Reader shows only seven posts, five of them are Flickr in multiple languages

  1. I would like to keep up with the WordPress blogs I follow, but all I ever see in my reader is seven posts. That's the first problem. Why does it stop at six or seven posts? What kind of a reader is it if it doesn't let me scroll infinitely, reading as many of the most recent blog posts as I desire?

    The second, related, problem is that I follow the Flickr blog, and I specifically follow the English version of the blog feed; however, WordPress reader shows me the Flickr blog feed in five different languages, which takes up most of the seven recent posts Reader will show me.

    What I want to do is: 1) Follow the Flickr blog in English only; and 2) Read infinitely in the reader, not just be stuck with seven blog posts.

    The blog I need help with is danielgreene.com.

  2. Why does it stop at six or seven posts?

    The Flickr blog feed I'm following is http://blog.flickr.net/en/feed/atom/. The "en" in the URL means English, and when I read the feed in raw form, I see only English in it, yet when I read the feed in WordPress Reader, it displays posts in English, French, German, Chinese (or Japanese?), Portuguese, and Spanish. I love these languages and can read some of them pretty well, but I really only want to read in English and keep my Reader free for other blogs.

    Now... here's something interesting I noticed. None of those steps I took made any difference. However, just out of curiosity I scrolled through the pages and pages and pages of tags in the right sidebar that have accumulated over the seven years I've been blogging with WordPress, and when I finally got to the bottom… suddenly all these blog posts showed up in the feed! Pages and pages of them! Now I discovered a workaround, but a tedious one. I would like not to have to scroll through the hundreds of tags in the right sidebar until I get all the other posts to show up. I hope there's a solution! :-)

    Thanks for tagging this thread for Staff assistance.

  4. Hi again Daniel,
    That workaround is weird. I use Firefox 22 on an old computer running Windows XP and never have any issues at all (fingers crossed). That explains why I'm reluctant to switch to the new computer I got before last Christmas, which is sitting right to this one. lol :D

  5. I've just reported this issue to our developers. I'll keep you informed!

    Thank you :)
