Add Hacker News/YCombinator support

David Allix 6 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 6 years ago 0

It will be really great if you can add this feature, in a similar way of hckrnews.com.

Answer

Thanks for the suggestion, David! I will add this to the list for our team to review :) Have a great day! 


UPDATE: 

At this time, the team doesn't feel that it will be able to add specific sorting support (like the requested Hacker News / YCombinator). However, if you still want to use FlowReader and receive their news - here's their feed: https://news.ycombinator.com/rss :D Sorry for any inconvenience! 

Answer
Hi Mosey, 


Thanks so much for the thorough description and great ideas from the whole Flow Team! We really appreciate it. 


~ Elle 

UPDATE: Our redesign incorporates some of the suggested ideas! :) More to come!

Notifications in browser

Rafał Puka 4 years ago • updated by Diana Bocco 4 years ago 1
I suggest you create an extension for popular Web browsers that will display notifications of new posts in the reader. Users will not have to constantly open a new tab with Flowreader to see if there are new posts.

Google Reader feed list import failed to import anything

Mel Mil 6 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 6 years ago 0
I use 2-step authentication on my Google account.
It seems you can't import my feeds - I have an empty list.
Answer

Hi, I apologize for any inconvenience. I don't think the 2-step authentication is causing the problem. Most likely, it is some other problem from our end. I've sent the issue over to the developers and they are taking a look now. I'll email you as soon as I know more. Thanks for your patience!

After i added some feeds the page stays blank... i dont see anything exept the Post new button. And that one does not even work.

Hi Tobas, Sorry for the issue! We are aware of the problem and trying to get it fixed. Some users have been experiencing delayed imports as a result of a huge spike in traffic yesterday. Thanks for your patience!

Sometimes I want to stop reading some feed, but I don't want to delete it, because I might want to read it again in future.

Cannot add some RSS feeds, which works in feedly :( Problem is in non-valid RSS feeds.

Jiří Pavlíček 5 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 4 years ago 4
Im moving from feedly. Some RSS which works in feedly, cannot be added to FlowReader. I tested validity of this RSSs, and problem occurres on non-valid RSS feeds. For example www.czechcrunch.cz/feed/.
Answer
Hi Jiri, 

That's great news - we're glad to have you :)! We took a look, and it seems that our library isn't able to process certain non-valid RSS feeds that other libraries (such as Feedly's) are able to. 

The development team is going to see if they can make our library more tolerant so that they work in our service. I've also contacted Czech Crunch directly to see if they can fix their feed. 

Thanks very much for reporting this to us and we'll do our best to get this figured out.

Facebook and twitter update problem

Vašek Brychta 5 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 5 years ago 3
It's a bit weird and the exact behavior differs case from case. But the updates are downloaded very rarely and sometimes are not downloaded at all. The manual button doesn't work either.

One case is as follows:
When I log out and log in, after about five minutes the updates downloads. Next download of updates is about an hour later and nothing more (not even after next two hours). I must log out and log in again and wait about five minutes to get new items.
Answer
Hi Vasek! 

Sorry to hear you're having issues. I'm forwarding this report to the team now, and I'll update this as soon as I know more. 

Thanks for your patience!

UPDATE: Our developers are aware of the problem and working to fix it. It's a longer standing issue that we've been trying to solve so I apologize for any inconvenience!
