Google Reader adds “Select a Folder’ when subscribing to a new feed

Official Google Reader Blog: Bug swatting

Yay! One more niggle crossed off of my list of Google Reader irritations:

We also snuck in a small feature with this release: when Folder menuyou subscribe to a feed, you’ll get an “Add to a folder…” drop-down. This way, you can move that feed to a folder right there and then, without having to go to the settings screen.

Thanks, guys and gals! 🙂

Update: Uh-oh. I just tried it, and it didn’t work. I didn’t see the selector shown above when I subscribed to a new feed. Maybe it takes a while for the change to roll out to everyone? I’ll give them a day or so to get this straightened out.

  1. Yes, I reloaded (even after clearing cache and cookies).

    What I discovered is that the “select a folder” appears only when I copy and paste a feed URL into the “Add Subscription” button in the Google Reader interface.

    If I use the “Subscribe” bookmarklet, or, what I always use, the “feed” button in Firefox to select “Subscribe with Google Reader”, the folder selection doesn’t appear.

    That why I wasn’t seeing it – I never use the “Add Subscription” button in Google Reader itself.

    Is there any way to extend this functionality to feeds that are added via the bookmarklet/Firefox 2 subscribe mechanism?

    Thanks for the response! 🙂
