I found out what was causing our problems. Netvibes added a new feature to prevent the number of articles in your dashboard from becoming overwhelming. This appears to be a feature that cannot be turned off. This is enough for me to find a replacement service.
I don't know how to link this but you can copy and past the web address below for a knowledge base article describing this new feature.
It just happened to me too. In my feeds, everything posted before september 5th was automatically marked as read and cannot be marked as unread. I used netvibes because it can keep a long history on my webcomic feeds. I now have more than a hundred webcomics with no idea what I have and haven't read. I really regret not making consistent backups of my feeds.
Is this a new limitation for non-VIP members? Is it just a bug that now cost me tons of time to catch up on my webcomics? Do I need to find another RSS reader to use instead?
If it is just a bug, is it possible to reset my account back a couple weeks without a backup? That would be a lot easier than reading every webcomic I follow just to find out where I was.Brian supported this idea ·
