Rory Walsh - 2012-12-13

I'm trying to pull down all the old posts from a number of feeds in Google Reader.
Some of these have +1000 items.

I've set the maximum count to 5,000 in the global clean up settings and then subscribed to relevant feeds in GReader.

I'm only getting the most recent 15 items though.

Has the ability to download everything gone or am I just doing something wrong?

Grateful for any assistance,
