So I don’t know if it was intentional, (like to solve https://getsatisfaction.com/newsblur/… ), but it definitely didn’t used to behave this way: mark all as read for all site stories now also marks as read items in shared stories.
The division between these two types of stories is a bit awkward. If they were both displayed together, then fine, mark them all as read. But as they are separate, this change in behaviour is surprising.
I didn’t change anything, but it should only be marking your subscriptions as read and not unread shared stories.
Well, I don’t know what to say, it has changed for me…here’s a screencast showing the behaviour:
Anything else I can do to help debug?
I found some shared stories marked as read, but I believe that is due to the background updating. I typically mark previous as read, but am sure news blur is adding earlier stories to the list AFTER I’ve marked that timescale as read. So, next time I mark previous as read, it marks the new ones as read also. So even though I haven’t seen them, they were there.
I even found this is happening in the Android app, v4.0.1.
This is in the Android app
So this is still happening… really weird that no one else seems to be reporting it
So what’s happening in that screencast is that the story that is shared is also a feed you subscribe to.
ok, that would explain it I suppose. thanks for the reply.
OK I had a look at this again today, and it definitely removed 4 links that were not in my feeds, I have not subscribed to those sites. One was this story from The Dish. http://dish.andrewsullivan.com/2014/12/10/the-truth-about-torture-revisited/
