#1022 Feed items marked as read automatically when switching away

Just switched from 1.8.7 to 1.9.4.

In 1.9.4 if I click away from a feed that has many items unread (by clicking on another feed) , it marks all the items in that feed as read except for the top item. I don't have any settings that I can find telling it to do that. And, to clarify, I don't expect any items to be marked as read unless I have actually read them/clicked on them.

Is this meant to be a new feature or is it a bug?

Thanks

    In which viewing mode (2 pane, 3 pane email-like or 3 pane wide-view) do you have configured the two feeds between which you are switching?

     
  • 3-panel email-like I would call it, but I don't know how to distinguish between email-like and wide-view.

     
  • If it's not easily reproducible on your side, I'll go through the code on my side to see what's going on.

    Sorry I cannot reproduce the effect. If you could try to debug this I'd be really grateful!

    You can determine the current view from the radio button in the "View" menu in the main menu.

    alito: Were you successful debugging the issue?

     
  • No, sorry. I tried to go through a debug-all output but switching feeds created WAY too much data (tens of megabytes) in a way which seemed clearly wrong. I might have just been unlucky and I did it at exactly the same time that polling for updates started, but I didn't have much time to go through it properly. I'll try again sometime soon when I get some free time.

    It might well be that by running with --debug-xxx that you change the timing and the issue cannot be reproduced :-)

    There were no other users reporting the problem, so I'm closing the bug.
