Having counters reflect different things is a highly confusing and inconsistent thing. This has been brought up before several years ago and my opinion on this has not changed. It is an unread counter. Nothing more, nothing less.

>Instead of an unread count for starred items, can it show the total item count (on the web and in the app)? It would be a nice visual reminder that there are articles that I've saved for later.

You can also use starred as a general archive if you don't need to save them for later. This way you'll have thousands of articles seemingly unread in the feed at all times which would be bloody annoying.

>I'm sure most people don't publish, but it's still there as a button in the app and as a virtual feed in the list.

The difference is first one is a valid feature with actual uses, as opposed to mark as unread which is a kludge / debugging tool. I don't want people to continue doing this mark as unread shit which is why the feature is not emphasized in the UI. On the other hand, I understand that some people can't change, which is why it is actually there.

I feel like I'm stating the obvious way too much today.

I found this thread while searching for an answer as to why "mark as unread" was no longer in the tt-rss drop down menu. I see that there was already a discussion around the merits of the function, but I hope it is not to late for me to explain my use of it and why I miss it.

I use the Star feature to mark items that I have read, but would like keep available for future reference (to reference in a post of my own, a recipe to try, etc). I used the mark unread feature primarily on my mobile device if I was skimming through a feed while waiting somewhere. I'd look at the short articles I'd have time for and mark longer ones unread for later. When I got home I those would then be waiting for me at the top of the feed as I'd go through them in the evening. I would also use it to mark posts with videos in them as unread since I couldn't view them on the android app.

Unless the feature was removed because it conflicted with another feature you are adding, would it be possible to have the option to enable for people that found it useful?

Thanks for all the work you have put into tt-rss.

Seriously. It's in the actionbar now.

Strange, I'm talking about the bottom right icon here (the envelope)

Any chance of the app moving on to the next unread feed after clicking Mark all as read? It's unintuitive to be faced by a blank screen rather than something else to read

Thanks
