Description sparhawk 2014-06-24 02:03:31 UTC
Version: 4.13.2 (not in the list?)

RSSOwl has an undo functionality. Occasionally, I accidentally mark news as read. It'd be great to be able to undo this action in Akregator, so that I can re-find my unread news. Often, I find myself accidentally missing several news items since I cannot undo.

I think RSSOwl also lets you undo deletion of feeds, which might be helpful to some users.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mark news as read.
2. Attempt to undo.
Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
Last "read" news item is again marked as unread.

It's also be useful to allow undo when multiple articles are marked as read, and keep a history for multiple iterations of undo.

FWIW I've gone back to RSSOwl solely for this functionality. (RSSOwl was crashing a lot for me on the previous version, but now it's fixed.)

Thank you for the bug report.

As this report hasn't seen any changes in 5 years or more, we ask if you can please confirm that the issue still persists.

If this bug is no longer persisting or relevant please change the status to resolved.

I appreciate the "thank you", but the lack of response after I try to contribute to KDE means I don't bother filing bugs/requests any more.

In a similar vein, I can't confirm or deny this bug because I don't use Akregator any more, and haven't done for six years.

What about showing a warning before "Mark Feed as Read"?
