    You can mute feed using filters. Select feed, search for "*" (everything), click "New filter" and then "Hide found items".

    To un-mute feed go to settings => "Filters & smart streams" (or press 'w') and then edit or delete filter.

    To mute many feeds you can edit filter and select all the feeds you need to mute.

    Yes, tagging and using IFTTT to send from tag feed to Wordpress should work. However I'm leaning towards adding custom sharing URLs.

    You could use IFTTT with feed channel and send posts to your mail (or Pocket, or Twitter favorites -- IFTTT has many possible actions).

    You could also setup public feed for folder or all items (right click on folder or Latest and select "Public feed" => "Enable"). It will contain posts from all feeds combined.

    There is a keyboard shortcut to go to Starred items "d then s". Most probably it will be used in this Reeder-style switch I'm thinking to implement.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminVladimir Shabanov (Developer, BazQux Reader) commented  · 

    Labelled news -- do you mean items with tags?

    I'm thinking to make Reeder-like switch: Unread/All/Starred. And probably add 4th button for tagged items if user have them (tags are used by less people than stars).

    But I think to show tags list, not feeds with tagged items in this 4th mode.

    I don't think yet that I will implement it. Smart streams are work like tags from API point of view. And mobile apps doesn't support tags nested in folders.

    Read posts are hidden by default. You could use filters to hide uninteresting posts. I don't think that additional way to hide posts is necessary.

    One feed can be placed in several folders. I.e. folder is actually a tag. So you could try to organize feeds that way. Most apps should support feed in several folders.

    But still I don't like additional complexity of managing nested folders. Too few people have asked about it.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminVladimir Shabanov (Developer, BazQux Reader) commented  · 

    I'm not planning it yet. The problem with nested folders is that mobile apps doesn't support them and not many people has requested nested folders.

    I don't see tags in commafeed. Do you mean nested folders?
