Items not shown or deleted Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have mixed feelings so far, by ecample I have subscribed a feed which has about 50 items/articles today so far (and certainly yesterday at least so many, too) and I did not read one of them for the last 2 days but only 15 items from today (last 2 or 3 hours) are shown in Bamboo so does it clear or delete entries under certain conditions (more than x items, after closing Firefox or something like that) ? But that would be rather ridiculous, I expect that I can still read articles (shown in Bamboo) after 2 or 3 or even many more days if I do not mark them as read or delete them, of course

So what can be the reason for this ? I cannot find a recycle bin or trash in Bamboo so far so I cannot check if it deleted items or marked them as read so that they are away but I think that it does not show several items or just deletes them under certain conditions which is not very comfortable and not the way a feed reader should work

And how does one delete single items from the list after having read them (or not) ? Clicking on "Delete" deletes the whole feed so one has to resubscribe it, rather counterintuitive in my opinion

Bamboo is easily one of the most useful and well-made addons ever made for a web browser. It's builtin, customizable and handy.

It's not just works, it works better.

Please add delete entries option. It would be great!

I Love this feeder!
but lately there has been a problem when I update the feeds since the new update. There's a triangle with an exclamation mark on the side of some feeds, the links are good and names aren't change and that triangle appears randomly within my feeds, some day one has the triangle the other doesn't. Oh and when that triangle appears feeds doesn't update, I have to refresh and then they update.

Just perfect. It's what I needed.

firefox freezes during Bamboo updates Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi Julien,
I love your add-on!
lately I upgraded my firefox to 36.01 and Bamboo to 2.1.2 and now everytime bamboo updates its feeds - firefox freezes (not responding) until Bamboo finishes its update interval.
Any idea what can I do ?
Tnx

Hi,
is this happening within a brand new Firefox profile?
In this case please send me more information by email. (bamboo.feedreader@gmail.com)

Cache is not the best place to save data! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

At least not MacOSX. Upgrade to the OS has obliterated the cache and therefore all my feeds.

Good first impression, minor annoyances Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Edit:
I find it a bit rude of you to imply I am unable to read. The poor placement of the version information on the addon page made it easy to overlook. That said, I apologize and have removed the misinformation from my review.

I really like this addon and the functionality it provides. It is evident that a lot of work went into this, and I appreciate that.

Overall, I find the UI quite tasteful, but two minor quirks are leaving a bit of a sour taste in my mouth.
1) I am not a fan of CSS3 text shadows and would much prefer bold text to indicate selected feeds and groups.
2) Icons on the feed entry list are not aligned in a straight line when both short and long timestamps (e.g. "11:20" and "03/03/2015") are present, which is somewhat displeasing to the eye.

Last but not least, I find the lack of sync capabilities rather disappointing.

With these little annoyances removed, this addon could easily be a 5/5 for me.

I regret that you are not able to read informations available on this page (see version information).

Bamboo is an open source software.
All sources are available in the add-on file.

The development process is not collaborative and do not use tools like GitHub because i do not have enough time for managing contributions.

You could customize the add-on style without creating your own version by using your userContent.css file.

Отлично! И очень продуманно.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1). 

only working... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How about add configuration options for each update to the latest news individually?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1). 

This will not be implemented.
You could only choose between all feeds or favorite feeds.

No automatic updates. No counters on tool bar icon. These are basic items that should be included in a news reader.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1). 

Automatic updates could be activated from the option tab and update menu.
The toolbar button text could also be customized.

Nice reader - auto refresh would be nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I recently installed this reader and I like it. The only feature that I would like to see is a configurable refresh (say, 1 to 120 minutes). Maybe the toolbar icon could flash to show the number has changed recently.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1). 

You could define the automatic refresh delay from the option tab in the update menu.

To flash the unread number you could use a pinned tab with the "Tab badge" Firefox add-on.

When importing feeds from another reader, the feeds are not in alphabetical order as in the actual reader.

Is this a bug or what goes wrong?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

The reader does not sort the feeds during import.

Need a button to reset prefs to default! Even reinstall do not helps.

This feature will be added in the new release.

I was a long term user of an other feed reader addon, but it turned to wrong direction for me. Then I tried Bamboo.
Good job. Recommended.

补充一下:
在弹窗模式,列表方式下,第一次点击标题时展开显示文章内容,向下拉阅读。
到这里时一切都还很好,但问题在于,阅读过后你想要关掉它、或是在新标签中打开它,还得重新向上拉直到看到标题才行。如果文章比较长,这个过程实在是让人很不爽!
希望在弹窗最上方的工具栏增加针对当前文章的“关闭”“打开”“标记为已读”的按钮。或是显示在文章最下方也行。

Modern with a lot of user settings Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used Brief but was looking for something new, so I've found Bamboo. It's very modern and fast, all my dozens of feeds are loaded almost instantly and not in 10 minutes like in Brief. There are a lot of settings to customize the user interface, like the colors or the size etc... . Very important to me was the feature to display content of feeds. I really like this addon and I think I will use it. Thanks for sharing this addon to the author! But I have to agree with others: A caching system and the ability to delete entries from the cache would be great, with this, bamboo would be the definately best standalone feed viewer for Firefox.

Very nice...but no cache??? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice RSS reader, some really nice features. Whats it lacking? Cache. This only displays current articles in the XML feed but doesn't cache articles from previous XML updates. I subscribe to hackaday.com but their feed only shows the current day (about 7 articles) and if I don't get to it every day I lose history of previous articles.
