Beta 19 fixed the sorting issue with subscriptions..YAY! There is God! Unfortunately, I do not know in which beta version it happened, but the total number of subsription results is gone. Can we get that back? I use it regularly to alert myself to cleaning out or downloading from hidden subscriptions. I suspect others do too.
Is there a specific forum or link to give feedback for beta testers? I am a new beta tester.
Which number do you mean? I have an indicator in the sidebar for the number of 'unread' subscriptions and, if I collapse the Subscription entry there's a 'total unread' number shown
It includes the hidden ones - I don't think anything changed recently that would affect the way this works
Ahhhh! Like you said, 1000 words :)
What has been re-organised is the structure of the sidebar - once-upon-a-time subscriptions were a top-level item with individual subscriptions indented below them - if you went back far enough in time you would have the current behaviour but without the 'Content Discovery' parent. Subscription totals were only shown when collapsed.
Then 'Content Discovery' was introduced and a hierarchy level removed - 'Subscriptions' at the same level as the individual subscriptions. Nobody changed the code when they did this so the result was that the totals were always shown (there was no way to expand the Subscriptions entry so it behaved as always collasped)
Then the hierarchy was changed again to make individual subscriptions children on 'Subscriptions'. The existing code started 'working' again and only showed totals when collapsed...
I am guessing that the reason the totals were only shown when collapsed was to either improve performance (expanded was the expected default case and therefore no need to work out the totals) or visual clutter.
Given then the totals seem to useful all the time I'll look into getting them back.
